Modern disease, modern solutions for NASH-research

02. August 2022 2

NASH can be defined as the liver manifestation of a metabolic disorder and is the most severe form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

NASH, short for Non-Alcoholic Steato Hepatitis, is closely related to the triple epidemic of

  • obesity,
  • pre-diabetes,
  • diabetes.

So research in this field is one of the most pressing, awarding, and life-saving projects a researcher can face these days. PELOBiotech wants to leave a mark here and do its part.

Hepatocytes are the major parenchymal cells responsible for liver function: Its functions include processing of carbohydrates, fats & proteins, vitamin storage, detoxification of substances in the blood, protein synthesis & glycogen storage. Moreover, also functions for the decomposition of red blood cells, plasma proteins, clotting factors, hormones & bile production. And also activate the innate immune system against invading microorganisms.

Our human hepatocytes, together with the recommended media and cultivation tools, will enable you to work with an optimized system.
A large number of different human donors is available. Please contact us about your specific requirements.
