CHMP recommends EMA approval of biosimilar insulin

Europe's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) recommends that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approve Eli Lilly (LLY) and Beohringer Ingelheim's investigational compound LY2963016, a new insulin glargine product, for the treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It is the first biosimilar insulin recommended for E.U. approval. It has the same amino acid sequence as Sanofi's Lantus (insulin glargine).

The European Commission's final decision is expected in ~2 months.
