a recent German study found that there are types of human insulin can be stored in room temp. for months without the need of freezing or refrigeration, this can provide hope for people with diabetes in rural areas and conflict zones without energy or cold chains.
Thanks for sharing this review @joseph_shenekji !
I admit I only took a short skim of it, but I’m curious if the pattern holds with larger studies (clinical and otherwise, within and outside lab settings), the extent of insulin activity retained on longer timescales, whilst maintaining sterility.
It’ll also be interesting to see how this might benefit the Open Insulin Project (https://openinsulin.org/) with their model for developing affordable, local insulin production.
