About Elcelyx Therapeutics

Elcelyx Therapeutics is developing therapeutic agents based on the finding that modulation of the neuro-enteroendocrine system of the gut, including L-cells, amplifies the release of hormones such as those that play an important role in glucose regulation. This discovery affords a potentially safety advantaged platform to develop therapies as well as re-position existing therapies to meet serious unmet needs. Elcelyx's Metformin Delayed Release (Metformin DR) releases metformin in the gut instead of systemically, reducing bioavailability while still achieving efficacy. In two previous Phase 2 studies, Metformin DR lowered glucose and was well tolerated in patients with type 2 diabetes.
