Datapoint: FDA Approves Lilly’s Interchangeable Insulin
The FDA on Nov. 16 granted Eli Lilly’s Rezvoglar, a biosimilar to Sanofi’s insulin Lantus, interchangeability with its reference product. This approval marks the second interchangeable copy of Lantus — Viatris and Biocon Biologics’ Semglee hit the market in November 2021. For the treatment of type 2 diabetes, Semglee currently holds covered or better status for 60% of all insured lives, to Lantus’ 71%.
