Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Understanding

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy: Overview

Diabetic neuropathy is nerve damage caused by diabetes. When it affects the arms, hands, legs and feet, it is known as diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is different from peripheral arterial disease (poor circulation), which affects the blood vessels rather than the nerves. Three different groups of nerves can be affected by diabetic neuropathy:

  • Sensory nerves, which enable people to feel pain, temperature and other sensations
  • Motor nerves, which control the muscles and give them their strength and tone
  • Autonomic nerves, which allow the body to perform certain involuntary functions, such as sweating
Diabetic peripheral neuropathy does not emerge overnight. Instead, it usually develops slowly and worsens over time. Some patients have this condition long before they are diagnosed with diabetes. Having diabetes for several years may increase the likelihood of having diabetic neuropathy. The loss of sensation and other problems associated with nerve damage make a patient prone to developing skin ulcers (open sores) that can become infected and may not heal. This serious complication of diabetes can lead to loss of a foot, a leg or even a life.


If a person has peripheral neuropathy, his/her feet, legs, hands, or arms may feel:

  • burning
  • tingling, like “pins and needles”
  • numb
  • painful
  • weak
The person may feel extreme pain in feet, legs, hands, and arms, even when they are touched lightly. They may also have problems sensing pain or temperature in these parts of their body. Symptoms are often worse at night. Most of the time, the patients will have symptoms on both sides of their body.


To diagnose diabetic peripheral neuropathy, the foot and ankle surgeon will obtain the patient's history of symptoms and will perform simple in-office tests on the feet and legs. This evaluation may include assessment of the patient's reflexes, ability to feel light touch and ability to feel vibration. In some cases, additional neurologic tests may be ordered.


First and foremost, treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy centers on control of the patient's blood sugar level. In addition, various options are used to treat the painful symptoms. Medications are available to help relieve specific symptoms, such as tingling or burning. Sometimes a combination of different medications is used. In some cases, the patient may also undergo physical therapy to help reduce balance problems or other symptoms.

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Emerging Drugs

CNV2197944: Convergence Pharmaceuticals

This compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzenesulfonamides. These are organic compounds containing a sulfonamide group that is S-linked to a benzene ring. It is a N type calcium channel antagonists. It is in phase 2 of clinical trials for diabetic neuropathies.

FE-SYHA1402: CSPC ZhongQi Pharmaceutical Technology Co., Ltd.

ZhongQi Pharmaceutical Technology is conducting a multiple doses study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (including food effect) of SYHA1402 in healthy subjects. This study consists of two parts: The objective of the food effect study (Part 1) is to investigate the effect of food on the pharmacokinetic profiles of SYHA1402 tablets under fed and fasted conditions following the oral administration of SYHA1402. The primary objective of the multiple doses study (Part 2) is to investigate safety, tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of SYHA1402 in healthy subjects following oral administration of Multiple rising doses. Secondary objectives are the exploration of pharmacokinetics (PK) following multiple oral doses.

VM202: Helixmith

VM202 (donaperminogene seltoplasmid) is a first-in-class, proprietary, non-viral, potentially regenerative plasmid DNA gene therapy. VM202 is a novel genomic cDNA hybrid human hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) gene with a novel and proprietary coding sequence (HGF-X7) expressing two isoforms - a configuration that closely mimics HGF productions in humans that is needed for optimal therapeutic benefits. Because there is no change in the coding region of the HGF gene, HGF proteins generated from VM202 are identical to wildtype human HGF proteins.

NYX-2925: Aptinyx

NYX-2925 is a novel, oral small molecule NMDA receptor modulator in development for the treatment of chronic pain. Dysregulation of glutamatergic circuits in the brain is involved in the development of centralized chronic pain. NYX-2925 is in late stage clinical development across two chronic pain indications -Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy and Fibromyalgia.

LX9211: Lexicon Pharmaceuticals
LX9211 is a potent, orally delivered, selective small molecule inhibitor of AAK1, a target discovered and extensively characterized in an alliance with Bristol Myers Squibb. Preclinical data demonstrated central nervous system penetration and reduction in pain behavior in models of neuropathic pain. Lexicon has exclusive research, development and commercialization rights to LX9211 and additional compounds acting through AAK1.

Diepalrestat choline: NeuromaxBionevia

BNV-222 (diepalrestat choline), is a potential first-in-class, disease-modifying treatment for slowing or arresting diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). In 2010, Bioneva signed a license agreement with Neuromax, (biotech portfolio company of Maxwell Biotech, a Russian venture fund) for marketing rights to BVN-222 in Russia. BNV-222 is a cocrystal of epalrestat, an aldose reductase inhibitor (ARI)

Report Highlights

  • The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy.
  • In August 2020, Sonnet BioTherapeutics signed a Letter of Intent for potential licensing of neuropathies asset to new Life Therapeutics. It has executed a letter of intent to negotiate an agreement to license its SON-081 and SON-080 assets, both low-dose formulations of Interleukin 6 (IL-6), for diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) and chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) to New Life Therapeutics of Singapore.
  • In August 2020, Kineta got Clinical Trial Application (CTA) approval in the Netherlands for initiation of a first in-human clinical trial of KCP506. KCP506 is a first-in-class a9a10 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) antagonist in development for the treatment of chronic neuropathic pain. KCP506 may potentially be an effective treatment for many types of chronic neuropathic pain including radiculopathy, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy and diabetic neuropathy.
