The CANONIC study, a prospective observational study in 1349 patients with decompensated cirrhosis admitted to 29 European hospitals, aimed to characterize a syndrome that later would be referred to as acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF). The CANONIC study has allowed for a comprehensive assessment of the epidemiology, natural history, diagnostic criteria, clinical course, prognosis, prevention and treatment of ACLF.
