Novo Nordisk released the following information regarding Victoza: β€œThe European Commission has granted marketing authorization for Victoza for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in adults. The authorization covers all 27 European Union member states.”

"Victoza is the brand name for lireaglutide, the first once-daily human Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Victoza works by stimulating the release of insulin only when blood sugar levels are high. Weight loss with Victoza is attributed to the fact that it slows gastric emptying and leads to increased satiety after meals. Victoza is naturally broken down in the body and does not require renal excretion.”

"This is an important milestone for Novo Nordisk and for the treatment of type 2 diabetes," says Mads Krogsgaard Thomsen, executive vice president of Novo Nordisk. "In clinical studies involving more than 6,500 people with type 2 diabetes, Victoza has been shown to have a significant blood glucose-lowering effect and lead to weight loss, while having a low risk of hypoglycemia. On this background, we are convinced that Victoza is a valuable new treatment option for people with type 2 diabetes."

There is a new treatment available on European markets for those with Type 2 diabetes. The pharmaceutical company, Novo Nordisk has made a once-daily injectable treatment, liraglutide (brand name Victoza). When blood sugar levels are above normal, liraglutide helps to release insulin to control Type 2 diabetes. This treatment had been proven reduces blood pressure and stimulate beta cells, which produce insulin in the pancreas. The Care Advisor at health charity Diabetes UK, spoke in favor of liraglutide, saying: "Liraglutide widens the choice of treatments for people with Type 2 diabetes that not only offer improved blood glucose control but also aid weight loss. In addition, research has shown that this treatment has a positive effect on blood pressure levels.”
