How Does Victoza Work?

Victoza is an analog of human GLP-1 and is produced using a process involving recombinant DNA expression. The GLP-1 receptor is found on cell surfaces. Victoza works by increasing cyclic AMP inside the cell, resulting in the release of insulin and also decreasing the secretion of glucagon. Victoza has a half life in the plasma of 13 hours after administration subcutaneously. Victoza is in a similar class of medications as dulaglutide (Trulicity), exenatide (Bydureon, Byetta), lixisenatide (Adlyxin), and semaglutide (Ozempic, Rybelsus, Wegovy).
