Novo Nordisk announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Fiasp® (fast-acting insulin aspart), a new fast-acting mealtime insulin, for the treatment of adults with diabetes. The FDA’s decision comes after Fiasp® in clinical trials demonstrated benefits for people in need of improved overall glucose control.

Fiasp® is an innovative formulation of insulin aspart (NovoLog®) developed with the aim of obtaining pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties that more closely match the natural physiological insulin mealtime response of a person without diabetes.

In clinical trials Fiasp® demonstrated clinically relevant improvement in long-term glucose level (HbA1c). These results were achieved with a comparable overall rate of severe or blood-sugar confirmed hypoglycaemia, between Fiasp® and insulin aspart.
