FDA Advisory Committee Vote: Invokana Should Be Approved

Not terribly surprising — and we still need to wait for a full commission vote, but in as few as six weeks’ time, Januvia should prepare to compete head to head with Invokana.

The FDA Advisory Panel just voted, 10-5, to recommend that FDA approve this new drug candidate for adults with Type-2 diabetes.

Beware what that portends for Januvia — and Whitehouse Station. This is now Merck’s biggest selling franchise.
