Eli Lilly-NCCD deal to advance understanding of Type 2 diabetes & CVD

Eli Lilly and Company, the globally renowned pharma titan, has scarcely announced a strategic collaboration with the National Center for Cardiovascular Diseases in China. Incidentally, this move has come on the heels of the fact that China has now emerged as a potential investment hub for U.S. pharma and biotech firms.

Sources claim that Eli Lilly’s collaboration with NCCD takes root amidst a scenario where the regional healthcare industry is expected to advance appreciably. As per experts, China healthcare industry is likely to witness an exponential growth graph with an escalated revenue projection by the end of the year 2022. The partnership will be focusing on advancing the scientific understanding of Type 2 diabetes and the complications that may stem from the same, such as cardiovascular disease (CVD).

The association is likely to help in improving the healthcare infrastructure & facilities for the diabetics in the country. Both the firms will apparently develop a CVD risk calculator to enhance screening & help in the effective management of diabetes at the initial stage. It has been forecast that the combined entity will carry out joint research to determine new biomarkers for CVD, DKD, and diabetes progression.

NCCD and Eli Lilly will be authorized to access data from over one million of the Chinese populace suffering from Type 2 diabetes and prone to increased CVD risk.

Reportedly, since the last thirty years, there has been a rise in the diabetic population in China. It has increased from 1% in 1980 to approximately 11% in 2017. However, less than 33% of Chinese population suffering from diabetes receive medical treatment. Analysts project that partnership between the two reputed organizations will help the country in effectively treating diabetes through new drug combinations, thereby enhancing the lifespan as well as quality of life of patients afflicted with the silent killer.
