AstraZeneca and Bristol-Myers Squibb today announced they have resubmitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a New Drug Application (NDA) for dapagliflozin for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes.

The NDA resubmission, which is pending acceptance by the FDA, includes several new studies and additional long-term data (up to four years' duration) from previously submitted studies.

NOTES TO EDITORS About dapagliflozin

Dapagliflozin, an investigational compound, is a selective and reversible inhibitor of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2), which works independently of insulin. It is currently approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in the European Union, Australia, Brazil, Mexico and New Zealand.

About Type 2 Diabetes

In 2012, diabetes was estimated to affect more than 370 million people worldwide. The prevalence of diabetes is projected to reach more than 550 million by 2030. Type 2 diabetes accounts for approximately 90 to 95% of all cases of diagnosed diabetes in adults. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease characterised by insulin resistance and dysfunction of beta cells in the pancreas, leading to elevated glucose levels. Over time, this sustained hyperglycemia contributes to further progression of the disease. Significant unmet needs still exist, as many patients remain inadequately controlled on their current glucose-lowering regimen.
