Essentialis Strengthens Patent Protection of Its Novel ATP-Sensitive Potassium Channel Opener Portfolio
Date:10/11/2010

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Essentialis, Inc. announced today that the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. Patent No. 7,799,777 entitled Salts of potassium ATP channel openers and uses thereof. The patent claims a novel composition of a polymorph of diazoxide choline, the active ingredient in the Essentialis lead product, DCCR.  Essentialis has successfully completed phase 2b clinical trials with DCCR, showing a highly significant triglyceride reduction in dyslipidemic patients.

DCCR reduces the production of triglyceride rich lipoprotein particles before they can accumulate and contribute to the progression of pancreatitis and cardiovascular disease. Currently available dsylipidemia treatments (such as fibrates and omega 3 fatty acid products) work primarily by increasing clearance of triglycerides from the blood stream.

"DCCR's unique mechanism of action will allow for additive efficacy with statins and other lipid-lowering agents to better achieve desired lipid targets," said Neil Cowen, Ph.D., Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer for Essentialis.  "Once a patient maximizes their benefit from one agent, additiona
