FDA Approves Apidra(R) SoloSTAR(R) - a Prefilled Disposable Insulin Pen
Date:2/26/2009

ferent types of insulins (rapid-acting vs. long-acting). The differentiation of the Apidra(R) SoloSTAR(R) and Lantus(R) SoloSTAR(R) was shown in a specific comparative study. Nevertheless, before using Apidra(R) SoloSTAR(R) or Lantus(R) SoloSTAR(R), patients should carefully examine the labeling on the pen, to ensure they are using the correct one. Apidra(R) SoloSTAR(R) operates with a low injection force and two studies found that this delivery device required less injection force than the Novo Nordisk FlexPen and the Eli Lilly Humulin/Humalog pen.

Apidra(R) SoloSTAR(R) is expected to be available in pharmacies this year.

About Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic, widespread condition in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin, the hormone needed to transport glucose (sugar) from the blood into the cells of the body for energy. More than 230 million people worldwide are living with the disease and this number is expected to rise to a staggering 350 million within 20 years. It is estimated that nearly 24 million Americans have diabetes, including an estimated 5.7 million who remain undiagnosed. At the same time, approximately 40 percent of those diagnosed are not achieving the blood sugar control target of A1C <7 percent recommended by the ADA. The A1C test measures average blood glucose levels over the past two- to three-month period.
