NASH Disease Market Examined in New Topical MP Advisors Report Now Available at MarketPublishers.com10 Dec 2015 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and its progressive form – non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) are the most rapidly growing liver diseases in the USA and Europe. NASH is estimated to affect 2 to 5% of the population of the USA. Europe and Japan also have a similar or higher incidence rate for NASH disease. Owing to the varying metabolism and physical traits in different geographies, the development of drug products for NASH is currently facing difficulty. In Japan, for instance, the prevalence of NASH is on the rise although the country’s population is not commonly overweight. Countries such as China and India with a bigger population pool and lifestyles changes face a far greater risk of the disease alongside other lifestyle disorders like diabetes as well as complexities associated with cardiovascular diseases.
There has been growing interest in firms developing drugs for the treatment of NASH. In January 2015, Gilead Sciences acquired Phenex Pharma’s Farnesoid X Receptor (FXR) programme consisting of small molecule FXR agonists to treat liver diseases encompassing NASH and others. Merck-NGM Biopharma and Boehringer Ingelheim - Pharmaxis also initiated an exclusive agreement for the pipeline products which are being developed for NASH with a prospective deal value of close to USD 450-600 million
