On December 20, 2013, Eli Lilly and Company (Lilly) and Boehringer Ingelheim together announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted the filing of the New Drug Application (NDA) for LY2963016, an investigational basal (long-acting) insulin. Lilly informed that the LY2963016 is an insulin glargine product developed for the treatment of patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The Company added that the NDA was filed under the 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway, allowing the FDA to refer previous findings of safety and efficacy data for an already-approved insulin glargine product, in addition to studies of LY2963016. Lilly further stated that apart from comparative pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies, the NDA submission for LY2963016 includes results from Phase III studies, which were conducted in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, using a currently marketed insulin glargine product as the active comparator. Gwen Krivi, Ph.D., Vice President, Lilly Diabetes Product Development, said, "The US regulatory submission for our new insulin glargine product demonstrates our progress in bringing another option to the millions of Americans with diabetes who require long-acting insulin as an integral part of their treatment plan. This submission of the NDA for this product helps us realize the goal of the Lilly-Boehringer Ingelheim Diabetes alliance, which is to leverage our combined expertise to develop important treatments for people with diabetes."
