Datapoint: Jardiance Catches Up With Farxiga in Heart Failure
The FDA last week approved Eli Lilly and Boehringer Ingelheim’s SGLT2 inhibitor Jardiance for the treatment of heart failure in patients with reduced ejection fraction, regardless of diabetic status. Jardiance is the second SGLT2 inhibitor to snag this indication, behind AstraZeneca’s Farxiga. For the treatment of chronic heart failure under the pharmacy benefit, Farxiga holds covered or better status for 92% of all insured lives.
