Along with NASH-TAG, Paris NASH is one of two famously small, science-based and publicly available events every year for the liver community.
Given the depth of topics and ideas explored in Paris, the event in its entirety would be nearly impossible to cover in a single conclusive episode. That said, the Surfers (Jörn Schattenberg, Louise Campbell and Roger Green) are joined by two presenting KOLs, Scott Friedman and Laurent Castera, for a neatly packaged conversation to capture some of the key dynamics of the meeting. Particularly, the group hone in on developments in the landscape around NITs.
This wrap-up conversation starts with Roger asking the panelists what other important/intriguing questions we have not yet covered which arose in the meeting. Scott discusses interesting talks on genetics. Laurent concurs and adds that he was struck by a talk about pediatric NASH, which is more likely to be endogenous since these young patients do not consume alcohol, but also confounded by how pediatricians are trained (or rather, not trained) to conduct biopsies and otherwise assess patients. Jörn discusses a statistical method for comparing disparate options known as DOOR – Desirability of Outcome Rankings. Lastly, Louise and Roger raise a couple of additional questions. Listen on to hear what they are.
This episode and its conversations cover a range of fascinating insights stemming from yet another impactful Paris NASH meeting.
