  • To each disease
    its diagnosis.

    Discover them.

  • Hepatitis B

    Hepatitis B is a viral disease which affects your liver through two main lesions:

    Fibrosis : lesion caused by the reaction of the liver to the attack of the hepatitis B virus. Liver fibrosis is usually compared to a scar that progresses in the liver.

    Activity : inflammation of the liver caused by the virus. Activity is often compared to a burn.

    Your diagnosis
  • Hepatitis C

    Hepatitis C is a viral disease which affects your liver through two main lesions:

    Fibrosis : lesion caused by the reaction of the liver to the attack of the hepatitis C virus. Liver fibrosis is usually compared to a scar that progresses in the liver.

    Activity : inflammation of the liver caused by the virus. Activity is often compared to a burn.

    Your diagnosis
  • Coinfection

    Patients infected with both HIV and hepatitis B or C virus have the peculiar tendency of developping their hepatitis more quickly. These hepatitises are viral diseases which affect your liver through two main lesions:

    Fibrosis : lesion caused by the reaction of the liver to the attack of the hepatitis virus. Liver fibrosis is usually compared to a scar that progresses in the liver.

    Activity : inflammation of the liver caused by the virus. Activity is often compared to a burn.

    Your diagnosis
  • Alcohol

    The chronic consumption of alcohol can affect your liver through three main lesions:

    Fibrosis : liver lesion related to the excessive or chronic consumption of alcohol. Liver fibrosis is usually compared to a scar that progresses in the liver.

    Steatosis : accumulation of fat in the liver, following the transformation of alcohol into fat. Steatosis is commonly called fatty liver.

    ASH : inflammation of the liver caused by alcohol. ASH is often compared to a burn.

    Your diagnosis
  • Cholesterol

    Cholesterol or triglyceride anomalies can affect your liver through three main lesions:

    Fibrosis : liver lesion related to cholesterol disorders. Liver fibrosis is usually compared to a scar that progresses in the liver.

    Steatosis : ` accumulation of fat in the liver, provoked by anomalies of cholesterol. Steatosis is commonly called fatty liver.

    Nash : inflammation of the liver associated with steatosis (fatty liver). Nash is the excessive reaction of the body to the accumulation of fat in the liver. Inflammation is often compared to a burn.

    Your diagnosis
  • Hypertension

    Hypertension can affect your liver through three main lesions:

    Fibrosis : liver lesion related to hypertension. Liver fibrosis is usually compared to a scar that progresses in the liver. Hypertension is often associated with cholesterol disorders and diabetes.

    Steatosis : accumulation of fat in the liver, consequence of hypertension. Steatosis is commonly called fatty liver.

    Nash : inflammation of the liver associated with steatosis (fatty liver). Nash is the excessive reaction of the body to the accumulation of fat in the liver. Inflammation is often compared to a burn.

    Your diagnosis
  • Diabetes

    Diabetes can affect your liver through three main lesions:

    Fibrosis : liver lesion related to diabetes. Liver fibrosis is usually compared to a scar that progresses in the liver.

    Steatosis : accumulation of fat in the liver, consequence of diabetes. Steatosis is commonly called fatty liver.

    Nash : inflammation of the liver associated with steatosis (fatty liver). Nash is the excessive reaction of the body to the accumulation of fat in the liver. Inflammation is often compared to a burn.

    Your diagnosis
  • Drug

    The use of intravenous drugs is a major means of contamination by the hepatitis B and C viruses. These hepatitises are viral diseases which affect your liver through two main lesions:

    Fibrosis : lesion caused by the reaction of the liver to the attack of the hepatitis virus. Liver fibrosis is usually compared to a scar that progresses in the liver.

    Activity : inflammation of the liver caused by the virus. Activity is often compared to a burn.

Biopsy is a medical procedure which consists of taking a liver sample using an adapted needle for analyzing it under the microscope.

FibroTest is a diagnostic tool based on a simple blood test.

Biopsy is an imperfect diagnostic tool and has a mean error of 30%.
It is not without risk or pain: 1 patient out of 3 complains of pain, 6 out of 1,000 have severe complications and regrettably, death occurs for 3 patients per 10,000 biopsies, which is unacceptable for a diagnosis.

FibroTest is a simple blood test which has the same relevance as a 25 mm biopsy.

Liver biopsy FibroTest / FibroMax
  • pain: 30% of patients
  • severe complications: 6 out of 1,000
  • death: 3 per 10,000
  • no risk
  • hospitalization
  • simple blood test
  • at your usual laboratory
  • variable result (according to the center and the physician)
  • consistent results: accuracy of a blood test - reproducibility greater than 95%
  • significant risk of error if the biopsy is too small
  • result equivalent to a 25 mm biopsy
  • difficult to repeat for the medical follow-up
  • very easy to repeat (blood test)
  • unfeasible by intercostal route if coagulation disorder, ascites
  • contraindicated if severe respiratory insufficiency
  • unapplicable if acute hepatitis, extrahepatic cholestasis, severe hemolysis, Gilbert's syndrome with high unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia
  • in cases of acute inflammatory syndrome, just postpone blood test
  • unfavorable risk/benefit ratio
  • excellent risk/benefit ratio
  • enables other problems associated with fibrosis to be dtected, such as activity or steatosis
  • our FibroMax test enables these diagnoses to be made with the same blood test: activity (ActiTest) and steatosis (SteatoTest).

The benefit/risk ratio of biopsy is not suitable for the diagnoses of the most common liver diseases. Biopsy remains useful as a second-line tool in cases where the FibroTest are not applicable or in rare liver diseases or complexes.

In conclusion, FibroTest has the same diagnostic value as a 25 mm biopsy, using a simple blood test, without pain and without risk, and can be easily repeated by the physician if necessary.
