Ligand Pharmaceuticals announced data from a Phase 1 clinical trial with LGD-6972 that demonstrate favorable safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics in normal healthy volunteers and in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus, and also demonstrate a robust response on fasting plasma glucose after a single dose. LGD-6972 is Ligandís novel glucagon receptor antagonist and these first-in-human data were presented at the American Diabetes Associationís 74th Scientific Sessions meeting underway in San Francisco. Highlights of the single-ascending dose trial involving a total of 56 subjects include: LGD-6972 was well-tolerated; there were no clinically significant or dose-dependent changes in hematology, clinical chemistry, urinalysis, ECG or vital signs, and no serious adverse events. LGD-6972 was well-absorbed after oral administration; peak plasma concentrations were reached approximately 5 to 8 hours post dose with a long elimination half-life of approximately 50 hours, supporting once-daily dosing. After a single dose, LGD-6972 reduced fasting plasma glucose in normal healthy volunteers and in subjects with type 2 diabetes. Fasting plasma glucose was reduced by 57 mg/dL in subjects with type 2 diabetes, suggesting a robust response in this acute study.
