Lilly and Adocia will develop BioChaperone Lispro with the goal of optimizing glucose levels during and after meals. Potential benefits of BioChaperone Lispro include greater flexibility in the timing of insulin injections, lower variability of post-meal blood glucose elevations, lower rates of hypoglycemia and better overall glucose control.
An ultra-rapid acting insulin, if approved by regulators, could provide a new important treatment option for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. An ultra-rapid acting insulin would be a natural fit in our growing portfolio.
“It is a great day for Adocia and Lilly, a global leader in diabetes treatment, to initiate a new collaboration for the development of an innovative ultra-rapid formulation of insulin lispro.We consider Lilly a key collaborator on this project based on their extensive knowledge of insulin.
