A deal with the Danish pharmaceutical giant is just what Zealand Pharma had hoped for when the company planned to enter licensing deals for its products, says CEO Adam Steensberg.

On Wednesday, Zealand Pharma announced that it had entered a licensing and development deal with Novo Nordisk concerning Zegalogue (dasiglucagon), the former firm’s rescue pen against severe hypoglycemia, which is a diabetic emergency caused by low blood sugar.

”It’s completely in line with what we want to achieve, which is to come together with some of the leading firms in the disease areas for which we develop medicines. Novo Nordisk is the leading company within diabetes, so we really couldn’t have got a more perfect partner,” Zealand Pharma CEO Adam Steenberg tells MedWatch.
