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

mpounds under development that will improve the quality of life for people living with diabetes and help to prevent the devastating long-term consequences of this disease."

New medicines in the development stage include the following:

  • A first-in-class medicine that significantly improves long-term blood sugar control and targets the dysfunction of pancreas cells, a dysfunction that causes high sugar level in type 2 diabetes.
  • A medicine that addresses the underlying cause of type 2 diabetes by modulating genes responsible for insulin sensitization.
  • A medicine that stimulates the release of insulin only when glucose levels become too high and by suppressing appetite in patients with type 2 diabetes.

"The work being done by the pharmaceutical industry to develop new treatments for diabetes and other chronic diseases is extremely important because chronic disease is responsible for seven of 10 American deaths and 75 percent of the nation's $2.2 trillion health care bill," said APhA Foundation CEO William M. Ellis. "The American Pharmacists Association Foundation is committed to helping patients gain the full benefit of their treatments, while reducing overall health care costs as we did during The Diabetes Ten City Challenge." The Diabetes Ten City Challenge is a diabetes management program sponsored by the APhA Foundation with support from GlaxoSmithKline (www.diabetestencitychallenge.com).

Tauzin notes that while researchers are making exciting progress in the search for new cures and treatments for diabetes, these efforts are wasted if the medicines developed aren't accessible to patients who need them.

Help is available to patients in need through the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (ww
