New Report Released in North Carolina Shows Record Number of Medicines in Development to Treat Diabetes
Date:5/19/2009

RALEIGH, N.C., May 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) unveiled a new report today on medicines in the research pipeline for diabetes. The report shows that America's pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies are testing a record 183 new diabetes medicines. The medicines listed in the report are being tested in human clinical trials or are awaiting approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The report was released at a press conference in North Carolina featuring actor Jerry Mathers, who suffers from diabetes and works to raise awareness of this devastating chronic disease. An American icon, he is best known for his portrayal of "Beaver" in the television classic, "Leave It To Beaver." Currently shown on TV Land and in countries throughout the world, "Leave It To Beaver" has made Jerry Mathers one of the most well-known actors in television history.

"We released this report in North Carolina because of the alarming rise in the number of new cases of diabetes in the state. Unfortunately, these rising numbers reflect what is occurring nationwide," said PhRMA Senior Vice President Ken Johnson, who discussed the findings of the report at the SAS Institute located in the Research Triangle Park Corridor. SAS has a successful diabetes management program for all of its employees.

"Diabetes is a major health problem in North Carolina, where an estimated 600,000 people suffer from the disease," Johnson added. "A huge contributing factor is lifestyle. Obesity is becoming to diabetes what smoking is to lung cancer."

Combined with those who have pre-diabetes or undiagnosed diabetes, the number of people with the disease in the state reaches one million. African-Americans have the highest rate (13.4 percent) of those in North Carolina suffering from the disease.
