MannKind Corp.

The studies also met primary endpoints.
MannKind said study 175 recorded superior reductions in A1c levels in type 2 patients and reduced glucose excursions after food intake. In study 171 in type 1 patients, significantly less hypoglycemia and reduction in fasting blood sugar noticed.
Study 171 was an open-label study involving 518 patients with type 1 diabetes on basal/bolus insulin therapy who were studied at sites in the United States, Russia, Ukraine and Brazil. Study 175 was a double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving 353 patients with type 2 diabetes whose disease was inadequately controlled on metformin with or without a second or third oral medication.
