Choongwae starts developing a combination of a new DPP-4 inhibitor and metformin. The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety approved Choongwae’s protocol for its new combo drug which contains anagliptin and metformin.

Choongwae completed its clinical trial for anagliptin and expects anagliptin will be approved in the first half of 2015. Anagliptin has been already marketed under the brand name of Suiny in Japan.

Choongwae plans to roll out anagliptin and a combo drug of anagliptin and metformin at the almost same time, but it depends on how price negotiation goes.

Currently most of the combo drugs containing a DPP-4 inhibitor are performing well.
