What is Involved?

This study is being done in 3 periods: Screening, First Treatment and Long-Term Treatment .

If you join the study, you will start in the Screening Period and:
- Have a screening visit for a physical exam, medical history, vital signs and blood tests
- Have a screening liver biopsy if you've not had one within 6 months

If you are eligible to continue, you will enter the First Treatment Period (72 weeks long) and:
- Be randomized (like the flip of a coin) to one of two treatment Groups:
Group 1 will get Elafibranor (a study drug) -- you will have 2 out of 3 chance of being in this group
Group 2 will get a placebo (a sugar pill) -- you will have a 1 out of 3 chance of being in this group
(Neither you nor your doctor will know which group you are in)
- Have exams and lab work and complete questionnaires
- Have a liver biopsy at 72 weeks
After 72 weeks you will enter the Long-Term Treatment Period and remain in the same treatment group
