Novo Nordisk announced the submission to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of a New Drug Application (NDA) for faster-acting insulin aspart for the treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

The NDA submission is based on results from the clinical trial program that evaluated the safety and efficacy of mealtime and after-meal faster-acting insulin aspart in approximately 2,100 adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Faster-acting insulin aspart is an investigational mealtime insulin which contains a short-acting insulin with a vitamin and an amino acid excipient for faster initial absorption rate and earlier glucose lowering effect.

Novo Nordisk intends to develop the faster-acting insulin aspart in a pre-filled delivery device FlexTouch and a 10mL vial upon approval.
