FORMER MP NAMED VP

CHRISTMAS TIPS FROM IDDT

Sanofi will focus less on diabetes

monitoring devices, Chief Executive

Officer Olivier Brandicourt said at the

end of October (2015) after projecting

disappointing sales for the company's

treatments for the disease, including

two new products. Sanofi projects that

diabetes sales will probably decline 4-8%

annually through 2018. The company said

that demand for its product Lantus, the

world's best-selling insulin, was slumping.

Its two new drugs -- Afrezza, an inhalable

insulin, and Lyxumia, an injectable drug --

are struggling as well.

Brandicourt told analysts on a

conference call that half of the sales

forecast revision is related to "lower-thanexpected penetration of both Afrezza

and Lyxumia, as well as a deprioritization

of blood-glucose monitoring systems,"

The other half is linked to dimmer

prospects for Lantus, which faces generic

competition, the CEO said. Sanofi can still

count on Toujeo, a successor to Lantus,

and on LixiLan, a combination of Lantus

and Lyxumia, to help sustain sales in the

years to come, Brandicourt said. Sanofi

is expected to file LixiLan for approval by

U.S. regulators this quarter. Sanofi had

entered the blood test meter market by

buying the MyStar brand which included

MyStar Extra and IBGStar.

Adrian Sanders (pictured above), is a former MP and chair of the All-Party Parliamentary

Group on Diabetes, and newly-elected councillor in Devon, has been named a VicePresident

of JDRF. He joins Dame Susan Hampshire as a Vice President and brings a

wealth of experience with him as he's lived with Type 1 diabetes for 25 years. He was the

Member of Parliament for Torbay from 1997 until 2015. As a MP, Adrian was instrumental

in bringing Type 1 diabetes to the political table raising awareness of Type 1 and Type

2 diabetes, and promoting engagement between parliamentarians, clinicians, relevant

organisations and patients. Saunders says, "I am delighted and honoured to become

a Vice-President of JDRF. This is a charity close to my heart - as well as living with the

condition, I have been campaigning for improvements in diabetes care and research

throughout my parliamentary career."

SLOW SALES

FOR SANOFI

Living with diabetes at Christmas is not straight forward as it should be a time for treats

and a bit of over-indulgence but it's also a time of temptation, unpredictable or delayed

meals, extra nibbles, excitement and stress, all of which can lead to extremely variable

blood sugars. The IDDT charity has an information pack that includes 'Christmas Tips'

to make life a little easier over the festivities. It's available free of charge to readers. Just
