“The EU marketing authorization for Toujeo represents a significant milestone for Sanofi, expanding our integrated portfolio of solutions for people with diabetes in Europe,” commented Pierre Chancel, Senior Vice-President, Global Diabetes, Sanofi. “Toujeo gives people with diabetes and their physicians a new option to manage their condition, and also reinforces our commitment to continue improving the quality of diabetes care.”
The European Commission’s decision to grant marketing authorization in Europe for Toujeo is based on results from the EDITION clinical trial program, a series of worldwide Phase III studies evaluating the efficacy and safety of Toujeo compared with Lantus (insulin glargine [rDNA origin] injection, 100 U/mL) in more than 3,500 adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes who were uncontrolled on their current therapy.
Blood sugar control with Toujeo was comparable to Lantus, with a favorable safety profile. The incidence of confirmed hypoglycemia was lower with Toujeo as compared to Lantus, both at any time of the day and at night, in people with type 2 diabetes. In people with type 1 diabetes, compared with Lantus, Toujeo also demonstrated more stable and more predictable glycemic control.
