Genaera Presents Preclinical Data on Trodusquemine (MSI-1436) for,the Treatment of Obesity at the American Diabetes Association 67th,Scientific Session

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., June 25, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Genaera Corporation today announced that data from a preclinical study of trodusquemine (MSI-1436) for the treatment of obesity were presented during the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 67th Scientific Sessions, June 22-25 in Chicago, IL. Dr. Kristen Lantz, Genaera research scientist and lead author of Abstract #1801-P, presented, "Trodusquemine is a Multiple Pathway Inhibitor that Causes Differential Weight Loss, Reduces Adiposity, and Improves Plasma Insulin and Leptin Levels."

The poster presentation summarizes results from preclinical studies demonstrating that trodusquemine suppresses appetite and causes differential weight loss in a mouse model of diet-induced obesity (DIO). Data presented also indicates that trodusquemine selectively inhibits PTP-1B, an enzyme central to controlling the function of both the leptin and insulin pathways. In addition, trodusquemine was shown to reduce the size of adipocytes, reduce body fat with no reduction of lean mass, and improve glucose tolerance via inhibition of a unique combination of signaling pathways in the DIO mouse model, making trodusquemine a promising therapeutic candidate.

"This preclinical data supports our current Phase 1 clinical strategy for trodusquemine as a treatment for obesity and further reinforces our belief that trodusquemine may also be successful in the treatment of type 2 diabetes," stated Jack Armstrong, President and Chief Executive Officer of Genaera. "We believe that, if successful, trodusquemine could be an effective monotherapy able to treat both obesity and type 2 diabetes, and could revolutionize the way these metabolic diseases are treated."

Scientists from Genaera will be available for discussion of the poster today from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Central Time in the Poster Hall at the conference.
