Amylin Pharmaceuticals to Present Novel Data on Promising Obesity Pipeline at 2008 Annual Scientific Meeting of The Obesity Society
Date:10/1/2008

Obesity is a chronic disease that affects millions of people and is linked to increased health risk of several medical conditions including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, osteoarthritis, sleep disorders and several types of cancers. According to The Obesity Society, obesity is the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States. The total direct and indirect cost attributed to overweight and obesity health issues exceeds $100 billion in the United States each year. Obesity is also rapidly becoming a major health problem in all industrialized nations and many developing countries.

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.

Since launch, over 110,000 patients have been treated with SYMLIN. To date, ap
