Conference Brochure

European NASH Workshop is organized by Expert Medical Events and will be held from Mar 08 - 09, 2019 at Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. The target audience for this medical event is Gastroenterologists.

Course Description ;
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is an emerging liver disease affecting 25 % of the population worldwide. In 10% of patients, NAFLD progresses into NASH, a fibrogenic phenotype that can potentially result in cirrhosis, liver failure and the formation of hepatocellular carcinoma. Although NAFLD is globally the most prevalent chronic liver disease and the second leading indication for liver transplant evaluation in the US, knowledge concerning the molecular mechanisms favoring the development and progression of the disease are not fully understood. Current understanding supports the hypothesis that environmental and genetic factors equally influence disease progression. Considering the far-reaching societal and economic burden caused by NAFLD, it is of utmost importance to identify and subsequently implement guidelines to stage, diagnose and treat the disease efficiently. In particular, there is an unmet need for approved drugs that allow the pharmacological treatment of (pre-)cirrhotic NASH. By using surrogate endpoints, the drug approval process for NASH is accelerated and approved agents are expected to enter the market in the near future.

Meeting Objectives :
This meeting aims to:
• Review current treatment options and prepare the field for upcoming drugs
• Review the mechanistic backgrounds of new drugs and their mode of action
• Raise awareness for NASH among secondary stakeholders such as endocrinologists, diabetologists and cardiologists
• Stimulate discussion to accelerate the implementation of policies

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
