Oral Semaglutide + Basal Insulin (PIONEER 8) Positive Topline Results

Novo Nordisk announced positive topline results from PIONEER 8 which evaluated oral semaglutide vs. placebo on background basal insulin. FENIX has updated the PIONEER results summary table which now includes data from data from PIONEER 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 10. The last 2 studies in the PIONEER program, PIONEER 6 (CVOT), and PIONEER 9 (monotherapy in Japanese subjects) are projected to read out by YE ’18. Below, FENIX provides thoughts on why PIONEER 8 is anticipated to be a highly impactful study given recent changes to the ADA/EASD guidelines that recommend GLP-1RA before basal insulin.
