Novolin® R Regular, Human Insulin Injection (rDNA origin) USP is a polypeptide hormone structurally identical to natural human insulin and is produced by rDNA technology.
Novolin R is indicated for subcutaneous administration for the treatment of patients with diabetes mellitus, for the control of hyperglycemia. Treatment with Novolin R is as an adjunct to diet and exercise for lowering blood glucose in patients with Type 1 diabetes or in patients with Type 2 diabetes for whom oral antidiabetic therapy is inadequate.
Novolin R may be administered intravenously under proper medical supervision in a clinical setting for glycemic control. (See DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION and RECOMMENDED STORAGE.)

Effect of angiotensin receptor blockade on insulin sensitivity and endothelial function in abdominally obese hypertensive patients with impaired fasting glucose. [2012.02.01]
AngII (angiotensin II) may contribute to cardiovascular risk in obesity via adverse effects on insulin sensitivity and endothelial function. In the present study, we examined the effects of ARB (angiotensin receptor blocker) therapy (losartan, 100 mg/day) on insulin sensitivity and endothelial function in 53 subjects with stage I hypertension, abdominal obesity and impaired fasting glucose.

Clinical Trials Related to Novolin (Insulin Human)
Comparative Glucose Clamp Study of Wockhardt's Human Isophane Insulin With Novolin N,in Healthy Subjects [Recruiting]
The aim of this trial is to demonstrate bioequivalence of Wosulin N to Novolin® N with
regard to its total and to its maximum serum insulin concentrations.
Insulin Detemir Compared to Insulin Glargine: Appetite and Calories Consumed in Type 1 Diabetes [Recruiting]
Patients with diabetes treated with insulin often gain weight, which may deter patients from
adhering to insulin treatment. Detemir is one type of long acting insulin approved by the
Food and Drug Administration for use in people with diabetes. It is similar to other long
acting insulins (NPH, glargine) except that it has been associated with less weight gain
compared to other types of insulin. The reasons for this are still unclear. One possibility
is that detemir insulin acts differently than do other insulins in affecting how diabetic
patients eat meals. The purpose of this study is to determine whether appetite and calories
eaten during a meal are affected by the type of insulin used to treat diabetes. This is a
pilot study which means we are gathering preliminary information to determine if a larger
study can be done.
Comparison of a Twice Daily Versus a Three Times Daily Insulin Regimen in Children With Type 1 Diabetes [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to determine whether there is a difference in blood sugar
control (as measured by hemoglobin A1c (HA1c)), in children given twice daily insulin
injections incorporating a new long acting insulin analogue (detemir) compared to children
using their current three times a day insulin injections (with intermediate and rapid acting
Hospital Management of Hyperglycemia Study of Insulin Glargine Plus Insulin Lispro Versus Human Regular Insulin [Not yet recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to compare the use of insulin glargine plus insulin lispro to
human regular insulin for treatment of hyperglycemia in the hospital setting in patients
without known prior history of diabetes.
Insulin Detemir Action in Cerebro [Recruiting]
The aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that subcutaneous administration of insulin
detemir, as compared to insulin NPH, leads to a more pronounced effect on cerebral glucose
metabolism and/or cerebral blood flow in brain regions associated with appetite regulation,
to account for the reported difference in weight.
