novo nordisk a/s-b (NOVOB) Key Developments

Novo Nordisk Receives Positive Opinion from the European Regulatory Authorities for Saxenda® (Liraglutide 3 mg) for the Treatment of Obesity

Novo Nordisk announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) under the European Medicines Agency (EMA) adopted a positive opinion for the use of Saxenda® (liraglutide 3 mg) for the treatment of obesity. Saxenda®, the intended brand name of liraglutide 3 mg, is a once-daily glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue, with 97% homology to naturally occurring human GLP-1, a hormone involved in appetite regulation. The CHMP positive opinion recommends that Saxenda® will be indicated as an adjunct to a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity for weight management in adult patients with an initial Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 (obese), or 27 kg/m² to < 30 kg/m² (overweight) in the presence of at least one weight-related comorbidity such as dysglycaemia (pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes mellitus), hypertension, dyslipidaemia or obstructive sleep apnoea. The CHMP positive opinion is based on data from clinical trials of Saxenda®, including the phase 3 SCALETM clinical development programme, which involved more than 5,000 people with obesity (BMI 30 kg/m2), or who were overweight (BMI 27 kg/m2) with comorbidities. The company expected to receive marketing authorisation from the European Commission within two to three months. Subject to the Commission's approval Novo Nordisk expects to launch Saxenda® in several European markets starting in 2015.

Novo Nordisk to Launch Xultophy® (IDegLira) for People with Type 2 Diabetes

Novo Nordisk announced Switzerland as the first country to launch Xultophy® (IDegLira) for people with type 2 diabetes. Xultophy® is the first combination of a basal insulin [Tresiba® (insulin degludec)] and a GLP-1 analogue [Victoza® (liraglutide)]. Xultophy® is administered as a once-daily single injection independently of meals. It is intended for use in adults with type 2 diabetes that are inadequately controlled with oral glucose-lowering treatments when these are used alone or together with basal insulin. For people with type 2 diabetes uncontrolled on basal insulin, Xultophy® has demonstrated a significant 1.9% HbA1c reduction, mean weight loss of 2.7 kg and a low rate of hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) comparable to insulin degludec. Type 2 diabetes is a progressive disease, which often requires people to initiate and then intensify insulin treatment to achieve or maintain their glycaemic targets over time. Novo Nordisk expects to make Xultophy® available in other countries throughout Europe in 2015.

The Food and Drug Administration Approves Novo Nordisk Diabetes Drug as a Treatment for Obesity

The Food and Drug Administration has approved a Novo Nordisk diabetes drug as a treatment for obesity. It's the first injectable drug approved for weight loss. The drug, liraglutide, will be marketed under the brand name Saxenda for obese adults and for overweight adults who have weight-related health problems like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.
