LYON, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Adocia (Paris:ADOC)(Euronext Paris: FR0011184241 – ADOC), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the treatment of diabetes and other metabolic diseases with innovative formulations of approved proteins, announced today that two abstracts covering two portfolio candidates have been accepted for presentation at the upcoming 79th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association® (ADA). The ADA annual meeting will take place from June 7-11, 2019 in San Francisco, California.
These data presentations will feature two of the innovative products generated with Adocia’s proprietary BioChaperone® (BC) technology platform: BioChaperone® Pramlintide Insulin for the treatment of diabetes and BioChaperone® Glucagon Exenatide for the treatment of obesity.
“Adocia’s abstracts that have been selected for presentation at ADA present data from two very promising recent additions to Adocia’s innovative portfolio,” commented Dr. Olivier Soula, Deputy General Manager and R&D Director at Adocia. “The adjunction of FDA-approved pramlintide to intensive insulin treatment has long demonstrated its positive impact on glycemic control in people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. We are very pleased to share data showing that we replicate the postprandial effect of this association in a single injection of our coformulation of pramlintide and human insulin, potentially removing the burden of three additional daily injections. Additionally, we will share positive preclinical data, in mice, of our fixed-ratio combination of glucagon with exenatide, suggesting it holds promise to reduce weight in people with obesity.”
Details of the accepted abstracts are presented below:
- Oral Presentation #150-OR: Biochaperone Pramlintide Insulin (BCPramIns), A New Co-formulation Of Pramlintide (pram) And Human Insulin (ins), Improves Post-prandial Blood Glucose (BG) Versus Both Separate Injections Of Pram+Ins And Insulin Lispro (lis) in Subjects With T1D
Presenting Author: Dr. Grégory Meiffren

About the ADA Scientific Sessions
The American Diabetes Association’s Scientific Sessions offer researchers and health care professionals from around the globe an exclusive opportunity to share ideas and gain knowledge about the recent advances in diabetes research, treatment, and care. Attendees will have access to more than 3,000 original research presentations, take part in thought-provoking speaking engagements with leading diabetes experts, and expand their professional networks.
About BioChaperone® Pramlintide Insulin (BC Pram Ins):
BC Pram Ins is a ready-to-inject combination of pramlintide and human insulin at pH 7, intended to improve post-prandial glucose control for people using mealtime insulin. Of note, BC Pram Ins was recently designated as a backup to Adocia’s new ADO09 lead program combining pramlintide and A21G human insulin analog at pH4. Both formulations have shown promising results in two separate first-in-human clinical trials which topline data were recently published by Adocia.
About BioChaperone Glucagon Exenatide:
BioChaperone Glucagon Exenatide is a stable aqueous fixed-ratio combination of pancreatic hormone glucagon and GLP-1 receptor agonist exenatide, being developed as a treatment targeting obesity.
Adocia is a clinical-stage biotechnology company that specializes in the development of innovative formulations of already-approved therapeutic proteins and peptides for the treatment of diabetes and other metabolic diseases. In the diabetes field, Adocia’s portfolio of injectable treatments is among the largest and most differentiated of the industry, featuring seven clinical-stage products. Additionally, Adocia expanded its portfolio to include the development of treatments of obesity and short bowel syndrome.
The proprietary BioChaperone® technological platform is designed to enhance the effectiveness and/or safety of therapeutic proteins while making them easier for patients to use. Adocia customizes BioChaperone to each protein for a given application. Adocia’s clinical pipeline includes six novel insulin formulations for the treatment of diabetes: two ultra-rapid formulations of insulin analog lispro (BioChaperone® Lispro U100 and U200), a combination of basal insulin glargine and rapid-acting insulin lispro (BioChaperone® Combo), a rapid-acting formulation of human insulin (HinsBet® U100), and two combinations of a prandial insulin with amylin analog pramlintide (BioChaperone® Pramlintide Insulin and ADO09). It also includes an aqueous formulation of human glucagon (BioChaperone® Glucagon) for the treatment of hypoglycemia. Adocia preclinical pipeline includes combinations of insulin glargine with GLP-1 receptor agonists (BioChaperone® Glargine GLP-1) for the treatment of diabetes, a ready-to-use combination of glucagon and a GLP-1 receptor agonist (BioChaperone® Glucagon GLP1) for the treatment of obesity and a ready-to-use aqueous formulation of teduglutide (BioChaperone® Teduglutide) for the treatment of short bowel syndrome.
In 2018, Adocia and Chinese insulin leader Tonghua Dongbao entered into a strategic alliance. In April 2018, Adocia granted Tonghua Dongbao licenses to develop and commercialize BioChaperone Lispro and BioChaperone Combo in China and other Asian and Middle Eastern territories. The licensing included 50 million dollars upfront and up to 85 million dollars development milestones, plus double-digit royalties on sales. In June 2018, Tonghua Dongbao agreed to manufacture and supply active pharmaceutical ingredients insulin lispro and insulin glargine to Adocia globally, excluding China, to support Adocia’s portfolio development in these territories.
Adocia aims to deliver “Innovative medicine for everyone, everywhere.”
