insulin Aspart(50%)


Insulin aspart is used to treat type 1 diabetes (wherein the body because of lack of insulin production cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood) and type 2 diabetes (wherein body due to its inability to use insulin normally cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood).

Insulin aspart belongs to the class of medications called insulin. It aids the body in replacing normally produced insulin thus lowering blood glucose and helping in the treatment of diabetes.

Insulin Aspart Protamine(50%)


Treatment of Diabetes mellitus in adults, adolescents and children aged 10 years and above.

How it works

Insulin aspart protamine binds to the insulin receptor (IR), a heterotetrameric protein consisting of two extracellular alpha units and two transmembrane beta units. The binding of insulin to the alpha subunit of IR stimulates the tyrosine kinase activity intrinsic to the beta subunit of the receptor. The bound receptor autophosphorylates and phosphorylates numerous intracellular substrates such as insulin receptor substrates (IRS) proteins, Cbl, APS, Shc and Gab 1. Activation of these proteins leads to the activation of downstream signaling molecules including PI3 kinase and Akt. Akt regulates the activity of glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) and protein kinase C (PKC),

Common side effects

Peripheral neuropathy, Diabetic retinopathy, Fall in blood sugar level, Lipodystrophy
