It is also involved in developing ISLT-Bdx, a PCR based molecular diagnostic measuring hypomethylated beta cell-derived DNA as a biomarker of beta cell loss for the early detection of type 1 diabetes or onset of insulin dependent type 2 diabetes. In addition, the company develops Remogliflozin, a selective SGLT2 inhibitor in Phase II clinical development for type 2 diabetes and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis.

Islet Sciences, Inc. Publishes Data Supporting Remogliflozin Etabonate as a Potential Treatment for NAFLD and NASH

Islet Sciences, Inc. has announced publication of pre-clinical data that demonstrates remogliflozin etabonate has significant potential as a novel therapeutic for the treatment of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Data published in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hepatology show that treatment with remogliflozin etabonate for four weeks in a mouse model of NAFLD inhibited high fat diet-induced weight gain, reduced fat accumulation in the liver, and reduced serum alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase to normal or near normal levels. In addition, remogliflozin etabonate treated animals displayed decreased inflammation in the liver, as well as lower oxidative stress. Data from this study also showed that remogliflozin has significant intrinsic anti-oxidant activity. These data along with published clinical data showing remogliflozin etabonate's ability to improve insulin sensitivity, reduce weight and lower elevated liver enzymes, strongly suggest remogliflozin etabonate as a possible therapeutic for NAFLD/NASH.

Islet Sciences, Inc. COO to Present at EASL: Remogliflozin Etabonate as Novel Treatment for Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)

Islet Sciences, Inc. announced that Chief Operating Officer, Dr. William Wilkison, was invited to present clinical and preclinical data highlighting the unique properties of selective sodium glucose transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, remogliflozin etabonate, as a novel treatment for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and its precursor, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The data will be presented at the 50th International Liver Conference held in Vienna, Austria April 22 26, 2015 by the European Association for the Study of Liver (EASL). The etiology of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is due, in part, to a combination of insulin resistance and oxidative stress. To date, studies with anti-diabetics or anti-oxidants have resulted in small effects on reversal of these factors in NASH patients. Remogliflozin etabonate (Remo) is an SGLT2 inhibitor shown to reduce HbA1c, improve insulin sensitivity and beta cell function, as well as reduce adiposity and body weight in type 2 diabetics. Additionally, unlike other SGLT2 inhibitors, Remo demonstrates intrinsic anti-oxidant activity, which may reverse the steatohepatitis and oxidative stress required to progress and maintain NASH. Remo is expected to enter phase 2b for NASH in 2015.
