JDRF Announces Two Partnerships to Develop Stable, Pumpable Glucagon to Support Advanced Generation Artificial Pancreas Systems
Date:6/20/2013

f blood-glucose control, and previous studies supported by JDRF and others have shown that the addition of glucagon to insulin treatment in T1D reduces the frequency of hypoglycemia.

One major hurdle in developing an advanced generation, multi-hormonal artificial pancreas system is that commercially available glucagon does not remain stable; the powder and solution mix into a short-lived liquid form not suitable for long-term use in a pump. Xeris and LPI will develop two different approaches to making glucagon usable for infusion pumps.

Xeris—a specialty pharmaceutical company based in Austin, TX, focused on developing injectable therapeutics—will study its stable, room-temperature, and non-aqueous injectable glucagon (G-Pump™ Glucagon) to treat hypoglycemia. Clinical studies will take place at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) with two years of milestone-based funding from JDRF.

"Our partnership with JDRF enables us to move forward in pursuing an improved approach to controlling blood glucose levels  by enabling a fully closed loop system that addresses  both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia," said Steve Prestrelski, Ph.D., chief executive officer at Xeris. "We look forward to working with JDRF to make this a successful program."

LPI—a drug formulation development company based in San Diego, CA—will use a unique, proprietary, solvent-free, glucagon nanoemulsion (Nano-G) to solubilize and stabilize the molecule, such that it is not vulnerable to degradation and remains biologically active. With milestone-based funding from JDRF for one year, LPI plans to begin clinical testing in the United States in 2014.

"LATITUDE is truly honored to partner with a prestigious and leading organization such as JDRF," said Andrew Chen, Ph.D., LPI's president. "Thi
