Isis Highlights New Data on Antisense Drugs to Treat Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity at ADA Scientific Sessions
Date:6/9/2009

NEW ORLEANS and CARLSBAD, Calif., June 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Isis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISIS) announced today that Isis' antisense drugs were highlighted with eight presentations (including three oral talks and two late-breaking posters) during the American Diabetes Association's (ADA) 69th Scientific Sessions in New Orleans by Isis and its collaborators. Isis' scientists presented new preclinical data on ISIS-SGLT2Rx showing a robust and sustained reduction in sodium dependent glucose co-transporter type 2 (SGLT2) levels that resulted in a significant reduction in blood glucose levels in multiple animal species. Isis and its collaborators also presented data on a number of other promising new targets demonstrating that reducing levels of these targets with antisense drugs can significantly lower blood glucose levels and increase the body's sensitivity to insulin. Additionally, data was presented from Isis' anti-obesity drug discovery program showing antisense drugs reduced fat mass and body weight in animals by reducing levels of targets in peripheral tissues such as liver and fat without affecting the central nervous system, further validating Isis' anti-obesity therapeutic strategy.

In the oral presentation titled "ISIS 388626, an SGLT2 Antisense Drug, Causes Robust and Sustained Glucosuria in Multiple Species and is Safe and Well-Tolerated," Dr. Sanjay Bhanot highlighted data that demonstrated that antisense reduction of SGLT2, a key transporter involved in glucose re-absorption in the kidney, produced the following results in preclinical models:

  • Dose-dependent reduction in kidney levels of SGLT2 with >75% reduction at the highest dose accompanied by a significant increase (>100-fold) in glucose excretion in the urine in multiple species including monkeys
  • Secondary improvemen
