NASH Day 2022, #StopNASHNow
Thursday, June 9, marked #NASHDay 2022, the 5th annual celebration of International NASH Day by the world’s largest liver patient advocacy organization, the Global Liver Institute. For the #NASHDay Wrap-up Panel, Global Liver Institute invited NASH Tsunami co-hosts Jörn Schattenberg, Louise Campbell and Roger Green to join NASH Programs Director Jeff McIntyre to discuss themes of the day and major issues in the Fatty Liver community.
This conversation includes the last fifteen minutes of the GLI NASH Day wrap-up panel. Jeff McIntyre asks two questions to the group. First, he asks each panelist to respond to the slogan #StopNASHNow and its implication that for patients, it might be enough simply to arrest the progression of fibrosis. Therefore we should devote efforts in research and regulatory energy to stopping the progression instead of focusing entirely on regression. For his last substantive question, he asks each of us to discuss something that puts a twinkle in our eyes as we consider the next 3-5 years of progress in the fight against Fatty Liver disease. Surf on for great questions that yield interesting and diverse answers.
