Summary of evidence and Expert Committee recommendations
The Expert Committee recommended that the current listings for human insulin on the core list of the EML and EMLc be extended to include cartridge and pre-filled pen delivery systems. The Committee considered that cartridges and pre-filled pens may offer advantages for patients over vials and syringes in terms of ease of use, greater accuracy of dosing and improved adherence. The Committee acknowledged that affordable access to insulin products remains a critical global health priority.
