New Novo CVOT strategy; ADA ’18 Analyst Briefing

Novo hosted its annual ADA analyst briefing (presentation slides), predominantly discussing oral semaglutide. Of note, Novo disclosed they are no longer conducting a large-scale CVOT for Ozempic (formerly SOUL), instead leveraging the results of both SUSTAIN 6 and PIONEER 6 between injectable and oral semaglutide. Novo senior management said they believe it will be difficult for PIONEER 6 to demonstrate CV benefit at p < 0.05 given the low number of pre-specified events will require a large reduction in the hazard ratio. Additionally, Novo stated they plan to file oral semaglutide in mid-2019. Below are highlights from the ADA analyst event including three potential scenarios for injectable and oral semaglutide CV indications.
