I often visit the health site of Web Pro News/ Science as many authors write interesting articles on new discoveries and inventions on different fields. Recently, Sean Patterson has posted an article where he reported that a new medicine to treat diabetic patients has been discovered by some health experts. He has described the report in short and I will share that important information with other readers through this article.
The FDA Committee in the US has recently approved that the newly discovered medicine, canagliflozin can be used to treat type 2 diabetes symptoms in adults. The advisory committee for FDA for Metabolic and Endrocrinologic drugs has voted for the drug and has approved it. Johnson & Johnson has introduced this new drug in market giving a trade name, Invokana. This is one of the new type drugs for diabetes being introduced in America. It works as both glucose transporter and an inhibitor that prevents re-absorption of blood glucose by Kidney that influence glucose extraction lowering glucose level in blood. Patients suffering from type 2 diabetes have a kidney that can absorb more amount of glucose than normal.
Doctor Peter Stein one of the representatives from Johnson& Johnson commented, “We are pleased with the positive recommendation from the committee and look forward to working with the FDA to bring this important new therapy to patients in the U.S. to help them manage their type 2 diabetes”
The experts of the organization are happy to know that the members of the committee have approved the drug. They are planning to work further with FDA experts so that they can introduce the new medicine to patients across the world through this platform. They are of the opinion that this drug will help type 2 diabetic patients to manage critical situation.
FDA approved the drug after following the level 3 clinical trail that was presented in a diabetes conference in 2012. The result proved it that the drug improves glycemic level in individuals and helps in reducing excessive weight and abnormal blood pressure.
It is good to know that diabetic patients can now use drugs safely. We must visit such sites often to know about other such important discoveries. Sites like this keep updating us and introduce us with the unknowns.
