New half-unit insulin pen 'offers more flexibility'
Sanofi has launched a half-unit insulin reusable pen device for patients with type 1 diabetes.
The JuniorSTAR pen allows for half-unit dose increments to provide flexibility, especially in young patients with diabetes.
The lightweight pen delivers from one to 30 units per injection, and contains a large dose display and a single-step dial back with no insulin leakage.
It can be used with insulin glargine (Lantus), insulin glulisine (Apidra) or recombinant human insulin (Insuman).
