Glucagon is a hormone medicine used in emergencies when a person with diabetes cannot take sugar orally to raise blood sugar. Lilly’s current glucagon treatment is a much more invasive injection that has to be assembled by adding liquid to powder in order to dissolve and activate the glucagon mixture.
Eli Lilly and Company has submitted a New Drug Application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and an EU Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for nasal glucagon. If the drug receives approval, it will be the first dry powder nasal spray on the market to treat severe hypoglycemia
Because glucagon is used in emergency situations to treat a severe episode of hypoglycemia, it ideally would be easier to administer. The nasal glucagon would be just that, less complicated and faster in the application.
The nasal dose fits in the palm of your hand and uses a small plunger on the bottom that when pressed releases the powder glucagon up one of the nostrils. The glucagon is immediately absorbed.
