HUMALOG® (insulin lispro) 100 units/mL: Biosimilarity to Admelog® (Insulin Lispro) 100 units/mL

Admelog is not considered biosimilar to Humalog in the United States.

Sanofi-Aventis received FDA approval for Admelog® (insulin lispro injection) 100 units/mL on December 11, 2017 as a follow-on biologic. The Admelog new drug application was filed through the 505(b)(2) pathway, which allows the FDA to consider the safety and efficacy of Humalog® (insulin lispro injection) 100 units as the listed drug relied upon. Admelog is not considered a biosimilar in the United States because of differences in the regulatory submission pathway.

Eli Lilly and Company has not investigated Admelog. The best source of information for any product is its manufacturer. Therefore, please refer to Sanofi-Aventis for questions specific to Admelog.

It is important to talk to your health care provider if you are unsure about your current prescribed dose of insulin. He/she is in the best position to discuss your insulin dose as he/she has access to your medical records. If your health care provider has questions or needs additional information about Humalog, please have him/her contact Lilly.
