Breakthroughs with NASH Management: What Do Gastroenterologists and Hepatologists Need to Know?
Stephen A. Harrison, MD; Zobair M. Younossi, MD, MPH, FACP, FACG, AGAF

Program Overview
Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), an advanced form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), is a severe liver disorder with a rapidly progressive course that can lead to liver fibrosis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. In order to prevent irreversible liver damage, patients with NASH should receive immediate treatment. However, distinguishing NASH from other liver disorders and identifying high-risk patients remain challenging, and there are limited treatment options once a patient is diagnosed. While there are no approved medical therapies for NASH, multiple investigational agents have shown promise in late-stage trials and are expected to be available for NASH treatment soon.

This activity, Breakthroughs with NASH Management: What Do Gastroenterologists and Hepatologists Need to Know? will provide clinicians with the most current guidance on NASH diagnostic strategies. Clinician learners will also receive information on the efficacy, safety, and potential use of novel agents in late-stage clinical investigation for the treatment of patients with NASH.
