英文原文:Novo Nordisk to launch insulin injection Tresiba in India

MUMBAI: World's largest insulin player Novo Nordisk today said it is launching long-lasting insulin injection Tresiba in the country soon.

"Tresiba (insulin degludec)-- a new basal insulin for adult patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes to be available in India as a new treatment option. We are through with clinical trials and have received the necessary approvals. We hope to launch it by the end of this year," Novo Nordisk India Managing Director Melvin D'souza told reporters here.

Tresiba is a once-daily basal insulin with a duration of action beyond 42 hours, allowing for flexibility in day-to-day dosing time when needed, without compromising efficacy or risk of hypoglycaemia.

"In the current insulin treatments, people with diabetes are required to take their long-acting insulin at around the same time each day.

"However, the mode of action of insulin degludec ensures that, on occasions when this is not possible, people with diabetes can alter the time they take their insulin without compromising their diabetes control or putting themselves at increased risk of hypoglycaemia," Novo Nordisk India Clinical Medical and Regulatory Director Raman Shetty said.

Tresiba will be made available in prefilled pen with an easy touch button, enabling doses of up to 80 units in a single injection. The pricing will be announced at the time of the launch, D'souza said.

Novo Nordisk India has 15 per cent market share in the diabetes care segment. The company is hopeful of growing at 15 per cent per annum in the domestic market, D'souza said.
