Disappointing Results for GSK’s New Type 2 Diabetes Drug Albiglutide (Tanzeum)


Results showed a reduction in HbA1c of 0.78% for patients receiving albiglutide compared to a reduction of 0.99% for liraglutide. While albiglutide did demonstrate a statistically significant reduction in HbA1c from baseline (p<0.001), it did not meet the pre-specified primary endpoint of non-inferiority to liraglutide (95% CI: 0.08 – 0.34%).

Detailed analysis of the full data set from this study will be conducted in the coming months and the data will be submitted for presentation at a scientific meeting in 2012. In addition, initial results from the remaining seven Phase III studies will become available over the course of the next several months. An update on the clinical development program will be the subject of a future announcement when a more complete view of the program is available (expected in mid 2012).
