They've never been asked :-)

E.Lilly must submit the study information and ask for an indication 
for Humalog in pumps before the FDA will do anything.

Remember, approval only controls the claims they can make about 
Humalog not whether or not a doc may prescribe it. Without approval 
E.Lilly can't say that Humalog works fine in pumps, but they can sell 
it all day long for that purpose if a doc prescribes it.
