Theravance Biopharma and Mylan to Report New Data from Phase 3 Studies of Yupelri (revefenacin) in Oral Presentation at European Respiratory Society International Congress 2018

DUBLIN and HERTFORDSHIRE, England and PITTSBURGH, Sept. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Theravance Biopharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: TBPH) (“Theravance Biopharma”) and Mylan N.V. (NASDAQ: MYL) (“Mylan”) today announced that new data from the Phase 3 Yupelri™ (revefenacin) inhalation solution clinical program will be featured in an oral presentation at the European Respiratory Society (ERS) International Congress 2018, being held in Paris, France on September 15-19, 2018. The presented data will highlight chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbation rates observed in the Phase 3 clinical program of Yupelri in patients with moderate to very severe COPD.

Yupelri is an investigational long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA) currently under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of COPD. The Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) date for Yupelri is November 13, 2018. If approved, Yupelri would be the first once-daily, long-acting nebulized bronchodilator for the treatment of COPD. Yupelri is designed to be compatible with any standard jet nebulizer.

About Yupelri

Yupelri (revefenacin) inhalation solution is a novel investigational once-daily nebulized LAMA under FDA review for the treatment of moderate to very severe COPD. Market research by Theravance Biopharma indicates approximately 9% of the treated COPD patients in the U.S. use nebulizers for ongoing maintenance therapy.1 LAMAs are a cornerstone of maintenance therapy for COPD and, if approved, Yupelri would be the only once-daily, long-acting single-agent product for COPD patients who require, or prefer, nebulized therapy. Yupelri’s stability in both metered dose inhaler and dry powder device formulations, suggest that this LAMA could also serve as a foundation for novel handheld combination products.

About Theravance Biopharma

Theravance Biopharma, Inc. (“Theravance Biopharma”) is a diversified biopharmaceutical company with the core purpose of creating medicines that help improve the lives of patients suffering from serious illness.

In our relentless pursuit of this objective, we strive to apply insight and innovation at each stage of our business, including research, development and commercialization, and utilize both internal capabilities and those of partners around the world. Our research efforts are focused in the areas of inflammation and immunology. Our research goal is to design localized medicines that target diseased tissues, without systemic exposure, in order to maximize patient benefit and minimize risk. These efforts leverage years of experience in developing localized medicines for the lungs to treat respiratory disease. The first potential medicine to emerge from our research focus on immunology and localized treatments is an oral, intestinally restricted pan-Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor, currently in development to treat a range of inflammatory intestinal diseases. Our pipeline of internally discovered product candidates will continue to evolve with the goal of creating transformational medicines to address the significant needs of patients.

In addition, we have an economic interest in future payments that may be made by Glaxo Group or one of its affiliates (GSK) pursuant to its agreements with Innoviva, Inc. relating to certain programs, including Trelegy Ellipta.
