On demand access to a sample of presentations from NASH 2023

NASH continues to be a huge unmet clinical need globally, and although no therapy has received regulatory approval, there continues to be research advancing our understanding of the disease’s mechanisms. Developments in non-invasive diagnostic biomarkers continue to offer the hope that they will replace liver biopsies and there have been improvements to in vivo liver models. All these are the focus of this year’s congress as well as new preclinical and clinical research. The most promising therapeutics in development and business case studies will also be featured at this meeting.

These presentations discuss the novel research undertaken by leading researchers and reveal the latest from several companies with ongoing clinical trials. There is no charge to be a digital attendee
