Novo Discontinues its Dual/Triple Agonists for Obesity; Novo Q2 ’20 Earnings Update

Novo Nordisk hosted its Q2 ’20 earnings call (press release; slides) and provided updates to its diabetes, obesity, and NASH clinical and commercial activities, but much of the discussion was focused on Novo’s obesity portfolio. Importantly, Novo disclosed it has discontinued the development of its dual and triple agonists for the treatment of obesity following positive results from the recent semaglutide and AM833 data disclosures (semaglutide Ph3 STEP, Ph2 AM833, and Ph1 sema+AM833). Additionally, FENIX includes context from Novo’s invite-only R&D event on June 19 (view slides here). Below, FENIX provides highlights and insights from the call, including why it makes sense Novo would use its PRV for semaglutide in obesity.
