SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/14 -- Aegis announced today that it is offering an exclusive license to develop, commercialize, and sell its patented non-invasive exenatide metered nasal spray diabetes drug. Exenatide is a 39-amino acid synthetic peptide GLP-1 analog highly effective in controlling blood glucose levels in Type-2 diabetes. All currently available GLP-1 analogs require injection. The currently marketed injectable form of exenatide, sold under the trademark Byetta®, requires twice daily injections. The Aegis patented Intravail® based formulation of exenatide provides equivalent blood levels using a simple metered nasal spray to replace each of the two daily injections. The total market for GLP-1 analogs is expected to grow to $5 billion within the next few years. As the only non-injectable option for patients seeking to avoid needles, needlestick injuries, and syringe disposal problems, the non-injectable Aegis nasal spray exenatide formulation is poised to achieve significant market share.
For licensing inquiries, please contact Ralph Barry.
