A novel form of insulin that is intended to accelerate absorption of the hormone by patients with Type 1 diabetes has met the primary endpoint of non-inferiority in a Phase 1 trial compared with NovoRapid, a standard of care. Arecor Therapeutics Plc, the developer, announced the results on 20 September. AT278 is an ultra-concentrated formulation that has been designed to speed absorption of insulin post injection even when delivered at a high concentration.
