In fact, if approved, AntriaBio believes AB101 will result in greater patient compliance (once weekly delivery versus once daily). Keep in mind, also, that the number of just over 300 million individuals with diabetes is expected to grow to be 550 million by 2030.
AntriaBio proposes that AB101 would be administered by subcutaneous injection and targets patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes who require basal insulin for the control of hyperglycemia. The formulation has been designed to release insulin slowly and uniformly over a period of approximately one week without an adverse initial burst of insulin. The release profile results in a low and sustained insulin level that supplements the effects of bolus insulin and complements the effects of other diabetes medications.
The firm has a very smart and efficient clinical approval pathway that includes for the possibility that AB101 may be able to be marketed in Russia while US and EU studies move forward at a slower pace.
This is a fascinating and innovative technology led by a group with plenty of product experience and we will follow this story as it unfolds.
In the meantime, given the share-count actually in the float currently, it may be wise for both traders and long-term holders to consider establishing positions in front of upcoming catalysts and before this marked biotech's popularity begins to spread.
