Bagsvaerd, Denmark, Jul 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Novo Nordisk today announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) under the European Medicines Agency (EMA) adopted a positive opinion, recommending marketing authorisation for Xultophy® for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults.
Xultophy® is the intended brand name for IDegLira, the first once-daily single injection combination of Tresiba® (insulin degludec) and Victoza® (liraglutide), developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. The CHMP positive opinion recommends that Xultophy® will be indicated for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus to improve glycaemic control in combination with oral glucose-lowering medicinal products when these alone or combined with basal insulin do not provide adequate glycaemic control.
