Halozyme Therapeutics To Present New Data On The Company's Ultrafast Insulin Programs At ADA 2012









SAN DIEGO, June 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: HALO) today announced that the Company will present data from its diabetes studies for both multiple daily injections (MDI) and continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) Ultrafast Insulin programs at the 72nd Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) being held in Philadelphia, PA from June 8 – 12.

The annual meeting of the ADA is the largest scientific meeting for endocrinologists and other health care professionals involved in diabetes research and diabetes care. Halozyme will present data through one oral presentation and three posters, including one late-breaker, at the meeting. The data will provide key insights into the scientific basis and clinical utility of the Company's recombinant human hyaluronidase (rHuPH20) enzyme when paired with rapid analog insulins.

"We are pleased to be presenting study results that highlight the potential of ultrafast analog insulins in different clinical settings. rHuPH20 with analog insulins may provide a more consistent profile and reduce troublesome glucose swings. The goal is tighter glucose control and, ultimately, better management of the disease," said Gregory I. Frost, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer, Halozyme. "This meeting attracts some of the most innovative thinkers in the diabetes community. We look forward to participating in conversations and presentations that are united in the goal of improving treatment options for people living with diabetes."
