HISHS-30is a novel long-acting, Gastric inhibitory peptide (GIP) /Glucagon like peptide-1 (GLP-1) /Glucagon tri-receptor agonist. An in-vitro cyclic AMP assay in human receptor- expressing CHO-K1 cells demonstrated that HISHS-30had a half-maximal effective concentration 2.9 and 6.5 fold higher than exendin-4 or GIP, respectively, and 355-fold lower than glucagon. Subcutaneous dosing every third day for 4 weeks in diabetic db/db mice of HISHS-30at 3 and 20 nmol/kg reduced HbA1c, body weight, triglycerides and glucagon levels robustly and markedly more than tirzepatide (Table) .Treatment with HISHS-30also led to an increase in serum and liver Fibroblast Growth Factor-21 (FGF-21) levels vs. tirzepatide.

In conclusion, HISHS-30is a potent, long acting GIP/GLP-1/glucagon tri-receptor agonist, with higher effects on glucose homeostasis and metabolic biomarkers in diabetic mice than tirzepatide.
