Check out what Xeris Pharmaceuticals is working on!  And their latest good news.


The global diabetes epidemic is presenting enormous challenges for health care models around the world. While much of the focus remains on tight glycemic control, increased attention is being paid to the associated problems of hypoglycemia in these patients. Xeris is addressing both of these issues with the development of a stable, non-aqueous, injectable glucagon. Xeris has already developed a room-temperature-stable formulation which is being leveraged for multiple opportunities ranging from rescue pens for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia to pump-based formulations for use in an artificial pancreas.

Read about the research.

Sounds like some great progress you guys are going. You mention room temperature stable, does that mean outside for example you are still working on a formulation which will be stable for the high variances of everyday life etc? is there an eta on this kind of progress? and also in regards to "stable" at room temperature, how long a time is it usually stable for, or is it permanently stable at room temperature without the need for external cooling?
