medwireNews: Ultra-rapid lispro may now be used in insulin pumps by people with type 1 diabetes in the USA following FDA approval.

This decision in based on the results of the PRONTO-PUMP-2 trial, in which pump users had significantly lower postprandial glucose levels with ultra-rapid lispro versus lispro, and spent significantly less time in hypoglycemia overall.

The alterations to the medication label also include the warning that insulin pump or infusion set malfunction can lead rapidly to ketoacidosis.
