I’ll now flip the decision over to Jan Mikkelsen, our President and Chief Government Officer.

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

Thanks, Scott. And good afternoon, everybody. For Ascendis, 2020 was a 12 months to recollect. We succeeded as a crew and had been capable of meet and, in some instances, exceeded all our company targets in 2020. I am proud to have the ability to say that the Ascendis crew was adaptive, inventive and centered on attaining the targets we outlined at the start of final 12 months to carry our TransCon product candidates to sufferers as quick as potential.

For 2021, we’re effectively positioned to proceed to execute and obtain the milestones we now have laid out throughout all of our 5 impartial product candidates. Going again, the significance of the science, certainly one of Ascendis core values is admittedly on the heart of what we do one year a 12 months. Our understanding of the biology and the science it drives our prime improvement course of. I see it many times. If we follow the science, perceive and respect the biology, we will probably be profitable.

With our algorithm of product improvement centered on the affected person and the unmet medical want, mixed with the TransCon know-how, we now have a robust platform that has allowed Ascendis to create not only one potential blockbuster product candidate, however a portfolio of 5 potential blockbuster candidates in two therapeutic areas with extra to come back.

Starting with TransCon development hormone, all through the event, we now have saved the affected person wants in thoughts. From the start, we had been dedicated to construct on the final 30 years of information with each day development hormone and different long-acting development hormone applications. We designed our TransCon development hormone to have an identical tissue distribution sample with receptor activation and publicity as seen for each day development hormone as soon as somatropin is launched from the TransCon development hormone program.

For greater than 30 years, a number of corporations have tried to develop a long-acting development hormone program utilizing a number of totally different applied sciences offering comparable security, efficacy, tolerability, immunogenicity, mode of motion as each day development hormone. Regardless of all this effort, to-date all sufferers are nonetheless being handled with each day development hormone within the US, Europe and Japan. I’m excited to be near all potential regulatory approval of TransCon development hormone within the US and Europe.

Final June, we submitted our PLA for TransCon development hormone for the remedy of pediatric development hormone deficiency and we now have a PDUFA date of June 25, 2021. Later in September final 12 months, we submitted our M&A in Europe and we anticipate potential approval within the fourth quarter this 12 months. Since our regulatory submission, I can see the payoff from our design of TransCon development hormone and the intensive preclinical and medical applications in our interplay with FDA and EMEA.

We imagine our knowledge clearly exhibit once-weekly TransCon development hormone has comparable mode of motion and distribution in key development hormone responsive tissues equivalent to mind, bone, muscle, liver and fats tissue as the expansion hormone administrate for each day development hormone and adults with development hormone. And our dialogue with FDA and EMEA give me consolation that we now have developed an convincing physique of non-clinic and medical knowledge to assist our perception.

In December final 12 months, we had a constructive mid-cycle assembly with FDA the place they indicated the company has no plans for an advisory committee. We proceed to have a constructive dialogue and have begun labeling discussions with the FDA. And we’re wanting ahead to a possible regulatory approval subsequent quarter.

In Europe, our M&A submission for TransCon development hormone final September observe the settlement with Petco to our proposed pediatric investigation plan or known as PIP overlaying the non-clinical and medical improvement of TransCon development hormone in kids all the way down to age of six months. To our information, no overgrowth hormone or development hormone analogs has an authorised PIP. Our expectation for a possible approval of the M&A within the fourth quarter of this 12 months is unchanged. However our innovation didn’t cease the design of our drug substance.

As a part of our effort to handle the unmet medical want, we now have additionally developed an auto-injector for the administration of TransCon development hormone, offering room temperature stability and a small injection quantity through a 31G needle. We launched the TransCon development hormone alpha injector into the Part 3 enliGHten trial the place it is at the moment being efficiently use by over 160 topics within the US with gathered use of greater than 225 units. We anticipate the TransCon development hormone auto-injector will probably be obtainable to sufferers similtaneously the potential industrial launch.

Going ahead, we’re creating an built-in linked well being program that hyperlinks the TransCon development hormone auto-injector with an app and gives data for the sufferers and caregivers associated to adherence and doses. The pediatric development hormone market is a longtime market within the US and Europe with severally each day development hormone merchandise. However we additionally know that medication do not work in sufferers who do not take them.

Even modest lack of adherence results in suboptimal outcomes and doubtlessly to drop out of remedy. In reality, we see that the majority pediatric sufferers within the US cease remedy after three to 4 years of remedy. We now have submitted for publication a manuscript primarily based on claims knowledge demonstrating that the issues of adherence and lack of remedy are doubtlessly a lot worse than reported in revealed literature.

I usually get requested if we predict we are able to develop the present market with TransCon development hormone. These new knowledge describing the shortage of adherence and lack of remedy inform me that there’s a potential large alternative to enhance affected person care by improved adherence, persistence and penetration, which is able to result in higher consequence for sufferers and higher consequence for the society.

To date, I’ve talked about US and Europe, however we’re not stopping there. Ascendis is a worldwide firm with a worldwide pondering addressing unmet wants for a worldwide inhabitants. In Japan, we filed a medical trial notification final 12 months to provoke the Part 3 riGHt Trial for pediatric development hormone deficiency. In China, in 2018, we shaped VISEN Prescription drugs with an investor group to develop TransCon endocrinology uncommon illness product in larger China. VISEN continues to execute on its Part 3 medical trial of TransCon development hormone in kids with development hormone deficiency and can provoke medical improvement for TransCon PTH and TransCon CNP quickly.

Transferring to label growth. We now have the worldwide Part 3 foresiGHt Trial underneath manner for grownup development hormone deficiency. The first goal of the foresiGHt Trial from a regulatory perspective is to exhibit efficacy in comparison with placebo. Nevertheless, an important comparability is to each day development hormone, which is included as a 3rd arm within the foresiGHt Trial. We now have a plan to randomize 240 topics one to at least one to at least one.

I am usually requested, why is grownup development hormone deficiency so essential? What do you get out of the foresiGHt Trial? Progress hormone deficiency isn’t just about top. In kids, top emerged as a main regulatory endpoint. Since adults usually are not rising in top, the first regulatory endpoint is to measure the metabolic consequence of development hormone deficiency to measure change in truncal fats. Provided that a once-weekly development hormone remedy is equal or higher to each day development hormone in each for pediatric and grownup development hormone poor inhabitants, then it can present all of the endocrine advantages of each day development hormone.

We imagine from our Part 3 pediatric applications that TransCon development hormone can present all this endocrine advantages, mixed with our success in grownup development hormone deficiency Part 3 trial. We imagine we’ll proceed to distinguish from all once-weekly development hormone product candidates. We anticipate to finish enrollment of the foresiGHt Trial by late 2021 or early 2022.

Transferring to TransCon PTH. I by no means seen a product like this earlier than, a product that not solely can handle short-term signs of a illness by restoring biochemical management and the standard of life for sufferers, but additionally potential candidates for the long-term complication of the illness as effectively. Hypoparathyroidism, HP, is a situation with impact greater than 200,000 sufferers simply within the US, Europe and Japan. Just like development hormone deficiency, the place the pipeline is absent [Phonetic] or inadequate quantity of the respective hormone, on this case for HP PTH.

In continual post-surgical HP in round 75% of all instances, the parathyroid glands, the organ that produce PTH have been broken or destroyed and the physique can’t be stimulated to supply enough quantity of PTH. Due to this fact, the one manner PTH may be restored to regular physiological stage is by PTH hormone alternative.

TransCon PTH is designed to exchange the hormone at physiological ranges and restore the affected person to regular well being. Once we converse to affected person affected by HP, we hear over and over about how poor the standard of life is, how they needed to cease going to work, all anxious about calcium crashes and making it to an emergency room. These are the short-term signs, pushed by lack of serum calcium management and physiological PTH ranges. Along with the short-term impact, HP sufferers have a number of long-term complication as inadequate kidney operate, cardiovascular danger and irregular turnover.

As TransCon PTH is designed to revive PTH to physiological ranges 24 hours a day, we’ll anticipate to normalize serum calcium to enhance short-term signs. We additionally anticipate to normalize kidney operate and normalize bone well being to cut back long-term problems. So what have we seen? With our six-month open-label extension or early knowledge, we noticed all imply abstract and subdomains, SF-36 high quality of life scores being normalized. Later this month, we’ll current knowledge at an oral presentation at ENDO the place you will note outcomes for the primary time from our HP disease-specific affected person reported consequence instrument after six months within the OLE.

Since then, all 58 matters have now accomplished 12 months of remedy on TransCon PTH with none extra drop out, which supplies me confidence that these topics are continued to see that high quality of life profit with a secure once-daily PTH injection.

Along with the nice knowledge on high quality of life, TransCon PTH additionally exhibit normalization of key biochemical parameter able to long-term complication. After six months within the OLE, imply 24-hour urinary calcium excretion fell on common 57% in comparison with baseline. Virtually all topic demonstrated a normalization or enchancment in urinary calcium excretion.

On measures on bone well being, HP affected person sometimes have low bone turnover. And as a consequence, irregular dense bone in comparison with individuals with out HP, notably the trabecular bone. As anticipated, as we restore physiological PTH stage, we noticed bone turnover will increase with the initiation of TransCon PTH remedy, leading to a development towards normalization of the irregular dense bone, notably the trabecular bone.

So what’s subsequent for TransCon PTH? Through the second quarter of 2021, we plan to purchase 12 months OLE knowledge. We anticipate to see continued regular high quality of life by means of sustained discount of HP signs, proceed regular cerum calcium, proceed regular stage of urinary calcium and proceed regular bone turnover. As a part of extending our international attain for this potential life-changing remedy in the course of the second quarter, along with the 12 months PTH ahead replace, we plan to submit a medical trial notification for a trial evaluating TransCon PTH for adults HP in Japan.

Later this 12 months within the fourth quarter, we plan to report top-line outcomes from the PaTHway trial, a Part 3 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial investigating the protection, tolerability and efficacy of TransCon OTH in grownup with HP. The trial is anticipated to enroll 76 topics at websites in North America and Europe. We’re happy by the information that we now have generated to this point and we imagine the information assist a profile for TransCon PTH to be a possible first-line remedy for HP. We’re assured we are able to actually make a distinction within the lifetime of HP sufferers.

Turning to TransCon CMP. We’re conducting two double-blind, placebo-controlled Part 2 trials in childred aged two to 10 years outdated. However first, the ACcomplisH trial is a dose escalation trial of 12 to fifteen topic is every cohort performed primarily in North America and Europe. The second is the ACcomplisH China trial, which is a cohort growth trial of at the least 60 topic performed in China. VISEN acquired approval for the Chinese language Heart for Drug Analysis to conduct the ACcomplisH China Trial with a design for dose growth as an efficient dose decide for the ACcomplisH trial.

Mixed, these two sudies will enroll greater than 120 topic aged two to 10 to be adopted for 12 months in a double blinded method. Each ACcomplisH And ACcomplisH China will stay blinded till the 12 months follow-up is accomplished. As soon as accomplished, we could have strong medical knowledge from two impartial randomized double blinded placebo managed trials. We plan to supply a TransCon medical program replace within the fourth quarter of 2021.

Lastly, in endocrinology, we introduced in the present day that facilities could have cargo presentation on the ENDO 2021 annual assembly. This can embrace an oral presentation of the six months open label extension from the PaTH Ahead trial for TransCon PTH as I discussed.

In our second therapeutic space, we hosted our first oncology R&D date again in November. To share our imaginative and prescient on the way to use TransCon systemic and inter turmoil know-how to ascertain a brand new paradigm for remedy of most cancers. We predict we are able to develop totally new remedy paradigm in oncology utilizing TransCon applied sciences and handle all steps of the immunity cycle.

We’re making use of the identical product improvement mixture in oncology as we now have efficiently utilized in endocrinology, making use of TransCon know-how to clinically validated mum or dad medication and organic pathways. For TransCon TLR7/8 Agonist, an IND was submitted in December 2020 to provoke the Part 1/2 transcendIT-101 trial in the course of the second quarter of 2021 following monotherapy dosing, we plan to provoke dose escalation together with a checkpoint inhibitor. Preliminary monotherapy dosing outcomes are anticipated within the fourth quarter of 2021.

For TransCon IL-2 beta/gamma, earlier this 12 months, we reported potential best-in-class preclinical knowledge. Our TransCon IL-2 beta/gamma is designed to have best-in-class efficiency receptor bias mixed with an extended half-life of round 22 hours and a low Cmax focus. In non-human primates examine, we now have noticed a extremely bias potent exercise with sustained publicity resulting in best-in-class distant cell growth with minimal impact of eosinophils IL-5 or IL-6 and vascular leak gamma. Primarily based on this knowledge, we imagine TransCon IL-2 beta/gamma has the potential to grow to be a platform patent in oncology remedy. We anticipate to submit an IND or related for TransCon IL-2 beta/gamma within the third quarter of 2021.

I sincerely imagine that our targets of constructing a totally built-in international biopharmaceutical firm will get one step nearer every day. 2020 was a terrific 12 months, a 12 months to recollect for Ascendis as we superior our endocrinology uncommon illness and oncology product candidate. In 2021, we sit up for obtain extra successes as we advance our pipeline forward and nearer to sufferers with unmet medical wants. We’re persevering with to use our algorithm to construct a pipeline in oncology and are dedicated to coming into a 3rd therapeuric space.

That is how we’ll obtain sustainable development, not by advancing only one program however succeeding with a number of potential blockbuster applications in a number of therapeutic areas in a number of geographics.

Now. let me flip the decision over to Scott for a monetary evaluate earlier than we open up for questions.

Scott T. SmithSenior Vice President and Chief Monetary Officer

Thanks quite a bit, Jan. Turning to our monetary outcomes for the complete 12 months ended December 31, 2020. We reported a internet lack of EUR419 million or EUR8.28 per primary and diluted share in comparison with a internet lack of EUR218 million or EUR4.69 per primary and diluted share throughout 2019. Now let me run by means of some elements of those outcomes.

Analysis and improvement prices for 2020 had been EUR260.9 million in comparison with EUR191.6 million throughout 2019. R&D prices in 2020 replicate continued development of our pipeline with the first drivers of the rise, together with an total improve in personnel-related and R&D infrastructure prices. And for TransCon development hormone, or lonapegsomatropin, prices had been greater as a result of buildup of pre-launch inventories in addition to elevated medical trial actions. As a reminder, we at the moment expense manufacturing prices of lonapegsomatropin as R&D prematurely of our anticipated product launch. On the time of product approval, a portion of those R&D prices could also be reversed and capitalized as stock, which is able to lead to a one-time profit to R&D prices.

For TransCon PTH, prices had been greater primarily as a result of system improvement and elevated medical trial prices. For TransCon CNP, prices had been greater primarily as a result of elevated manufacturing and medical trial prices. And at last for oncology therapeutic space, prices had been greater as a result of elevated manufacturing and preclinical actions primarily associated to TransCon TLR 7/8 Agonist and TransCon IL-2 beta/gamma.

Promoting, common and administrative bills for 2020 had been EUR76.7 million in comparison with EUR48.5 million throughout 2019. These greater prices primarily replicate a rise in personnel-related IT and different infrastructure prices in addition to bills related to the continued construct out of our industrial capabilities.

Finance revenue and bills in 2020 included a international trade fee lack of EUR78.9 million in comparison with a acquire of EUR7.7 million in 2019, primarily associated to unrealized losses on translation of our US greenback holdings of money and marketable securities to euros. We ended 2020 with money, money equivalents and marketable securities totaling EUR834.1 million.

As of December 31, 2020, Ascendis had 53,750,386 strange shares excellent. Subsequent to year-end on January 8, 2021 we invested $12.5 million in VISEN Prescription drugs $150 million Collection B financing. Following the financing, we personal roughly 44% of VISEN’s issued and excellent shares. Because of this transaction, we anticipate to acknowledge a non-cash acquire within the first quarter of 2021 of EUR42.3 million.

Turning to 2021, we anticipate our bills to extend as we proceed to construct our industrial capabilities and put together for launch, advance our endocrinology uncommon illness pipeline, develop our actions in oncology and proceed to spend money on the TransCon know-how platform, together with for lonapegsomatropin, construct up a industrial stock forward of potential launch, execution of business prelaunch and launch actions, funding in increasing industrial manufacturing capability to assist anticipated future demand, continued execution of the foresiGHt Trial, a worldwide Part 3 randomized-controlled medical trial and grownup GHD and execution of the riGHt Trial, a Part 3 randomized-controlled medical trial and pediatric GHD in Japan.

For TransCon PTH continued execution of the Part 2 PaTH Ahead trial, which continues to retain 58 topics within the open-label extension and execution of the PaTHway trial, a North American and European Part 3 randomized-controlled medical trial and grownup HP. For TransCon CNP execution of the medical program, which incorporates two randomized placebo-controlled Part 2 medical trials and achondroplasia, the continued ACcomplisH Trial and the ACcomplisH China Trial, which is being performed by means of our strategic investments in VISEN Prescription drugs. And lastly, in our oncology therapeutic space, execution of the transcendIT-101 medical trial for our TransCon TLR 7/8 Agonist and advancing the TransCon IL-2 beta/gamma program into medical improvement.

We anticipate different SG&A bills along with lonapegsomatropin industrial prelaunch and launch actions will embrace continued investments in personnel, techniques and infrastructure to assist our quickly progressing portfolio and rising group. For 2021, we stay on monitor for hitting our company milestones. For lonapegsomatropin, these embrace with a PDUFA date of June 25, 2021, we anticipate approval for pediatric GHD within the second quarter adopted by industrial launch within the third quarter and we anticipate European Fee approval for pediatric GHD within the fourth quarter.

For TransCon PTH, we plan to file a medical trial notification for a Japanese Part 3 trial in grownup HP within the second quarter adopted by reporting prime line outcomes for the part 3 pathway trials in North America and Europe for grownup HP. For TransCon CNP, we anticipate to supply a medical program replace within the fourth quarter. For Transcon TLR7/8 Agonist after dosing within the monotherapy a part of the transcendIT-101, we plan to provoke the dose escalation half together with a checkpoint inhibitor within the second quarter and plan to current preliminary transcendIT-101 leads to the fourth quarter. And at last, for IL-2 beta/gamma, we have deliberate to submit an IND or related findings within the third quarter.

Earlier than we open up the decision for questions, I need to make some factors about our anticipated industrial actions for lonapegsomatropin in 2021. Throughout Q2 this 12 months, we anticipate approval for pediatric GHD on the PDUFA date of June 25. Then throughout Q3, we anticipate to have product obtainable within the US for pediatric GHD. Throughout Q3, as soon as product is offered, we anticipate starting to supply entry to lonapegsomatropin for pediatric GHD sufferers by onboarding sufferers by means of our devoted affected person hub and we don’t anticipate to have placement on industrial formularies at the moment. Lastly, throughout This autumn, we anticipate European Fee advertising and marketing approval for pediatric GHD. We plan to supply steering on the timing of launch in Europe later this 12 months.

With that, operator, we’re able to take questions.

Questions and Solutions:

Operator

[Operator Instructions] Your first query comes from Michelle Gilson from Canaccord Genuity. Your line is open.

Michelle GilsonCanaccord Genuity — Analyst

Hello. Thanks for taking my questions. I assume, the primary one, are you able to possibly talk about the cadence for TransCon GH of getting on to the formularies? How did that occur over the course of a 12 months? After which, my second query for TransCon PTH from a security perspective, is there a distinction between changing PTH at physiological ranges in hypopara sufferers, I assume, on the dosage you are evaluating versus including pulses of PTH to stimulate an anabolic impact? After which, I assume, on the doses that you simply’re evaluating for TransCon PTH, would you anticipate there to ultimately be a black field warning or limitation period remedy like there may be for Forteo, given these totally different results on the bone?

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

Thanks, Michelle. So, earlier than our potential, we’ll flip it over Jesper. I could not doubtlessly take somewhat off the PTH, a query that you simply take up. And let me simply repeat what we’re doing with TransCon PTH associated to bone construction. You probably have an untreated HP affected person which have a better bone density since you principally have an unnatural low bone turnover as a result of you haven’t the physiological PTH stage of PTH. And if you happen to look on the CM stage of PTH is effectively documented within the literature that you simply principally see and primary curve which have a peak to trough about 30% throughout the whole 24-hours cycle. And what we noticed within the six months open label extension knowledge? What we noticed that after we restored physiological PTH ranges? We principally activated the traditional bone turnover that you simply see in a traditional human being that haven’t any concern associated to potential decrease stage of PTH. We noticed that by accelerating at a better stage of each the anabolic and catabolic bone markers, however nonetheless being positioned in what we name the upper stage of regular ranges.

And what we noticed was the related consequence of that. We additionally noticed that this bone density that’s irregular dense as a result of it even have a construction that primary usually are not like a traditional bone as a result of it has no bone turnover, begin to be normalizing. So subsequently, we noticed that development to approaching the traditional stage with our SAT rating is outlined as zero. That’s what we noticed within the six months knowledge. This can be a steady course of the place we noticed the principle impact on trabecular bone. If we principally appeared on cortical bone, that was not the identical form of decline in SAT rating. It was principally steady as a result of they do not have that elevated excessive density that you simply principally particular for trabecular bone construction. What we noticed with our bone markers what we noticed in our bone density is simply following precisely as what we now have anticipated from the physiology of restoring a traditional PTH stage.

In our interplay with FDA and EMEA, our first dialogue associated to PTH and impact as an anabolic compound was after we talk about the essential conduct a COG examine. A COG examine is principally a examine that has been achieved for all different PTH product to my information. We bought a transparent reply again from justification and scientific justification that there was no have to do it, as a result of what you’re making use of within the TransCon PTH product is only a normalization of PTH stage and never producing and what I might name a superficial logical PTH stage that you simply do with the classical compound of PTH which are getting used as a [Indecipherable] in osteoporosis.

Due to this fact, I imagine there’s a truthful probability that we are able to keep away from any form of REMS program, as a result of what we proceed to see with our medical knowledge and keep in mind on the date of submitting, we could have 18 months. So we principally observe this for one month extra. We anticipate to have such a powerful knowledge bundle, that we are able to present what we see is only a normalization of this. So I am hopeful that the indicators will proceed to play in, so we may be able that we are able to do a scientific justification saying there is no such thing as a want for a REMS program.

And likewise, we’re additionally seeing now that if you happen to look on the osteoporosis compound, that black field warning has been eliminated for Forteo. And likewise, that may be a primary in U.S. scenario, as a result of in Europe, they don’t seem to be believing that the pre-clinical discovering you are taking with osteoporosis or osteosarcoma for short-acting PTH is related for people. So from that perspective, I feel we now have a powerful scientific justification, to keep away from each a black field warning and a REMS program.

The opposite half which is also a scientific justification, is that affected person have been on pump, the place they’re utilizing both Forteo or Natpara for a number of, a number of years. And simply recall if you happen to use a pump system, with both Forteo or PTH-31, your primary half and IV injection for eight to 12 instances in a subcutaneous tissue in a single hour. This can present a flat, flat, flat steady publicity contained in the plasma compartment. And if you look on long run case research, even in kids pediatric, you see regular development there. So I do not imagine there may be any form of scientific justification, that’s risk, that there’s a lot of dialogue primary have and significant impression on the bone construction.

Jesper, will you speak about how we’re addressing and guaranteeing we now have the optimum place for our market assess?

Jesper HoilandSenior Vice President, World Chief Business Officer

Completely. And Michelle thanks very a lot. Principally for lonapegsomatropin, our key focus is market entry for the industrial markets. The industrial market represents roughly 180 million People, and is represented additionally primarily — 75% of the market is through the three large PBMs, and that is — the way in which that you simply negotiate with the PBMs for market entry, is principally they ship out their requests in the course of the summer time months, after which the ultimate name you would say for addressing the market entry for 2022, principally comes within the final week of August starting of September. So we now have a golden alternative to be first in the marketplace with lonapegsomatropin, as we’re anticipating the PDUFA date on twenty fifth of June, and subsequently, we will probably be negotiating with the three large PBMs market entry for 2022, and we do imagine that we’ll have a very good market entry for 2022 on the premise of, that we might be the primary within the long-acting phase doubtlessly, the lonapegsomatropin. I hope that answered your query?

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

Thanks Jesper.

Michelle GilsonCanaccord Genuity — Analyst

Sure thanks very a lot and congrats on the [Speech Overlap].

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

Thanks quite a bit.

Operator

And your subsequent query comes from the road of Jessica Fye from J.P. Morgan. Your line is open.

Jessica FyeJ.P. Morgan — Analyst

Hey guys, good afternoon and thanks for taking my questions. This one is perhaps for Dana, are you able to inform us whether or not the mandatory pre-approval inspections have taken place but for TransCon Progress Hormone and your expectations for these being accomplished previous to the PDUFA, given any COVID journey points? I do know you mentioned a number of instances on the decision, that you simply guys anticipate approval in 2Q. So it appears like possibly issues are on monitor there. That is the primary query. After which second, form of constructing on the final query, pondering forward to the 12 month open label extension knowledge for the PTH part 2 trial arising in 2Q, are you able to speak about what you’ll anticipate to see on BMD on the 12-month time level, and what which means for the product? I assume extra particularly, at what level do you anticipate to have medical knowledge that can exhibit, that the normalization that you simply’re seeing in BMD early on doesn’t overshoot and result in beneath regular BMD. Thanks.

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

So Dana, would you are taking the primary query?

Dana PizzutiSenior Vice President, Growth Operations

Sure, so far as the inspections go, we’re lastly beginning to see a little bit of motion from the FDA by way of their exercise. In reality, we have just lately had a GCP inspection at a web site for our primary enroller of development hormone. In order that was accomplished final week. So far as the manufacturing inspection goes, we’re nonetheless in communication with the FDA, about when that may be scheduled, and there are a few alternatives by way of alternate approaches which are obtainable. So we nonetheless really feel that we type of can handle these points, earlier than it has any impression on the PDUFA date. However we’re additionally noticing that FDA is doing extra manufacturing inspections outdoors the U.S., as COVID is considerably subsiding in sure locations. Okay?

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

I feel simply going again to your second query, and I feel we have to take it into this angle as my preliminary feedback to Michelle, as a result of there will probably be primary layouts, that what we’re seeing now could be only a normalization of bone construction that you simply anticipate to do, if you really are coming right into a alternative remedy and observing that you’re offering PTH and physiological stage. And you can too see the differentiation between trabecular and cortical bone. If you happen to look within the knowledge, you may see the place we anticipate to see the most important transforming is on trabecular bone, and we additionally seeing that proper construction coming in of the bone. So my perspective is that, I can’t see any fear about that, as a result of that isn’t regular biology, and we now have kids which were 10 years on infusion pump, rising up with regular bone construction on an infusion pump. We now have adults which are sitting 5 to 6 years on infusion pump, and observing all the identical issues.

And I feel everybody to only have a transparent understanding about an infusion pump and insulin and different issues like that, would acknowledge, there’s a complete flat curve you present with infusion pump. So I’m actually misplaced within the logic of the place it’s coming in, as a result of what we’re simply seeing is regular biology, which we see on lot of different components. We see the identical factor with urinary calcium. We see the lack of comfortable tissue calcification. We see anticipated regular physiology. I can’t change physiology. If you wish to have a hormone-replacement remedy, then you might want to anticipate to see the end result of being a traditional human being.

And your subsequent query comes from the road of Alethia Younger from Cantor. Your line is open.

Alethia YoungerCantor Fitzgerald — Analyst

Sure, thanks for taking my query and congrats on all of the progress. I simply needed to circulation — possibly two questions. One simply clarifying on the formulary, possibly I missed it, do you suppose that you will have form of a broad the formulary that might embrace adults and a number of the different development hormones? After which the second is simply, in oncology, as you proceed to form of do work there, do you’re feeling like there may be one goal between IL-2 or TLR 7 that has form of a, in a larger goal danger or do you form of really feel prefer it’s considerably equal and you’ve got a good quantity of confidence in each? Thanks.

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

Jesper, I really suppose, that what you are actually addressing is a part of our essential lengthy technique. And you recognize for each product, one step is to getting authorised and we now have seen long-acting product being authorised now within the U.S. with out being launched, as a result of that isn’t what I name an related launch technique, the place the product entry is significant to launch. So what we’re addressing is the important thing aspect in our total lengthy technique, and that is the place we now have an enormous consolation in what we’re doing, as a result of we’re not solely feeling that we’re offering a best-in-class product alternative, however we’re additionally offering into the first-in-class development hormone deficiency marketplace for pediatric kids. So Jesper, do you’ve got something additional so as to add?

Jesper HoilandSenior Vice President, World Chief Business Officer

Yeah, in fact, simply so as to add that within the preliminary part, we anticipate to get the pediatric indication, which is the overwhelming majority of the market, whereas the grownup indication solely represents 10% to 12% of the market. So we’ll enter into the lion’s share of the market, and with the pediatric indication.

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

And going again to oncology, you noticed we constructed up a pipeline of three impartial product alternative, endocrinology uncommon illness. We’ll proceed to construct up our pipeline in oncology. What we now have with our two hopeful medical applications, now in three to 4 months from now, we actually have a paradigm shift, the way to deal with tumor. And what we actually need to do with the tumor, is make a kick-start. We need to kick begin the immunogenic response right into a stable tumor. That is how we predict and on the similar time, we include, what we imagine is usually a next-generation of the way to do immunological stimulation. We now have seen the success of checkpoint inhibitor, however we’re additionally seeing the limitation. Once we see how potent our TransCon 2 beta gamma is a very distinctive compound. And for this reason we see and construct on the whole immunological understanding from Juha and his total group, is to construct extra product alternative, so we principally are a totally built-in oncology firm, with all of the facet of the immunological — immune cycle, the place we now have addressed all pathway, and that is our imaginative and prescient, how we need to be a serious participant in that phase, too. Juha, do you’ve got different feedback?

Juha PunnonenSenior Vice President, Head of Oncology

Yeah, I feel simply so as to add that I feel, we imagine that they each have very distinctive properties and we could have a novel alternative within the remedy of most cancers. They clearly are very totally different product profiles, one being intra-tumoral administration, one being systemic. We anticipate them to additionally work very successfully collectively, onerous to check with one another, however I feel our level actually is that they each have their distinctive spot within the remedy of most cancers, and also will work additively whereas treating these sufferers.

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

So I feel the visionary pondering we now have, and why we imagine we needed to be a participant in oncology, even when we might suppose that’s so totally different setting in comparison with uncommon illness endocrinology. We imagine, of the ability of the TransCon know-how, that provides us such a serious development to make extremely differentiated product alternative, primary nobody else could make. And by doing that and construct on our algorithm on primary validated, goal validated mum or dad drug, we additionally imagine we are able to have in the identical profitable manner in our improvement.

And after we go to the third product alternative, we principally construct on what we now have achieved in TransCon IL-2 beta gamma, TransCon TLR 7-8, that will probably be a powerful synergy what we’re doing within the third one. That is how we need to suppose, how we need to make a paradigm shift.

Unidentified Participant

[Technical Issues] TransCon CNP in your opening remarks, however I used to be simply questioning if you happen to might simply elaborate somewhat bit extra on this system. How do you select your ACcomplisH examine doses and the way have you ever designed your ACcomplisH China examine as a way to leverage your findings within the ACcomplisH examine within the U.S. and EU trial, and the way ought to we interpret these two outcomes once they emerge later in 4Q?

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

We simply misplaced the start of it, however I imagine that what you are referring to is our TransCon CNP program?

Unidentified Participant

Oh yeah, that is appropriate. TransCon CNP.

Scott T. SmithSenior Vice President and Chief Monetary Officer

I feel that’s what you had been referring to. And I really imagine that we’re having a serious effort now to know this — I feel essential illness. We all know how CNP has functioned, we now have recognized that for 15-20 years. We all know that biology and the science behind it, and that’s what has directed our two program with TransCon CNP. We are actually able that we now have a novel product alternative with TransCon CNP, which might present a steady publicity for as much as one week with one single dose, and we all know we are able to do it in an especially secure method. And we do it now in two impartial product, you may say, two impartial medical trials. However what we actually need to do, will not be solely to have a look at one single parameter. We’re aiming to go all the way down to the new child kids as quick as potential. We’ll, due to our distinctive security profile, handle to begin already an NH-II. And we’re devoted to maneuver it down as early as potential, as quick as potential, all the way down to new child kids, as a result of we all know if we need to handle comorbidity, a few of them are irreversible occurring of their early stage, and that’s actually what we need to do.

Mark is main a serious effort in Ascendis, how actually to develop this system, involving a number of totally different comorbidities. And I have no idea Mark, if you happen to might say just a few phrases, the way you additionally use our enormous pure historical past examine now, and attempt to combine the event and comorbidities and attempt to develop them in a novel medical improvement plan, so we doubtlessly can handle not solely heiGHt, but additionally the opposite comorbidities?

Mark A. BachSenior Vice President, Scientific Growth and Medical Affairs for Endocrine Medical Sciences

Positive, I can say just a few phrases. Thanks Jan. So we now have an ongoing pure historical past examine, which is offering us very worthwhile data and one of many issues we discover after we speak with people with achondroplasia, is there — the heiGHt will not be the most important concern that they need us to have a look at, however slightly a number of the comorbidities, points with foramen magnum, points with otitis media, points with airway. And so for us, it has been a vital, not simply to be ready to have a look at heiGHt, however to essentially perceive the comorbidities higher, and we’re utilizing the pure historical past examine, to attempt to acquire details about the comorbidities’ frequency time of prevalence, and to present us sufficient data to efficiently examine them in a medical trial. So I feel that is what Jan is alluding to, and it is really offering us even early on, what we predict will probably be helpful data. Thanks Jan.

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

So what’s Mark…

Unidentified Participant

Mark A. BachSenior Vice President, Scientific Growth and Medical Affairs for Endocrine Medical Sciences

Proper.

Unidentified Participant

Okay, nice. Thanks. After which my subsequent query is on TransCon PTH. Primarily based on our conversations with endocrinologists, some docs favor to see T scores over Z scores in adults, and our query is do you’ve got plans to current this and the way does that evaluate to T scores?

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

T rating and Z rating are full totally different impartial benchmark in measuring. Z rating is to a traditional inhabitants, and that is additionally what we’re utilizing in development hormone deficiency after we speak about heiGHt. You sometimes use a set rating, as a result of that’s the most related one. If you speak about osteoporosis compound, you usually use a T rating, as a result of that is the way in which you principally are attempting to check what was optimum for the individual. However I feel that isn’t actually the goal of this 12 months. We can also look on the T rating, it is principally offering the identical steering and the identical factor that we see because the S rating, However as we now have a hormone-replacement remedy, it’s typical what you need to, you need to do a normalization of all totally different aspect of the physique to be as a traditional human being, that is the definition of hormone-replacement.

If you happen to go to osteoporosis, you need to redo and reset, what you name a nationwide decline in a number of the bone construction, and for this reason you in a roundabout way referring right into a T rating. However that is coming from a demographic that isn’t constructing on the affected person inhabitants, that has an entire totally different dense bone construction than what you see somewhere else, as a result of there’s a dense construction that’s occurring, to what we name a non-natural course of, the place you’re principally simply build up a dense bone construction, since you are actually turnover. That’s not the identical factor to have a wholesome bone construction. Nobody is ever claiming that is the bone construction you’ve got in HP affected person is wholesome, even is extra dense, as a result of it is an outdated bone construction. So I feel it is not significant to check to a T rating. Positive, we now have the information if in case you have checked out it, what’s significant for a hormone-replacement remedy is in comparison with a Z rating.

Hello, good afternoon. Thanks for taking my questions. Only a couple right here. Might you please remind us a type of timeline by way of the pediatric Part-III trial that may start in Japan. And type of, I do know you’ve got utilized for the CTN. So when is it type of more likely to — type of, we’re going to get the inexperienced sign to go forward. After which by way of the HP Part-III trial, would there be any change to the trial design itself by way of inclusion or exclusion standards of sufferers, primarily based in your six-month knowledge?

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

I feel the primary query is reflecting on pediatric development hormone deficiency trial or riGHt trial. Mark, are you able to give us the standing of our riGHt trials that you’ve intensive expertise in Japan?

Mark A. BachSenior Vice President, Scientific Growth and Medical Affairs for Endocrine Medical Sciences

Sure, completely, I really spent — I spent 10 years of my profession, dwelling and dealing and doing medical analysis in Japan. And related, to the U.S. if you file — when you file a CTN, except they object, then two to 4 weeks later you can begin your examine, and in order that’s normally not fee limiting — the approval is normally not fee limiting. However in any case that examine is definitely going forward, and is within the screening part. So I feel it is, there is no such thing as a roadblocks to proceed doing the event in Japan.

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

I feel from an organization perspective, we will probably be in a novel place, as a result of it appeared like all our product alternative in three totally different indications, pediatric development hormone deficiency, grownup development hormone deficiency, and HP will almost be aligned for approval, almost in the identical time of the 12 months. Plus I feel, it’s a distinctive scenario for us to search out an optimum method to make a industrial effort on this area, was typical to contain Japan South Korea and different main nation outdoors Larger China in that area.

Anita DushyanthBerenberg Capital — Analyst

Okay. After which so far as the Part-III HP trial, will there be any adjustments within the trial design primarily based on the six month knowledge?

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

Associated to the six month knowledge, we now have disclosed in our open-label extension. We’ll principally have the identical affected person inhabitants coming into the trial as we noticed in our Part II trial. That won’t be — I’ve to suppose this, Mark you may appropriate me, I feel it is somewhat bit broader this time, as a result of there’s a affected person inhabitants as HD H1 sufferers, that we even have included it as a result of they’ll vastly profit to have a traditional physiological stage of PTH like a put up surgical one. So this type of affected person inhabitants additionally being opened up within the Part-III trial and we additionally imagine that it will be important, that they’ve a possibility to get an optimum PTH remedy, with physiological PTH stage 24 hours. And from that perspective is, we really are having the opposite change in primary within the — the place we checked out, what was actually troublesome within the Part II trial and what the — why we, you at all times took on screening failures. Why do we now have screenings failure, what’s the driver of the screening failure. And we really realized, it was actually, actually troublesome for an HP affected person, simply to have a traditional serum calcium of 8.3. It was scorching simply by customary of care, taking activated vitamin D, taking calcium complement to satisfy them as much as 8.3. You recognize, the traditional calcium is often within the 9. In trials right here, we now have between 8.3 and 10.3. However we’re able that we principally decrease the entry standards, so you may go all the way down to 7.8 to be a part of the trial. And it was principally to make sure, that every one this affected person group, which had been unattainable, primary to be able to titrate updated.

Mark, do you’ve got different aspect or something I’ve forgotten?

Mark A. BachSenior Vice President, Scientific Growth and Medical Affairs for Endocrine Medical Sciences

Yeah, I imply, there’s just a few different delicate variations between phases. We’re principally counting on what we discovered in Part II and going to Part III. So in Part II, once more for the primary efficacy trial, the dose is mounted or the primary 4 weeks, after which allowed to titrate, in Part III we’re allowed to titrate from the start, which makes thanks medical sense. And in part II, the higher dose restrict was decrease than what we’re permitting in Part III, primarily based on what we have discovered in Part II. So there’s a few small issues, after which the opposite is that in Part II, we validated the illness particular high quality of life instrument, that can then be utilized in Part III — so — as an consequence measure. So I feel these are the first variations between the 2 trials.

Hello guys. Thanks for taking my questions. I assume two from my facet. So first one on TransCon Progress Hormone. Now that you’ve the 2 years knowledge, are you able to remind us how lengthy you’re planning to proceed following up these sufferers, and what is going to you do with this knowledge and do you anticipate to submit these knowledge to the regulators as effectively? And second query is on TransCon PTH; nice to see that also virtually all sufferers are on remedy within the open label extension half. Possibly transferring, leaping just a few steps forward towards commercialization, what are the teachings you have discovered from Natpara, and why do you suppose TransCon PTH will probably be commercially extra profitable? Thanks.

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

Sure, thanks quite a bit. Thanks quite a bit for the questions. The primary one is primary as addressing what will we do within the flight — within the trial that we proceed on — in our Part III, the place we now have an open label extension for each from the fliGHt and the heiGHt trial, which proceed on it. And at the moment we see affected person coming to a scenario, that they primary are reaching remaining heiGHt. We’re able, we’ll proceed this open label extension trial. So we principally can proceed to gather distinctive details about how we primary are offering a remedy, the place each little one have a possibility to realize their anticipated top, not solely top, but additionally all components like physique composition and different issues like that, that we talked about. And we predict that may be a actually essential factor.

We’re operating our trial in a number of nations, and we hope and anticipate nonetheless to proceed in most of this nation. However Mark, you are sitting with all the price of dedication now right here, and maybe you can provide a brief replace about what we anticipate to proceed to execute — what the abstract could be wish to proceed to present you knowledge for this essential trial?

Mark A. BachSenior Vice President, Scientific Growth and Medical Affairs for Endocrine Medical Sciences

Positive. Would you like me so as to add a few feedback Jan?

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

Yeah.

Mark A. BachSenior Vice President, Scientific Growth and Medical Affairs for Endocrine Medical Sciences

Yeah. Okay. So if you recognize the enliGHten trial, which is the mixed ongoing examine from fliGHt in heiGHt is constant and as Jan mentioned, we’re getting very good knowledge on it, a number of the sufferers are certainly getting towards their close to grownup top, others have some room to go. I feel at the least in the meanwhile, the examine is constant. And I might anticipate each clinicians and regulators might have some curiosity in having some longer-term knowledge, and so at this level, I feel its untimely to make a dedication and the way lengthy it can proceed, however it’s actually persevering with for now, and delivering worthwhile knowledge. I feel over the subsequent months, we’ll have a greater concept about what longer-term knowledge we wish or would wish to gather. However, actually its ongoing now and actually nonetheless giving very helpful data.

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

So I feel addressing your query. What’s the studying from Natpara? Even if you happen to develop a product like adjunct to straightforward per care, there may be nonetheless an enormous want for such a product, after which you may almost think about what’s the want could be when you’ve got a hormone alternative remedy and never simply an adjunct remedy. That’s the differentiation. We’re competing in two totally different segments, one is an adjunct remedy, we now have positioned TransCon PTH as a hormone alternative remedy, addressing all features of the illness, each short-term signs, long-term problems. That’s the most important distinction between the 2 product, that is like an apple and an orange for my part.

And final query comes from the road of Yanan Zhu from Wells Fargo Securities. Your line is open.

Yanan ZhuWells Fargo — Analyst

Hello, thanks for taking my query. So a pair on the CNP program and a pair on the PTH program. So for the CNP program, to establish a dose to maneuver ahead into the ACcomplisH China trial, do you might want to wait till all 4 blinded dose cohorts within the US/EU ACcomplisH trial to be accomplished, or might you unblind every dose cohort as you go? After which any plan to open a US/EU dose growth trial for the CNP program? Thanks.

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

Nice query. I feel we’re able, that we’re aiming to not unblind it. We predict it is actually, actually, actually essential to not unblind it. However we additionally imagine that it is potential on a blinded foundation, to be able to have some good steering that may be a possible are in acceleration that we now have an energetic dose. We now have a number of main consequence to be wanting in. We even have a sequence of biomarkers that we’re addressing and different aspect that might give us a steering about the place we’re. And that is the place Mark and his crew is admittedly creating how actually to look on all this knowledge and be satisfied that we now have one thing that’s significant to maneuver ahead in a dose escalation and dose growth on it. And that’s the job of Mark and his individuals to be fairly certain, however are assured that we see one thing on a blinded foundation. So we do not need to unblind the trial in the beginning is completed.

The second, that is as much as the scenario. Sure doubtlessly, we’ll try this relying on that. We’re in a novel place to VISEN Prescription drugs and the expertise for the crew in China [Phonetic] to conduct this trial, that we now have so quick entry to sufferers in Larger China. However we’re additionally seeing that’s — we’re additionally seeing the identical factor in Europe and U.S., in Australia and different locations. So enormous curiosity for our trial, that won’t be restricted to any form of limitation in what number of sufferers we need to soak up. So I have no idea, Mark, about our plans to doubtlessly open up a European/U.S. arm within the dose growth? I do not suppose it is one thing we actually have selected but.

Mark A. BachSenior Vice President, Scientific Growth and Medical Affairs for Endocrine Medical Sciences

No, we had not mentioned it for now. Issues are going effectively, each within the international trial and the China trial. So it is not one thing we talked about to this point. However actually, ought to or not it’s vital, we might speak about it, however not on the agenda proper now.

Yanan ZhuWells Fargo — Analyst

Received it. And on the PTH program, what sort of curiosity are you seeing within the PaTHway Part-III trial? Is there enthusiasm because of the knowledge you reported from the Part-II open label extension? After which is the protection database from 76 sufferers thought-about enough for the regulators? Thanks.

Jan Moller MikkelsenPresident and Chief Government Officer

That is two questions. The primary query is how excessive is the understanding about what we are able to present with TransCon PTH all through the HP affected person society and physicians. I’ve by no means seen something like that earlier than. Once we see the [Indecipherable] evaluation, how individuals get their life again once more. And certain, it’s serving to us to exit and make a broader indication about it, like within the convention, however we already see an enormous enthusiasm in every single place, so to be a part of this trial. So I imagine that once I see how TransCon PTH is a sport changer. We’re addressing the lifetime of greater than 200,000 sufferers simply in Europe, U.S. and Japan. And what we now have seen primary by having 58 out of 58 primary proceed on it, everybody has an enormous, enormous advantage of this remedy. And associated to the protection database, I feel, Dana, you may clarify how we’re constructing our mixed security database each from our Part 2 trial and in addition what we’ll see in our Part 3 trial.

Dana PizzutiSenior Vice President, Growth Operations

Sure. For the type of approval, as we mentioned with the company, too, in our — and the Part-II assembly, the mixture of the knowledge from the Part-II and the Part-III will fulfill the factors for the protection thresholds for the purposes. So did that reply your query?
