Liver disease is one of the pillars within the Gastroenterology Therapeutic Area, that includes both rare liver diseases (e.g: AATD-LD, Alagille Syndrome) and chronic liver diseases (e.g. NAFLD/NASH). There is currently no approved therapy for NASH, however several clinical trials are in progress for molecules with different mode of actions. There are several registries (national/international) with objectives to better understand the natural history, use of non-invasive assessments, biomarkers to better diagnose/monitor patients, including identifying and validating potential markers to measure treatment response. Additionally, several other data sources/data platforms also capture key outcomes for NAFLD/NASH which can be leveraged to support real world evidence strategy.
