INGELHEIM, Germany & INDIANAPOLIS, US--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For Non-US and Non-UK Media. Boehringer Ingelheim (BI) and Eli Lilly and Company today announced new data1 from a Phase IV study evaluating linagliptin (5 mg) as monotherapy and in combination with metformin (1500 or 2000 mg) in treatment-naive adults with newly diagnosed (<12 months) uncontrolled Type 2 Diabetes (T2D). The result showed that linagliptin as monotherapy or in initial combination with metformin achieved clinically significant improvements in glucose control in patients with newly diagnosed T2D and marked hyperglycaemia. Results also showed both treatments provided statistically significant reductions in blood glucose levels, with the combination therapy having greater glucose reduction compared to monotherapy. The results were presented during the 2013 World Diabetes Congress, which is being held 2-6 December in Melbourne, Australia.
