LOS ALTOS, Calif., June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- InteKrin Therapeutics Inc. announced today it will present 6 month Phase 2b clinical data for edema in diabetic patients showing differentiation for INT131, a Selective PPAR-gamma Modulator (SPPARM), from Actos® pioglitazone, at the American Diabetes Association annual meeting in Orlando, FL, Monday, June 28, 2010 at 2:45 pm EDT during the "Update on BARI 2D --Treatment of Insulin Resistance" session.
Dr. Alex DePaoli, Acting Chief Medical Officer of InteKrin Therapeutics, will present "INT131 Besylate, a Selective PPAR-gamma Modulator (SPPARM), Improved Glycemic Control in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes without Causing the Edema Seen with Pioglitazone."
INT131 is a next-generation insulin sensitizer that addresses insulin resistance, a key etiological feature in the onset and subsequent progression of Type 2 Diabetes. As a selective PPAR-gamma modulator (SPPARM), INT131 has been designed to provide potent glucose lowering and durability of effect without the recognized side effects of the currently available insulin sensitizers which, unlike INT131, are full PPAR-gamma agonists. InteKrin has completed an End-Of-Phase 2 meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for INT131 and is moving the program into Phase 3 development.
