One thing to remember about approval - it only applies to how the drug may
be marketed.

So far, most people find no difference between the responses of Humalog and
Novolog.  If anything, Novolog has a slightly longer latency and slightly
longer activity curve.  The difference is the protein that is modified.
Novolog and Humalog are identically buffered.

But as with most things, some people get a better response with Novolog than
Humalog, and there are others who don't tolerate Novolog at all and do well
with Humalog.
