Lilly Introduces KwikPen for Humalog and Humalog Mixtures

Lilly's new KwikPen pre-filled insulin pen

| Feb 28, 2008

Eli Lilly and Company has introduced KwikPen, a pre-filled insulin pen containing its Humalog insulin brand of insulins. The pen is the third that Lilly has introduced over the past 12 months, following in the wake of the HumaPen MEMOIR, a digital insulin pen with memory, and the HumaPen® LUXURA HD, a reusable pen for people who need insulin dosing in smaller increments.

KwikPen is now available by prescription in pharmacies. It is pre-filled with the Humalog brand of insulins, including Humalog, Humalog Mix75/25 and Humalog Mix50/50.

The company says its original Humalog and Humalog Mixtures pre-filled pens remain available and that patients using them do not need to convert to the newer pens unless they choose to do so in consultation with a healthcare professional.
