  • Further development of ultra-rapid-acting insulin aspart (FIAsp:NN1218) into phase 3 development, following successful completion of phase 1 proof-of-concept trials
  • Completion of IDegLira phase 3a program based on positive results from DUAL II and, earlier reported DUAL I, trials that document efficacy, safety and convenience of IDegLira in diabetes patients previously inadequately controlled on basal insulin plus 1-2 OADs at all stages of disease. IDegLira is a fixed-ratio combination of the ultra-long acting basal analogue, Tresiba (degludec), and the once-daily GLP-1 agonist, Victoza (liraglutide).
  • Discontinuation of an inflammation project (NN8555) in phase 2a evaluation for Crohn's disease, due to immunogenicity findings
