Calibra Gains FDA Clearance to Market Finesse™ Insulin Patch-Pen for Three-Day Use With Novolog®
Date:7/26/2010

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Calibra Medical announced today it received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its Finesse™ insulin patch-pen for up to three-day use with Novo Nordisk's Novolog® rapid acting insulin.

The company is pursuing marketing clearance for Finesse to deliver other manufacturers' insulin and diabetes drugs, and is planning to develop next-generation models, including devices pre-filled with insulin.

"With this device people will find daily self-administration of multiple doses of insulin is far easier, with less disruption and increased potential for better diabetes control," said Nancy J. V.
