Elcelyx Therapeutics Reports Positive Data for NewMet in Type 2 Diabetes at 2013 American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions
Date:6/22/2013

SAN DIEGO, June 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Elcelyx Therapeutics announced today that clinical study results confirm that the primary site of action of Type 2 diabetes medicine metformin is in the lower bowel rather than in the circulation. The study revealed that contrary to popular belief, greater exposure in the plasma of metformin does not improve efficacy of the most prescribed diabetes medicine in the world. Elcelyx's Phase 2a study demonstrated this by comparing the glucose-lowering effects of NewMet™, the company's proprietary delayed-release formulation of metformin, to generic metformin in patients with Type 2 diabetes.

NewMet is formulated to target the entire dose to the lower bowel and limit absorption into the blood. In the crossover study, 5-day treatment with NewMet had similar fasting and post-meal glucose reductions from baseline as 5-day treatment with generic metformin despite greater than 45% reductions in metformin plasma concentrations. In addition, NewMet had less gastrointestinal (GI) side effects than generic metformin. Results of the clinical trial will be presented at ADA on Sunday by Dr. Ralph DeFronzo, Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Diabetes Division at the University of Texas Health Science Center and the Audie L. Murphy Memorial Veterans Administration Hospital in San Antonio, Texas.

The significantly lower metformin plasma concentration observed with NewMet suggests that it might be safely used by patients with moderate and severe renal impairment, a population of patients that is unable to use currently available metformin formulations due to the risk of lactic acidosis caused by too much metformin in the blood.
