FDA approves Adlyxin for type 2 diabetes

July 28, 2016

The FDA has approved the once-daily glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist Adlyxin, a once-daily injection to improve glycemic control along with diet and exercise in adults with type 2 diabetes, Sanofi announced in a press release.

"The approval of Adlyxin reaffirms our continued commitment to addressing the challenges faced by people living with diabetes when trying to reach and maintain their individual blood glucose (HbA1c) targets," Peter Guenter, executive vice president and head of the global diabetes and cardiovascular business unit at Sanofi, said in the release. "We are pleased with this approval, as it offers us the opportunity to continue helping patients treated with basal insulin who remain uncontrolled."
