BEIJING and BRIDGEWATER, NJ., July 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Gan & Lee Pharmaceuticals Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Gan & Lee, stock code: 603087.SH), announced positive Phase 1 clinical trial results at the 81st Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association (ADA), June 25th – 29th. The new data pertained to three proposed biosimilar Gan & Lee insulin analogs, insulin aspart (GL-ASP), insulin lispro (GL-LIS), and insulin glargine (GL-GLA), and were presented by the primary investigators from Profil, (Germany).
All three phase 1 studies met their primary PK and primary PD analyses. These data demonstrate pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic bioequivalence between each of the proposed biosimilar Gan & Lee insulins and their respective reference compounds. In addition, the safety profiles were comparable between each of the three proposed biosimilar Gan & Lee insulins and their respective reference compounds1,2,3.
The data presented from the abstracts, are a major milestone in the biosimilar clinical development programs at Gan & Lee. Although 2021 marks the centenary of insulin’s discovery, insulin access remains a global health issue. “We are excited as we move one step closer to bringing biosimilar insulins into clinical practice with a goal of helping reduce the global burden of diabetes,” said Jia Lu, Executive Director of Clinical Sciences. The three abstracts have recently been published on the journal Diabetes® website and the poster presentation numbers for the GL-ASP, GL-LIS, and GL-GLA abstracts are 738-P, 736-P, and 740-P, respectively.
