Recently, the Baveno VI consensus workshop  highlighted the diagnostic role of noninvasive techniques (NITs) such as liver stiffness measurement (LSM) in defining the presence of CSPH
and EV and proposed the new term "compensated advanced chronic liver disease (cACLD)" to better define patients who present severe fibrosis and initial cirrhosis.
The carrot seed protein hydrolysate (CSPH
) derived was lyophilized and stored in -20[degrees]C for further analysis.
Nearly three-quarters of the patients in the study had CSPH
at baseline and 35% achieved a sustained virologic response, while 19% developed liver decompensation, according to Dr.
As the cost and complexities of currently available modalities to detect CSPH
could be limiting the identification of many CSPH
patients, the company believes that the availability of a more convenient breath-based test could eventually increase the market's overall size.
The mechanical stability of CSPH
is too poor, the presence of NaCMC improved mechanical stability, which prevent the breakage of SPHC during gastric contraction.
