Main activity

Poxel is a diabetes drug development specialist, aiming at finding innovative solutions for the management of metabolic diseases. Poxel's rich pipeline of first-in-class products with disease-modifying mechanisms of action offering potential for safer, more effective therapies. The lead compound, Imeglimin, a mitochondria bioenergetics regulator, acting on the two main defects of Type 2 diabetes i.e. increasing insulin secretion in a glucose-dependent manner and improving insulin sensitivity, has just completed its phase 2b clinical trial to treat Type 2 diabetes. It has achieved proof-of-concept in two monotherapy clinical trials and as add-on therapy to the standard treatments. In addition, Poxel's portfolio includes a direct AMPK activator nearing phase 1 clinical development. This compound did prove benefits in preclinical studies for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes and co-morbidities. Poxel was formed in 2009 as a spin out from Merck Serono, a leading global player in the field of metabolic disorders.
