The BLA submission was based on data from the Phase 3 global, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trial of sebelipase alfa in children and adults with LAL Deficiency and the Phase 2/3 trial of sebelipase alfa in infants with LAL Deficiency. The Phase 3 trial met the primary endpoint of ALT normalization and demonstrated significant improvements in multiple disease-related parameters of dyslipidemia and liver injury compared with placebo. In the Phase 2/3 trial, six infants met the primary endpoint of survival at 12 months of age and five infants continue on treatment with sebelipase alfa.
