RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DARA BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:DARA), provided additional details from the recently completed Phase I clinical study for DB959, its PPAR (peroxisome proliferator activated receptor) delta/gamma agonist, an oral drug in development for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes. As previously announced, the safety of DB959Na was comparable to placebo with no reports of moderate, severe, or serious adverse events in any subjects in the study, and the compound is likely to meet the target dosing regimen of once a day, thus meeting an important goal for the program. New information relates to the additional study objective of determining the maximum tolerated single oral dose of DB959Na. The company announced that subjects in the study tolerated the 200 mg single dose as well as any of the other doses in the study. Therefore, the maximum tolerated single dose is higher than 200 mg, which is well beyond the anticipated therapeutic dose.
