Information About Victoza Type 2 Diabetes Drug
Victoza was manufactured by the pharmaceutical company "Novo Nordisk" to treat patients with type 2 diabetes. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration originally approved it in 2010. Victoza has made Novo a lot of money since it first hit the pharmaceutical market – reaching $670 million in sales by 2011.
Some studies suggest that the FDA and Novo may have known about the risks associated with the drug prior to 2010. In clinical trials, patients developed conditions such as cancer, kidney failures and pancreatitis at a much higher rate than any other type 2 diabetes drug. One clinical safety reviewer who evaluated Victoza prior to FDA approval even commented that since there were already so many type 2 diabetes drugs on the market, there wasn’t much of a need or urgency to approve Victoza.
