–Three scientific abstracts via one oral and two poster presentations detail the Company's latest clinical research findings on the therapeutic effect of TERLIVAZ for adults with HRS involving rapid reduction in kidney function1

DUBLIN, Nov. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Mallinckrodt plc (OTCMKTS: MNKTQ), a global specialty pharmaceutical company, today announced that three scientific abstracts evaluating treatment with TERLIVAZ® (terlipressin) for injection for adults with hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) with rapid reduction in kidney function1 – including its impact on patient care, key HRS endpoints and patient comorbidity – will be presented at the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) Kidney Week 2023 Scientific Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, taking place November 2-5, 2023.

TERLIVAZ is the first and only FDA-approved product indicated to improve kidney function in adults with HRS with rapid reduction in kidney function,1 an acute and life-threatening condition requiring hospitalization.2

Please see Limitation of Use and Important Safety Information, including Boxed Warning, below.

Mallinckrodt's three scientific abstracts at ASN's Kidney Week 2023 Scientific Meeting, two of which will take place on November 2 and one on November 4, will be presented by Juan Carlos Q. Velez, MD, and Hani M. Wadei, MD.

Juan Carlos Q. Velez, MD, will present findings from a post hoc analysis of the Phase III CONFIRM clinical trial exploring the incidence of HRS reversal in patients treated with TERLIVAZ plus albumin versus placebo plus albumin to determine if an improvement in serum creatinine of >30% was associated with improved clinical outcomes.3 The study evaluated the magnitude of improvement in serum creatinine level from baseline to the end of treatment, and its potential relationship with patient's length of intensive care unit stay and the incidence of renal replacement therapy, among other clinical measures.3

A pooled analysis of the results from the three largest prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical studies in patients with HRS (OT-0401, REVERSE, and CONFIRM) will be presented by Hani M. Wadei, MD.4 The analysis assessed the role of TERLIVAZ plus albumin versus placebo plus albumin on HRS reversal in the subpopulation of patients with comorbidities of alcoholic hepatitis, mean arterial pressure of <70 mmHg and/or systemic inflammatory response syndrome.4

In an oral presentation, Hani M. Wadei, MD, will also present a post hoc analysis of the Phase III, randomized, placebo-controlled CONFIRM study evaluating the incidence, indications, and modes of renal replacement therapy used in the subgroup of patients with fluid overload, as determined by investigator assessment.5 Patients with fluid overload included those who reported hemodynamic edema and effusions.5

Additional information on these studies can be found below.

"The CONFIRM clinical trial was the largest-ever prospective, randomized clinical trial of TERLIVAZ in patients with hepatorenal syndrome (HRS),1 and continues to offer new learnings and insights as reflected in the upcoming presentations at the American Society of Nephrology's Annual Meeting," said Khurram Jamil, Vice President, Hepatology, Clinical Development & Critical Care. "We're hopeful these findings will continue to inform the medical community's approach to diagnosis and clinical management of this critical condition, leading to better outcomes for HRS patients with rapid reduction in kidney function."1

These studies are sponsored by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals and include:

INDICATION AND LIMITATION OF USE

TERLIVAZ is indicated to improve kidney function in adults with hepatorenal syndrome with rapid reduction in kidney function.

  • Patients with a serum creatinine >5 mg/dL are unlikely to experience benefit.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

WARNING: SERIOUS OR FATAL RESPIRATORY FAILURE

  • TERLIVAZ may cause serious or fatal respiratory failure. Patients with volume overload or with acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) Grade 3 are at increased risk. Assess oxygenation saturation (e.g., SpO2) before initiating TERLIVAZ.
  • Do not initiate TERLIVAZ in patients experiencing hypoxia (e.g., SpO2 <90%) until oxygenation levels improve. Monitor patients for hypoxia using continuous pulse oximetry during treatment and discontinue TERLIVAZ if SpO2 decreases below 90%.

Contraindications

TERLIVAZ is contraindicated:

  • In patients experiencing hypoxia or worsening respiratory symptoms.
  • In patients with ongoing coronary, peripheral, or mesenteric ischemia.

Warnings and Precautions

  • Serious or Fatal Respiratory Failure: Obtain baseline oxygen saturation and do not initiate TERLIVAZ in hypoxic patients. Monitor patients for changes in respiratory status using continuous pulse oximetry and regular clinical assessments. Discontinue TERLIVAZ in patients experiencing hypoxia or increased respiratory symptoms.

Manage intravascular volume overload by reducing or discontinuing the administration of albumin and/or other fluids and through judicious use of diuretics. Temporarily interrupt, reduce, or discontinue TERLIVAZ treatment until patient volume status improves. Avoid use in patients with ACLF Grade 3 because they are at significant risk for respiratory failure.

  • Ineligibility for Liver Transplant: TERLIVAZ-related adverse reactions (respiratory failure, ischemia) may make a patient ineligible for liver transplantation, if listed. For patients with high prioritization for liver transplantation (e.g., MELD ≥35), the benefits of TERLIVAZ may not outweigh its risks.
  • Ischemic Events: TERLIVAZ may cause cardiac, cerebrovascular, peripheral, or mesenteric ischemia. Avoid use of TERLIVAZ in patients with a history of severe cardiovascular conditions or cerebrovascular or ischemic disease. Discontinue TERLIVAZ in patients who experience signs or symptoms suggestive of ischemic adverse reactions.
  • Embryo-Fetal Toxicity: TERLIVAZ may cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. If TERLIVAZ is used during pregnancy, the patient should be informed of the potential risk to the fetus.

Adverse Reactions

  • The most common adverse reactions (≥10%) include abdominal pain, nausea, respiratory failure, diarrhea, and dyspnea.

About Hepatorenal Syndrome (HRS)
Hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) involving rapid reduction in kidney function1 is an acute and life-threatening condition that occurs in people with advanced liver disease.2 HRS is classified into two distinct types – a rapidly progressive type that leads to acute renal failure where patients are typically hospitalized for their care and a more chronic type that progresses over weeks to months.2 HRS involving rapid reduction in kidney function1 is estimated to affect more than 35,000 Americans annually and rates of HRS hospitalizations are increasing.6,7 If left untreated, HRS with rapid reduction in kidney function1 has a median survival time of approximately two weeks and greater than 80 percent mortality within three months.8
