Albireo Pharma Overview:

Albireo is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and potential commercialization of novel bile acid modulators to treat orphan pediatric liver diseases and other liver or gastrointestinal diseases and disorders. Albireo has deep expertise in bile acid biology and a pipeline of clinical and nonclinical programs.

The company’s first commercial launch will be Odevixibat, which is a potent and selective inhibitor of the ileal bile acid transporter (IBAT), sometimes referred to as the apical sodium dependent bile acid transporter (ASBT), that has minimal systemic exposure at therapeutic doses and acts locally in the gut.

Albireo is developing Odevixibat initially to treat patients with PFIC, a rare genetic liver disease, and plans to consider additional development in other pediatric cholestatic liver diseases and disorders in the future. Our Phase 3 program in PFIC includes a single randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled, multicenter clinical trial and an open-label long-term extension study. The double-blind trial, called PEDFIC1, is underway with data read out anticipated in mid- 2020.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted to the Odevixibat PFIC program or elements of its fast track, rare pediatric disease and orphan drug designations. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has granted Odevixibat orphan designation, as well as access to the Priority Medicine’s (PRIME) scheme for the treatment of PFIC. Its Pediatric Committee has agreed to Albireo’s Odevixibat Pediatric Investigation Plan for PFIC. Both FDA and EMA also have granted orphan drug designation to Odevixibat for the treatment of Alagille syndrome and primary biliary cholangitis. Albireo will commercialize Odevixibat in the US, Europe & Canada and is pursuing potential partners in remaining regions.
