S4-31.3 - Jörn Schattenberg on the Therapeutic Landscape and Fibrosis Resolution
Roger Green is joined by co-host Jörn Schattenberg to discuss a complex and developing NASH therapeutic landscape and takeaways from an exciting month of meetings. This conversation also features comments around the subject of new NAFLD/NASH nomenclature.

Throughout the month of July, Surfing NASH embarks on a series of episodes dedicated to takeaways emerging from a busy last few weeks at both the 2023 EASL Congress in Vienna and the American Diabetes Association’s 83rd Scientific Sessions meeting in San Diego.

This first installment comprises two distinct 1:1 interviews with Tsunami co-host Roger Green, one with key opinion leader Mazen Noureddin and the other with co-host Jörn Schattenberg.

This first conversation with Jörn starts with discussion around the idea that even dramatic improvements in obesity medications will not resolve all issues related to fibrosis in MASLD patients. After speculation around the therapeutic landscape for NASH, conversation turns toward the new nomenclature consensus and what this will mean for the liver community and beyond.

Both conversations with Mazen and Jörn explore different perspectives around the complexities associated with drug development and the wider field’s understanding of Steatotic Liver Disease (SLD). Stay tuned for more in the subsequent conversations to be released. If you have any questions or comments around these meetings, the discussed therapeutics or the new nomenclature, we kindly ask that you submit reviews wherever you download the discourse. Alternatively, you can write to us directly at questions@SurfingNASH.com.
