-



– Seven abstracts highlighting ALGS and PFIC data, including three oral presentations

– Long-term extension data from Phase 3 MARCH-ON PFIC study presented at plenary session and selected among the highest scoring abstracts

FOSTER CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mirum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: MIRM) today announced data presented during the 56th European Society for Paediatric, Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) Annual Meeting which took place this week in Milan, Italy. Data from LIVMARLI ® (maralixibat) oral solution clinical studies and real-world settings in Alagille syndrome (ALGS) and Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis (PFIC) were presented in oral and poster presentations during the meeting.

We continue to build upon the strong body of evidence demonstrating LIVMARLI’s potential to provide long-term benefit to PFIC patients across key quality of life and liver disease parameters, as well as improvements in varied genetic types of PFIC, said Pam Vig, PhD, chief scientific officer and head of research at Mirum. Further, we are pleased to demonstrate data that shows children treated with LIVMARLI are reducing or discontinuing some antipruritic medications and nutritional supplements.

Abstract 587: Long-term Maintenance of Response and Improved Liver Health with Maralixibat in Patients with Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis: 2-year Data From the MARCH-ON Study
Plenary Session: Hepatology Highest Scoring Abstracts
Presented by Professor Richard J. Thompson, MD, King’s College London, United Kingdom
Patients with PFIC showed significant and sustained improvements in pruritus severity, serum bile acid (sBA) levels, total bilirubin and growth following up to two years of LIVMARLI treatment. Similar improvements in pruritus and sBA were seen in patients originally randomized to placebo who received LIVMARLI in the open-label study.

Abstract 594: Maralixibat Leads to Significant Reductions in Bilirubin for Patients with Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis: Data from the MARCH Trial
Presented by Lorenzo D’Antiga, MD, Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital, Bergamo, Italy
Patients treated with LIVMARLI experienced significant decreases in both total and direct bilirubin compared to placebo. 40% of the patients with abnormal bilirubin at baseline treated with LIVMARLI achieved normalization versus none in the placebo group. Further, these reductions in bilirubin were consistent with reductions in sBAs.

Abstract 600: Maralixibat Impact on Concomitant Medication Use for the Treatment of Cholestatic Pruritus in Alagille Syndrome: Real-World Experience
Presented by Jolan Terner-Rosenthal, PhD, Mirum Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:), Inc., Foster City, California, USA
Real-world evidence from 116 patients treated with LIVMARLI for at least one year showed that more than one-third of patients were able to discontinue ‰¥1 concomitant antipruritic medication, and one in five patients discontinued ‰¥2 medications. Reductions in concomitant medication usage were seen across all medication types and suggest that LIVMARLI may reduce the polypharmacy burden within the first year of treatment.

Liver injury. Changes in certain liver tests are common in patients with Alagille syndrome and PFIC but can worsen during treatment. These changes may be a sign of liver injury. In PFIC, this can be serious or may lead to liver transplant or death. Your healthcare provider should do blood tests and physical exams before starting and during treatment to check your liver function. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you get any signs or symptoms of liver problems, including nausea or vomiting, skin or the white part of the eye turns yellow, dark or brown urine, pain on the right side of the stomach (abdomen), bloating in your stomach area, loss of appetite or bleeding or bruising more easily than normal.

Stomach and intestinal (gastrointestinal) problems. LIVMARLI can cause stomach and intestinal problems, including diarrhea and stomach pain. Your healthcare provider may advise you to monitor for new or worsening stomach problems including stomach pain, diarrhea, blood in your stool or vomiting. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you have any of these symptoms more often or more severely than normal for you.

A condition called Fat Soluble Vitamin (FSV) Deficiency caused by low levels of certain vitamins (vitamin A, D, E, and K) stored in body fat is common in patients with Alagille syndrome and PFIC but may worsen during treatment. Your healthcare provider should do blood tests before starting and during treatment and may monitor for bone fractures and bleeding which have been reported as common side effects.
