Novo Nordisk announced on March 15 that the Chinese State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) has approved Victoza® for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Victoza® is the brand name for liraglutide, the first once-daily human Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue approved in China, developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in adults. Victoza® is indicated as an add-on to metformin or sulfonylurea (SU) in people with type 2 diabetes. "Diabetes is a rapidly growing disease in China, and Victoza® offers a unique treatment option by effectively reducing HbA1c and weight with a low risk of hypoglycaemia in people with type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled by oral anti-diabetic agents." Novo Nordisk expects to launch Victoza® in China in the second half of 2011. Available video includes Novo Nordisk headquarters shots, Victoza production and Victoza R&D shots.
