Senator Kamala Harris is introducing a bill to reduce the transmission of HIV by encouraging the use of PrEP. The FDA approved Truvada, a preventive drug for HIV, in 2019. The bill would provide financial assistance to states for more access to PrEP and fund public education campaigns.
The FDA has approved Victoza (liraglutide) injection for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in children above 10 years. It has been approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in adults in 2010. The FDA, considering the findings of a pediatric study, said that Victoza is a safe and effective treatment for pediatric patients with type 2 diabetes.
