JDRF and Lilly Partner to Fund Research to Identify Beta Cell Biomarkers
Date:11/14/2007

l, the development of a range of biomarkers for both diabetes itself and its various complications would fill a major gap in science leading to a cure," said Arnold W. Donald, President and Chief Executive Officer of JDRF. "As the field of diabetes research moves from purely discovery research to the development of therapeutic cures and treatments, biomarkers will play a key role in increasing the pace of progress, and providing real benefits to people with diabetes. Lilly's grant to support beta cell mass and function research will play an important role in these efforts."

According to Dr. Paul Burn, Senior Vice President, Research, at JDRF, there are few current biomarkers for type 1 diabetes research and treatment. Biomarkers would be a powerful research tool in indicating the onset, status, and stage of diabetes; in predicting and monitoring a patient's clinical response to treatments developed as part of research funded by JDRF, Lilly, and others; and in accelerating the development of therapeutics by enabling researchers to rapidly assess the clinical outcomes of promising drug candidates.

"Biomarkers and the comprehensive information they can provide researchers are imperative to the progress of diabetes research," Dr. Burn said. "This project can rapidly advance the pace of scientific discovery and therapeutic developments for type 1 diabetes patients along multiple research pathways to finding a cure. Lilly is making a tremendous contribution to science that could, in turn, significantly improve the lives and outlooks of millions."

"Lilly's highest mission is to improve the lives of the people we serve -- and there is no group of patients with whom we have a longer and deeper relationship than people with diabetes," said Dr. John C. Lechleiter, Lilly's President and Chief Operating Officer. "Until there's a cure for diabetes, it's imperative that we continue searching for ways to improve treatment and solutions for managing this condition
