Study Details

Testing the Drug HM15211 for People with Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis

(IRB#: IRB_00136282)

Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) is swelling of the liver due to the buildup of fat in the liver cells of people who drink little or no alcohol. If swelling of the liver lasts it can lead to scarring (fibrosis) and serious medical issues. The study will test a drug called HM15211 to treat people with this condition. The study wants to see if the drug will help people with the condition and is safe. People in the study will be randomly assigned to one of four groups. Three of the groups will be treated with a different dose of the drug and one group will receive a placebo. The placebo looks like the study drug but does not have the medication. Being in the study requires up to 21 visits at the study clinic for about 65 weeks. People will write in a journal and complete other medical tests to track their health.
