Investigator Initiated Studies (IIS)

Xeris is a specialty pharmaceutical company committed to developing medications and supporting research to address unmet medical needs. We are currently focused in the therapeutic area of severe hypoglycemia.

Severe hypoglycemia is an emergency condition where very low blood sugar may lead to confusion, seizure, unconsciousness, and if left untreated, death. It requires immediate treatment with fast-acting carbohydrates or the use of glucagon.

Glucagon, when used in the form of the traditional powder glucagon emergency kit, requires multiple steps to prepare and administer successfully. This may make it difficult for a patient to receive a full dose of glucagon in an emergency situation.

Development of patient and caregiver tools

We are dedicated to developing tools for those living with diabetes and their caregivers that simplify the administration of a full dose of glucagon — to immediately and successfully treat severe hypoglycemia.

Independent research reviews and support

We offer the opportunity for external researchers interested in conducting their own research related to our current therapeutic areas of interest to submit an independent research concept. The concept is then reviewed by an internal review committee. Xeris may provide funding and other resources, such as clinical trial material, to support studies initiated and sponsored by external researchers.

If you are interested in submitting a concept related to liquid stable, ready‑to‑use glucagon, please contact:

Concepts will be prioritized based on scientific merit and relevance to the Xeris clinical and development program.
