Eli, Lilly and Company pharma partners on a five-year research partnership with the University of Surrey to study health outcomes, focusing on the effects of treatment in people with type 2 diabetes, which affects about 95 percent of those with the disease.
Using real-world evidence (routine data gathered from patients undergoing diabetes treatments), Lilly and the University of Surrey will focus on developing answers to commonly asked clinical questions about the continuum of diabetes care, such as the role and timing of injectable therapy, factors impacting adherence to prescribed medicines and the pattern and rationale of therapy following diagnosis.

"Diabetes is a complex condition to manage, requiring each patient to be treated and supported in a variety of ways," said Professor Simon de Lusignan of the University of Surrey.
"Our research uses routine data to help busy clinicians incorporate innovation into routine practice, focusing on those diseases that pose highest risk.
By understanding how effectively individual care plans work we can learn more about how to improve and enhance diabetes care broadly. Our aim is to ensure that those suffering with the disease receive treatments that allow them to continue living their lives in the fullest sense, with effective support in place."
