This drug could be huge if cost is not through the roof. It should replace Byetta which is not used as much as it should be because of high cost ($350 for a 30 day supply in the US and a prescription required in the country purchased if out of US ). Also, Byetta is difficult to store and travel with as the pen is fairly unwieldy and can't get above 76 degrees. It looks like Lyxumia is in pill form once a day--should be a significant home run.
sorry-after further research, Lyxumia appears to be an injectable liquid that can be mixed with Lantus--not nearly as exciting as a pill would be. If it works better than Byetta and is cheaper, it will still be a hit--we shall see.
