Eli Lilly announced the launch of Trulicity (dulaglutide) pen indicated as adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes.

Trulicity pen is intended for once-weekly dosing and does not require the patient to mix, measure, or handle the needle. It contains dulaglutide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist, which increases intracellular cyclic AMP (cAMP) in beta cells leading to glucose-dependent insulin release. Dulaglutide also decreases glucagon secretion and slows gastric emptying.
