CymaBay Therapeutics is developing Seladelpar for the treatment of Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC). PBC currently affects around 130K patients in the USA and current available treatments do not address patient needs sufficiently. Seladelpar is an oral, selective PPARδ agonist that has been shown to regulate critical metabolic and liver disease pathways. CymaBay is currently enrolling for a registrational Phase 3 program in PBC with topline data expected in 2023. Data from prior trials show that Seladelpar significantly improves ALP as well as ALT/AST. On top of that, patients taking Seladelpar have reductions in pruritus and improvements in other important biomarkers – something that current available treatments to not provide.
In this episode, I interview Sujal Shah, CEO or CymaBay Therapeutics, to talk about the company.
