Not only is nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and its precursor, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), virtually unheard of among the most high-risk patient population, it’s difficult to diagnose and it disproportionately affects those who are already marginalized.  This poses a dramatic problem for clinical trial enrollment, since the next five years will see more than 60 sponsors attempt to randomize nearly 30,000 NASH patients into clinical trials.

The prevalence of NASH is estimated to be up to 25 percent of the population in the developed world, yet fewer than two percent of people have even heard of it. This will become a monumental challenge for clinical trial enrollment. Moreover, awareness barely increases (up to six percent) among those most at risk for developing the chronic, potentially fatal condition. Finding patients to randomize in to a clinical trial will require a multi-pronged approach: deep understanding of the patient journey, a full commitment to patient and community engagement, targeted, empathetic recruitment campaign messaging and smart, data-driven site support.

In this webinar, participants will learn:

  • Results of a proprietary insights study conducted with this at-risk patient population
  • How low awareness among patients and healthcare professionals impacts clinical trial enrollment
  • Patient journey insights to inform education and engagement strategies
  • Campaign messaging strategies designed to maximize referrals
  • Analytic-driven, site-level recruitment solutions

Wayne Eskridge, CEO, Fatty Liver Foundation

Wayne Eskridge, an electrical engineer from the University of Idaho, worked in software and electronics through a 50-year professional career. From his early role as a computer programmer, he moved on to serve in many technical and managerial roles at multiple levels in businesses of all sizes. He held executive positions in both public and private corporations with worldwide responsibilities, and from start-ups to Fortune 500 firms.

Mr. Eskridge was first diagnosed with liver disease in 2010 and, through his own experiences, he became aware of an acute need for an educational resource from a patient perspective. At the core of his motivation is the fact that an estimated 100 million Americans already have fatty liver disease and are unaware of it. As there is currently no medical treatment for NAFLD/NASH, through his work as a patient advocate and founder of the Fatty Liver Foundation, he focuses on prevention and education to support others in avoiding his experiences.
