Data from One-Year Liraglutide Phase 3 Study Published Online in The Lancet
Date:9/25/2008

4.40 kg and 2.45+/-4.37 kg occurred with liraglutide 1.2 mg and 1.8 mg, respectively, versus a weight gain of 1.12+/-4.24 kg with glimepiride.

There were no major hypoglycemic episodes reported during the study. The rate of minor hypoglycemia was statistically significantly lower in both liraglutide dose groups compared with the glimepiride-treated group. The most common gastrointestinal-related adverse events with liraglutide were nausea, diarrhea and vomiting, and most were transient. Other adverse events reported included flu-like symptoms.

About Liraglutide

Liraglutide is a once-daily human analog of the naturally occurring hormone Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1). Liraglutide works by stimulating the release of insulin only when blood sugar levels become too high and by inhibiting appetite. On May 23, 2008, Novo Nordisk submitted a New Drug Application to the Food and Drug Administration in the United States as well as a marketing authorization application to the European Medicines Agency in Europe for the approval of liraglutide for the treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes. A New Drug Application was also submitted for approval in Japan on July 14, 2008.

About LEAD(TM) (Liraglutide Effect and Action in Diabetes)

The LEAD(TM) 3a program involved about 4000 patients with type 2 diabetes in 40 countries.

The data published early online and in an upcoming edition of The Lancet is from the LEAD(TM) 3 study, one of five randomized, controlled, double-blinded studies that make up the phase 3a program for liraglutide.

Data from the LEAD(TM) 3 study have previously been reported on by Novo Nordisk in a Stock Exchange Announcement on December 11, 2007, and in a press release on June 9, 2008, in connection with the American Diabetes Association meeting in San Francisco.

Novo Nordisk is a healthcare company with an 85-year history of innovation and achievement in diabetes care. The company has the broadest diabe
