  • (1888PressRelease) June 05, 2015 - Several new high strength fixed combination and biosimilar insulin products are now on the market and draft guidance has been published which summarises ways to minimise the risk of medication errors. Further such insulin products will come to market over the next few years, as such the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) are encouraging those applicable to comment on the risk minimisation strategy for high strength and fixed combination insulin products, which is being developed by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
