Date:11/9/2011

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Nov. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: LXRX), a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering breakthrough treatments for human disease, announced today that Dr. Roy Fleischmann from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center will be presenting data from Lexicon's LX2931 Phase 2 proof-of-concept clinical trial at the annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois.  LX2931 is an orally-administered small molecule designed to inhibit sphingosine-1-phosphate lyase (S1P), an enzyme in a pathway known to be important in regulating the immune response.  

Results from the Phase 2a study demonstrated a favorable safety profile at all doses tested and suggested that patients with rheumatoid arthritis treated with 150 mg of LX2931 once daily showed improvement in the primary efficacy endpoint of the study, the percentage of patients achieving an American College of Rheumatology 20 (ACR20) response at week 12.
