Proof of Concept Study to be published in Peer Reviewed Journal
LAWRENCE, Mass., May 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boston Therapeutics (OTCQB:BTHE) is pleased to announce the acceptance of the Phase I proof of concept study of the pharmacology of BTI-320 prior to high glycemic meals for publication in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology in Drug Development, a top tier pharmacology journal. The study confirmed that BTI-320 significantly attenuated post-prandial glucose excursion in obese but otherwise healthy individuals. Consumption of BTI-320 prior to carbohydrate food or a sugary beverage significantly reduced post-prandial glucose levels and insulin responses in a dose-dependent manner.
Boston Therapeutics’ CEO, Carl W. Rausch describes the importance of these data. He noted, “Such a reduction in this important parameter has been reported to reduce the risk of diabetic complications. Compliance was over 95% and the safety profile is such that this treatment may become an important adjunct to lifestyle modification in high-risk individuals for preventing diabetes.”
The company continues to develop BTI-320 in on-going Phase II studies that are underway in the US and Asia. The expansion of wearable continuous glucose monitoring devices will enable those at risk to see the effects of BTI-320 in real time, promoting better dietary choices. The compound is an innovative approach in changing the treatment of diabetes and related complication and may have a significant impact in alleviating the healthcare burden.
