HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — vTv Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: VTVT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to improving the quality of life for people with diabetes, is sharing its updated corporate presentation highlighting its lead program TTP399, a novel oral liver-selective glucokinase activator, as a transformative treatment in the reduction of hypoglycemic episodes for the global diabetes population.
Key Takeaways include:
- Hypoglycemia is common in people with type 1 diabetes and can occur quickly, with symptoms including sweating, nausea, coordination problems, headaches and even seizures.
- TTP399 may be used as a once-daily, oral adjunctive therapy in a $16B global insulin market for the reduction of hypoglycemic episodes.
- TTP399 has been tested in almost 600 patients to date with no evidence of diabetic ketoacidosis.
- vTv has worldwide rights to TTP399 with global pivotal trials anticipated in 2022.
- vTv is actively seeking to raise non-dilutive capital through licensing TTP399 in regions outside of North America and Europe.
- vTv is also actively seeking licensing deals for HPP737 and other assets.
“We are excited to share our presentation highlighting the differentiation of TTP399 and the massive market opportunity it presents as an oral adjunctive therapy to insulin,” said Deepa Prasad, President and Chief Executive Officer of vTv Therapeutics. “Hypoglycemia is a major barrier to achieving glycemic control, and with the potential for expansion into type 2 diabetes, we have the opportunity to make a significant impact around the world. We are also seeking partners to develop our other drug candidates.”
