The objective of this work was to set up early on a PK and PKPD framework based on clinical endpoints (fasting plasma glucose (FPG), glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c)) in T2DM for Imeglimin, the first in a new, tetrahydrotriazine-containing class of oral antidiabetic agents, the Glimins.
The poster was presented at the 72nd scientific sessions of the American Diabetes Association meeting in Philadelphia 8-12 June.
This phase II trial did confirm Imeglimin additive effect to metformin in metformin failing patients. Imeglimin exhibited a positive tolerability and safety profile.
The aim of the work was to predict a likely clinical efficacious dose for a new Poxel antidiabetic compound, with a new mechanism of action, based on in vitro activity data, PKPD modeling in ob/ob mice and glucose as single endpoint.
The reknown asnethesiology team of Ulm university did present such data on the occasion of the International Symposium on Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine that took place in Brussels from March 20 to 23.
Imeglimin has been awarded a €950K refundable grant to support the phase 2 development package currently running at Poxel. A second program, targeting direct AMPK activation, has been granted up to €500K to enable the preclinical development start. This program is co-financed by the European Union. €250K are funded by the European Fund of Regional Development (FEDER) and €250K are a refundable grant from OSEO.
Europe is committed to the Rhône-Alpes region with the European Fund of Regional Development.
These funding reflect the confidence that OSEO puts on Poxel capabilities to progress the development of these 2 innovative programs. http://www.oseo.fr/
