Novo Nordisk announced that it has received US FDA approval for Victoza® (liraglutide) for the treatment of type 2 diabete in adults.

Victoza® is the brand name approved in the US and Europe for liraglutide, the first once-daily human Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. In the US, Victoza® is indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes.

Novo Nordisk expects to introduce Victoza® in the US market within weeks.
