Daix (France), Long Island City (New York, United States), April 7, 2022 – Inventiva (Euronext Paris and Nasdaq: IVA), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of oral small molecule therapies for the treatment of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and other diseases with significant unmet medical needs, today announced that the abstract “Lanifibranor, a pan-PPAR agonist, improves markers of cardiometabolic health in patients with NASH” has been selected for oral presentation during the third International Conference on Fatty Liver to be held from the 28th to the 30th of April 2022 in Vienna, Austria.
This abstract focuses on the improvement of markers of cardiometabolic health in patients with NASH treated with lanifibranor versus placebo. NASH is a multisystemic disease and often occurs with other metabolic conditions, such as atherosclerosis and type-2 diabetes. In Inventiva’s Phase IIb clinical trial ‘NATIVE’, lanifibranor has demonstrated beneficial effects on liver histology, NASH resolution and fibrosis improvement in patients with NASH. Cardiovascular events are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with NASH. Based on the NATIVE data, the authors show that lanifibranor also has beneficial effects on a broad panel of markers of cardiometabolic health including dyslipidemia, hyperglycemia, insulin resistance, inflammation, blood pressure and hepatic steatosis measured by ultrasound guided Controlled Attenuation Parameter (CAP).
The details of the oral presentation are as follows:

Inventiva is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the research and development of oral small molecule therapies for the treatment of NASH and other diseases with significant unmet medical need. The Company benefits from a strong expertise and experience in the domain of compounds targeting nuclear receptors, transcription factors and epigenetic modulation. Inventiva’s lead product candidate, lanifibranor, is currently in a pivotal Phase III clinical trial, NATiV3, for the treatment of adult patients with NASH, a common and progressive chronic liver disease for which there are currently no approved therapies.
The Company has established a strategic collaboration with AbbVie in the area of autoimmune diseases that resulted in the discovery of the drug candidate cedirogant (ABBV-157), an oral RORg inverse agonist which is being evaluated in a Phase IIb clinical trial, led by AbbVie , in adult patients with moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis. Inventiva’s pipeline also includes odiparcil, a drug candidate for the treatment of adult mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) VI patients. As part of Inventiva’s decision to focus clinical efforts on the development of lanifibranor, it suspended clinical efforts relating to odiparcil and is reviewing available options with respect to its potential further development. Inventiva is in the process of selecting an oncology development candidate for its Hippo signaling pathway program.
The Company has a scientific team of approximately 80 people with deep expertise in the fields of biology, medicinal and computational chemistry, pharmacokinetics and pharmacology, and clinical development. It owns an extensive library of approximately 240,000 pharmacologically relevant molecules, approximately 60% of which are proprietary, as well as a wholly owned research and development facility.
Inventiva is a public company listed on compartment C of the regulated market of Euronext Paris (ticker: IVA – ISIN: FR0013233012) and on the Nasdaq Global Market in the United States (ticker: IVA). www.inventivapharma.com.
