DANBURY, Conn., Dec. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Biodel Inc. (Nasdaq:BIOD) today reported financial results for the fourth fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Highlights of fourth fiscal quarter:

  • Initiated Phase 2 clinical trial of BIOD-123, an ultra-rapid-acting formulation of recombinant human insulin (RHI); top line data expected in the third calendar quarter of 2013.
  • Initiated Phase 1 clinical trial of BIOD-238 and BIOD-250, two ultra-rapid-acting formulations of an insulin analog; top line data expected in the first calendar quarter of 2013.
  • Awarded two NIH grants totaling approximately $1.16MM to develop novel and stable glucagon and concentrated ultra-rapid-acting insulin formulations for use in an artificial pancreas.
  • Prioritized liquid glucagon program to develop room temperature presentations.
  • Hosted research and development seminar featuring independent diabetes experts describing unmet medical needs and therapeutic developments related to Biodel's ultra-rapid-acting insulin and glucagon programs.

Dr. Errol De Souza, president and chief executive officer of Biodel, stated: "We are pleased to be on track to generate top line Phase 1 data for two ultra-rapid-acting insulin analog-based formulations in the first calendar quarter of 2013 and to generate top line Phase 2 safety and efficacy data for RHI-based BIOD-123 in the third calendar quarter of 2013. We believe that our decision to shift our focus to developing a room temperature glucagon presentation presents the best opportunity to achieve a more competitive product."
