Exenetide prolonged release

17th March 2012 by Louise Hudman

The new NICE guideline advises that Exenetide Prolonged Release can be used instead of normal Exenetide and is given just once weekly rather than twice daily. It causes fewer side-effects (on the GI / hypo front). It is more cost-effective than normal Exenetide. Allthough it is a little more expensive, it gives a better drop in HbA1c.

The indications for it’s use are the same as for normal exenetide.
