Ascendis Pharma A/S Announces Presentations for TransCon™ PTH at Upcoming Medical Conferences

05/06/2021 | 04:16pm EDT

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, May 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ascendis Pharma A/S (Nasdaq: ASND), a biopharmaceutical company that utilizes its innovative TransCon technologies to address unmet medical needs, today announced presentations featuring TransCon PTH at two upcoming medical conferences: the 48th annual meeting of the European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS), taking place virtually May 6-8, 2021 and the 23rd European Congress of Endocrinology taking place virtually May 22-26, 2021.

“We are excited to share the 26-week open-label extension (OLE) data from our phase 2 PaTH Forward Trial in adult patients with hypoparathyroidism with the European medical community,” said Mark Bach, M.D., Ph.D., Senior Vice President of Endocrine Medical Sciences at Ascendis Pharma.  

“These data provide evidence indicating that TransCon PTH has the potential to be a first line therapy as a hormone replacement in patients with hypoparathyroidism. The study was selected for oral presentations by both ECTS and ECE meeting organizers which we think underscores the significance of these results,” continued Dr. Bach.

About TransCon™ Technology

TransCon refers to “transient conjugation.” The proprietary TransCon platform is an innovative technology to create new therapies that are designed to optimize therapeutic effect, including efficacy, safety and dosing frequency. TransCon molecules have three components: an unmodified parent drug, an inert carrier that protects it, and a linker that temporarily binds the two. When bound, the carrier inactivates and shields the parent drug from clearance. When injected into the body, physiologic conditions (e.g., pH and temperature) initiate the release of the active, unmodified parent drug in a predictable manner. Because the parent drug is unmodified, its original mode of action is expected to be maintained. TransCon technology can be applied broadly to a protein, peptide or small molecule in multiple therapeutic areas, and can be used systemically or locally.
