developing unique and non-invasive blood tests for liver cancers and fibrosis-cirrhosis

Our technology could revolutionize care and treatment for people at risk due to chronic liver disease—both people with viral hepatitis (chronic hepatitis B and C infections) and the rapidly growing population with non-viral hepatitis due to obesity and metabolic disease.


Glycotest blood tests are being developed to provide information on the likelihood of serious liver disease like cancer or fibrosis-cirrhosis by employing technology designed to measure two kinds of disease signals:

» The amount of the monosaccharide fucose that appears abnormally on certain serum glycoproteins—to indicate likelihood of disease.

» The pattern of glycoproteins that is abnormally fucosylated—to monitor specific diseases like HCC, CCA or fibrosis-cirrhosis.

Novel Disease Signals

Proprietary biomarkers and assays based on glycoproteins with sugars that are abnormally altered in liver disease.

Non-invasive Blood Tests

Algorithm-driven biomarker panels that use standard blood samples to measure likelihood of liver disease.

Early Detection

Early detection of curable liver cancer and other liver diseases to improve patient outcomes.


- Exploits unique disease signal chemistry (glycoprotein fucosylation) present in liver cancers and fibrosis-cirrhosis but absent in healthy individuals

- Incorporated into highly promising biomarker panels

- Focused on the detection of potentially curable early-stage disease

- May outperform currently available serum biomarkers, such as AFP

- Targeting the worldwide liver cancer threat that kills more than 700,000 people annually and is the fastest growing cause of cancer death in the US
