NASH Research Study

The hidden epidemic you need to know about.

NASH, short for Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis, is an advanced nonalcoholic fatty liver disease characterized by a buildup of fat on the liver that can cause permanent damage hindering its ability to filter the blood. It’s estimated that 16 million Americans have been diagnosed with NASH, with many more likely undiagnosed. Currently, it’s the second leading cause of liver transplants in the US. A noninvasive liver FibroScan® (similar to an ultrasound) can be done to determine a probable diagnosis, but should be confirmed by a biopsy. Risk factors include: type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, and obesity with an accumulation of fat around the midsection.

Right now, there are no medications currently approved for treating NASH. Accellacare is enrolling studies that may lead to the first approved treatment. Eligible participants will receive study-related care and study medication at no cost.
