About InteKrin (

InteKrin Therapeutics is a privately-held clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel drugs for the treatment of diabetes, obesity and metabolic disease. The company's lead program is INT131, a late-stage non-TZD SPPARM (Selective Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor Modulator). INT131 is the result of an extensive molecular design effort to address the problematic safety concerns of TZD full PPAR agonists Actos(R) (pioglitazone) and Avandia(R) (rosiglitazone), which while efficacious are associated with weight gain, edema, congestive heart failure and bone fracture. Unlike TZDs, INT131 was specifically selected for its ability to separate powerful PPAR anti-diabetic efficacy from these serious TZD side effects.

INT131 is a next-generation insulin sensitizer that addresses insulin resistance, a key etiological feature in the onset and subsequent progression of type 2 diabetes. Treating and improving insulin sensitivity in diabetic patients by activating PPAR-gamma is an important therapeutic tool for physicians, providing powerful glucose control and durability of effect. As a SPPARM, INT131 selectively modulates PPAR-gamma, and is ideally positioned to safely reduce insulin resistance, addressing an important unmet medical need.

InteKrin expects to complete enrollment of its 360 patient, 24-week, placebo-controlled Phase 2b study of INT131 at four doses compared to 45mg Actos in Q1 09 and to have final results later this year.
