HepQuant Results Presented while Attending Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2022


HepQuant, LLC, a Denver, Colorado-based company with a unique, patented and patent-pending technology for evaluating the liver in patients with chronic liver disease, today announced preliminary data from the SHUNT-V Pivotal study in oral and poster presentations at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2022 in San Diego. DDW is the largest international gathering of physicians, researchers and academics in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy and gastrointestinal surgery.

In addition, HepQuant presented data on measuring Hepatic Impairment in relation to six classes of drugs.

Abstract #1: "The HepQuant SHUNT Disease Severity Index (HepQuant DSItm) Can Aid the Decision to Avoid Endoscopic Screening or Surveillance for Varices Needing Treatment." Presenting Author: Dr. Mitch Shiffman, Liver Institute of Virginia, Richmond, VA.

Description: The HepQuant DSI=18.3 showed strong performance in capturing large esophageal varices needing treatment and screening out subjects who didn't (Sensitivity=97%, FNR=3%, NPV=99%) when compared with related transient elastography cutoffs applied to those in the SHUNT-V study who had transient elastography data (Sensitivity=83%, FNR=17%, 98%).

Abstract #2: "The HepQuant's Disease Severity Index (HepQuant DSItm) Outperforms Child-Pugh (CP) Classification in Quantifying Hepatic Impairment for Prediction of Drug Pharmacokinetics (PK) in Chronic Liver Disease." Presenting Author: Dr. Steve Helmke, HepQuant, LLC.

Description: HepQuant DSI strongly correlated with drug pharmacokinetics in six different classes of drug showing potential utility in measuring Hepatic Impairment.
