Insulin glargine is a new designer insulin with a peak-less and constant profile of action from two hours to over 24 hours (hrs). This property is highly suitable for providing basal insulin requirement to patients with diabetes. Glargine leads to greater reduction in fasting plasma glucose levels and significant reduction in hypoglycemic episodes. It is generally safe. However, the recent observations regarding increased mitogenicity in malignant cell lines and a tendency to cause progression of diabetic retinopathy, needs

further clarifications.
