Dr.Jothydev spoke on "Newer Insulin Delivery Devices"

Insulin pumps are the best but still very expensive.Novopen is a cost effective option and is accurate, painless and easy to carry around.

Insulin jet injectors are not that painless; it can produce bruises and should not be used routinely.

Jothydev also spoke on new real time paradigm pump.Oral insulins are being
developed by Nobex in association with Biocon, India.

Inhaled insulins have to come to the market.Novo is working on Arex which is
a liquid formulation and can deliver insulin in Arex units and helps in fine
titration. Other speakers included
