About ITCA 650

ITCA 650 therapy for type 2 diabetes consists of DUROS continuous subcutaneous delivery of exenatide. The DUROS delivery technology comprises the DUROS device, a matchstick-size, miniature osmotic pump that is inserted subcutaneously to provide continuous and consistent drug therapy. Intarcia's proprietary formulation technology that maintains stability of therapeutic proteins and peptides at human body temperatures for extended periods of time.

The DUROS technology can deliver up to a full year of therapy from a single ITCA 650 insertion. Unlike other extended delivery technologies, such as polymers or albumin fusions, DUROS delivery allows for steady state drug delivery upon placement and near immediate cessation of therapy, if required. ITCA 650 is an investigational new drug and is not currently approved by any regulatory authority. Exenatide, the active agent in ITCA 650, has been approved in the U.S., Europe and many other markets and is currently marketed as a twice-daily self-injection therapy for type 2 diabetes.  Intarcia's robust IP portfolio protects ITCA 650 through 2027.

About Type 2 Diabetes

According to a June 2011 Lancet publication by Danaei and colleagues, an estimated 347 million adults worldwide had diabetes in 2008 and that number is expected to rise to 472 million by 2030.  A significant portion of cases results from striking increases in countries like China and India, accounting for 138 million cases, the USA and Russia, accounting for 36 million cases, and an additional 42 million cases in Brazil, Pakistan, Indonesia, Japan and Mexico.  Pre-diabetes, or impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), a condition that often leads to diabetes, affects a population that is roughly double that of the current diabetes population.  The World Health Organization estimates deaths resulting from diabetes will double between 2005 and 2030 and estimates the global cost of diabetes to have exceeded $400 billion in 2010.  United Healthcare expects spending on diabetes and diabetes-related care to reach $500 billion by 2020 in the US alone and projects the cumulative cost of diabetes care to reach $3.4 trillion over the next decade.
