Leveraging Clinical Pharmacology to Optimize Drug Development for Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) and Cholestatic Liver Diseases

There is significant unmet medical need in the prevention and treatment of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), primary biliary cholangitis, and primary sclerosing cholangitis. Despite its increasing prevalence and potential to cause severe liver-related morbidity (including liver cancer) and mortality, there are currently no drugs approved for the treatment of NASH. Recognizing that the complex etiologies, natural histories, and pathophysiologies of NASH and other cholestatic liver diseases are major impediments to ongoing drug development, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released two draft guidances to assist industry in the clinical development of drugs for the treatment of NASH with liver fibrosis and with compensated cirrhosis.

ISSX Disposition of Biologics Workshop
Dec 12-13, 2019

Boston, Massachusetts

ISSX Disposition of Biologics Workshop

Biologics have become an important and rapidly growing component of modern medicine, which has fundamentally altered treatment paradigm for many diseases. This class of drug molecules involve myriad of biotechnology products ranging from therapeutic proteins (such as monoclonal antibodies, fusion proteins, antibody-drug conjugates) to peptides, vaccines, oligonucleotides, and gene and cell therapies.

This workshop is chaired by Dhaval Shah of University at Buffalo, SUNY and Honghui Zhou of Johnson & Johnson.
