TTP273 is an oral, small molecule, glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist being evaluated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. In December 2017, we licensed the rights to develop and commercialize TTP273 in China and certain Pacific Rim territories to Huadong Medicine.
GLP-1 is a member of the incretin family of neuroendocrine peptide hormones secreted from L-cells of the intestine in response to food ingestion. GLP-1 has multiple metabolic effects that are attractive for an anti-diabetic agent, which have been validated by existing injectable peptide GLP-1R agonists.
TTP273 has completed a 3 month phase 2 study in patients with type 2 diabetes where it demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in HbA1c. TTP273 was well-tolerated, with negligible incidences of nausea and vomiting across all arms of the study. Trends towards weight loss were also observed.
