Transition Therapeutics halts development of diabetes drug after clinical trial failure

Transition Therapeutics reported it will halt development of an experimental drug for patients with type 2 diabetes after a clinical trial of the agent failed to meet its efficacy endpoints. The study was investigating the gastrin analogue TT-223 in combination with a GLP-1 analogue from Eli Lilly. Transition CEO Tony Cruz noted that although "TT-223 has shown efficacy through development, these results indicate that it does not have the product profile for a diabetes therapy."
