Resverlogix Reports on the Beneficial Effects of RVX-208 on Glucose Metabolism in Prediabetes Mellitus at the American Diabetes Association’s (ADA) Scientific Sessions in Boston, MA

CALGARY, June 8, 2015 /CNW/ – Resverlogix Corp. (TSX: RVX) today announced that findings of a study performed by the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, Melbourne, Australia and Resverlogix’s scientists were reported at the 2015 ADA Scientific Sessions in Boston, MA.  The presentation was entitled “Effects of the ApoA-I Inducer, RVX-208 on Glucose Metabolism in Individuals with Prediabetes Mellitus.”  The data in the presentation was based on patients with prediabetes mellitus who already had abnormal blood glucose levels. Treatment with RVX-208 (200 mg/day) for 29-33 days led to not only a reduction in glucose absorption but also suppression of endogenous glucose production. The significance of these findings are as follows: (1) short duration of RVX-208 treatment had effects on glucose metabolism, and (2) both the reduction in glucose absorption and production are expected to be of benefit in patients with prediabetes mellitus.
