Becoming the first company to introduce the first biosynthetic ‘human’ insulin with recombinant DNA technology in the 1980s, Eli Lilly continues to be a leader in diabetes management.

The company has recently partnered with Dexcom to strengthen its position within the diabetes market. Dexcom will link its smart insulin delivery devices, such as its continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) with Lilly’s Connected Diabetes Ecosystem to strengthen both companies position and fight off growing competition in this space.

Through the Connected Diabetes Ecosystem, both parties will aim to provide a comprehensive solution. Devices such as CGM, smart-pens and insulin pumps, drugs, apps and other analytical tools will be aimed at improving outcomes. Clinical trials are expected to begin by the end of 2017.

“Dexcom will be an important collaborator in our mission to improve outcomes and reduce the daily burden for people with diabetes.”
