Boehringer Ingelheim And Eli Lilly And Company Alliance To Feature 34 Presentations On Type 1 And Type 2 Diabetes At The 73rd American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions®

RIDGEFIELD, Conn. and INDIANAPOLIS, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) are pleased to announce that the companies' diabetes alliance will have a strong scientific and clinical presence at the 73rd American Diabetes Association (ADA) Scientific Sessions ® in Chicago, June 21-25, with 34 posters, abstracts and an oral presentation.

Empagliflozin* Data  A total of 17 clinical and pre-clinical abstracts for the investigational agent empagliflozin will be presented, including three late-breaker abstracts. Empagliflozin is a member of the sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor class of compounds and is being investigated for the reduction of blood glucose levels in adults with T2D. The emerging SGLT2 inhibitor class removes excess glucose through the urine by blocking glucose re-absorption by the kidney.

Details of clinical empagliflozin presentations and published abstracts are as follows:
  • Saturday, June 22, 11:30 a.m.1:30 p.m., General Poster Session[1]
    • Sodium Glucose Cotransport-2 Inhibition With Empagliflozin Attenuates Renal Hyperfiltration in Patients with Type 1 Diabetes (Presenting Author: D. Cherney) [Poster No. 1196-P]
  • Sunday, June 23, Noon – 2 p.m., General Poster Session[1]
    • Empagliflozin Improves Glycemic Parameters and Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes (T2DM): Pooled Data from Four Pivotal Phase III Trials (Presenting Author: T. Hach) [Late-breaking poster – Poster No. 69-LB]

Linagliptin DataA total of 17 clinical and pre-clinical abstracts regarding linagliptin will also be presented, including two late-breaker abstracts. Linagliptin is an inhibitor of DPP-4, which breaks down the incretin hormones glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) that are involved with regulating blood sugar.[2]

    • Baseline characteristics of patients enrolled in the cardiovascular outcome study of linagliptin versus glimepiride in patients with type 2 diabetes (CAROLINA) (Published Author: N. Marx) [Abstract book for the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 73rd Scientific Sessions]

Linagliptin, which is marketed as Tradjenta® (linagliptin) tablets in the U.S., is a once-daily 5mg tablet used along with diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes. Linagliptin should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes or for the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis (increased ketones in the blood or urine). Linagliptin is a DPP-4 inhibitor that does not require dose adjustments, regardless of declining renal function or hepatic impairment.
