Diabetes drug developer Lumena raises $2.5M; compound regulates blood sugar
February 21, 2012
Diabetes treatment developer Lumena Pharmaceuticals has secured the $2 million it needs to start clinical trials and a little bit extra for good measure.
The company’s first round of investment was oversubscribed, leading to a haul of $2.5 million, according to amended filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Lumena’s investors are venture capital firms Pappas Ventures and RiverVest Venture Partners. The new capital means the company can proceed to human tests for its novel type 2 diabetes treatment, which aims to develop a pill to help patients regulate their blood sugar.
