Core Tip Presently, there is no approved medical therapy for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). In this randomized placebo-controlled trial, the effect of sitagliptin on liver fibrosis in patients with NASH after 24 wk was evaluated. There was no significant improvement with the use of sitagliptin on liver fibrosis, total non-alcoholic fatty liver disease activity score or its individual components. Similarly, there were no significant improvements in liver enzymes, adipocytokines, lipid profile, thrombosis parameters, or adipose distribution. There was a strong correlation between hepatic fat % measured using the MRI IDEAL technique and hepatic steatosis on liver biopsy.
