vTv Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: VTVT) announced positive topline results from a placebo and active-comparator-controlled Phase 2b clinical study of TTP399, a liver-selective glucokinase activator under development for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes.

Topline results showed achievement of the primary endpoint of statistically significant change from baseline in HbA1c at 6 months of daily administration of 800 mg of TTP399. The reduction in HbA1c was dose-dependent and sustained throughout the duration of the study. TTP399 was also found to be well-tolerated. Further analysis of the data is ongoing.

“We are extremely pleased with these findings from our Phase 2b study of TTP399,” commented Steve Holcombe, President and CEO of vTv Therapeutics. “These results show that a glucokinase activator with hepatic selectivity may lead to a meaningful reduction in HbA1c on a sustained basis. We are enthusiastic about advancing TTP399 to the next stage of development.”

“We now have a glucokinase activator that appears to improve glucose control in a safe and sustained manner. Although further studies are necessary, I believe the Phase 2 results suggest that TTP399 may become a significant treatment option in diabetes care,” said Dr. John Buse, Director of the North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute and of the Diabetes Center at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and a member of the vTv Therapeutics Scientific Advisory Board.

The Phase 2b AGATA (Add Glucokinase Activator to Target A1c) study was a six-month, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo- and active-comparator-controlled, parallel group Phase 2b trial. The primary endpoint was change from baseline in HbA1c at six months. 190 subjects with Type 2 diabetes were enrolled and randomized into four arms, and 110 subjects remained in the trial through completion. 26 subjects received a daily dose of 800 mg of TTP399 for the full six-month course of treatment.

A manuscript with more details is in preparation and will be submitted for publication to a major medical journal.
