GOTHENBURG, Sweden, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Albireo AB (Gothenburg, Sweden; "Albireo"), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in gastroenterology, today announced that the European Medicines Agency Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products (COMP) has issued a positive opinion on an application for orphan medicinal product status for the company's lead hepatology candidate, A4250, for the treatment of:
