Date:5/28/2009

LOS ALTOS, Calif., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- InteKrin Therapeutics, Inc. announced today it will present Phase 2a clinical data for INT131, a Selective PPAR Modulator (SPPARM), at the American Diabetes Association annual meeting in New Orleans Saturday, June 6, 2009 during the "Novel Diabetes Therapies in Development in Humans" session at 4:00 pm CDT.

Dr. Alex DePaoli, Chief Medical Officer of InteKrin Therapeutics, will provide a summary of the latest clinical data supporting the design of INT131 to safely and effectively address insulin resistance in a presentation entitled "INT131: Significantly Lowers Glucose Without Typical Thiazolidinedione (TZD) Side Effects in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes."

About INT131

INT131 is a next-generation insulin sensitizer currently in Phase 2b testing that addresses insulin resistance, a key etiological feature in the onset and subsequent progression of type 2 diabetes. Purposefully designed as a SPPARM, INT131 selectively modulates PPAR-gamma, thereby allowing the retention of the clinically proven anti-diabetic efficacy of PPAR gamma activation, while mitigating or eliminating the well recognized side effects of TZD full PPAR gamma agonists rosiglitazone and pioglitazone (Avandia(R) and Actos(R) respectively).
