Sanders, who chairs the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, called on Danes to pressure Novo to “significantly reduce the outrageously high prices for Ozempic and Wegovy in the US and other parts of the world,” according to the letter, published by the Politiken newspaper on Monday.

Sanders has also called on Novo directly to lower its prices and has asked the drugmaker to reply to a series of questions on costs and manufacturing.
