New York, NY (October 7, 2019) — GlycoMark, Inc. announces additional study data describing GlycoMark® test results in patients on SGLT-2 inhibitors are being presented during the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Advancing Precision Diabetes Medicine Research Symposium on October 8 – 9, 2019 in Madrid, Spain. The GlycoMark test, an FDA-cleared and CE marked blood test used to monitor glycemic control in patients with diabetes, is sensitive and specific to detecting high blood glucose levels and glucose variability during the prior 1 to 2 weeks. These new data are in follow-up to preliminary data presented in June at the ADA 2019 Scientific Sessions in San Francisco. Those data revealed very low abnormal GlycoMark test results were correlated with patients compliant with prescribed SGLT-2 and achieved the desired effect.
The new study “GLYCOMARK 1,5-ANHYDROGLUCITOL AS A BIOMARKER OF SGLT2 INHIBITOR EFFECT” will be on display in the Madrid Marriott Auditorium Hotel and Conference Center on October 8 and attended by GlycoMark Clinical Affairs and study co-author, Jeff Dahlen, Ph.D. from 4 - 7 p.m. For interviews or to schedule a meeting with investigators or GlycoMark, please email GlycoMark@L3healthcare.com.
