Albireo leaders reaffirm the Company’s commitment to advancing life-changing research and join the community in bringing greater awareness to patients and families affected by this rare and devastating disorder.
“Connecting with families who manage Alagille syndrome and hearing firsthand the burdens associated with the disease reaffirms our mission at Albireo, which is to provide hope and improve treatment options and outcomes for children and families with rare cholestatic liver diseases,” said Ron Cooper, President and Chief Executive Officer of Albireo. “Their feedback has been invaluable in helping design our Phase 3 study in Alagille syndrome, called ASSERT, which is currently enrolling eligible patients.”
