The prevalence data would suggest that in the US population about 30% of our population has fatty liver or NAFLD and of those 25% may have NASH and of those patients with NASH 25% percent may have fibrosis and progress to cirrhosis. It’s almost a pyramid effect, there may be 80 million Americans walking around with NAFLD, but to climb up to the top of the pyramid and develop cirrhosis would be about 5% of that total population, but that’s still significant because that would mean that the prevalence of cirrhosis [due to NASH] will exceed that of hepatitis C-related cirrhosis ten-fold
