What researchers are saying...
“One goal of the present studies was to find a safe way to continuously administer insulin to [rat] pups so that in the future we may examine the effects of this early exposure on adult animals. The present studies indicate that subcutaneous insulin pellets are not suitable for this purpose, since rat pups do not tolerate them well. On the other hand, it will be feasible to compare the long-term effects of receiving equivalent doses of insulin via daily injections or an osmotic minipumps.” Thompson et al., Can. J. Physiol. Pharmacol. 2002;80:180-192.
