AASLD Liver Meeting – HepQuant attended the AASLD Liver Meeting in San Francisco, Nov. 9 – 13th. The company presented 2 posters:

  • “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.
