Naim Alkhouri, MD, FAASLD, to Present Findings from Non-alcohol Related Fatty Liver Disease Feasibility Study
Better Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: BTTX), a prescription digital therapeutics (PDT) company developing a clinically validated, software-based, novel form of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to address the root causes of cardiometabolic diseases, today announced the details of its poster presentation at the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) Congress 2023, being held from June 21-24 in Vienna, Austria. EASL is a leading professional society and their clinical practice guidelines inform the standard of care for Non-alcohol Related Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) around the world.
Naim Alkhouri, MD, FAASLD, Director of the Fatty Liver Program at Arizona Liver Health and Principal Investigator of the study, will present the results from the LivVita Study. The study was designed in partnership with Better Therapeutics to explore the safety, efficacy, and usability of a novel PDT platform, in individuals with NAFLD or NASH. Currently, there is no FDA approved treatment for NAFLD and NASH, which affect approximately one in four Americans. Behavioral change is foundational to addressing the root causes of the diseases and topline results demonstrate a prescription CBT treatment option could be of significant benefit.
Following the successful completion of the LivVita Liver Study, Better Therapeutics commenced work on an application to the FDA for Breakthrough Device Designation. Topline results from the LivVita Study from Better Therapeutics’ public announcement can be viewed here.
Details of the presentation are as follows:
Presentation Title: A novel prescription digital therapeutic for the treatment of non-alcohol related fatty liver disease: feasibility study
Session Date: June 23
Poster Board Number: 818
The full text of the abstract is published in the EASL Congress digital Abstract Book on pg. S822.
