A Study of RO5093151 in Patients With Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
Multi-center, Double-blind, Randomized, Placebo-controlled Study of Selective 11 Beta-HSD1 Inhibition With RO5093151 for 12 Weeks to Investigate Efficacy, Safety and Pharmacokinetics of RO5093151 in Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and Its Metabolic Consequences.
This multi-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study will evaluate the change in liver fat content, pharmacokinetics and safety of RO5093151 in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Patients will be randomized to receive either daily oral doses of RO5093151 or matching placebo. The anticipated time on study treatment is 12 weeks.
