Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH), a type of fatty liver disease, affects between 3 to 12 percent of Americans.1 By 2020, it’s estimated NASH will overtake Hepatitis C as the leading cause of liver transplants in America. The disease is caused by the buildup of fat in the liver, resulting in inflammation and tissue damage.
The NASH Alliance is a coalition of clinical experts, patients and life sciences innovators focused on educating policymakers and the public on non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and advocating responsible policies to improve treatment and prevention.
