AstraZeneca And Bristol-Myers Squibb To Present New Data At American Diabetes Association 73rd Scientific Sessions®

AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) and Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE: BMY) announced today that 33 abstracts on the companies’ research in diabetes have been accepted for presentation at the 73rd Scientific Sessions ® of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) in Chicago, June 21-25. The data include studies from five marketed products as well as dapagliflozin, an investigational compound in the U.S., currently approved for use in the European Union, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico. In addition to blood glucose control, studies presented at the meeting examine impact on cardiovascular risk factors such as weight and blood pressure, which are important to overall disease management in people with diabetes.

“The AstraZeneca and Bristol-Myers Squibb Alliance will present data on a broad, versatile portfolio including Onglyza, Kombiglyze XR, Symlin, Byetta and Bydureon, as well as the investigational compound dapagliflozin,” said John Yee, MD, MPH, vice president, head of Medical Affairs, AstraZeneca/Bristol-Myers Squibb U.S. Diabetes Alliance. “The diversity of data reflects our joint commitment to researching and delivering innovative medicines and treatment options to help patients overcome the burdens of diabetes.”

Key presentations include:

  • The first presentation of Phase IIa pilot data exploring the use of dapagliflozin in adult patients with type 1 diabetes (late-breaking poster, 70-LB)
  • Four-year data examining the durability of dapagliflozin vs. glipizide as add-on therapies in patients with type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled on metformin (late-breaking poster, 62-LB)
  • Study evaluating the efficacy and tolerability of saxagliptin in patients with type 2 diabetes and a history of cardiovascular disease (poster 1174-P)
  • Three-year data from a study examining the effect of exenatide once weekly on sustained glycemic control and weight compared with insulin glargine (oral presentation, 67-OR)
  • Phase IV study examining glycemic control, weight, and hypoglycemia with exenatide compared to mealtime administration of rapid-acting analog insulin (oral presentation, 70-OR)
