No. 1 Selling Prefilled Insulin Pen in the World Available with Levemir(R), NovoLog(R) and NovoLog(R) Mix 70/30

PRINCETON, N.J., March 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Novo Nordisk has redesigned FlexPen(R), the number one selling pre-filled insulin pen in the world(1), to allow diabetes patients to use less force when pushing the button to inject their insulin and easily identify their insulin with prominent color branding. FlexPen(R) is only available with Novo Nordisk insulin products, Levemir(R) (insulin detemir [rDNA origin] injection), NovoLog(R) (insulin aspart [rDNA origin] injection) and NovoLog(R) Mix 70/30 (70% insulin aspart protamine suspension and 30% insulin aspart injection, [rDNA origin]).

Building on more than 25 years of research and development on insulin delivery devices, the improved FlexPen(R) requires 30 percent less injection force (the amount of pressure needed to press the button to inject the insulin) than the original FlexPen(R).(2) In a laboratory study the improved Levemir(R) FlexPen(R) had a significantly lower injection force compared to Lantus SoloSTAR(R).(3)

The improved FlexPen(R) has enhanced color branding, with color-identifiable cartridge holders for both the Levemir(R) FlexPen(R) and NovoLog(R) FlexPen(R). When the cap is removed, the entire portion under the cap is colored (green for Levemir(R), orange for NovoLog(R) and clear for NovoLog(R) Mix 70/30). Packaging for both sample and trade products has been redesigned to match the colors of the FlexPen(R). The improvements can help patients, HCPs, and pharmacists easily identify their insulin.

Similar to the original FlexPen(R), the improved FlexPen(R) allows users to set an appropriate dose, and does not all
