About Diasome:
Diasome is the developer of Hepatocyte Directed Vesicles (HDV™), the world’s most clinically advanced liver targeting system for drugs used to treat diabetes. When combined with insulin, HDV™ enables preferential insulin delivery to liver hepatocytes in order to significantly reduce the risk of hypoglycemia in patients. The HDV system can be used with any form of insulin and is being tested in both injectable and oral insulin products. If approved, HDV-insulin would represent the most clinically differentiated commercially available rapid-acting pre-meal insulin.

About Type 1 Diabetes (T1D)
T1D is a chronic, auto-immune disease characterized by the inability of the pancreas to produce insulin, which leads to elevated blood sugar levels. Diabetes costs represent a large burden to both patients and the healthcare system. More than 1.6 million Americans are living with T1D, and there is no cure.

Insulin-induced hypoglycemia is recognized by the American Diabetes Association as the major limiting factor in the glycemic control of type 1 and type 2 diabetes and there are no currently approved mealtime insulin therapies that have been shown to prevent hypoglycemia.
