WATERTOWN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 8, 2022-- Enanta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ENTA), a clinical-stage biotechnology company dedicated to creating small molecule drugs for viral infections and liver diseases, today announced that data from Enanta's internal development program portfolio for hepatitis B virus (HBV) and its out-licensing program portfolio for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) have been accepted for poster presentations at the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) International Liver Congress 2022 being held June 22 - 26, 2022 in London, United Kingdom.
Clinical data presented from the company's internal development portfolio will include poster presentations highlighting findings from both viremic and nuc-suppressed HBV patients from Phase 1b studies of EDP-514, Enanta's HBV core inhibitor.
As part of its out-licensing program portfolio, Enanta will present a late-breaker poster of preclinical data showing hepatoprotection provided by a novel inhibitor of the HSD17B13 enzyme. The company will also present clinical results from its Phase 1 study of EDP-297, a novel, highly potent Farnesoid X receptor agonist designed for the treatment of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis.
