NASAL GLUCAGON COMING IN BED

WITH BRITVIC

Insulin supplier Lilly has developed a

nasal spray (intranasal glucagon) for the

emergency treatment of extremely low

blood sugar (e.g., coma, seizures). The

product has been submitted to regulatory

agencies and approval decisions in both

the US and Europe are expected in 2019.

The new glucagon powder is administered

like a nasal spray, without any need for

mixing or injections (as per current options

to deliver glucagon delivery kits). Intranasal

glucagon will be faster to administer,

less prone to errors, and will reduce fear

during hypo emergencies - leading to

a faster recovery and reduced medical

costs. In a trial, Lilly's nasal glucagon was

successful with 96% of people who were

treated with nasal glucagon by a caregiver

recovered within 30 minutes of treatment.

Lilly acquired the product from Locemia

in 2015

In an interessting move, Diabetes UK has

partnered with British company Britvic,

purveyor of soft drinks brands 7Up,

Gatorade, J20, Pepsi Max, Purdey's,

R Whites Lemonade, Robinsons and

Tango. You can see Diabetes UK's press

release by clicking HERE, and some

other reporting from THE DAILY MAIL,

as well as THE TIMES, and drinks

industry website JUST DRINKS.

As reported by Karen Hoggan Business

reporter for the BBC, breakfast cereal

brand Kellogg's will be put 'traffic light'

labelling on most of its packs sold in the

UK. The system, the UK government's

voluntary scheme, was introduced in

2013 and indicates how much salt, sugar

or fat foods contain. Kellogg's said it had

made the change after having listened to

consumers, government and retailers.

The traffic light system labels foods

green, amber or red, to help consumers

easily identify products that have low,

medium or high levels of salt, fat and

sugar. Kellogg's new labelling will start to

appear on brands including Coco Pops,

Crunchy Nut, Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies,

Frosties and Special K from January 2019.

The rollout will be complete by early 2020.

Many supermarkets have voluntarily

adopted the traffic light system for their

own brands, while rival cereal maker

Nestle introduced the 'traffic light' scheme

on its cereal brands including Shreddies

and Cheerios in 2017. Weetabix has used

it since 2016.
