Re: [IP] Humalog $ increase

It has been 30yrs since I read this....Banting and Best (Best was a student)
discovered insulin at the University of Toronto in 1921-22 (and won the
noble prize).

A deal was struck with Lilly, who was to use the process to manufacture
insulin and sell it at cost.

This is why regular insulin was so cheap.

Now, however. they use different processes and produce different
insulins...and they make a profit.

Nothing is wrong with this profit motive, but it illustrates what a nobel
guy Dr Banting must have been.-James
