LEXINGTON, MA – AUGUST 12, 2016 – Fractyl Laboratories Inc. (Fractyl) announced today publication of data in the current issue of Diabetes Care from the Company’s first-in-human study of RevitaTM duodenal mucosal resurfacing (Revita DMR). “Endoscopic Duodenal Mucosal Resurfacing for the Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes: 6-Month Interim Analysis from the First-in-Human Proof-of-Concept Study” is the first comprehensive analysis and publication of data from 39 patients in the first-in-human Revita DMR trial.  The results showed a significant improvement in hyperglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes poorly controlled on one or more oral antidiabetic agents (screening HbA1c: 9.5%).
