(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) Bagsværd , De n mark, 26 November 2021 – Novo Nordisk today announced that the company has received the results from the Volume Based Procurement (VBP) tender for insulin in China.

All Novo Nordisk's insulin were included in the tender except for Ryzodeg® and Xultophy®.
