a16 patients (7%) who were intolerant did not receive concomitant UDCA: 6 patients (8%) in the OCALIVA 10 mg arm, 5 patients (7%) in the OCALIVA 5→10 mg titration arm, and 5 patients (7%) in the placebo arm.1

Significant, Sustained Reductions in Alkaline Phosphatase1,a

  • Sustained ALP Reductions
  • Up-titration Efficacy
Sustained ALP Reductions

Mean Reductions >30% at 12 Months vs 5% for UDCA Alone1,3,4

Reductions in alkaline phosphatase efficacy were maintained over 1 year with OCALIVA
Reductions in alkaline phosphatase efficacy were maintained over 1 year with OCALIVA
Up-titration Efficacy

OCALIVA Delivered Further Reductions (~50 U/L)
When Patients Up-titrated to 10 mg2

When patients up-titrated from 5 mg to 10 mg, OCALIVA delivered further reductions (~50 U/L) in alkaline phosphatase
When patients up-titrated from 5 mg to 10 mg, OCALIVA delivered further reductions (~50 U/L) in alkaline phosphatase
  • 39% of patients who were up‑titrated from 5 mg to 10 mg at 6 months achieved the primary endpoint at 12 months1
  • While the trial was designed for up‑titration at 6 months, FDA guidance and product labeling recommend up-titration at 3 months, if tolerated1

a16 patients (7%) who were intolerant did not receive concomitant UDCA: 6 patients (8%) in the OCALIVA 10 mg arm, 5 patients (7%) in the OCALIVA 5→10 mg titration arm, and 5 patients (7%) in the placebo arm.1
