Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 2 multi-center, randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of TVB-2640 in subjects with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a type of fatty liver disease. Subjects will be randomly assigned to 1 of 2 treatment groups (TVB- 2640 at one of two doses or placebo). Following randomization, subjects will begin the 12-week treatment period and will receive once daily TVB-2640 or placebo.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: TVB-2640
Subjects randomly assigned to receive the study drug will take TVB-2640 tablet orally every day for 12 week treatment period. The dose is to be taken at the same time of the day, with each dose separated by 24 hours (±4 hours). Two dose cohorts of TVB-2640 are planned.
Drug: TVB-2640
Oral dose, tablet, daily dosing

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Subjects randomly assigned to placebo will receive placebo tablets orally once a day under the same conditions and frequency as described for TVB-2640.
Other: Placebo
Oral dose, tablet, daily dosing




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The effect of TVB-2640 versus placebo on the change in hepatic fat fraction from baseline in subjects with NASH by proton-density fat fraction by magnetic resonance imaging. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    Proton-density Fat Fraction by Magnetic Resonance Imaging

  2. The safety of TVB-2640 versus placebo in subjects with NASH, including changes in liver enzymes by monitoring adverse events. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The effect of TVB-2640 versus placebo on the change in triglycerides from baseline in subjects with NASH. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  2. The effect of TVB-2640 versus placebo on the change in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) from baseline in subjects with NASH. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  3. The effect of TVB-2640 versus placebo on the change in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) from baseline in subjects with NASH. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  4. The effect of TVB-2640 versus placebo on the change in total cholesterol from baseline in subjects with NASH. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  5. The effect of TVB-2640 versus placebo on the change in NASH and cytokeratin-18 (CK-18) from baseline in subjects with NASH. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  6. The effect of TVB-2640 versus placebo on the change in NASH and fibrosis-4 (FIB-4) from baseline in subjects with NASH. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  7. The effect of TVB-2640 versus placebo on the change in NASH and enhanced liver fibrosis score (ELF) from baseline in subjects with NASH. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    The Enhanced Liver Fibrosis (ELF) score is a marker set consisting of tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 1 (TIMP-1), amino-terminal propeptide of type III procollagen (PIIINP) and hyaluronic acid (HA) showing good correlations with fibrosis stages in chronic liver disease. There are three typical cut-off values: < 7.7 for exclusion of fibrosis, 9.8 for a high specificity identification of fibrosis and 11.3 to discriminate cirrhosis.

  8. The effect of TVB-2640 versus placebo on the change in levels of eicosanoids from baseline in subjects with NASH. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    Eicosanoids are lipid-derived signaling molecules including 5-LOX-derived leukotriene B4 (LTB4), COX-derived prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), and 15-LOX-derived 15-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (15-HETE) and lipoxin A4 (LXA4).

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Aged ≥ 18 years with a body mass index (BMI) ≤40 kg/m2.
  2. Prior liver biopsy within 24 months of randomization with fibrosis Stage 1 to 3 and a non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) activity score (NAS) of ≥ 4 with at least a score of 1 in each of the following NAS components:

    • Steatosis
    • Ballooning degeneration
    • Lobular inflammation

AND

  • Confirmation of ≥ 8% liver fat content on MRI-PDFF.

OR, if prior biopsy is not available:

  • Either overweight or obese or diabetic or ALT ≥ 30 U/L or fatty liver on ultrasound and at least one more feature of metabolic syndrome by Adult Treatment Panel III (ATP III) criteria.

AND

  • Magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) ≥ 2.5 kPa and MRI-PDFF ≥ 8% during screening.

Exclusion Criteria:

Subjects meeting any of the following criteria are not eligible for enrollment in the study.

  1. History of significant alcohol consumption for a period of more than 3 consecutive months within 1 year prior to screening.

    Note: Significant alcohol consumption is defined as average of > 20 g/day in female subjects and > 30 g/day in male subjects.

  2. Type 1 diabetes.
  3. Uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes defined as:

    • HbA1c ≥ 9.5% during screening. (Subjects with HbA1c ≥ 9.5% may be rescreened).
    • Basal insulin dose adjustment > 10% within 60 days prior to enrollment.
    • Requirement for glucagon-like peptide analogue or a complex oral anti-diabetic (OAD) regimen (3 or more OADs) within 6 months of screening.
    • History of severe hypoglycemia (symptomatic hypoglycemia requiring outside assistance to regain normal neurologic status) within the previous year.

    Note: Individual diabetes regimens will be reviewed by Investigator and may be adjusted based on American Diabetes Association guidelines.

  4. Presence of cirrhosis on liver biopsy (Stage 4 fibrosis) or imaging.
