Amylin Pharmaceuticals Highlights New Data Supporting Therapeutic Potential of Obesity Pipeline at Obesity 2009
Date:10/19/2009

r BMI. Overweight is defined as BMI 25 to 29.9 kg/m2, Obesity Class I is BMI 30 to 34.9 kg/m2, Obesity Class II is BMI 35 to 39.9 kg/m2 and Obesity Class III is BMI 40 kg/m2 or more. Of the over 100 million overweight and obese individuals in the United States, over 80 million have a BMI less than 35 kg/m2. It is estimated that approximately two-thirds of patients with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese, with a BMI less than 35 kg/m2. In addition, approximately three-quarters of individuals with BMI less than 35 kg/m2 without type 2 diabetes have dyslipidemia and/or hypertension.

Amylin's Approach to Obesity Research and Development

Currently, physicians and patients seeking prescription medications for weight loss have limited therapeutic options. New scientific advances have established the key role of neurohormones in the physiological regulation of appetite and energy balance, as well as the importance of studying the interaction among these hormones (within the brain) to uncover their full therapeutic potential. Amylin scientists discovered that combination treatment with neurohormones, such as amylin and leptin, can produce additive and synergistic weight loss in animal models. These findings formed the basis for Amylin's innovative integrated neurohormonal approach to the development of obesity treatments.

About Pramlintide/Metreleptin Combination Treatment

Pramlintide acetate is a synthetic analog of the natural hormone amylin, a neurohormone secreted by the pancreas that is known to play a role in the regulation of appetite, food intake and postprandial glucose concentrations. To date, approximately 8,000 individuals have received pramlintide in clinical trials, including more than 950 in obesity studies. Metreleptin (methionyl recombinant leptin; r-metHuLeptin) is an analog of human leptin, a neurohormone secreted by fat cells that plays a fundamental role in the regulation of energy metabol
