MBBP client Valeritas, Inc. has recently announced positive results for four studies on their flagship product. Valeritas is a commercial-stage medical technology company focused on developing innovative solutions to improve health and quality of life of people with Type 2 diabetes.
Their flagship product is the V-Go® Disposable Insulin Delivery Device which is a small, wearable, disposable insulin delivery solution for the delivery of basal-bolus insulin therapy in adults with Type 2 diabetes.
The four studies were as followed:
Study 1: Evaluating the Impact on Diabetes Control with V-Go® For Patients with Diabetes not Achieving Optimal Control: A Retrospective Cohort Analysis in a Large Endocrine and Specialized Diabetes System
Study 2: Evaluating V-Go® In Patients 65 Years of Age or Older with Poorly Controlled Diabetes: A Health Outcome and Economic Analysis from an Endocrine and Diabetes Specialty System
Study 3: Optimizing Insulin Therapy in Older Adults in Long-Term Care: A Com parative Retrospective Analysis of V-Go® vs. Standard of Care
Study 4: Improved Glycemic Control in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Switching to the V-Go® Insulin Delivery Device: A Prospective Study Utilizing Continuous Glucose Monitoring
These studies showed that when using, or switching to V-Go®, patients with diabetes experienced improved glycemic control, a reduction in A1C and cost savings when compared to comparison treatments. Overall, Dr. David Sutton remarks, “The studies that I am involved with provide data that continues to support the real-world clinical value of using V-Go® in patients that require insulin. Importantly, the data presented at ADA shows the value of V-Go® in older patients that require both a clinically-effective and cost-effective therapy.”
Great work, Valeritas, Inc.!
