Should Novo Nordisk and Eli Lilly manage to get 10 million of 17 million Americans with severe obesity into medical treatment lasting at least two years, the obesity drug market could surpass DKK 500bn (USD 73.8bn) by 2030, according to Wimal Kapadia, biopharma equity research at Sanford C. Bernstein, as reported by Danish business daily Børsen.
