Novo Nordisk’s Weekly Icodec Injection Nears Approval in India

Jul 3, 2024

Novo Nordisk’s weekly injection insulin Icodec is reported as nearing approval in India following a 19 June 2024 recommendation by the Subject Expert Committee under India’s drug controller to permit the import and sale of the drug. 
This news follows the approval of Novo Nordisk’s Wegovy® in China for long-term weight management, targeting patients with a BMI of 30kg/m² and at least one weight-related comorbidity. The company also announced last month its plans for a $4.1 billion expansion of its US manufacturing capacity.
