Terns Pharmaceuticals to Highlight New Preclinical Data for TERN-601 Program in Obesity at the American Diabetes Association's 83rd Annual Scientific Sessions
FOSTER CITY, Calif., May 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terns Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Terns” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: TERN), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing a portfolio of small-molecule product candidates to address serious diseases, including oncology, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and obesity, today announced that new preclinical data from a transgenic mouse model evaluating TERN-601, a novel oral GLP-1R agonist, has been accepted for poster presentation at the American Diabetes Association’s 83rd Annual Scientific Sessions taking place June 23-26, 2023 in San Diego, California. The abstract will also be published online on the journal Diabetes® website.
Following are details of the upcoming presentation:
“We are excited to present these data before an audience of world leading endocrinologists,” said Sen Sundaram, chief executive officer at Terns. “Obesity is a growing epidemic and GLP-1 agonists have demonstrated broad metabolic benefits in obesity and Type 2 diabetes in clinical trials. Unfortunately, they are often limited by injectable dosing, poor tolerability and cost concerns. We believe TERN-601 has the potential to provide an alternative that is safe, effective and affordable with the convenience of a once-a-day tablet.”
As a reminder, all information contained in the submitted abstract should be considered preliminary and subject to change until the study is fully presented at the 83rd Scientific Sessions. All information is subject to embargo until Friday, June 23, 2023 at 6:30pm PT.
