New data using Antaros full liver analysis presented at EASD in Berlin

October 24th, 2018

There was a great interest at the annual European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) 2018 in Berlin for the results generated by Antaros Medical. The two studies were done in collaboration with AstraZeneca and MedImmune, respectively.

Precision is key when choosing methods for decision making in drug development to ensure accurate understanding of efficacy. NASH/NAFLD studies using MRI-PDFF covers the entire liver in a single breath-hold and enables quantification of changes in total liver fat.

Lars Johansson, CSO, Antaros Medical comments: “The Antaros methodology measures both the liver volume and liver fat from the entire liver. This is of importance to improve the accuracy of liver fat measurements and allows for further understanding of drug specific mode of action.”
