NuMe Health Completes $1.5 Million Series A Financing To Advance Its First Cobiotic™ Aimed At Helping Prediabetics Maintain Healthy Blood Glucose Levels
Date:5/16/2012

ol and Prevention, people with prediabetes have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.  NM504 supports the activity of bacteria that inhibit appetite signals and stimulate satiety signals, and it also inhibits bacteria that convert undigested nutrients into extra calories.  In addition, NM504 shifts the bacteria environment of the microbiome to decrease the absorption of sugar and cholesterol. 

"We welcomed the chance to lead the Series A financing due to the opportunity we see for NuMe Health to be a leader in applying the emerging knowledge of the human microbiome to prediabetes and related health conditions," said  Ross P. Barrett, managing partner of BVM Capital and a director of NuMe Health.  "We also want to acknowledge the support from BioDistrict New Orleans, the New Orleans BioInnovation Center, Inc., Tulane University and the broader pro-business policy initiatives of the Louisiana Department of Economic Development, which have been instrumental in helping to close this round."

The NM504 clinical trial is a placebo-controlled, double-blinded, proof-of-concept study that will test the ability of two different doses of NM504 to alter the human microbiome and support healthy insulin sensitivity and fasting blood glucose levels in prediabetic individuals.  It will assess blood biomarkers associated with GI and metabolic health, relevant safety parameters and GI bacterial changes consistent with the expected mechanism of action of NM504.

Cobiotics are combinations of naturally occurring food components that are not digested but that act to control GI bacteria in beneficial ways.  NuMe's initial cobiotic products are derived from bioactive plant ingredients that promote the growth of specific bacteria with the potential to positively affect metabolic conditions.  NuMe's cobiotic products are evidence-based and are being developed using rigorous scientific methods a
