Insulet, Lilly Team on New Version of OmniPod

January 12, 2016

Diabetes patients may one day have a new alternative to managing their condition as a result of an agreement between Insulet and Eli Lilly.

Under the agreement, the two will work on a new version of Insulet's OmniPod tubeless insulin delivery system, designed to deliver Lilly's Humalog 200 units/mL insulin. Humalog U200 is provides the same dose of insulin in half the volume of Lilly's Humalog U100 insulin. 

In a statement, Insulet says the delivery system represents an opportunity for diabetes patients with higher insulin requirements to benefit from the improved glycemic control versus multiple daily injections.
