ORAL PRESENTATION OF PHASE I CLINICAL TRIAL OF AT247, A NOVEL ULTRA RAPID ACTING INSULIN
CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom, Sept. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arecor Limited ("Arecor" or "the Company"), the biopharmaceutical company advancing today's therapies to enable healthier lives, today announces that its abstract titled 'Phase I study investigating the PD, PK and safety of AT247 in comparison to insulin aspart, NovoRapid®, and fast insulin aspart, Fiasp®, has been selected for oral presentation at the upcoming European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) virtual meeting which will be held from 21-25 September 2020. Abstract #55 is available online.
Dr Eva Svehlikova, Medical Director of the Clinical Trials Unit at the Medical University of Graz and Investigator for the ARE-247-101 study, said:
"AT247 has clearly demonstrated faster insulin absorption with an accelerated Pharmacokinetic (PK) and Pharmacodynamic (PD) profile compared to NovoRapid® and Fiasp®. AT247 has the potential to significantly improve postprandial glucose control and flexibility of insulin dosing. Potential clinical benefits for avoiding hypo and hyperglycaemia need to be confirmed in further clinical studies. This early evidence suggests that AT247 may facilitate a fully closed loop artificial pancreas, a potentially life changing treatment option for people living with diabetes."
