Saturday, 14 Jun 2014 11:30am EDT 

Novo Nordisk A/S:Says its diabetes drug Victoza appears to be an effective weight loss therapy, as demonstrated by data from a late-stage clinical trial presented on June 14.In the 56-week study of 846 overweight or obese adults with type 2 diabetes, a daily injection of 3 milligrams of Victoza led to significantly greater weight loss than did a placebo.Patients taking the 3 mg dose of the drug, known chemically as liraglutide, had a mean loss of 5.9 percent of body weight.That compared with a loss of 4.6 percent for a 1.8 mg dose and just 2 percent loss for those who got a placebo.All patients were also put on a diet and exercise program.The results were presented at the American Diabetes Association meeting in San Francisco.
