A Pill to Replace Insulin

THE ABILITY TO REPLACE THE INSULIN MARKET

Insulin lowers blood sugar by enabling muscles to take up excess sugar and store it as glycogen. During insulin resistance, or in the absence of sufficient insulin, muscles don't take up the extra sugar, resulting in diabetes. Diabetes drugs require insulin or insulin sensitivity to be effective or exploit minor pathways for sugar utilization. As a result, diabetes drugs fail half of all people with diabetes.

 

biOOrg3.14's lead compound, BG-319, safely lowers blood sugar by correcting the major pathway of sugar utilization:  the muscles' ability to take up and store sugar as glycogen. BG-319 works independent of insulin, during insulin resistance, and at all stages of diabetes.

 

Because BG-319 does the primary job of insulin, the body is less dependent on insulin: reducing circulating insulin and the amount of exogenous insulin that has to be injected.
