There are about 90 million diabetes patients in today's China and 95% of them suffer from type 2 diabetes mellitus. And the number of potential patients might reach up to 200 million.

Entering China after 2000, insulin secretagogues agent is mainly used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Currently, there are only 3 kinds available in the Chinese market, namely, nateglinide, repaglinide and mitiglinide.

As the first new prandial glucose regulator, repaglinide belongs to the class of benzoic acid derivative. Containing a chiral carbon atom, it has stereoselective activity and can be absorbed well on an empty stomach or not. As repaglinide is expelled from the body with bile after being metabolized by CYP3A4 enzyme system in the liver and only 6% of it is excreted through kidney, it is more suitable for patients with kidney disorders. Hence its advantage in the clinic. In 2000, repaglinide of Novo Nordisk A/S came to be sold in China under the name of Novonorm. According to CRI's market survey, it has few rivals and takes up a market share of about 89% for sales value while its main competitor Hanson Pharmaceutical only occupies less than 11% of the market. The sales value of repaglinide in sample hospitals was about CNY 125 million in 2014 and CAGR during the period of 2005-2014 reached about 22%.
