FDA Approves Rezdiffra, First NASH Treatment In The United States

March 15, 2024

On March 14, 2024, the US FDA granted accelerated approval for Madrigal Pharmaceuticals’ Rezdiffra (resmetirom) with diet and exercise for the treatment of Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH), also known as Metabolic Dysfunction-Associated Steatohepatitis (MASH). NASH, a form of fatty liver, affects around 5% of adults in the United States and can lead to debilitating liver failure over the long term. Rezdiffra selectively activates thyroid hormone receptor-β. When combined with diet and exercise, this significantly decreases liver fibrosis and can lead to NASH resolution. Rezdiffra has been the target medication of multiple clinical trials at ENCORE Research Group sites. Jacksonville Center for Clinical Research, Nature Coast Clinical Research – Inverness, and St. Johns Center for Clinical Research have all participated in trials involving Rezdiffra. Madrigal expects Rezdiffra to be available to limited pharmacies in April 2024.
