Ipsen to Present New Insights at ASBMR for Potential Treatment of Ultra-rare Disease Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP), Including Global Phase III MOVE Trial Results
Ipsen (Euronext: IPN: ADR: IPSEY) today announced that it will share data from the company’s growing Rare Diseases Therapeutic Area portfolio, with seven presentations at the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) Annual Meeting (September 11-15, 2020). These include the oral presentation of Ipsen’s MOVE trial (during the Novel Therapies for Rare Bone Disease session on Saturday, 12 September [11:00am - 12:15pm ET]), the first and only multicenter Phase III study in fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). The data will be presented by Dr Robert Pignolo, Division of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology, Department of Internal Medicine, Mayo Clinic, and describes the trial outcomes of the oral investigational therapy palovarotene in reducing new heterotopic ossification (HO) volume in 107 pediatric and adult patients with FOP.1 The MOVE efficacy results were compared with data from untreated patients from Ipsen’s Natural History Study (NHS).2 Safety outcomes from the MOVE trial will also be presented.
“Our passion and commitment to understanding rare diseases has driven this research forward and we’re proud to present these data at the ASBMR 2020 Annual Meeting,” said Howard Mayer, M.D., Executive Vice President and Head of Research and Development at Ipsen. “Collaboration is critical with rare disease research and development and we look forward to continuing to work with key thought leaders, clinicians, the patient advocacy community, and regulatory authorities as we build on our research and develop potential therapeutic agents in rare diseases, including for patients with FOP.”
Additionally, four posters reporting data from the NHS will be presented. The NHS is the largest FOP study of this kind worldwide and is the first global, multicenter, longitudinal study designed to measure disease progression over three years.2 Findings from the NHS reinforce that measuring HO is a viable way to monitor changes in FOP and to assess a potential treatment effect over this time period.

Ipsen’s Forward Looking Statement
The forward-looking statements, objectives and targets contained herein are based on the Group’s management strategy, current views and assumptions. Such statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results, performance or events to differ materially from those anticipated herein. All of the above risks could affect the Group’s future ability to achieve its financial targets, which were set assuming reasonable macroeconomic conditions based on the information available today. Use of the words "believes", "anticipates" and "expects" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, including the Group’s expectations regarding future events, including regulatory filings and determinations, and the outcome of this study or other studies. Moreover, the targets described in this document were prepared without taking into account external growth assumptions and potential future acquisitions, which may alter these parameters. These objectives are based on data and assumptions regarded as reasonable by the Group. These targets depend on conditions or facts likely to happen in the future, and not exclusively on historical data. Actual results may depart significantly from these targets given the occurrence of certain risks and uncertainties, notably the fact that a promising product in early development phase or clinical trial may end up never being launched on the market or reaching its commercial targets, notably for regulatory or competition reasons. The Group must face or might face competition from generic products that might translate into a loss of market share. Furthermore, the Research and Development process involves several stages each of which involves the substantial risk that the Group may fail to achieve its objectives and be forced to abandon its efforts with regards to a product in which it has invested significant sums. Therefore, the Group cannot be certain that favorable results obtained during preclinical trials will be confirmed subsequently during clinical trials, or that the results of clinical trials will be sufficient to demonstrate the safe and effective nature of the product concerned. There can be no guarantees a product will receive the necessary regulatory approvals or that the product will prove to be commercially successful. If underlying assumptions prove inaccurate or risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results may differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Other risks and uncertainties include but are not limited to, general industry conditions and competition; general economic factors, including interest rate and currency exchange rate fluctuations; the impact of 6 pharmaceutical industry regulation and health care legislation; global trends toward health care cost containment; technological advances, new products and patents attained by competitors; challenges inherent in new product development, including obtaining regulatory approval; the Group's ability to accurately predict future market conditions; manufacturing difficulties or delays; financial instability of international economies and sovereign risk; dependence on the effectiveness of the Group’s patents and other protections for innovative products; and the exposure to litigation, including patent litigation, and/or regulatory actions. The Group also depends on third parties to develop and market some of its products which could potentially generate substantial royalties; these partners could behave in such ways which could cause damage to the Group’s activities and financial results. The Group cannot be certain that its partners will fulfil their obligations. It might be unable to obtain any benefit from those agreements. A default by any of the Group’s partners could generate lower revenues than expected. Such situations could have a negative impact on the Group’s business, financial position or performance. The Group expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to update or revise any forward-looking statements, targets or estimates contained in this press release to reflect any change in events, conditions, assumptions or circumstances on which any such statements are based, unless so required by applicable law. The Group’s business is subject to the risk factors outlined in its registration documents filed with the French Autorité des Marchés Financiers. The risks and uncertainties set out are not exhaustive and the reader is advised to refer to the Group’s 2019 Universal Registration Document available on its website (www.ipsen.com).

Study Comparing Two Noninvasive Indicators of Fluid Responsiveness on Mechanically Ventilated Patients Finds Masimo PVi ® Effective and Advantageous30.11.2020 08:00:00 CET | Press release
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the findings of a study published in the Ain-Shams Journal of Anesthesiology in which Dr. Diaaeldin Aboelnile and colleagues at Ain-Shams University in Cairo, Egypt compared two noninvasive methods of assessing fluid responsiveness in mechanically ventilated patients, dIVC and Masimo PVi®. They found both methods to be “effective,” but determined that PVi was advantageous because of being “continuous, operator-independent, and more reliable than dIVC.”1 PVi, pleth variability index, is a measure of the dynamic changes in perfusion index that occur during the respiratory cycle.

Luxembourg to Start Real Life Testing of an International Standard for a Digital Circularity Fingerprint for Products27.11.2020 12:00:00 CET | Press release
The Ministry of the Economy of Luxembourg just launched phase two of the development of an international standard. It provides information on the circularity of products to all stakeholders involved along their value chains. A first viable version of the standard is being tested in real life, allowing to identify the most suitable governance model, the audit scheme and reliable IT systems for its management. Luxembourg started the Circularity Dataset Initiative in 2018 to address the difficulty for industry and consumers to access reliable data on the circular properties of a product. A lot of circularity information is missing, as its generation and handling requires too many human and financial resources. Furthermore, trade secrets are hindering transparency and reporting standards are lacking, forcing manufacturers to send out different data sets in diverse formats to customers and product platforms. To tackle these challenges, the Luxembourg government is working with multinational
