INCORPORATION BY REFERENCE
This report on Form 6-K shall be deemed to be incorporated by reference into the registration statements on Form S-8 (Registration Numbers 333-228576, 333-203040, 333-210810, 333-211512, 333-213412, 333-214843, 333-216883, 333-254101, and 333-261550) and Form F-3 (Registration Numbers 333-209336, 333-211511, 333-216882, 333-223134, 333-225284, and 333-256571) of Ascendis Pharma A/S (the Company) (including any prospectuses forming a part of such registration statements) and to be a part thereof from the date on which this report is filed, to the extent not superseded by documents or reports subsequently filed or furnished.
On May 23, 2022, the Company announced that results from its associate VISEN Pharmaceuticals Phase 3 trial of once-weekly TransCon hGH in children with growth hormone deficiency in China demonstrated results that were consistent with the Companys earlier multi-national Phase 3 trial. VISEN Pharmaceuticals Phase 3 trial achieved its primary endpoint, with pediatric growth hormone deficiency patients treated with once-weekly TransCon hGH demonstrating greater annualized height velocity at 52-weeks (p=0.0010) compared to patients treated with daily growth hormone. In both the Companys and Visen Pharmaceuticals Phase 3 trials, TransCon hGH data demonstrated statistical non-inferiority and superiority on the primary endpoint with comparable safety and tolerability to daily growth hormone.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
