ARECOR TO HOST KOL WEBINAR ON THE NEED FOR CONCENTRATED AND RAPID ACTING
INSULIN TREATMENTS IN DIABETES CARE
Cambridge, UK, 18 May 2022: Arecor Therapeutics plc (AIM: AREC), the
biopharmaceutical group advancing today's therapies to enable healthier lives,
today announces that it will host a key opinion leader webinar entitled "The
Need for Concentrated and Rapid Acting Insulin Treatments in Diabetes Care",
on Thursday 26 May, 2022, at 15:00-16:30 BST.
The virtual event will explore the treatment challenges for the growing number
of people living with diabetes, particularly those with type 2 diabetes, who
require high daily doses of insulin to maintain their blood glucose within
their target range. While rapid acting insulins have become standard of care,
there are currently no concentrated rapid acting insulin products available to
patients to enable reduced injection volumes, fewer injections per day and the
potential for improved blood glucose control.
Arecor is developing a novel insulin product candidate, AT278, which uniquely
combines two key characteristics: an ultra-rapid onset of action which is
critical for postprandial glucose control and an ultra-concentrated
formulation to enable reduced injection volumes and fewer injections per day.
Data from a Phase I clinical trial of AT278, recently presented at the 15(th)
International Advanced Technologies and Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD)
meeting, showed that AT278 exhibited an accelerated pharmacokinetic (PK) and
pharmacodynamic (PD) profile when compared to NovoRapid®, a gold standard
prandial insulin treatment, despite a 5-fold increase in concentration.
Arecor's webinar will bring together four world-class experts in the field of
diabetes care, who will discuss the AT278 clinical data as well as the
clinical and patient need. The event will be moderated by Jay Skyler,
Professor of Medicine, Pediatrics & Psychology, in the Division of
Endocrinology Diabetes & Metabolism at the University of Miami, USA.
· Wendy Lane, Clinical Endocrinologist, Director of Clinical Research,
Mountain Diabetes and Endocrine Center, Asheville, USA, will discuss the
increasing need for rapid-acting concentrated insulin products for people
living with Type 2 diabetes from a clinical perspective.
· Davida Kruger, Certified Diabetes Nurse Practitioner, Henry Ford
Health System, Division of Endocrinology, Detroit, USA, will focus on the
benefits of concentrated insulin from the patient perspective.
· Thomas Pieber, Head of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism
at the Medical University of Graz, Austria, will summarise the results from
Arecor's Phase I clinical trial of its ultra-rapid, ultra-concentrated insulin
product candidate, AT278.
The presentations will be followed by a live Q&A session.
