The agreement applies to Sprint Bioscience’s early development program for NASH and metabolic diseases and gives the company approximately USD 2.5 million for the first 12 months. Sprint Bioscience is entitled to approximately $ 230 million in potential preclinical, clinical and net sales-based interim payments.

NASH (Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis) is a serious liver disease where there is currently no treatment. Sprint Bioscience is working on a new mechanism of action and a new target protein involved in fat storage in the liver and other tissues, inflammatory response and fibrosis in NASH. Something that provides the opportunity to develop treatments that can slow the development of both early and late stages of NAFLD (Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease) / NASH.
