In March, Lilly announced plans to introduce Insulin Lispro Injection, which fills another gap in the healthcare system.
With the launch of Insulin Lispro Injection, even more people will pay lower amounts at the pharmacy.
Insulin Lispro Injection has a list price of $137.35 per vial and $265.20 for a package of five KwikPens.

* Insulin therapy has been the cornerstone of the T1D treatment.
* The main driver of the enormous expansion of the T1D market will be the significant increase in T1D diagnosed prevalence as well as the uptake of novel ultra-long-acting insulin analogs , novel ultra-rapid-acting formulations of currently marketed rapid-acting insulin analogs and adjunct therapies such as GLP-1 RAs and SGLT-2, inhibitors.
A factor contributing to the key role of insulin in T2DM management is the continued improvements in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics to more closely mimic endogenous insulin.
Shortcomings of existing insulin analogs have led to further development of new insulin formulations.
A regimen that may make initiation of insulin simpler and more effective has been tested in several small studies (6-8).
Exclusion criteria included prior use of insulin, current use of an [alpha]-glucosidase inhibitor or a rapid-acting insulin secretagogue, use of other agents affecting glycaemic control (including systemic glucocorticoids, nonselective [beta]-sympathetic blockers, and anti obesity drugs), history of ketoacidosis or self-reported inability to recognize hypoglycemia, or serum creatinine ([greater than or equal to] 1.5 mg/dl for men and [greater than or equal to] 1.4 mg/dl for women), and a history of drug or alcohol abuse.
The new insulin was as effective as insulin glargine at reducing hemoglobin Ale levels in one study of patients with type 1 diabetes and in another of patients with type 2 diabetes.
Fear of hypoglycemic events often interferes with patients' initiating or intensifying their insulin therapy, and may be the leading cause of inadequate insulin dosing, the researchers noted.
