About ITCA 650
ITCA 650 is being developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, combining Intarcia’s proprietary technology platform involving a matchstick-size, miniature osmotic pump that is placed sub-dermally to provide continuous and consistent drug therapy, and the company’s proprietary formulation technology, which maintains stability of therapeutic proteins and peptides at human body temperatures for extended periods of time. Exenatide, the active agent in ITCA 650, is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist currently marketed globally as twice-daily and once-weekly self-injection therapies for type 2 diabetes. If approved, ITCA 650 would represent the first injection-free GLP-1 therapy capable of delivering up to a full year of treatment from a single device placement. ITCA 650 is currently in a global Phase 3 clinical trial program called FREEDOM.
