Experimental and translational pathophysiology
Dynamic liver function tests have become an essential prerequisite in the surgical planning process for successful visceral surgery. Our group has long-
The ancient dogma "one size fits all" does no longer hold true to therapeutic drug dosing in intensive care patients. As we discover high interindividual variations in drugs half-
Understanding complex pathophysiological processes is crucial for optimized patients' treatment. Therefore, applying state-

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 -

In patients with a critical low preoperative liver function, a volume-
