CREDENCE Label Update for Invokana is a Big Win for Janssen
Here is a brief preview of this blast: Janssen announced FDA approval of a new Invokana indication to reduce the risk of kidney disease, CV death, and heart failure hospitalizations in T2DM patients who have diabetic nephropathy with albuminuria. Recall, FDA granted priority review to the CREDENCE sNDA shortening the review time to 6 months. CREDENCE is the second first-pass priority review approval in a row for diabetes following Novo’s Rybelsus (oral semaglutide) on Sept 20. Below, FENIX provides thoughts on the new indication and SGLT2i market implications with special attention to the Invokana HF indication.
