Wegovy Label Analysis; Novo Investor Event Highlights
Here is a brief preview of this blast: Today, Novo Nordisk hosted an investor call following its announcement late Friday (June 4) that FDA approved 2.4mg semaglutide, branded as “Wegovy,” for the treatment of obesity. The approval was based on results from the STEP Ph3a clinical trial program which demonstrated 17% weight loss after 104 weeks with 40% of patients losing ≥20 of their body weight after 104 weeks. Importantly, Novo intends to quickly launch Wegovy starting on June 10, 2021. Below, FENIX provides a Wegovy label analysis including thoughts on Novo's decision to launch the product in five single-use autoinjector pens.
