    Novo, Sanofi go head to head as FDA clears new diabetes drugs

    Post by graham64 on Wed Nov 30 2016, 22:06

    Rivals Novo Nordisk and Sanofi have won U.S. approval for new combination drugs to treat diabetes, sparking a fresh battle for sales in a fiercely competitive market.

    Novo's Xultophy and Sanofi's Soliqua both combine a long-lasting insulin with a so-called GLP-1 medicine that stimulates insulin production in the pancreas.

    Officials at the Danish and French companies said on Tuesday the rival treatments would be sold at discounts to the combined price of the component ingredients.

    The combination products are viewed by analysts as having substantial sales potential and the two drugmakers hope they will boost revenue at a time when insulin prices are under intense pressure in the key U.S. market, the world's biggest.
