August 2014 Report Highlights

  • Boston Therapeutics is focused on developing products that address the diabetes and inflammatory disease markets, employing novel complex carbohydrate chemistry (CCC) technology. The company’s portfolio includes two development-stage candidates—BTI-320 and Ipoxyn (and veterinary analog OxyFex)—and a marketed over-the-counter (OTC) dietary supplement called SugarDown®. The Company is positioned to benefit from two simultaneous paths to market—OTC and pharmaceutical drug development.

  • In August 2014, Boston Therapeutics reported revenue of $65,218 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, which was an increase over revenue of $25,454 for the comparable period a year ago. The improvement was due to an increase in sales in the second quarter 2014 versus the second quarter 2013 as well as a marketing incentive previously granted to a customer in 2013 that offset revenue during the first quarter 2013.

  • During the second quarter 2014, Boston Therapeutics made progress in several important areas. The company is working to increase awareness and sales of SugarDown® by leveraging the product’s clinical trial data, which has included entering into a strategic marketing relationship with Benchworks SD, LLC as well as commencing a Phase IIb confirmation study for SugarDown® in Type 2 diabetes patients. The study measures the impact of two doses of SugarDown® (versus a placebo) taken after meals for five weeks. Results are expected in 2014.

  • Boston Therapeutics further advanced its development efforts for BTI-320 by securing a supply of pharmaceutical-grade BTI-320 tablets in support of a 2015 Investigational New Drug (IND) filing and forthcoming Phase III trial. A Phase IIb study of BTI-320 in the U.S. completed patient enrollment in August 2014, with data expected by late 2014.

  • The company has also strengthened its core competency as an R&D organization by adding people to leadership and advisory boards who are skilled in biotechnology R&D, diabetes research, and carbohydrate chemistry. New additions include a past president of the Canadian Diabetes Association, the chair of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Wilkes University, and a past president of the American Diabetes Association, among others.

  • At June 30, 2014, Boston Therapeutics had a cash position of over $1.5 million, and currently seeks to raise up to $10 million per an August 2014 S-1 filing with the SEC.
