Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a progressive form of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) for which therapy is suboptimal. The farnesoid-X-receptor (FXR) and the G protein bile acid receptor (GPBAR)1 are two bile acid-activated receptors that exert regulatory effects on lipid, glucose, energy, and immune homeostasis. GPBAR1 and FXR ligands have shown efficacy in reversing steatohepatitis and fibrosis in preclinical models of NASH.

Abstract

Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is a progressive form of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) for which therapy is suboptimal. The farnesoid-X-receptor (FXR) and the G protein bile acid receptor (GPBAR)1 are two bile acid-activated receptors that exert regulatory effects on lipid, glucose, energy, and immune homeostasis. GPBAR1 and FXR ligands have shown efficacy in reversing steatohepatitis and fibrosis in preclinical models of NASH.
