Physicians’ Opinions Survey on FDA’s Bydureon Approval

Physicians were asked to assess their impressions of Bydureon in terms of efficacy, safety, tolerability, expected use, and other important factors. Key questions are broken down by specialty or familiarity to highlight difference in physician perceptions

Highlights

Datamonitor anticipates that the initial enthusiasm will ultimately be muted once physicians gain experience with the drug. Nevertheless, a once-weekly antidiabetic agent clearly represents an attractive option for type 2 diabetes patients, and physicians expect the drug to be a welcome addition to their armamentarium.

Global Diabetic Nephropathy Market 2014-2018

Diabetic nephropathy is a disease of the kidney glomerulus, which is caused by high blood sugar.
