International Experts Issue Lantus Statement

Sanofi-aventis recently publicized the release of an Expert Statement issued by a board of multidisciplinary, internationally acclaimed experts, which follows an in-depth evaluation of the recent publications of registry analyses with Lantus in Diabetologia.  Combined, the board of international experts boasts specialties in endocrinology, oncology and epidemiology,  they all came to the conclusion that all four manuscripts have crucial methodological restrictions and flaws,  the manuscripts display unstable and indefinite results with reference to the potential relationship between insulin glargine use and an increase risk of cancer.

Professor Riddle of Medicine, Diabetes Section Head, Division of Endocrinology/Diabetes/Clinical Nutrition at the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, states that with reference “to the merits of the published data, we agreed that all four published manuscripts have significant methodological limitations and shortcomings … the nature of these limitations and their potential magnitude are such that, individually or in aggregate, these studies provide inconsistent and inconclusive results which do not justify new clinical recommendations to patients.”

Following an autonomous, meticulous, in-depth analyses of the published data, all 14 experts signed-off on the the statement.  This comes at a time when a mass of recent releases from global Health Authorities have began to circulate.

The experts have suggested an implementation of action on the part of the company, independent experts or professional associations, that can lead to a comprehensible, exact resolution of the situation.
