Metabolon Releases Potential Noninvasive Biomarkers Identified in Nash Study

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – Metabolon, Inc. announces a study published in the Metabolism Journal due for release in the paper on April 26, 2010, by Satish C. Kalhan.

Metabolon, Inc., the leader in global metabolism, biomarker discovery and analysis, studied plasma profiles from subjects with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Using Metabolon’s patented global metabolomic profiling platform, the study, authored by Satish C. Kalhan and his collaborators at the Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and with scientists from Metabolon, identified a panel of potential noninvasive biomarkers in NAFLD and Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH). The results represent both a significant step in understanding the disease and for the development of therapeutic interventions.
