Saniona, a leading biotech company in the field of ion channels, today announces that the promising data from its Phase 2a study with Tesomet in type 2 diabetes has been selected for two poster presentations today at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes, EASD congress 2017 taking place in Lisbon, Portugal.

"We were very pleased that the results from this promising study confirmed that addition of metoprolol to tesofensine fully mitigates the increase in heart rate and blood pressure previously observed with tesofensine. In addition, the data showed a robust weight loss and reduction in waist circumference as well as numerical reduction in liver fat in patients with type 2 diabetes coupled with a favourable toleration and safety profile. Thus, these results, together with data from previous clinical studies with tesofensine supports the use of Tesomet as a safe and effective weight loss drug in patients with metabolic disorders like diabetes and obesity. As a result, we have initiated the preparation for long term clinical studies for metabolic diseases as well as eating disorders", says Jørgen Drejer, CEO of Saniona.
