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

ts in glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity
  • Significant reduction in plasma glucose levels in extremely hyperglycemic animals
  • No harmful effects such as low blood glucose levels (hypoglycemia) or detrimental changes in kidney function with 3-6 month exposure in normal or diabetic animals.

  • "Our preclinical research during the past year on ISIS-SGLT2Rx extends previous findings and demonstrates potent and sustained reduction of blood glucose levels with good safety and tolerability in multiple animal models including non-human primates. Collectively, the data suggest that ISIS-SGLT2Rx could result in sustained and significant reductions in blood glucose levels in diabetic patients and could be used as an infrequent injectable drug to help control blood sugar. This year, we have initiated our first clinical trial on ISIS-SGLT2Rx that will not only assess the safety of the drug in healthy volunteers, but may also provide us with information on the activity of the drug by measuring the effect of ISIS-SGLT2Rx on glucose excretion in urine. We are excited to continue to move this drug forward through development," said Sanjay Bhanot, M.D., Ph.D., Vice President of Metabolic Disorders and Head of Translational Medicine at Isis Pharmaceuticals.

    Isis scientists presented new data demonstrating that antisense reduction of retinal binding protein 4 (RBP4) caused significant improvements in insulin sensitivity with associated improvement in cardiac glucose metabolism. These data suggest that RBP4 could be an important new therapeutic target for type 2 diabetes and associated cardiac disease.

    In addition to new data demonstrating the ability of antisense drugs to significantly improve insulin sensitivity in diabetic animals, Isis also presented data from its obesity drug discovery program. In an oral presentation, Isis reported that antisense reduct
