Albireo is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and potential commercialization of novel bile acid modulators to treat orphan paediatric liver diseases and other liver or gastrointestinal diseases and disorders. We have deep expertise in bile acid biology and a pipeline of clinical and nonclinical programs.
Odevixibat is a potent and selective inhibitor of the ileal bile acid transporter (IBAT), sometimes also 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 are developing odevixibat initially to treat patients with PFIC, a rare genetic liver disease, and plan to consider additional development in other paediatric cholestatic liver diseases and disorders in the future. Their Phase 3 program in PFIC includes a single randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicentre clinical trial and an open-label long-term extension study. The double-blind trial, called PEDFIC1, is underway with data read out anticipated in the Middle of 2020. (June/July).
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted to the odevixibat PFIC program or elements of it fast track, rare paediatric disease and orphan drug designations. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has granted odevixibat orphan designation, as well as access to the PRIority MEdicines (PRIME) scheme for the treatment of PFIC. Its Paediatric 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 commercialise Odevixibat in the US, Europe & Canada and will partner in remaining regions.
