Tresiba® (insulin degludec injection U-100) demonstrated significantly lower rates of overall, nocturnal and severe hypoglycaemia vs insulin glargine U-100

New Orleans, US, 11 June 2016 - New findings from the two phase 3b SWITCH trials showed that treatment with long-acting basal insulin Tresiba® (insulin degludec injection U-100) resulted in significantly lower rates of overall, nocturnal and severe hypoglycaemia compared with insulin glargine U-100 (ref.1,2). Results from the SWITCH 1 and 2 trials, the first completed double-blinded basal insulin studies evaluating the safety profile and efficacy of Tresiba® versus insulin glargine U-100 (ref.1,2), were presented today at the American Diabetes Association 76th Scientific Sessions in New Orleans, US.
