    Zealand Pharma announces publication of Phase 3 trial evaluating efficacy and safety of dasiglucagon for treatment of severe hypoglycemia in adult patients with diabetes

    Company announcement – No. 25 / 2021 Zealand Pharma announces publication of Phase 3 trial evaluating efficacy and safety of dasiglucagon for treatment of severe hypoglycemia in adult patients with diabetes Copenhagen, DK and Boston, MA, U.S., May 3, 2021 – Zealand Pharma A/S (NASDAQ: ZEAL) (CVR-no. 20045078), a biotechnology company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative peptide-based medicines, today announced that Diabetes Care has published results from its Phase 3 trial evaluating dasiglucagon for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia in adults with diabetes. The article is available online, and will appear in Diabetes Care. The study found that dasiglucagon administration resulted in a reversal of hypoglycemia (with a median recovery time of 10 minutes) with 99% of trial participants reaching recovery within 15 minutes. "The results of this trial add significantly to the clinical evidence supporting the use of dasiglucagon for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia, and these data build upon the strong clinical data reported throughout dasiglucagon’s clinical trial program in this indication," said Thomas Pieber, Professor of Medicine, Head of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism and Chairman of the Department of Internal Medicine at Medical University of Graz, Austria. "This study provides convincing evidence of the potential of dasiglucagon as a treatment that can help patients and their caregivers to address severe hypoglycemia.” The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled multicenter Phase 3 study enrolled 170 adults with type 1 diabetes, each randomized to receive a single subcutaneous dose of dasiglucagon 0.6 mg, placebo, or reconstituted glucagon 1 mg during controlled insulin-induced hypoglycemia. The primary efficacy endpoint was time to plasma glucose recovery, defined as an increase of more than 20 mg/dL from baseline without the need for rescue with intravenous glucose, in adult patients treated with dasiglucagon versus placebo, with reconstituted glucagon included as a reference. In this study, the median time to recovery was 10 minutes for dasiglucagon, compared to 40 minutes for placebo (P < 0.001); and 12 minutes for reconstituted glucagon. In the dasiglucagon group, plasma glucose recovery was achieved within 15 minutes in all but one participant (99%), superior to placebo (2%; P < 0.001) and similar to glucagon (95%). All patients achieved recovery within the study period after receiving one dose. The most common adverse events reported (≥2%) were nausea, vomiting, headache, diarrhea, and injection site pain in adults. “The outcomes from this study are clinically meaningful and offer patients impacted by severe hypoglycemia an additional treatment option,” said Frank Sanders, President of Zealand Pharma U.S. “As minutes matter in severe hypoglycemia, this is an incredibly promising and exciting moment for both patients and Zealand.” INDICATION ZEGALOGUE (dasiglucagon) injection is indicated for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia in pediatric and adult patients with diabetes aged 6 years and above. IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION ContraindicationsZEGALOGUE is contraindicated in patients with pheochromocytoma because of the risk of substantial increase in blood pressure and in patients with insulinoma because of the risk of hypoglycemia. Warnings and Precautions ZEGALOGUE is contraindicated in patients with pheochromocytoma because glucagon products may stimulate the release of catecholamines from the tumor. If the patient develops a substantial increase in blood pressure and a previously undiagnosed pheochromocytoma is suspected, 5 to 10 mg of phentolamine mesylate, administered intravenously, has been shown to be effective in lowering blood pressure. In patients with insulinoma, administration of glucagon products may produce an initial increase in blood glucose; however, ZEGALOGUE administration may directly or indirectly (through an initial rise in blood glucose) stimulate exaggerated insulin release from an insulinoma and cause hypoglycemia. ZEGALOGUE is contraindicated in patients with insulinoma. If a patient develops symptoms of hypoglycemia after a dose of ZEGALOGUE, give glucose orally or intravenously. Allergic reactions have been reported with glucagon products; these include generalized rash, and in some cases anaphylactic shock with breathing difficulties and hypotension. Advise patients to seek immediate medical attention if they experience any symptoms of serious hypersensitivity reactions. ZEGALOGUE is effective in treating hypoglycemia only if sufficient hepatic glycogen is present. Patients in states of starvation, with adrenal insufficiency or chronic hypoglycemia may not have adequate levels of hepatic glycogen for ZEGALOGUE administration to be effective. Patients with these conditions should be treated with glucose. Adverse Reactions The most common adverse reactions (≥2%) associated with ZEGALOGUE in adults were nausea, vomiting, headache, diarrhea and injection site pain; in pediatrics: nausea, vomiting, headache and injection site pain. Drug Interactions Patients taking beta-blockers may have a transient increase in pulse and blood pressure when given ZEGALOGUE. In patients taking indomethacin, ZEGALOGUE may lose its ability to raise blood glucose or may produce hypoglycemia. ZEGALOGUE may increase the anticoagulant effect of warfarin.
