Takeda to Revise Timing of Alogliptin and Alogliptin/ACTOS MAA Filings in Europe
Date:6/3/2009

OSAKA, Japan, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited ("Takeda") announced today that it has reviewed the development strategy for the Marketing Authorization Applications (MAAs) for its investigational compounds, alogliptin and alogliptin/ACTOS (generic name: pioglitazone HCl), in Europe, and accordingly, has initiated an additional long-term clinical study for alogliptin.

The additional two-year study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of alogliptin compared to glipizide when used in combination with metformin in targeted number of almost 2,500 subjects with type 2 diabetes, whose blood sugar level is inadequately controlled with metformin.

With the results of this additional study, Takeda expects that the MAA submissions will be made with a more robust data set necessary to ensure its approval, and as a result, the target timing of MAAs is revised from the original plan of mid-2009 to 2012.

Alogliptin, which was discovered by Takeda's wholly owned U.S. subsidiary, Takeda San Diego, Inc. is a dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-4) inhibitor for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. By providing complementary mechanisms of action, alogliptin/ACTOS targets the core defects of type 2 diabetes - insulin resistance (when the body does not efficiently use the insulin it produces) and insulin deficiency (when the body does not produce enough insulin).
