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

warned that diabetes in the state has reached epidemic rates. Diabetes prevalence has increased by 102 percent over the last decade, from 4.5 percent of the state's population in 1995 to 9.1 percent in 2006.

There also has been an alarming new trend among children who are developing type 2 diabetes, related to an increase in childhood obesity.

New cases of it have risen more than 90 percent among adults over the last 10 years, and since 1987 the number of deaths from the disease has risen by 45 percent, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Diabetes Association.

"The diabetes medicines now in the research pipeline are contributing substantially to the incredible progress made in the last five years by biopharmaceutical companies in developing new and more effective diabetes treatments," says Billy Tauzin, PhRMA President and CEO. "The nation must continue its strong commitment to the cutting-edge pharmaceutical research that enables today's diabetes patients to manage their disease and lead productive lives."

Diabetes is a chronic disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin, a hormone needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery.

"Given limitations associated with currently available medications, now is an exciting time to be in drug discovery and development for the diabetes field," said Dr. Barry Goldstein, Vice President of Clinical Research for Diabetes and Obesity, Merck & Co., Inc. "There are many innovative, promising new co
