ENDRA Life Sciences Inc. (NASDAQ: NDRA), a pioneer of Thermo Acoustic Enhanced UltraSound (TAEUS®), today announced it will host an offsite panel discussion with multidisciplinary experts during the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) annual meeting, The Liver Meeting, taking place November 10-14, 2023, in Boston. The panel will feature three key opinion leaders (KOLs) in the fields of hepatology, endocrinology and radiology sharing their unique perspectives on managing Metabolic-Associated Steatotic Liver Disease (MASLD).
The KOL panelists will include:
- Raza Malik, M.D., Ph.D., FRCP, FAASLD, Chief of Hepatology at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center
- Christos Mantzoros, MD., DSc, Ph.D., Chief of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism at the Boston VA Healthcare System, and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School
- Jing Gao, M.D., FAIUM, Professor of Ultrasound at Rocky Vista University, and Adjunct Professor of Research in Radiology at Weill Cornell Medicine
The invitation-only clinical discussion will be moderated by ENDRA, and the opinions expressed are those of the independent KOL participants and not of ENDRA or the KOLs’ institutions.
“We are delighted to be attending the prestigious AASLD The Liver Meeting and contributing to the topical discussion of early detection and management of MASLD. The assembled panel of multidisciplinary experts are highly respected in their respective fields and will provide diverse perspectives on the management of this disease today and in the future,” stated Francois Michelon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ENDRA.
“With the near-term prospect of therapeutics for treating steatotic liver disease coming to market, there is a pressing clinical need for a non-invasive and cost-effective tool to screen and monitor patients,” he added. “We believe this provides a tremendous opportunity for ENDRA's technology, which has the ability to assess liver fat at the point-of-patient care and may potentially help improve the health of millions of people.”
ENDRA will also be showcasing its TAEUS technology at The Liver Meeting in booth #2801 in Exhibit Hall D at the Hynes Convention Center. The TAEUS device has a De Novo request under review with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is not currently available for sale in the United States.
About ENDRA Life Sciences Inc.
ENDRA Life Sciences is the pioneer of Thermo Acoustic Enhanced UltraSound (TAEUS®), a ground-breaking technology being developed to visualize tissue like MRI, but at 1/50th the cost and at the point of patient care. TAEUS® is designed to work in concert with over 700,000 ultrasound systems in use globally today. TAEUS® is initially focused on the measurement of fat in the liver as a means to assess and monitor Steatotic Liver Disease (SLD) (formerly known as NAFLD-NASH), a chronic liver spectrum that affects over two billion people globally, and for which there are no practical diagnostic tools. Beyond the liver, ENDRA is exploring several other clinical applications of TAEUS®, including visualization of tissue temperature during energy-based surgical procedures.
