Shares

According to a Novo Nordisk press release the company presented phase 2 proof-of-concept data for its investigational insulin degludec, an ultra-long-acting basal insulin, which demonstrated the potential to help achieve target glycemic control when used once daily or three times weekly. These data were presented at the 70th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) in Orlando FL.

These phase 2 studies showed that insulin degludec helped improve glucose control.In one study, after 16 weeks of treatment with insulin degludec, mean HbA1c reductions were similar across the once-daily and three-times-weekly insulin degludec groups (-1.3% and -1.5% respectively) and comparable to insulin glargine (-1.5%).

In this study, 77% of patients treated with insulin degludec three times weekly did not experience any confirmed hypoglycemia.
