Amylin Pharmaceuticals – New Version of Byetta

Amylin Pharmaceuticals Inc expects is new longer acting version of Byetta to be available this year.  The drug is called once-weekly exenatide and is being developed by Amylin and Eli Lilly & Co.

A new competitor of Byetta – Novo Nordisk’s Victoza, was approved by the FDA recently and that has given analysts more confidence in the approval of Exenatide.

The new once weekly exenatide is an injectable drug that lasts for a full week and has had impressive results in trials.
