Senior executives at HepQuant will be available for one-on-one meetings with attendees at the Biotech Showcase.  HepQuant’s senior team will also be attending the 38th Annual J.P. Morgan Conference and available to meet from Sunday, January 12th –  Thursday, January 16th.

HepQuant is bringing a disruptive new gold standard to market, “a liver function test” to address the Chronic Liver Disease and NASH markets. Research studies have encompassed over 1,600 tests in more than 700 subjects across the spectrum of Chronic Liver Disease.  The company is currently conducting a Pivotal Study related to varices management with plans for a PMA submission and US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) review 2020 – 2021.  In addition, six major pharmaceutical companies are using HepQuant tests in current clinical trials. FDA, key opinion leaders and payers have encouraged the use of liver function testing in drug development and clinical trials. HepQuant has 35 patents awarded or pending. HepQuant currently is engaging commercial partners in discussions to accelerate commercialization. 

“HepQuant is conducting and enrolling our pivotal trial to support a potential market approval in varices management. In addition, many NASH trials have struggled due to lack of quality endpoints. HepQuant believes its tests offer advantages in screening for NASH and monitoring NASH treatments. The need for a genuine next generation global liver function test is more evident than ever before,” said Dr. Greg Everson, CEO and Chief Medical Officer at HepQuant.  “We hope to engage partners at Biotech Showcase and J.P. Morgan Conference to accelerate our technology towards the market in the near future.”
