Expert Presentation Overview

Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a common, often clinically silent liver disease characterized by the presence of a fatty, inflamed, and damaged liver. It resembles alcoholic liver disease but occurs in people who drink little or no alcohol, and is a highly progressed form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Patients with NASH display liver inflammation with hepatocyte injury in the form of ballooning, with or without fibrosis, in addition to the presence of a fatty liver. NASH is becoming increasingly common with the alarming epidemic of obesity and carries the risk for more aggressive liver diseases such as cirrhosis, liver failure, and in some rare instances, hepatocellular cancer. As the most common form of chronic liver disease in developed countries, the prevalence of NAFLD in the US ranges from 20% to 46%, and the prevalence of NASH spans from 2% to 12%.

Therapeutic options for NASH are currently very limited, with Vitamin E being the standard of care for patients. This leaves significant unmet need for the disease and, coupled with high disease prevalence in developed countries, results in enticing opportunities for drug developers. As such, there is a very active pipeline for NASH, and many new products are expected to launch over the next 10 years. However, there is still uncertainty over how the NASH treatment landscape will develop as these new products launch. This report is an update to GlobalData’s 2017 publication, ‘OpportunityAnalyzer: NASH – Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2026’, and attempts to address this uncertainty and provide insight on what to expect from the NASH market to 2026, supported by GlobalData’s extensive primary and secondary research.

In this expert presentation Dr. Thomas Moore, a Healthcare Analyst at GlobalData, will present the changing NASH treatment landscape between 2016 and 2026, drawing on insights from GlobalData’s report, ‘Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis: Dynamic Market Forecast to 2026’. The current treatment options and drug pipeline for NASH will be covered, including a discussion on GlobalData’s sales forecast for the NASH market. The webinar will include insights from KOLs covering the challenges expected to be faced by companies looking to enter the NASH market, as well as the opportunities which are likely to remain by the end of the forecast period. Dr. Christopher Pace, a Therapy Area Director at GlobalData, will moderate a Q&A session following the presentation.
