Some drugs are prescribed off-label such as Metformin which is used in type-2 diabetes and NASH. However, NASH therapeutics exhibit a lucrative pipeline with more than 20 drug candidates undergoing Phase II clinical trials. The most promising drug anticipated to enter the NASH market in the near future is Elafibranor (Genfit) and Obeticholic Acid (Intercept) which are undergoing phase III trials. Many pharma giants Allergan, Gilead Sciences, Novo Nordisk and Bristol-Myers Squibb are developing drugs for NASH which further boost the NASH market during the future period.
