About 415 million adult people in the world are living with diabetes, with Type 2 diabetes accounting for 90 – 95 percent of all cases. This number is projected to increase to 642 million people by 20401. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic, progressive condition and long-term complications include stroke, heart attack and cardiovascular death as well as diabetic kidney disease, retinopathy, arm and leg amputations and autonomic neuropathy. In addition to the now marketed products from our own R&D, and basal insulin from our alliance partner Eli Lilly and Company, we are also focused on cardiometabolic indications with a high unmet medical need.
