Spherix Announces Results from New Preclinical Studies Showing SPX-106T Produces Significant Reductions in Cholesterol, Fat Deposition and Body Weight
Date:10/24/2011

BETHESDA, Md., Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Spherix Incorporated (NASDAQ: SPEX) -- an innovator in biotechnology for therapy in diabetes, metabolic syndrome and atherosclerosis, and providers of technical and regulatory consulting services to food, supplement, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies -- today announced that SPX-106T (the combination of D-tagatose and SPX-106) reduced dyslipidemia in new studies of apolipoprotein E-deficient mice and Syrian Golden hamsters. This finding corroborates data obtained in LDL receptor-deficient mice (see Spherix press release of September 8, 2011). Additionally, a new study in rats demonstrates that D-tagatose inhibits fructose absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, providing further insight into the mechanism of action of SPX-106T.

"Successful results in additional animal models increases our confidence going into human clinical trials with SPX-106T next spring," noted Dr. Claire Kruger, CEO of Spherix.

In a poster at the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) National Meeting, Spherix summarizes results obtained with SPX-106T in two strains of genetically engineered mice prone to dyslipidemia. SPX-106T significantly reduced VLDL and LDL cholesterol in LDL receptor-deficient mice fed normal chow. In apolipoprotein E-deficient mice fed a Western (high fat/high carbohydrate) diet, SPX-106T significantly reduced serum cholesterol by 30% (-307 mg/dl; p<0.05), prevented body weight gain (p<0.05), and significantly reduced the amount of subcutaneous, retroperitoneal, and epididymal fat (77, 90, 85% reductions, respectively, p<0.01) (see photo). SPX-106T did not affect the weight of other organs (heart, spleen, etc.). A recent range-finding dose study in hamsters
