A Remarkable

Turning Point

Impacting the livers of those with rare disease is more than a mission-it’s our calling. At Mirum, our work is in service of closing treatment gaps to open a world of possibilities for patients and their families.

Patients and families play a crucial role in our clinical trial designs and approaches. We work with them to help identify what matters most as our investigational treatments are evaluated. This includes the development of surveys, pruritus (itch) severity scales, and e-diaries that help create a better understanding of the burdens of rare diseases.

    LIVMARLI (maralixibat) and discuss access:
    FOR U.S. PATIENTS: MIRUM ACCESS PLUS PROGRAM
    FOR PATIENTS OUTSIDE OF THE U.S.: MIRUM EXPANDED ACCESS PROGRAM

    Mode of action

    LIVMARLI (maralixibat) works by blocking an important bile acid transport protein on the surface of the small intestine. This results in more bile acids being excreted in the feces, which then leads to lower levels of bile acids systemically.1

    What we’ve seen in clinical studies in ALGS

    In the Phase 2 ICONIC study, children with ALGS taking LIVMARLI (maralixibat) saw significant reductions in itch (pruritus).1

    What we’ve seen in clinical studies in PFIC

    INDIGO was a Phase 2 open label study with more than 5 years of data. Patients with PFIC2 who achieved serum bile acid (sBA) response were shown to have promising results across an array of parameters.5

    In the MARCH Phase 3 study, LIVMARLI met its primary endpoint of improvement in pruritus severity (p=0.0098) with highly statistically significant effects observed across all PFIC subtypes studied. The study also showed significant improvements in other endpoints with total bilirubin and growth versus placebo at six months.

    LIVMARLI (maralixibat) safety profile

    What are the possible side effects of LIVMARLI?
    Limitation of Use: LIVMARLI is not for use in PFIC type 2 patients who have a severe defect in the bile salt export pump (BSEP) protein.

    • Liver injury. Changes in certain liver tests are common in patients with Alagille syndrome and PFIC but may worsen during treatment. These changes may be a sign of liver injury. In PFIC, this can be serious or may lead to transplant or death. Your health care provider should do blood tests and physical exams before starting and during treatment to check your liver function. Tell your health care provider right away if you get any signs or symptoms of liver problems, including:
      • nausea or vomiting

      • your skin or the white part of your eye turns yellow

      • dark or brown urine

      • pain on the right side of your stomach (abdomen)

      • fullness, bloating, or fluid in your stomach area (ascites)

      • loss of appetite

      • bleeding or bruising more easily than normal, including vomiting blood

    • Stomach and intestinal (gastrointestinal) problems. LIVMARLI can cause stomach and intestinal problems, including diarrhea and stomach pain. Diarrhea can also cause the loss of too much body fluid (severe dehydration). Your health care provider may advise you to monitor for new or worsening stomach problems, including stomach pain, diarrhea, blood in your stool, or vomiting Tell your health care provider right away if you have any new or worsening signs or symptoms of stomach and intestinal problems, including:
      • diarrhea

      • more frequent bowel movements than usual

      • stools that are black, tarry, or sticky, or have blood or mucous

      • severe stomach-area pain or tenderness

      • vomiting

      • urinating less often than usual

      • dizziness

      • headache

    • 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 health care provider should do blood tests before starting and during treatment, and may monitor for bone fractures and bleeding, which are common side effects.


    Tell your health care provider about all medicines that you take, as LIVMARLI may interact with other medicines. If you take a medicine that lowers cholesterol by binding bile acids, such as cholestyramine, colesevelam, or colestipol, take it at least 4 hours before or 4 hours after you take LIVMARLI.

    Your health care provider may change your dose, or temporarily or permanently stop treatment if you have certain side effects.

    These are not all of the possible side effects of LIVMARLI. For more information, ask your health care provider or pharmacist. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

    In patients with Alagille syndrome, LIVMARLI is taken by mouth, 1 time each day, 30 minutes before a meal in the morning. In patients with PFIC, LIVMARLI is taken by mouth, 2 times each day, 30 minutes before a meal. Be sure to use the provided oral dosing dispenser to accurately measure the dose of medicine.

Volixibat

About volixibat

Volixibat is a minimally absorbed, orally administered investigational therapy designed to selectively inhibit ileal bile acid transporter (IBAT), a protein that is primarily responsible for recycling bile acids from the intestine to the liver. We believe that volixibat may offer a novel approach in the treatment of rare liver diseases impacting both adults and children by blocking the recycling of bile acids, thereby reducing bile acids systemically. Volixibat is currently being studied in primary sclerosing cholangitis and primary biliary cholangitis.6

Mode of action

Volixibat works by blocking an important bile acid transport protein on the surface of the small intestine. This results in more bile acids being excreted in the feces. This leads to lower levels of bile acids systemically, thereby potentially reducing bile acid–mediated liver damage and its related effects and complications. Additionally, volixibat is designed to be minimally absorbed into the bloodstream.6

What we’ve seen in clinical trials

Data from Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trials of volixibat in more than 400 people demonstrated Increases in fecal bile acid excretion (a marker of IBAT inhibition), resulting in dose-related increase in 7αC4.6

Interim results from the VANTAGE study evaluating volixibat in patients with PBC demonstrated statistically significant (-3.82, p<0.0001) improvement in pruritus for volixibat and a placebo-adjusted difference of -2.32 points, p=0.0026, as measured by the Adult ItchRO scale. 75% of patients on volixibat achieved a greater than 50% reduction in serum bile acids. In addition, there was a significant improvement in fatigue at week 16 with volixibat compared to placebo. No new safety signals were observed, and adverse events were similar between the 20 mg and 80 mg treatment groups. The most common adverse event was diarrhea (77%) with all cases mild to moderate, and one case resulting in discontinuation. There were no clinically meaningful changes in liver biomarkers.


The blinded interim analysis for the VISTAS study in PSC was announced on June 17, 2024. The study is continuing to enroll.


Volixibat clinical trials

We are now evaluating volixibat’s potential in several cholestatic diseases including the Phase 2b VISTAS study for patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and the Phase 2b VANTAGE study for adults with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC).

Chenodal® (chenodiol)

About Chenodal (chenodiol)

Chenodiol is another name for chenodeoxycholic acid (CDCA). CDCA is a naturally occurring bile acid that was approved in 1983 under the brand name Chenix for the treatment of people with radiolucent stones in the gallbladder. More recently, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted Chenodal (also CDCA) orphan drug designation for cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX). CTX is a rare progressive disorder that can affect the brain, spinal cord, tendons, eyes and arteries. Chenodal is not indicated for the treatment of CTX but has received a medical necessity determination in the US by the FDA. The Phase 3 RESTORE clinical trial is currently underway to examine the safety and efficacy of CDCA for the treatment of CTX.

Our Approach

Our investigational approach is to evaluate the use of CDCA as a direct replacement therapy option for the restoration of physiologic bile acids and the regulation of cholestanol and bile alcohols compared to placebo.

RESTORE Study

The RESTORE Study is a Phase 3 double-blind, placebo-controlled 24-week clinical trial, assessing the safety and efficacy of Chenodal in patients with CTX. The primary efficacy endpoint of the RESTORE Study is the change from baseline in urine bile alcohols at the end of each double-blind treatment period. The study protocol allows for rescue measures to protect patient safety. The RESTORE study may support greater identification and earlier treatment efforts in this ultra-rare progressive neurological disorder.
