Patient-Centric Approach

We are motivated in our daily work by the patients these treatments help, and we work to make clinical trial participation as convenient as possible for patients worldwide. We’ve crafted a superior patient journey, increasing access for potential participants, reducing the burden of participation, and enabling a truly patient-first experience throughout the entire development journey. Our protocols consider a patient’s daily life and their standard of care and are free from unnecessary burdens and nuances. Building patient-focused studies not only help patients who are enrolled but ultimately lead to faster approvals and widespread availability for all hepatology patients.
