Case report demonstrates durable response after treatment with maralixibat in ALGS
Clinical trials of the breakthrough drug, maralixibat, for children aged 3 months and older suffering from Alagille syndrome-related pruritus have extended up to a 4-year follow-up.
A recent report highlights a case in which a patient exhibited not just the anticipated reduction in pruritus but complete resolution of the itching after treatment with maralixibat. The patient’s response demonstrated longevity, persisting for over 7 years, and resulting in the discontinuation of all other antipruritic medications.
