Intercept has also established the leading clinical development program in advanced fibrosis due to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a disease that impacts the lives of millions of people in the U.S. alone and for which there are currently no available treatments. In December 2022, Intercept re-submitted its NDA for fibrosis due to NASH to the FDA based on positive data from its phase 3 REGENERATE trial.
