vTv Therapeutics Initiates Patient Dosing in AGATA Study, a six Month Phase 2 Study Evaluating TTP399, a Liver-selective GlucoKinase Activator, for Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes

vTv Therapeutics LLC announced that it has initiated dosing of the AGATA study, a phase 2b clinical trial assessing the efficacy and safety of TTP399, an oral liver-selective Glucokinase Activator (GKA), in patients with type 2 diabetes. In a phase 2a study, TTP399 demonstrated a statistically significant and clinically meaningful reduction in A1c levels compared with placebo after only 6 weeks of dosing, without induction of hypoglycemia or hyperlipidemia and with no induction of insulin secretion in patients with type 2 diabetes. The AGATA (Add Glucokinase Activator to Target A1c) study is a multi-center, double-blind, placebo- and active-controlled (sitagliptin), study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of TTP399 following six months administration in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus on a stable dose of metformin. The trial is designed to demonstrate that TTP399 produces significant and sustainable improvement in glycemic control. Patients enrolled will be randomized to receive placebo, 400 mg or 800 mg of TTP399 or 100mg of sitagliptin once daily for 6 months. The primary efficacy endpoint is change in A1c from baseline to the end of randomized treatment. Key secondary endpoints include changes in lipid parameters and body weight. The AGATA study will be conducted in the United States and is expected to enroll approximately 180 patients. vTv Therapeutics, utilizing its proprietary drug discovery platform, TTP Translational Technology®, has discovered and developed a series of novel, small-molecule, liver-selective GKAs that appear to stimulate the body's ability to regulate glucose levels without inducing hypoglycemia. TTP399 is the lead clinical candidate and is an oral liver selective compound with a novel binding mode to GK and physiochemical properties that appear to result in functioning only in the liver without interrupting the physiological regulation of GK by the GK regulatory protein. In a 6-week, multi-center, phase 2a study in type 2 diabetic subjects on stable doses of metformin, TTP399 demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in A1c levels in all TTP399 dose groups compared with placebo, without induction of hypoglycemia or hyperlipidemia and with no induction of insulin secretion in patients with type 2 diabetes. Within the high dose arm of TTP399, approximately 86% of patients with A1c levels <= 7.5% at baseline achieved blood glucose normalization, defined as A1c <= 6.5%, after six weeks of treatment, while 50% of patients with A1c levels <= 8% at baseline achieved normalization after six weeks. For all doses combined, approximately 40% of patients with A1c levels <= 7.5% at baseline achieved blood glucose normalization while 25% of patients with A1c levels <= 8% at baseline achieved normalization. None of the patients receiving placebo reached A1c normalization.
