International NASH Day (IND)

Posted: June 9, 2022

June 9, 2022, is International NASH Day (IND). IND is an initiative started by the Global Liver Institute to raise awareness of the growing worldwide epidemic of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and its more advanced form, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).

There are currently no approved drugs to treat NAFLD or NASH, and following a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and regular exercise – like going for a run – is still the best way to prevent and treat these diseases.

DiaPharma supports the development of pharmacological therapies for NASH by offering noninvasive tests (NITs) for biomarkers like CK18 that provide early, biologically plausible indications of changes in disease activity in drug development research.
