bition of IL-1Beta signaling has been demonstrated to be effective in treating a variety of diseases including arthritis and diabetic mellitus (DM). The active ingredient of AC-201 has been approved for treating patients with chronic rheumatic diseases in France and subsequently in other EU and Middle Eastern countries such as Spain and Italy since mid-1990.

About Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes is one of the most common metabolic diseases worldwide. According to a June 2011 Lancet publication by Danaei and colleagues, the number of adults diagnosed with diabetes worldwide in 2008 was a staggering 347 million and this number is expected to rise to 472 million by 2030. World Health Organization (WHO) has defined type 2 diabetes as the result of the body's ineffective use of insulin. Type 2 diabetes comprises 90% of people with diabetes around the world, and is largely caused by excess body weight and physical inactivity. The American Diabetes Association estimated that in 2012, the total cost associated with diabetes in US was US$245 billion of which US$176 billion was direct medical cost while US$69 billion was loss due to reduced productivity.
