U-500R Insulin In Type 2 Diabetes With Severe Insulin Resistance Via Omnipod

2014-08-27 03:33:17 | BioPortfolio


Patients with Type 2 diabetes and severe insulin resistance with very large insulin requirements who have failed all previous insulin regimens using nonconcentrated forms of insulin (U100 insulin formulations) will be able to control their blood glucose levels using 5X concentrated insulin (U500 regular insulin) when it is infused continuously subcutaneously via insulin pump.


Patients with Type 2 diabetes who have severe insulin resistance and very large insulin requirements (over 1.4 units of insulin /kg/day) often fail insulin regimens with persistent poor blood glucose control when standard U-100 insulin formulations are used. This is due in part to poor absorption of the large insulin volumes required using these less concentrated standard insulin preparations. In these patients, using a concentrated form of insulin called U-500 Regular insulin and and delivering it by continuous subcutaneous infusion via insulin pump lowers the volume of insulin required which improves absorption and leads to improved blood glucose control.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.

A syndrome with excessively high INSULIN levels in the BLOOD. It may cause HYPOGLYCEMIA. Etiology of hyperinsulinism varies, including hypersecretion of a beta cell tumor (INSULINOMA); autoantibodies against insulin (INSULIN ANTIBODIES); defective insulin receptor (INSULIN RESISTANCE); or overuse of exogenous insulin or HYPOGLYCEMIC AGENTS.

Diminished effectiveness of INSULIN in lowering blood sugar levels: requiring the use of 200 units or more of insulin per day to prevent HYPERGLYCEMIA or KETOSIS. It can be caused by the presence of INSULIN ANTIBODIES or the abnormalities in insulin receptors (RECEPTOR, INSULIN) on target cell surfaces. It is often associated with OBESITY; DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS; INFECTION; and certain rare conditions. (from Stedman, 25th ed)
