Top-line data readout from the Phase 3 trial in PFIC is expected in late-2020.

Mirum is also developing volixibat for treating adult patients with cholestatic liver diseases, with the Phase 2 trials set to start in 2020 and clinical data expected in 2022.

Mirum is yet to turn in revenues. For the three months ended March 31, the company reported a net loss of $5.98 million.
