Few tests of liver function have proved to be of much value in the diagnosis and prognosis of diseases of this organ. Common to all is the failure to detect hepatic disease in its earlier stages. The multiplicity of the liver's functions, as well as its great regenerative capacity and functional reserve, provides ample explanation for this shortcoming. Although a better understanding of the condition of the liver may be derived from a combined study of several hepatic functions, any test which might elicit more trustworthy information concerning a single function deserves further investigation.
