MEDI0382 is under development for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). In a double-blind study (NCT02548585), 51 T2DM patients with BMI 27-40 kg/m2 were randomized (1:1) to daily SC MEDI0382 200 μg or placebo (PBO). Based on ANCOVA with treatment and baseline (BL) values as covariates, MEDI0382 markedly reduced fasting glucose (change from BL at day 41, -49.9 vs. -19.2 mg/dL; P < 0.0001) and postprandial glucose in a mixed-meal tolerance test (percent change from BL in glucose AUC0-4h, -32.8 vs. -10.2; P < 0.0001) (Figure 1) with no increase in hypoglycemia. HbA1c levels decreased -0.9% with MEDI0382 and -0.6% with PBO (P = 0.0004). Weight loss was 3.8 kg vs. BL (1.7 kg vs. PBO; P = 0.0008); 92% of MEDI0382 patients lost >2 kg. Mean reduction in ambulatory systolic BP was -4.2 for MEDI0382 vs. -1.5 mmHg for PBO (P = ns). As with marketed GLP-1 analogs, a mean pulse increase of 6.8 BPM for MEDI0382 vs. a fall of 2.0 BPM for PBO was seen (P < 0.0001). Treatment-related AEs such as decreased appetite, vomiting, and headache were seen in more patients on MEDI0382 (20 vs. 15); 0 were grade >3 severity, 3 led to study discontinuation for MEDI0382 vs. 1 for PBO, and 1 SAE in the PBO arm. Overall, MEDI0382 normalized fasting and postprandial blood glucose, significantly reduced body weight, and had an acceptable safety profile over 41 days of dosing in obese/overweight T2DM patients.
