' ... because the liver is a source of many diseases, and is a noble organ that serves many organs, almost all of them: so it suffers, it is not a small suffering, but a great and manifold one'
Researchers from all disciplines are invited to contact us if you are interested in joining our team or collaborate on a certain topic.

The LiMAx test
The LiMAx test is an innovative liver function test. This bedside procedure allows the detection of actual (enzymatic) liver function capicity in real time. In particular, after liver surgery the LiMAx test enables the early diagnosis of postoperative liver failure and provides useful diagnostic information for decision making in other liver related diseases. Currently the Charité University Hospital Berlin and other university hospitals in Europe use this test in clinical routine and research projects.
