GLP-1R & glaucoma

A popular class of diabetes medications called

GLP-1R agonists may also protect against

glaucoma in people with diabetes.

Researchers from the Scheie Eye Institute at

the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School

of Medicine examined retrospective data of 1,961

people with diabetes new to GLP-1R agonists

(Trulicity and Rybelsus) and matched them to 4,371

unexposed control subjects. After 150 days on

average, 10 people in the medicated group were

newly diagnosed with glaucoma compared to 58

patients in the control group. This suggests that

GLP-1R agonists may decrease a person's risk of

developing glaucoma by half.

The findings were published in the British

Journal of Ophthalmology. To read the study,

Rapid action from Insulet

Insulet Corporation with its Omnipod brand of products has

announced FDA clearance for use of Eli Lilly and Company's

Lyumjev with Insulet's Omnipod and Omnipod DASH insulin

management systems. Insulet is the only insulin pump

manufacturer in the United States to obtain this indication

so far.

Lyumjev, approved by the FDA in June 2020, is a formulation

of insulin lispro developed by Eli Lilly and Company to speed

the absorption of insulin into the blood stream. As a rapidacting

insulin, Lyumjev helps control glucose levels after meals

in adults with diabetes, so it more closely matches a body's

typical insulin response to a meal.

The FDA has approved an expanded label for the rapidacting

insulin to include administration through continuous

subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) with an insulin pump,

providing more options for people with diabetes to manage

their glucose levels and reduce post-meal elevations. Omnipod

is the only insulin pump cleared for use with Lyumjev in the

United States.

Diabeloop in

the USA

Paris-based Diabeloop develops an

automated insulin delivery (AID)

system that deployed throughout

Europe this past year, making it

commercially available in Germany,

the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and

Switzerland, with more countries to

come. The interoperable controller

can be used in combination with the

Dexcom G6 CGM and Accu-Chek

Insight insulin pump and will soon

be available with ViCentra's Kaleido

patch-like pump.

The company is now seeking to

build upon its commercialization

efforts by entering into the American

market with a US-based team

established to support future FDA

applications. The company was also

invited into the American Association

of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE)

corporate advisory program,

increasing access to diabetes leaders

and offering strong relationships

with other diabetes partners in the

United States.

AACE director of relationships,

Glenn Sebold, commented: "We are

thrilled to welcome Diabeloop to our

Corporate AACE Partnership (CAP)

program. Our mission at AACE is

elevating clinical endocrinology to

improve global health, and our CAP

program supports this by ensuring

there is an open dialogue between

industry and our association to

advance patient care and find ways

we can improve."

Diabeloop's co-CEO Marc Julien

said the company believes that

working with US-based physicians,

patient organizations and partners is

key to penetrating the market, "We

are honoured to join the AACE CAP

programme. Diabeloop is dedicated

to bringing individualized, easy-touse diabetes

management solutions

to patients. We have built a dedicated

team based locally to accurately

understand the market."

Senior VP of North America, Zoe

Heineman, will lead Diabeloop's

newly formed U.S. team. She adds,

"Diabeloop is becoming known in

the US for being able to do more

for even the most complex cases

of diabetes with personalized

parameters available in our CEmarked

interoperable icontroller,

which runs self-learning insulin

delivery algorithms using an iCGM

and an ACE pump."

Marc Julien (CEO Diabeloop).
