Novel Diabetes Drug Discovery Has Potential to Reverse Disease
Date:1/27/2009

ion as a therapeutic approach. Pancreatic islets contain four primary cell types and are responsible for producing insulin, amylin, glucagon and other hormones critical to maintaining normal glucose regulation. Current diabetes therapies, including insulin, help to control the disease but do not restore new islets. HIP addresses the underlying mechanism of the pathology of diabetes and represents a potentially curative approach to both, type 1 and 2 diabetes. If successful in human clinical trials, HIP-induced restoration of islet function has the potential to become a first-line treatment approach for diabetes and pre- diabetes.

About HIP

Human proIslet Peptide (HIP) is a 14-amino acid, stabilized human peptide that stimulates the signal pathways that induce new islet formation in the pancreas, without the use of stem cells. HIP creates new insulin-producing beta cells by generating new islets that contain alpha, beta, gamma and delta cells, all of which are necessary to regulate glucose metabolism. The core patent for the HIP technology was issued in July 2008.
