Liver Function Tests: Breaking Through Conventional Thinking About Liver Health Testing
HepQuant is a privately-held, early-stage medical diagnostics company with unique, patented and patent-pending technology for assessing liver function of patients with chronic liver disease. HepQuant technologies, licensed from the University of Colorado Denver (UCD), have been advanced with the intent to profoundly impact the liver disease landscape – including the research, treatment and patient communities – with diagnostic products that are accurate and minimally invasive.

Highlights from the 2nd Annual NASH Summit – Boston | April 2018
- “Defining and Monitoring Liver Disease in Chronic Hepatitis C: A Comparison of the Disease Severity Index (DSI) from the HepQuant SHUNT test with Ishak Fibrosis (IFS) from Liver Biopsy.” Everson GT, Helmke SM. Hepatology 2018;68:910A. Annotation: This study suggests that DSI may be more sensitive than IFS in measuring serial changes in disease in patients with chronic hepatitis C.
- “Defining Disease Severity and Measuring Progression in Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC): A Comparison of the Disease Severity Index (DSI) from the HepQuant SHUNT Test with Serum Alkaline Phosphatase (Alk Phos).” Helmke SM, Everson GT. Hepatology 2018;1087A. Annotation: This study suggests that DSI may be more sensitive than Alk Phos in measuring serial changes in disease in patients with PSC.
