It is then of particular importance to identify NASH patients as they are at greatest risk of developing cardiovascular diseases and complications such as cirrhosis, liver failure or hepatocellular carcinoma. There is a need, in NAFLD management, to develop non-invasive methods to detect NASH and t...
