Lexicon Presents Preclinical Data On LX2761, a New Clinical Candidate for Diabetes Designed to Reduce Glucose Absorption From Gastrointestinal Tract
Date:6/24/2013

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: LXRX), a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering breakthrough treatments for human disease, presented the first publication of data on LX2761 at the 73rd Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) in Chicago, on June 23, 2013.

David Powell, M.D., Lexicon's senior vice president of metabolism research, delivered an oral presentation titled "LX2761, an SGLT1 Inhibitor Restricted to the Intestine, Improves Glycemic Control in Mice."  Dr. Powell's presentation described the effects of LX2761 treatment on blood sugar control in mice with diabetes.

"LX2761 was designed to act locally in the gastrointestinal tract to reduce glucose absorption by inhibiting SGLT1 without any significant inhibition of SGLT2 in the kidney," said Alan Main, Ph.D., Lexicon's executive vice president of pharmaceutical research.  "This was accomplished through a dedicated medicinal chemistry effort to identify molecules with limited systemic exposure that showed efficacy in animal models of diabetes."

Consistent with design goals for an SGLT1 inhibitor without systemic exposure, LX2761 resulted in no urinary glucose excretion in mice while showing delayed intestinal glucose absorption and increased postprandial GLP-1 levels in mice, both alone and synergistically with the DPP-4 inhibitor sitagliptin. Notably, blood glucose excursions after an oral glucose challenge were still decreased 15 hours after oral LX2761 administration. Finally, LX2761 improved glycemic control in STZ-diabetic mice and in the KKAy mouse model of type 2 diabetes, as measured by reductions in hemoglobin A1c and oral glucose tol
