New European project aims to improve tools and advice to prevent chronic liver illnesses

GRIPonMASH, a newly founded consortium consisting of 27 European institutions and companies, has bundled resources to bring about a transformational change in the detection and treatment of Metabolic Dysfunction-Associated Steatotic Liver Disease (MASLD).

Supported by the Innovative Health Initiative Joint Undertaking (IHI JU), the consortium will focus on developing the GRIPonMASH Diagnostic Platform which will allow early detection of patients with MASH, better patient stratification and personalized lifestyle advice.

Thirty percent of the world population suffers from Steatotic Liver Disease of which MASLD is one of the clinical presentations. Of these patients, about one in five will develop MASH, an advanced stage of MASLD in which liver inflammation occurs and the liver becomes severely damaged.

Moreover, five percent will develop fibrotic MASH (liver scarring). Whilst MASLD is reversible, MASH and especially fibrotic MASH lead to irreversible complications and could even lead to liver decompensation or liver cancer.

It is expected that by 2030, MASH will be the leading cause of liver transplants worldwide. Early detection of the disease is vital to ensure that the burden of care is lowered, and that patients can recover from MASH before it becomes chronic or even fatal.

We are proud to be one of the partners involved in this project. Please refer to the complete press release for more details about GRIPonMASH diagnostic platform.
