Novo’s Oral Semaglutide Beats Victoza and Januvia

Novo Nordisk has announced topline results from the Ph3 PIONEER 4 (vs. 1.8mg Victoza) and PIONEER 7 (3, 7, and 14 mg oral sema dose escalation vs. Januvia) studies. Both trials met their primary outcomes (non-inferiority to Victoza and superiority to Januvia), and oral semaglutide also demonstrated statistically significant A1C and weight reduction vs. Victoza. Additionally, FENIX provides insight into a potential relationship between PIONEER 7 dose escalation and discontinuation rates observed in the reported PIONEER studies.
