BACKGROUND AND AIMS
Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is the most severe form of fatty liver diseases, and no treatment has been approved so far. Among the reasons for this lack of valid pharmacological treatment, the subjectivity and variability in the pathology reading has been identified as a confounding factor, probably weakening the ability to assess a treatment effect. We have assessed the performances of the first fully-automated user-independent morphometric software (MorphoQuantTM) on liver biopsies.
