Injections controlled the glucose levels for only a short period of time and therefore tissue stress and inflammation were elevated.” pg 1; “pumps require no daily injection and facilitate rat follow- up. Well-being of the animals and the homogeneity of the results permit researchers to limit the numbers of animals and experiments used to build solid and reproducible results.” pg 8; Dose (4 IU/day);.

“...In comparison to bolus IP injection, continuous administration of angiogenesis inhibitors by an osmotic pump implanted IP resulted in a decrease of the required dosage and improved the effectiveness of therapy.” (p.451) Cheng et al., Neoplasia 2003;5:445-456
