From the News Wire
DANBURY, Conn., Mar. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Biodel Inc. (Nasdaq: BIOD) announced today that it has selected two new formulations of recombinant human insulin for clinical testing and is accelerating clinical development plans of these mealtime insulin drug candidates.  The new formulations, BIOD-105 and BIOD-107, are designed to result in more rapid insulin action compared to currently marketed meal time insulin analogs while maintaining an injection site tolerability profile comparable to currently marketed insulins.  Biodel plans to test these formulations in a Phase 1 clinical trial of approximately 18 patients with Type 1 diabetes.  This study is designed as a double blinded, three-period cross over trial in which patients will receive one subcutaneous injection of BIOD-105, BIOD-107 and Humalog® each on separate occasions.  This study, expected to be completed in the third calendar quarter of 2011, will evaluate pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic and tolerability profiles of the two experimental insulins relative to that of Humalog®.  In parallel with this subcutaneous injection study, Biodel plans to utilize a similar design to conduct a clinical pump study this year.
