Friday’s Daily Piece: Novel Once Weekly Insulin As Safe and Effective as Daily Insulin Glargine

A novel once weekly insulin, insulin icodec, (an experimental basal insulin analogue) was found to be as safe and effective as once daily insulin glargine in a Phase 2 trial. No study participants had previously received long term insulin treatment. The 250 study participants were on metformin with or without a DPP-IV inhibitor, and with hemoglobin A1c (A1c) above 7%. A similar drop in A1c was seen in both groups as well as both groups had low incidence of clinically significant or severe hypoglycemia. To learn more, please click below.
