  • The UIC (Universal Index for Cirrhosis) index was created based on a study of 771 patients whose etiology of liver disease was: ETOH, NAFLD/NASH, HCV, HBV. Each patients’ stage of fibrosis per liver biopsy and laboratory values drawn near biopsy time were utilized to develop the index.
  • The need for more accurate and rapid identification of affected individuals was the nidus for the development of a readily available index which could be easily performed with available routine laboratory markers in patients with chronic liver disease due to all etiologies.
  • The novel UIC index was validated and superior in accuracy when compared to the presently available serological indices.
