Sanofi, a French multinational pharmaceutical company, launched on Friday its next generation basal insulin in Pakistan.

“Insulin Glargine U300” was introduced to public at an event attended by leading doctors in Karachi.

The new product, designed to act over 24 hours, seeks to address this unmet need to improve the control of blood sugar in adults living with diabetes.

Manufactured at Sanofi’s ‘Insulin City’ in Germany, the product is available across the country on prescription.

Inhalable insulin for diabetics to be introduced in Pakistan soon

According to a statement, the basal insulin was approved by Food and Drug Authority (FDA) in 2015, and has since been introduced in many countries, including the US, Canada, Russia, Japan and India.

According to the pharmaceutical company, the insulin promises stable blood sugar control throughout the day and night, offering dosage flexibility and providing empowerment to patients.

“It is our endeavor to bring innovative solutions to patients to improve their health,” country chair and general manager Sanofi Pakistan Asim Jamal said.
