Inventiva is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the research and development of oral small molecule therapies for the treatment of patients with NASH, mucopolysaccharidoses (“MPS”) 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 is currently advancing one clinical candidate, has a pipeline of two preclinical programs and continues to explore other development opportunities to add to its pipeline.
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.
Inventiva’s pipeline also includes odiparcil, a drug candidate for the treatment of adult MPS VI patients. As part of Inventiva’s decision to focus clinical efforts on the development of lanifibranor, it suspended its clinical efforts relating to odiparcil and is reviewing available options with respect to its potential further development. Inventiva is also in the process of selecting an oncology development candidate for its Hippo signaling pathway program.
The Company has a scientific team of approximately 90 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.

Status for Selskabets tilgodehavende hos Portinho S.A.28.11.2023 18:30:48 CET | pressemeddelelse
28. november 2023 Meddelelse nr. 46 Status for Selskabets tilgodehavende hos Portinho S.A. Selskabets bestyrelse, valgt ind i forbindelse med at Selskabet blev omdannet til en lægemiddelvirksomhed, og direktion har i længere tid, haft en meget tæt dialog med ledelsen i Portinho S.A. om indfrielse af Selskabets tilgodehavende hos Portinho S.A., der stammer fra tiden før Selskabet blev omdannet til en lægemiddelvirksomhed. Selskabets bestyrelse og direktion har sideløbende allokeret betydelige ressourcer til at afdække, hvilke dispositioner der fra den tidligere ledelse oprindeligt førte til etableringen af tilgodehavendet samt rationalet for de efterfølgende dispositioner af den tidligere ledelse, der har indvirket på tilgodehavendets vandring. Dette arbejde pågår forsat med blandt andet bistand fra både dansk og portugisisk juridisk rådgiver. Omfanget og vurderingen af de foreløbige resultater af undersøgelsesarbejdet har ført til, at det ikke længere er Selskabets vurdering, at tilgod
