Transcript of this video segment:

Steve Freed: ADA is coming up next month. Is there anything that you’re looking forward to as far as announcements that you consider exciting?

Richard Pratley: There will a lot of exciting data from large clinical trials. I’m presenting at the DEVOTE symposium where we’re going to presenting the results of a cardiovascular outcome study with the insulin degludec that’s very interesting because it was the first study that compared a basal insulin with insulin glargine standard of care. There’s also going to be data on the CANVAS study, I believe, released, which is another SGLT-2 inhibitor looking at cardiovascular outcomes and I am also presenting follow up data from the LEADER study, the cardiovascular outcomes study with liraglutide. I think there are a lot of existing data that will be presenting at the ADA that will have impact on the practice of diabetes management.

Steve Freed: Thank you for joining us today and enjoy the rest of your stay here.
