The enhanced liver fibrosis (ELF) test: a clinical grade, validated serum test, biomarker of overall fibrosis in systemic sclerosis.

 

The ELF test significantly correlates with several measures of fibrosis in SSc and with overall disease activity, severity and health assessment questionnaire-disability index. PubMed, Ann Rheum Dis, 2014 Feb 1;73(2):420-7. (Also see: Liver Involvement)
