Global epidemic

Over 400 million people are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and the disease causes over 5 millions deaths each year. Diet and exercise alone are inadequate to treat the disease and patients need on average a new intervention with glucose-lowering agents every 3-4 years in order to achieve control. Successful treatment of T2D therefore requires a constant supply of new drugs.
