Biodel to Present Data on Ultra-Rapid-Acting Insulin and Glucagon Product Candidates at 2014 American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions

DANBURY, CT--(Marketwired - June 10, 2014) - Biodel Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOD)

  • Updated safety and efficacy data from Phase II trial of ultra-rapid-acting recombinant human insulin formulation BIOD-123 in patients with Type 1 Diabetes presented in Oral Scientific Session.
  • Two late-breaking poster presentations on concentrated, ultra-rapid-acting insulin formulation BIOD-531.
  • New data from a study of glucagon formulation BIOD-961 for use in a novel auto-reconstitution device to treat severe hypoglycemia.

Biodel Inc. will present data on its investigational diabetes product candidates in a scientific forum during the 74th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association, June 13 - 17, in San Francisco, CA. These data, including an oral presentation of an abstract on the ultra-rapid-acting prandial insulin product BIOD-123 and two poster presentations of the ultra-rapid-acting concentrated insulin BIOD-531, demonstrate significant progress in the development of recombinant human insulin and glucagon therapies. 

"We are pleased to present data on novel insulin formulations with unique profiles that may offer important advantages for patients with diabetes," said Alan Krasner, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Biodel Inc. "BIOD-961 is a glucagon formulation designed for use with a user-friendly auto-reconstitution injector device. This may represent an attractive alternative to current therapies which involve cumbersome, labor-intensive reconstitution kits for emergency treatment of severe hypoglycemia."

Biodel presentations and published abstracts include:

Oral Presentation Abstract #130-OR: Safety and Efficacy of Ultra-Rapid-Acting Human Insulin Formulation BIOD-123 in Patients with Type 1 Diabetes will be presented by Alan Krasner, M.D. (Biodel Inc.) on Saturday, June 14, 2014, at 4:45 pm PDT in the Oral Session entitled Prandial Insulin Therapy scheduled for 4:00 - 6:00 pm PDT. In a Phase 2 study, BIOD-123 met the primary efficacy endpoint of non-inferiority in change from baseline HbA1c relative to the rapid-acting insulin analog marketed as Humalog®.

Late Breaking Poster Presentation Abstract #79-LB: Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Profiles of BIOD-531 Vs. Insulin Lispro U-100 or U-500R Following Pump Bolus or Subcutaneous Administration in Miniature Diabetic Swine will be presented by Roderike Pohl, Ph.D. (Biodel Inc.) on Sunday, June 15, 2014, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT, #79-LB in category 01-B Clinical Therapeutics/New Technologies-Insulins.

Late Breaking Poster Presentation Abstract #82-LB: Concentrated Insulin BIOD-531 Is Associated with Accelerated Onset of Action Compared to Humulin® R U-500 and Humalog® Mix75/25™ and a Basal Duration Profile will be presented by Linda Morrow, M.D. (Profil Institute of Clinical Research) on Sunday, June 15, 2014, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT, #82-LB in category 01-B Clinical Therapeutics/New Technologies-Insulins. In a head-to-head Phase I trial, BIOD-531 demonstrated a faster onset of action compared to concentrated human insulin and Humalog® Mix 75/25 and a basal duration of action. 

Abstract #2387-PO: Novel Adult and Pediatric Auto-Reconstitution Glucagon Formulations for Treatment of Severe Hypoglycemia: Comparison to Marketed Glucagon in Dogs by lead author Roderike Pohl, Ph.D. (Biodel Inc.). This abstract will be published in the Clinical Therapeutics/New Technology-Non-Insulin Injectables category.

The presentation abstracts can be accessed by registered meeting attendees through the association's website, www.diabetes.org.

About BIOD-123

BIOD-123 is an ultra-rapid-acting mealtime insulin in development for the treatment of type I and type II diabetes. BIOD-123 combines recombinant human insulin (RHI) with a proprietary combination of excipients to increase the rate of absorption following injection when compared to other commercially available insulin formulations.

About BIOD-531

BIOD-531 is an ultra-rapid-acting concentrated insulin (U-400) formulation intended to address insulin-resistant patients requiring large doses of insulin and patients who use premixed insulins. In clinical studies, BIOD-531 demonstrated a more rapid rate of absorption and onset of action than Humulin® R U-500 and Humalog® Mix75/25™ premixed insulin and an extended duration of action that is expected to be suitable for basal insulin needs.
