Belapectin is a galectin-3 inhibitor. The compound used the STAMTM mouse model for non-clinical studies, and data showing the improvement of NASH and fibrosis in the STAMTM mouse model was published in PLoS ONE （https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0083481).
In the future, we believe that further clinical trial results for Belapectin will provide evidence for the STAMTM mouse model as a clinically predictive NASH model.
