FDA Approves Rapid-Acting Insulin Apidra(R) for Treatment of Children with Diabetes
Date:10/29/2008

in children, with approximately 176,500 people under 20 years of age affected by the disease. Approximately one out of every 400 to 600 American children and adolescents has type 1 diabetes.

About Apidra(R)

Apidra(R) is a rapid-acting insulin that can be administered using an insulin infusion pump, vial and syringe, the OptiClik(R) reusable insulin pen, or intravenously under proper medical supervision in a clinical setting. Apidra(R) works fast and offers flexible insulin dosing to help manage mealtime blood sugar levels. It should be administered within 15 minutes before or within 20 minutes after the start of a meal. Along with exercise, a basal insulin, and a proper meal plan, Apidra(R) is proven to help reduce A1C levels in adults and children (4 years and older) with type 1 diabetes and adults with type 2 diabetes.

Apidra(R) is from the maker of Lantus(R) (insulin glargine [rDNA origin] injection), the number one prescribed insulin.*

About Lantus(R)

Lantus(R) is indicated for the treatment of adult and pediatric patients 6 years and older with type 1 diabetes, or adult patients with type 2 diabetes who require basal (long-acting) insulin for the control of hyperglycemia. Lantus(R) is the only 24-hour insulin approved exclusively for use once a day. Most insulins have a "peak of action," which refers to the time at which insulin reaches its maximum effect in the body. With Lantus(R), the insulin is released into the bloodstream at a relatively constant rate throughout the day and night; therefore it has no pronounced peak.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR APIDRA(R)

Apidra(R) is for adults and children (4 years and older) with type 1 diabetes and adults with type 2 diabetes for the control of high blood sugar. Apidra(R) should normally be used with a longer-acting insulin. Do not use Apidra(R) during a low blood sugar reaction (hypoglycemia) or if you are allergic to insulin glulisine.
