Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/12/2014 -- With the improvement of people's living standard and changing of lifestyles, as well as deepening of the aging of society, prevalence rate of diabetes keeps rising, making it the third most threatening chronic disease to human health after tumor and cardiovascular disease.

It is estimated that by 2035 there will be nearly 592 million people worldwide suffering from diabetes. In the evaluation of diabetes incidence and its trend among various countries and regions, China ranked the first with 98.4 million diabetes patients in 2013, followed by India (65.1 million), the U.S.A. (24.4 million), Brazil (11.9 million) and Russia (10.9 million). IDF estimates that the number of diabetes patients in China will reach 143 million by 2035, which will still be the highest worldwide while that in the U.S.A. will merely reach 29.7 million. Rapid growth of diabetes in China and other developing countries has become an extraordinarily serious burden for these countries' social and economic development.
Insulin glargine is the first long-acting insulin analogue produced through recombinant DNA technology. It was approved for use by FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in April 2000 and EMEA (European Medicines Evaluation Agency) in June 2000. As there is no apparent peak in long-term use of insulin glargine, it has become the most widely used insulin in the United States.
In China, the third-generation insulin is under promotion. Because of the relatively high price, it is mainly used in first-tier cities at present. The second and third generation insulin will be faced with a market pattern of dislocation competition.
