About lixisenatide and Soliqua® 100/33

Lixisenatide is a Zealand-invented once-daily prandial GLP-1 receptor agonist for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Zealand licensed the global development and commercialization rights to lixisenatide to Sanofi. Lixisenatide is marketed under the brand name Lyxumia® in more than 45 countries and under the brand name Adlyxin® in the U.S.

Sanofi has developed a fixed-dose combination of lixisenatide and insulin glargine 100 units/ml (Lantus®), which is sold under the brand name Soliqua® 100/33 in the United States and Suliqua® in Europe.

Soliqua® 100/33 is approved in the United States as an adjunct therapy to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled on basal insulin (less than 60 units daily) or lixisenatide alone.
