The FDA says Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ +0.1%) diabetes drug Invokana was effective at lowering a key measure of blood sugar, but the agency raised concerns about potential stroke and bone-related safety risks.

The agency released its review of the product today in preparation for the panel meeting.
