Date:12/7/2012

CARLSBAD, Calif., Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Isis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISIS) announced today positive results from Phase 1 studies of three drugs, ISIS-PTP1BRx, ISIS-GCGRRx and ISIS-GCCRRx, in development to treat metabolic disorders, including type 2 diabetes.  In all three Phase 1 studies, the drugs were safe and well tolerated with early encouraging data that supports the unique mechanism of each drug.
