AntriaBio Announces Preclinical Proof of Concept for Once-Weekly Basal Insulin AB101 in Diabetic Miniature Swine
LOUISVILLE, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/22/16 -- AntriaBio, Inc. ("AntriaBio" or the "Company") (OTCQB: ANTB), a biopharmaceutical corporation developing novel extended release therapies, released preclinical results in a diabetes animal model for its lead product candidate, AB101, at the American Diabetes Association 76th Scientific Sessions® in New Orleans.
The study was conducted in Alloxan-induced diabetic mini-pigs whose glucose was not controlled on an existing insulin regimen. Results demonstrated that a single subcutaneous dose of AB101 produced a slow onset and sustained PK-PD effect over the duration of one week, with near normalization of glucose, a decrease in glycemic variability and a reduction followed by discontinuation of background insulin use. Simulations of repeat weekly dosing predict a nearly flat or peakless steady state insulin profile over the entire weekly dosing interval. Multiple non-clinical development studies have now demonstrated a weekly insulin time-action profile with no acute or delayed sudden insulin increase. These observations predict that an ultra long-acting insulin such as AB101 could potentially stabilize endogenous insulin-glucose homeostasis, reduce glycemic variability and decrease the incidence of hypoglycemia in patients with diabetes mellitus.
"The results of our preclinical proof of concept pharmacology studies of once-weekly AB101 are exciting," said Brian Roberts, M.D., Vice President of Clinical Development at AntriaBio. "In addition to enabling significant progress toward initiating our first clinical study, these results, obtained in a patient-relevant animal model, affirmed our predicted dose-response and can be readily translated to clinically relevant doses and dose volumes in humans. We now have even greater confidence that similar safety and long-acting clinical pharmacology will be observed in clinical trials, which we are hopeful will one day translate into an important new treatment option for clinicians and patients."

AntriaBio is currently working towards the filing of an Investigational New Drug (IND) application for AB101 with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
