Accelerating drug development, de-risking trial execution and preparing for commercialization with reference liver non-invasive point-of-care testing solutions
Echosens provides best-in-class liver non-invasive tests,
to help reduce screen failure rate and monitore treatment response.
FibroScan® accurately assesses presence
of steatosis, fibrosis, cirrhosis & active NASH.
Increase the control of your trials with our expertise in NASH diagnostic,
we support you to standardise the capabilities of FibroScan®
and maximise operator proficiency.
The same solutions are used in clinical trials and in routine practice,
which allows you to accelerate your market development.
clinical trials as NIT provider
up to 17
millions of exams per year
years of clinical experience in liver
Use of LSM by VCTE™, CAP™ and Fast™ to pre-screen patients
and significantly reduce biopsy screen failure rate.
FibroScan® and Scores provide capabilities to monitor treatment response.
PHASE IV & NASH F4
Use of LSM by VCTE™, Agile 4 score, and SSM by VCTE™ to rule-in presence of cirrhosis.
Our solutions allow you to collect as much data as possible on non-invasive tests to build up evidence to support the removal of liver biopsy as a primary endpoint.
ASSESSEMENT & RECOMMENDATIONS
We support you in qualifying clinical sites (surveys, project management) and accelerate their readiness for first inclusion.
CUSTOMIZED SITES & OPERATORS TRAINING
This standardization of sites capabilities and future operators maximize the performances of FibroScan® solutions.
IN-TRIAL QUALITY CONTROL
Echosens provides actionable Quality Control to secure the quality of data collected during the trial and triggers corrective action in a timely manner (alerts and tailored operator retraining).
Enlarge diagnostic capacity when your drugs hit the market with
a cost-effective test, associated workflow and established recognition.
Echosens is engaged with many sponsors in screening
and monitoring patients for clinical trials in NAFLD/NASH.
More than 1,000 clinical institutions chose FibroScan® for their trials.
“The use of FibroScan® has tremendous value:
Once we have a patient on an FDA-approved treatment, we can potentially use FibroScan® to monitor response to therapy.
For those people that aren’t responding, we may stop the ineffective drug.
For those that are responding, we can provide positive reinforcement to continue to take their medication, remain compliant with their medication and effect a positive outcome that is potentially longstanding and will have a positive impact down the road on their long-term outcomes.
Finally, where we are able to utilize VCTE™ down the road, in the sense of predicting long-term outcome, that would be the Holy Grail and the hope for tomorrow.”

“We see a lot of patients with fatty liver disease in our clinics and conduct many clinical trials in this therapeutic area. From a clinical research perspective, FibroScan® helps characterize patients and ultimately improves the rate at which we find patients who will be eligible for participation in clinical trials. It has played an important role at our four clinical research centers, and we are very pleased with this non-invasive means of assessing liver health.”
