Novo Nordisk - Oral semaglutide demonstrates greater reductions in HbA1c and body weight and comparable number of adverse events vs dulaglutide in Japanese people with type 2 diabetes

Bagsværd, Denmark, 20 September 2018 - Novo Nordisk today announced the headline results from PIONEER 10, a phase 3a trial with oral semaglutide vs once-weekly subcutaneous dulaglutide, both in combination with one oral antidiabetic drug in Japanese adults with type 2 diabetes. Oral semaglutide is an investigational GLP-1 analogue taken once daily as a tablet. The trial investigated the safety, tolerability and efficacy of 3, 7 and 14 mg oral semaglutide compared with 0.75 mg once-weekly dulaglutide in 458 Japanese people with type 2 diabetes. Prior to enrolment, participants were inadequately controlled on one oral antidiabetic drug.

The trial achieved its primary objective by demonstrating a comparable number of adverse events with oral semaglutide compared to 0.75 mg dulaglutide. The proportion of people treated with 3, 7 and 14 mg oral semaglutide who experienced gastro-intestinal adverse events were 31%, 39% and 54%, respectively, compared to 40% with dulaglutide; the most frequently reported events being constipation and nausea. The proportion of people who discontinued treatment due to adverse events was between 3% and 6% of people treated with oral semaglutide, compared to 3% of people treated with dulaglutide.

Two distinct statistical approaches to evaluating the efficacy of oral semaglutide vs dulaglutide were applied in the PIONEER 10 trial; a primary statistical approach[1] evaluating the effect regardless of discontinuation of treatment and use of rescue medication, and a secondary statistical approach[2] describing the effect while on treatment and without use of rescue medication.

When applying the primary statistical approach, statistically significantly greater reductions in HbA1c and body weight were seen with oral semaglutide 14 mg than 0.75 mg dulaglutide at week 52.

When applying the secondary statistical approach, from a baseline of 8.3%, people treated with 14 mg oral semaglutide experienced a statistically significantly greater reduction in HbA1c of 1.8% compared to 1.3% with 0.75 mg dulaglutide after 52 weeks. The reductions in HbA1c were 0.7% and 1.4% for people treated with 3 and 7 mg oral semaglutide, respectively. Reductions in body weight from baseline were also statistically significantly greater with 14 mg oral semaglutide at week 52, with a reduction of 1.9 kg compared to a weight gain of 1.1 kg with dulaglutide. People treated with 3 and 7 mg oral semaglutide experienced a weight gain of 0.1 kg and weight reduction of 1.0 kg, respectively.

In addition, applying the secondary statistical approach, The Japanese Diabetes Society (JDS) treatment target of HbA1c below 6.5% was achieved by 21%, 43% and 58% of people on treatment with 3, 7 and 14 mg oral semaglutide, respectively, compared to 41% of the people treated with 0.75 mg dulaglutide.

"Many people with type 2 diabetes in Japan remain uncontrolled on oral antidiabetic treatments," said Mads Krogsgaard Thomsen, executive vice president and chief science officer of Novo Nordisk. "When adding oral semaglutide to the treatment of this group of people, this study has demonstrated that oral semaglutide is both well tolerated and more efficacious compared to subcutaneous dulaglutide."

About PIONEER 10 and the PIONEER clinical trial programme

PIONEER 10 was a 57-week, randomised, open-label, active-controlled, parallel-group, multi-centre, single country trial with four treatment arms comparing the safety, tolerability and efficacy of 3, 7 and 14 mg oral semaglutide with 0.75 mg dulaglutide (the approved dose by the Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) in Japan) in Japanese people with type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled with one oral antidiabetic drug (sulfonylurea, glinide, thiazolidinedione, alpha-glucosidase inhibitor or sodium glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitor). PIONEER 10 randomised 458 people in a 2:2:2:1 manner to receive either a dose of oral semaglutide 3, 7 or 14 mg once daily or 0.75 mg dulaglutide once weekly. The primary endpoint was the number of adverse events during exposure to the drug, assessed up to 57 weeks. Key secondary endpoints included the change from baseline to week 26 and 52 in HbA1c and change from baseline to week 26 and 52 in body weight.

The PIONEER phase 3a clinical development programme for oral semaglutide is a global development programme with enrolment of 8,845 people with type 2 diabetes across 10 clinical trials, which are all expected to complete in 2018.
