Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Hepatic histological improvement in NAS defined as a decrease of at least 2 points with no worsening of fibrosis stage at 12 months. [ Time Frame: 12 months (360 days) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects with resolution of NASH with no worsening of fibrosis at 12 months. [ Time Frame: 12 months (360 days) ]
  • Proportion of subjects with improvement of fibrosis (CRN staging score) by at least 1 stage with no worsening of NASH at 12 months. [ Time Frame: 12 months (360 days) ]
  • Mean change from baseline in NAFLD activity score (NAS) and each one of its components (steatosis, inflammation and ballooning) at 12 months. [ Time Frame: 12 months (360 days) ]
  • Mean change from baseline in fibrosis score at 12 months. [ Time Frame: 12 months (360 days) ]

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, double-blinded study of three doses of MSDC-0602K or placebo given orally once daily to subjects with biopsy proven NASH with fibrosis and no cirrhosis. Visits to the clinic will be at baseline, 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months, with one 2- week follow-up visit.

Safety will be assessed by monitoring of vital signs, 12 lead electrocardiogram (ECG), physical examinations, safety labs, and adverse events (AEs).
