Hui et al6 studied the effects of insulin lispro Mix50 [50% short-acting lispro/50% intermediate-acting lispro protamine] and human insulin 30/70 on glycaemic control during Ramadan.
The longitudinal relationship of time-varying BMI with time-varying glycaemic control, adjusted for exogenous human insulin replacement and other covariates, was examined by multilevel mixed-effects linear regression analysis, which accounted for the correlated repeated measurements of covariates within subjects.
Then, the objective of this work was to investigate the effects of human insulin and 20E on some indicators of reproduction (vitellogenins, vitellins, ovarian ecdysteroids and reproductive potential) due to the role of these hormones on this process (Riehle and Brown, 1999; Maniere et al., 2004; De Loof, 2008; Belles and Piulachs, 2015).
Human insulin drugs segment is expected to account for the larger share of the global human insulin market in 2015, followed by insulin delivery devices.
Inhaled rapid-acting human insulin has also been investigated as add-on therapy to basal insulin providing similar glycemic control compared to twice-daily premixed biaspart insulin.
