J&J Files for Canagliflozin Approval
NEW YORK (AP) - Johnson & Johnson said that it filed for marketing approval of a drug that combines its experimental diabetes treatment canagliflozin with metformin, an older drug.
The pill is intended to treat type 2 diabetes, in which the body doesn't produce enough insulin or the body's cells don't react properly to it. The company's Janssen Research and Development unit filed for approval with the Food and Drug Administration.
