Firm Seeking U.S. Approval for Faster-Acting Insulin | Diabetes News Hound | January 15, 2010

Biopharmaceutical company Biodel, Inc is seeking U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval to market VIAject, an insulin that is designed to be absorbed into the blood faster than other current rapid-acting insulin analogues, according to a press release.

The company says VIAject helps reduce the risk of both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia (low and high blood sugar levels). The insulin is meant to be used in insulin pumps as well as injected during mealtimes.

VIAject has been tested in more than 850 patients in Phase 1, 2 and 3 clinical trials in the U.S., Germany, and India.
