2019 International Liver Congress™

Date: April 11-14, 2019

Location: Vienna - Austria

GENFIT is a bronze sponsor and will participate in the 2019 EASL International Liver Congress. GENFIT's presentations (four abstracts) will highlight the clinical results of elafibranor, a dual alpha/delta PPAR agonist, including a late breaker presentation on the results of our Phase 2 in primary biliary cholangitis (PBC). Additional presentations detail GENFIT’s approach to evaluating elafibranor as the basis for combination therapies in NASH that will highlight new results on the complementary actions of both of GENFIT’s drug candidates, elafibranor and nitazoxanide, to reduce fibrosis in NASH. GENFIT will also provide key insights on its diagnostic test NIS4™ aiming at identifying NASH patients eligible for treatment.
