Metabolic Solutions Development Company announces publication of data describing potential for new drugs to maintain pancreatic beta-cells in treating diabetes
Date:5/29/2013

KALAMAZOO, Mich., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Metabolic Solutions Development Company, LLC (MSDC) announced today the publication of data in a recent issue of the scientific journal PLOS ONE (http://dx.plos.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0062012) on the effects of a new drug for type 2 diabetes in restoring insulin sensitivity and insulin content in human beta- (b-) cells.  Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis, led by Michael McDaniel , PhD, and Nidhi Rohatgi , PhD, found this next generation insulin sensitizer may provide physicians with a new tool for the treatment of diabetes that relieves insulin resistance in human islets, thereby preserving the survival and function of human beta-cells.

Beta-cells are produced in regions in the pancreas referred to as "islets". Their function is to produce, store and release insulin, a hormone essential to the efficient utilization of glucose, a type of sugar that comes from carbohydrate foods and that is the body's main source of energy.[1] In patients with type 2 diabetes, beta-cell death is increased and the number of beta-cells is reduced. In addition, their function may have declined by as much as 80 percent by the time treatment is initiated,[2] resulting in lower insulin levels and higher glucose levels.  In this laboratory study, researchers found that direct treatment of cultured human islets with a new drug for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, MSDC-0160, produced a unique modulation of nutrient sensors that restored normal cell communication mechanisms and enabled the survival and preservation of human beta-cell function, including insulin content.

Diabetes is an undertreated global epidemic affecting an estimated 340 million people worldwide, with a rapidly increasing incid
