This week on Surfing the NASH Tsunami, we are offering a co-host ‘roundtable’ catch-up between Jörn Schattenberg, Louise Campbell and Roger Green. This is a fun, casual conversation that looks into first quarter highlights and a preview of what’s to come in quarter two of 2023.
Roger opens this final conversation by noting his growing enthusiasm for International NASH Day 2023. This leads Jörn to share interesting anecdotes to describe how different cultures face different health threats. For example, in Germany he questions whether he should be revisiting his position on recommendations around alcohol consumption. As the session winds down, Roger alludes to exciting plans for a Surfing NASH 4th anniversary special. The recording will take place on April 17th and we kindly invite those who are interested to participate as a live audience. For a final question, the Surfers visit what each thinks will be big ticket items for the second half of 2023 in the liver space. Louise looks to more education to bolster early detection. Jörn extends this thought to include the need for a clinical trial showing superiority of screening versus no screening in the general population. Lastly, Roger speaks to his contrasting interests around both the power of AI-assisted assessment of biopsy and the ability of consortia to demonstrate the effectiveness of NITs.
