inal tract, and in preclinical studies the GDIR stimulates the release of GLP and GIP, two incretins that play an important role in insulin regulation and glucose homeostasis.

About Diabetes

Diabetes is a major worldwide disease. The International Diabetes Federation estimates that in 2007 there were 246 million adults with diabetes worldwide, an increase of over 20% since 2003. Approximately 90%, or 221 million, of diabetics worldwide suffer from type 2 diabetes, the adult-onset form of the disease. Type 2 diabetes is characterized by inadequate response to insulin or inadequate secretion of insulin as blood glucose levels rise. Therapies for type 2 diabetes are directed toward correcting the body's inadequate response with oral or injectable medications, or directly modifying insulin levels by injection of insulin or insulin analogs.

The worldwide market for diabetes medications exceeded $12 billion in 2005, of which oral drugs exceeded $7 billion. Current oral medications for type 2 diabetes have limitations including side effects and safety issues prompting continued efforts to develop therapeutics to improve the treatment of diabetes.
