Biodel Completes Enrollment In Phase 2 Clinical Trial Of Ultra-Rapid-Acting Insulin Candidate BIOD-123 For The Treatment Of Diabetes

DANBURY, Conn., March 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Biodel Inc. (Nasdaq:BIOD) today announced the completion of patient enrollment in a Phase 2 clinical study of ultra-rapid-acting prandial insulin candidate BIOD-123 for the treatment of diabetes. The trial will evaluate the use of BIOD-123 versus Humalog ® on measures of HbA1c, postprandial glucose excursions, glycemic variability, hypoglycemic event rates and weight changes.

Dr. Errol De Souza, president and chief executive officer of Biodel, stated: "Completing enrollment of the BIOD-123 Phase 2 clinical trial is a significant milestone for Biodel, having nearly doubled the number of subjects in our original trial design without changing the timelines. This larger Phase 2 trial will allow us to more effectively test the benefits of a product candidate that has a more rapid absorption profile than currently marketed insulins. We remain on track to report top line data from this trial in the third calendar quarter of 2013."

The Phase 2 trial of BIOD-123 is a randomized, open label, parallel group study being conducted at approximately 30 investigative centers in the United States. In the trial, approximately 130 patients with type 1 diabetes were randomized to receive either BIOD-123 or Humalog ® to use as their mealtime insulin during an 18 week treatment period. Both arms of the study use insulin glargine, sold as Lantus ®, as the basal insulin. The clinical trial will evaluate HbA1c control as the primary endpoint, and secondary endpoints include postprandial glucose excursions, glycemic variability, hypoglycemic event rates and weight changes.
