Lexicon Completes Phase 1 Clinical Trial and Initiates Phase 2 Clinical Trial of LX4211 in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

- Lexicon's Fourth Drug Candidate in Phase 2 Development - Oral Drug Candidate Inhibits SGLT2, a Potential Target for Diabetes - Phase 1 Results Support Once Daily Dosing in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes

Press Release Source: Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. On Tuesday September 15, 2009, 6:30 am EDT

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: LXRX - News), a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering breakthrough treatments for human disease, obtained favorable results from recently completed Phase 1 studies of LX4211 and announced today that it has initiated a Phase 2 clinical trial of the drug candidate in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. LX4211 is an orally-delivered, small molecule drug candidate that inhibits the sodium glucose transporter 2 (SGLT2). LX4211 is Lexicon's fourth drug candidate currently being tested in Phase 2 clinical trials.

"LX4211 offers an opportunity to treat diabetes by increasing urinary glucose excretion through a mechanism of action that is expected to avoid some of the disadvantages of existing diabetes drugs that result in storage of excess glucose," said Brian P. Zambrowicz, Ph.D., executive vice president and chief scientific officer at Lexicon. "By contrast, LX4211 through inhibition of SGLT2 has the potential to reduce caloric load and thereby enhance overall glucose homeostasis in patients with type 2 diabetes."

In the recently completed Phase 1 clinical trial in normal healthy volunteers, LX4211 was well tolerated at all dose levels and produced a dose-dependent increase in urinary glucose excretion. LX4211 also demonstrated a favorable pharmacokinetic profile supporting the potential for once daily dosing. Adverse events were generally mild and were distributed across all dose groups, including the placebo group.

Based on the Phase 1 clinical results, Lexicon has initiated a Phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and tolerability of two dose levels of LX4211 and its effect on diabetes biomarkers including: fasting blood glucose, urinary glucose excretion and response to oral glucose tolerance testing in patients with type 2 diabetes. The four-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study will be conducted in the United States and is expected to enroll 36 patients with type 2 diabetes.

In addition to LX4211, Lexicon has three other drug candidates progressing in Phase 2 clinical trials: LX1031 for irritable bowel syndrome, LX1032 for carcinoid syndrome and LX2931 for rheumatoid arthritis. For more information about Lexicon's clinical development programs, please visit www.lexpharma.com.

About the Target

LX4211 was developed at Lexicon as a potent inhibitor of the sodium glucose transporter 2 (SGLT2), a transporter responsible for the majority of glucose reabsorption by the kidneys. Lexicon found that mouse knockouts engineered to lack the SGLT2 gene are healthy and require less insulin to manage a glucose challenge. Compounds developed by Lexicon that inhibit SGLT2 may potentially treat diabetes by increasing urinary glucose excretion, thereby lowering blood glucose levels as well as caloric load.

15.09.2009 - ZEW (ssc/mko/kbo)

ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment - Economic Expectations Stabilise

The ZEW Indicator of Economic Sentiment for Germany remained almost unchanged in September 2009. The indicator rose by 1.6 points and now stands at 57.7 points after 56.1 points in the previous month. This value is well above the indicator's historical average of 26.6 points.

The current development of the indicator shows that the the financial experts' positive economic expectations have further stabilised. The economic outlook for Germany mainly depends on the recovery of the world economy and better prospects for German exporters. Furthermore, the financial experts are more optimistic about private consumption, although the prospects for the next six months are burdened by the end of the auto wrecking bonus and by an anticipated rise of unemployment.

"The economic expectations for Germany are consistent with the picture that the German economy is recovering, but at a slow pace. With regard to the national debt additional government stimulus packages are not appropriate" says ZEW President Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Wolfgang Franz.

The assessment of the current economic situation in Germany improved in September. The corresponding indicator rose by 3.2 points to minus 74.0 points.

The economic expectations for the euro zone rose in September by 4.7 points compared to the previous month. The respective indicator now stands at 59.6 points. The indicator for the current economic situation in the euro zone improved by 4.2 points and now stands at minus 77.9 points.

In the "Off The Charts" segment, Cramer went head to head with colleague Dan Fitzpatrick over the chart of electronics manufacturing outsourcer Flextronics (FLEX Quote).

According to Fitzpatrick, the chart of Flextronics is thing of beauty, with the stock extending gains over its 50-day moving average, after retesting that average five times in the last few months. Given that the stock broke down at $8.60 a share, Fitzpatrick sees shares headed back to those levels before meeting any additional resistance.

Turning to the stock's fundamentals, Cramer said he totally agrees with Fitzpatrick. He said the metric that matters in this business is utilization rate, and at 60% to 70% utilization, Flextronics is ahead of its peers.

But Cramer has lots more to love about the company, including its diverse customer base, which means that no single customer can hurt Flextronics too badly. Likewise, the company is also geographically diverse, making it immune to any one country's economy, he said.

According to Cramer, Flextronics also has reduced its inventory levels, begun manufacturing some higher-end products with higher margins, and has 21% of its business exposed to the red hot mobile device market.

Trading at just 12 times 2011 earnings, Cramer said he is a buyer of Flextronics, which he calls the best house in a sizzling neighborhood.
