ProSciento Presents Scientific Data at the 2nd Annual Nash Summit

SAN DIEGO, April 19, 2018 – ProSciento, a full scope clinical R&D services provider focused exclusively on metabolic diseases, will present scientific data at the 2nd Annual NASH Summit in Boston, April 23-25, 2018. ProSciento’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Linda Morrow, will also present “Notes from the Field: Strategies for Successful NAFLD & NASH Trials” at the Summit’s morning plenary session on Wednesday, April 25.

The poster presentation, co-authored with OWL Metabolomics, is titled “Application of a Non-Invasive Integrated Screening Algorithm to Improve Enrollment in NAFLD/NASH Clinical Trials.” The poster summarizes data from an initial pre-screening program to investigate the utility of ProSciento’s non-invasive screening algorithm combined with OWL’s lipidomic testing panel to identify individuals with a high probability of eligibility for NAFLD/NASH clinical studies. The program included 204 individuals with type 2 diabetes and 178 obese, non-diabetic individuals. Results indicate that the integrated approach may be a scalable, efficient means to identify individuals with steatosis or steatohepatitis prior to MRI or biopsy and therefore reduce screen failure rates in enrollment phase of NAFLD/NASH clinical trials.

ProSciento’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Marcus Hompesch, and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Linda Morrow, will both attend the Summit. To inquire about a meeting, please contact bd@prosciento.com.
