WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., March 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MannKind Corporation (Nasdaq:MNKD) focused on the development and commercialization of inhaled therapeutic products for patients with diseases such as diabetes and pulmonary arterial hypertension, today announced that research results from two analyses have been accepted for presentation at the American Diabetes Association’s 78th Scientific Sessions, June 22-26, 2018 in Orlando, Florida:
- “Improved Postprandial Blood Glucose (PPBG) Excursions with Technosphere Inhaled Insulin Compared with Aspart in T1D Patients – STAT Study” will be an oral presentation
- “Improved Time-in-Range (TIR) on Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) with Technosphere Inhaled Insulin (TI) Compared with Aspart in T1D Patients – STAT Study” will be presented during the scientific poster session
The STAT study (STudy comparing insulin Aspart versus Technosphere insulin in patients with type 1 diabetes on multiple daily injections) is the first MannKind study to include and prospectively evaluate the use of continuous glucose monitoring with Afrezza therapy. The dual primary endpoints were assessment of glucose time-in-range as well as post-prandial glucose excursions in the 1-4 hour post-meal period.
“We are very pleased with the opportunity to present the STAT Study results at the 78th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association”, stated Dr. Satish Garg (Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes, University of Colorado Denver), senior author and principal investigator of the collaborative multicenter randomized study.
“MannKind welcomes the opportunity to share the results of this collaborative clinical trial and looks forward to pursuing additional analyses to assess the clinical use of Afrezza therapy for mealtime glucose control,” stated David Kendall, MD, Chief Medical Officer of MannKind Corporation. “We believe that the STAT Study results will offer important insights into ways that individuals with diabetes can potentially improve their experience and outcomes by using mealtime inhaled insulin ’in the moment.‘ Our long-term goal is to establish inhaled human insulin as both a useful option and a potential treatment of choice for those individuals with diabetes requiring mealtime glucose control.”
