Why This Report is Essential

Expect a revolution in the treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) as a number of new therapies compete to become the first approved treatment for a disease that has high unmet clinical need. Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis: KOL Insight reveals the critical views of US and European KOLs whose insights hold key lessons for pharma. Gain insights on products in the pipeline and how they could revolutionise the treatment algorithm.

Among the pipeline products analysed in this report is Intercepts/Dainippon Sumitomo Pharms FXR agonist, obeticholic acid, Genfits PPAR alpha/delta agonist, GFT505 and Gileads Simutuzumab. Others vying for market voice include Tobira Therapeuticss dual CCR2/CCR5 antagonist, cenicriviroc (TBR-652) and in the paediatric sector, Raptor Pharmaceuticals delayed-release cysteamine bitartrate.
