The launch of the once-daily GLP-1R agonist Victoza from Novo Nordisk in 2010 boosted the market size to USD 1.7 billion last year. The unique characteristic of weight reduction as well as the profound blood glucose lowering effect without significant hypoglycemia made GLP-1R agonists to a strongly emerging antidiabetic drug class.
In addition to the three approved Byetta, Victoza and once-weekly Bydureon, the analysis of the GLP-1R agonist pipeline revealed 66 different active drug products in the R&D pipeline for metabolic diseases (diabetes/obesity) ranging from early research to approved products. However, 8 of the 66 are life cycle variations of exenatide, liraglutide and lixisenatide consisting in new formulations for slow release drug delivery (exenatide and liraglutide) and in fixed-ratio combinations with insulin (liraglutide and lixisenatide).
