Boehringer Ingelheim prepares the launch of its new drug against obesity. The pharmaceutical company will launch phase III of its medication, after the positive results achieved in phase II in weight loss after 46 weeks of treatment for patients with this disease, according to a statement issued by the company.
The medicine called Survodutide has been developed together with the biotech company Zealand Pharma. With this trial, both companies are looking for their niche market with a potential value of $100 trillion for treatments against obesity.
Survodutide works by mimicking a gut hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1, which suppresses appetite and helps break down fat. Also, this same drug is being tested in patients who have a fatty liver, called non-alcoholic steatohepatitis.

Boehringer Ingelheim has developed this new obesity drug with Zealand Pharma
Recently, the German pharmaceutical company allocated €13 million to the digitization of its technology facility in Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona). In addition, the pharmaceutical intends to expand this center by 10% throughout this year.
Its center in Barcelona is one of the largest that the pharmaceutical company has after its headquarters in the United States. In addition, it houses the cyber intelligence and security operations center, which is in charge of identifying vulnerabilities and possible cyberattacks in order to protect and prepare the company against this type of event.
This technological facility was inaugurated ten years ago with more than one hundred workers, becoming one of the first global IT service infrastructures in the Barcelona area. Currently, the workforce is approximately three hundred people, and provides services to more than 50,000 users.
The technology hub also incorporates the network operation center, the factory automation center of excellence, and the Salesforce center of excellence, among others. The new industry 4.0 technologies are also manufactured from this plant to achieve the most advanced level of automation in drug production plants on a global scale.
The pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim was founded in 1885 by Albert Boehringer in Ingelheim am Rhein (Germany). In 1952 the company’s productive, administrative, and commercial activity began in the Spanish market. Currently, the company produces in the country at its plants in Malgrat de Mar and Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona).
