Shares of Lexicon Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: LXRX) saw a handy gain on Friday after latestage results came out. The company announced that its pivotal inTandem1 Phase 3 clinical trial of sotagliflozin met its primary endpoint showing a statistically significant reduction in A1C at 24 weeks in patients with type 1 diabetes on a background of optimized insulin.

In the trial, the statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in A1C for both doses of sotagliflozin was achieved without an increase in severe hypoglycemia, one of the most prevalent serious health challenges in type 1 diabetes, which was seen less frequently in both treatment arms than placebo.
