Liver Testing for Pharma Trials, Liver Research Trials
Through its Investigational Device Exemption (IDE), HepQuant provides liver testing support services to liver research centers and pharmaceutical companies. The HepQuant tests are designed to evaluate the liver — and levels of hepatic impairment — regardless of the etiology of the liver disease. Specifically, the tests establish a Disease Severity Index score by measuring hepatic blood flow, portal blood flow, and portal-systemic shunt in patients suffering from chronic liver disease (CLD).
