  • 5 WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

    5.1 Never Share a HUMALOG Mix75/25 KwikPen or Syringe Between Patients

    HUMALOG Mix75/25 KwikPens must never be shared between patients, even if the needle is changed. Patients using HUMALOG Mix75/25 vials must never share needles or syringes with another person. Sharing poses a risk for transmission of blood-borne pathogens.

    5.2 Hyperglycemia or Hypoglycemia with Changes in Insulin Regimen

    Changes in insulin strength, manufacturer, type, or method of administration may affect glycemic control and predispose to hypoglycemia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)] or hyperglycemia. These changes should be made cautiously and under close medical supervision and the frequency of blood glucose monitoring should be increased. For patients with type 2 diabetes, dosage adjustments of concomitant anti-diabetic products may be needed.

    5.3 Hypoglycemia

    Hypoglycemia is the most common adverse reaction associated with all insulin therapies, including HUMALOG Mix75/25. Severe hypoglycemia can cause seizures, may lead to unconsciousness, may be life-threatening, or cause death. Hypoglycemia can impair concentration ability and reaction time; this may place an individual and others at risk in situations where these abilities are important (e.g., driving or operating other machinery).

    Hypoglycemia can happen suddenly and symptoms may differ in each individual and change over time in the same individual. Symptomatic awareness of hypoglycemia may be less pronounced in patients with longstanding diabetes, in patients with diabetic nerve disease, in patients using medications that block the sympathetic nervous system (e.g., beta-blockers) [see Drug Interactions (7)], or in patients who experience recurrent hypoglycemia.

    Risk Factors for Hypoglycemia

    The risk of hypoglycemia after an injection is related to the duration of action of the insulin and in general, is highest when the glucose lowering effect of the insulin is maximal. As with all insulin preparations, the glucose lowering effect time course of HUMALOG Mix75/25 may vary in different individuals or at different times in the same individual and depends on many conditions, including the area of injection as well as the injection site blood supply and temperature [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.2)]. Other factors which may increase the risk of hypoglycemia include changes in meal pattern (e.g., macronutrient content or timing of meals), changes in level of physical activity, or changes to co-administered medication [see Drug Interactions (7)]. Patients with renal or hepatic impairment may be at higher risk of hypoglycemia [see Use in Specific Populations (8.6, 8.7)].

    Risk Mitigation Strategies for Hypoglycemia

    Patients and caregivers must be educated to recognize and manage hypoglycemia. Self-monitoring of blood glucose plays an essential role in the prevention and management of hypoglycemia. In patients at higher risk for hypoglycemia and patients who have reduced symptomatic awareness of hypoglycemia, increased frequency of blood glucose monitoring is recommended.

    5.4 Hypoglycemia Due to Medication Errors

    Accidental mix-ups between HUMALOG Mix75/25 and other insulin products have been reported. To avoid medication errors between HUMALOG Mix75/25 and other insulins, instruct patients to always check the insulin label before each injection.

    5.5 Hypersensitivity Reactions

    Severe, life-threatening, generalized allergy, including anaphylaxis, can occur with insulin products, including HUMALOG Mix75/25. If hypersensitivity reactions occur, discontinue HUMALOG Mix75/25; treat per standard of care and monitor until symptoms and signs resolve. HUMALOG Mix75/25 is contraindicated in patients who have had hypersensitivity reactions to HUMALOG Mix75/25 or any of its excipients [see Contraindications (4)].

    5.6 Hypokalemia

    All insulin products, including HUMALOG Mix75/25, cause a shift in potassium from the extracellular to intracellular space, possibly leading to hypokalemia. Untreated hypokalemia may cause respiratory paralysis, ventricular arrhythmia, and death. Monitor potassium levels in patients at risk for hypokalemia if indicated (e.g., patients using potassium-lowering medications, patients taking medications sensitive to serum potassium concentrations).

    5.7 Fluid Retention and Heart Failure with Concomitant Use of PPAR-gamma Agonists

    Thiazolidinediones (TZDs), which are peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-gamma agonists, can cause dose-related fluid retention, particularly when used in combination with insulin. Fluid retention may lead to or exacerbate heart failure. Patients treated with insulin, including HUMALOG Mix75/25, and a PPAR-gamma agonist should be observed for signs and symptoms of heart failure. If heart failure develops, it should be managed according to current standards of care, and discontinuation or dose reduction of the PPAR-gamma agonist must be considered.

  • 6 ADVERSE REACTIONS

    The following adverse reactions are discussed elsewhere in the labeling:

    • Hypoglycemia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)]
    • Medication Errors [see Warnings and Precautions (5.4)]
    • Hypersensitivity Reactions [see Warnings and Precautions (5.5)]
    • Hypokalemia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.6)]

    Adverse Reactions from Clinical Studies or Postmarketing Reports

    The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-marketing use of HUMALOG Mix75/25. Because some of these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.

    Adverse reactions associated with insulin initiation and glucose control intensification

    Intensification or rapid improvement in glucose control has been associated with a transitory, reversible ophthalmologic refraction disorder, worsening of diabetic retinopathy, and acute painful peripheral neuropathy. Over the long-term, improved glycemic control decreases the risk of diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy.

    Hypersensitivity reactions

    Severe, life-threatening, generalized allergy, including anaphylaxis.

    Hypoglycemia

    Hypoglycemia is the most commonly observed adverse reaction in HUMALOG Mix75/25.

    Hypokalemia

    HUMALOG Mix75/25 can cause a shift in potassium from the extracellular to intracellular space, possibly leading to hypokalemia.

    Injection site reactions

    HUMALOG Mix75/25 can cause local injection site reactions including redness, swelling, or itching at the site of injection. These reactions usually resolve in a few days to a few weeks, but in some occasions, may require discontinuation. Localized reactions and generalized myalgias have been reported with the use of meta-cresol, which is an excipient in HUMALOG Mix75/25.

    Lipodystrophy

    Administration of insulin subcutaneously, including HUMALOG Mix75/25, has resulted in lipoatrophy (depression in the skin) or lipohypertrophy (enlargement or thickening of tissue) [see Dosage and Administration (2.1)] in some patients.

    Medication Errors

    Medication errors in which other insulins have been accidentally substituted for HUMALOG Mix75/25 have been identified during postapproval use.

    Peripheral Edema

    Insulin, including HUMALOG Mix75/25, may cause sodium retention and edema, particularly if previously poor metabolic control is improved by intensified insulin therapy.

    Weight gain

    Weight gain can occur with insulin therapy, including HUMALOG Mix75/25, and has been attributed to the anabolic effects of insulin and the decrease in glycosuria.

    Immunogenicity

    As with all therapeutic peptides, insulin administration may cause anti-insulin antibodies to form. The incidence of antibody formation with HUMALOG Mix75/25 is unknown.

  • 8 USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

    8.1 Pregnancy

    Risk Summary

    The limited available data with HUMALOG Mix75/25 in pregnant women are insufficient to inform a drug-associated risk of adverse developmental outcomes. Published studies with insulin lispro used during pregnancy have not reported an association between insulin lispro and the induction of major birth defects, miscarriage, or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes (see Data). There are risks to the mother and fetus associated with poorly controlled diabetes in pregnancy (see Clinical Considerations).

    Pregnant rats and rabbits were exposed to insulin lispro in animal reproduction studies during organogenesis. No adverse effects on embryo/fetal viability or morphology were observed in offspring of rats exposed to insulin lispro at a dose approximately 3 times the human subcutaneous dose of 1 unit insulin lispro/kg/day. No adverse effects on embryo/fetal development were observed in offspring of rabbits exposed to insulin lispro at doses up to approximately 0.24 times the human subcutaneous dose of 1 unit/kg/day (see Data).

    The estimated background risk of major birth defects is 6-10% in women with pre-gestational diabetes with a HbA1c >7 and has been reported to be as high as 20-25% in women with a HbA1c >10. The estimated background risk of miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2-4% and 15-20%, respectively.

    Clinical Considerations

    Disease-associated maternal and/or embryo/fetal risk

    Poorly controlled diabetes in pregnancy increases the maternal risk for diabetic ketoacidosis, pre-eclampsia, spontaneous abortions, preterm delivery, stillbirth and delivery complications. Poorly controlled diabetes increases the fetal risk for major birth defects, still birth, and macrosomia related morbidity.

    Data

    Human Data

    Published data from retrospective studies and meta-analyses do not report an association with insulin lispro and major birth defects, miscarriage, or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes when insulin lispro is used during pregnancy. However, these studies cannot definitely establish or exclude the absence of any risk because of methodological limitations including small sample size, selection bias, confounding by unmeasured factors, and some lacking comparator groups.

    Animal Data

    Animal reproduction studies have not been performed with HUMALOG Mix75/25. However, subcutaneous reproduction and teratology studies have been conducted with insulin lispro (a component of HUMALOG Mix75/25). In a combined fertility and embryo-fetal development study, female rats were given subcutaneous insulin lispro injections of 5 and 20 units/kg/day (0.8 and 3 times the human subcutaneous dose of 1 unit insulin lispro/kg/day, based on units/body surface area, respectively) from 2 weeks prior to cohabitation through Gestation Day 19. There were no adverse effects on female fertility, implantation, or fetal viability and morphology. However, fetal growth retardation was produced at the 20 units/kg/day-dose as indicated by decreased fetal weight and an increased incidence of fetal runts/litter.

    In an embryo-fetal development study in pregnant rabbits, insulin lispro doses of 0.1, 0.25, and 0.75 unit/kg/day (0.03, 0.08, and 0.24 times the human subcutaneous dose of 1 unit insulin lispro/kg/day, based on units/body surface area, respectively) were injected subcutaneously on Gestation days 7 through 19. There were no adverse effects on fetal viability, weight, and morphology at any dose.

    8.2 Lactation

    Risk Summary

    There are no data on the presence of HUMALOG Mix75/25 in human milk, the effects on the breastfed infant, or the effect on milk production. One small published study reported that exogenous insulin was present in human milk. However, there is insufficient information to determine the effects of HUMALOG Mix75/25 on the breastfed infant and no available information on the effects of HUMALOG Mix75/25 on milk production. The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother's clinical need for insulin, any potential adverse effects on the breastfed child from HUMALOG Mix75/25 or from the underlying maternal condition.

    8.4 Pediatric Use

    Safety and effectiveness of HUMALOG Mix75/25 in patients less than 18 years of age has not been established.

    8.5 Geriatric Use

    Clinical studies of Humalog Mix75/25 did not include sufficient numbers of patients aged 65 and over to determine whether they respond differently than younger patients. In elderly patients with diabetes, the initial dosing, dose increments, and maintenance dosage should be conservative to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].

    8.6 Renal Impairment

    The effect of renal impairment on the pharmacokinetics of HUMALOG Mix75/25 has not been studied. Patients with renal impairment may be at increased risk of hypoglycemia and may require more frequent HUMALOG Mix75/25 dose adjustment and more frequent glucose monitoring [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].

    8.7 Hepatic Impairment

    The effect of hepatic impairment on the pharmacokinetics of HUMALOG Mix75/25 has not been studied. Patients with hepatic impairment may be at increased risk of hypoglycemia and may require more frequent HUMALOG Mix75/25 dose adjustment and more frequent glucose monitoring [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].

    Close
  • 10 OVERDOSAGE

    Excess insulin administration may cause hypoglycemia and hypokalemia. Mild episodes of hypoglycemia usually can be treated with oral glucose. Adjustments in drug dosage, meal patterns, or exercise may be needed. More severe episodes with coma, seizure, or neurologic impairment may be treated with intramuscular or subcutaneous glucagon or concentrated intravenous glucose. Sustained carbohydrate intake and observation may be necessary because hypoglycemia may recur after apparent clinical recovery. Hypokalemia must be corrected appropriately [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3, 5.6)].

  • 11 DESCRIPTION

    HUMALOG Mix75/25 (insulin lispro protamine and insulin lispro injectable suspension) is a mixture of 75% insulin lispro protamine, an intermediate-acting human insulin analog, and 25% insulin lispro, a rapid-acting human insulin analog. Insulin lispro is produced by recombinant DNA technology utilizing a non-pathogenic laboratory strain of Escherichia coli. Insulin lispro differs from human insulin in that the amino acid proline at position B28 is replaced by lysine and the lysine in position B29 is replaced by proline. Chemically, it is Lys(B28), Pro(B29) human insulin analog and has the empirical formula C257H383N65O77S6 and a molecular weight of 5808, both identical to that of human insulin. Insulin lispro protamine suspension is a suspension of crystals produced from combining insulin lispro and protamine sulfate under appropriate conditions for crystal formation.

    Insulin lispro has the following primary structure:

    Primary Structure

    HUMALOG Mix75/25 vials and KwikPens contain a white and cloudy, sterile suspension of insulin lispro protamine suspension mixed with soluble insulin lispro for use as an injection.

    Each milliliter of HUMALOG Mix75/25 injection contains insulin lispro 100 units, 0.28 mg protamine sulfate, 16 mg glycerin, 3.78 mg dibasic sodium phosphate, 1.76 mg Metacresol, zinc oxide content adjusted to provide 0.025 mg zinc ion, 0.715 mg phenol, and Water for Injection. The pH is 7.0 to 7.8. Sodium hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid may be added during manufacture to adjust the pH.

  • 12 CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

    12.1 Mechanism of Action

    The primary activity of insulin, including HUMALOG Mix75/25, is the regulation of glucose metabolism. Insulins lower blood glucose by stimulating peripheral glucose uptake by skeletal muscle and fat, and by inhibiting hepatic glucose production. Insulins inhibit lipolysis and proteolysis, and enhance protein synthesis.

    12.2 Pharmacodynamics

    In a glucose clamp study performed in 30 healthy subjects, the onset of action and glucose-lowering activity of HUMALOG, HUMALOG® Mix50/50™, HUMALOG Mix75/25, and insulin lispro protamine suspension (ILPS) were compared (see Figure 1). Graphs of mean glucose infusion rate versus time showed a distinct insulin activity profile for each formulation. The rapid onset of glucose-lowering activity characteristic of HUMALOG was maintained in HUMALOG Mix75/25. The median maximum pharmacologic effect of HUMALOG Mix75/25 after administration of a 0.3 unit/kg dose to healthy subjects occurred at approximately 2 hours (range: 1-6 hours); glucose lowering activity was detectable for a median of 22 hours (range: 13 to 22 hours), which was the end of the clamp.

    In separate glucose clamp studies performed in healthy subjects, pharmacodynamics of HUMALOG Mix75/25 and HUMULIN® 70/30 were assessed and are presented in Figure 2. HUMALOG Mix75/25 has a duration of activity similar to that of HUMULIN 70/30.

    Figures 1 and 2 should be considered only as representative examples since the time course of action of insulin and insulin analogs, may vary in different individuals or within the same individual.

    Figure 1: Mean Insulin Activity Versus Time Profiles After Injection of 0.3 units/kg of HUMALOG, HUMALOG Mix50/50, HUMALOG Mix75/25, or Insulin Lispro Protamine Suspension (ILPS) in 30 Healthy Subjects.

    12.3 Pharmacokinetics

    Absorption — HUMALOG Mix75/25 has two phases of absorption. The early phase represents insulin lispro and its distinct characteristics of rapid onset. The late phase represents the prolonged absorption of insulin lispro protamine suspension.

    In 31 healthy subjects given subcutaneous doses (0.3 unit/kg) of HUMALOG Mix75/25, the median peak serum concentration was 60 minutes (range: 30 minutes to 4 hours) after dosing. Identical results were found in patients with type 1 diabetes. The rapid absorption characteristics of HUMALOG are maintained with HUMALOG Mix75/25. HUMALOG Mix75/25 has a more rapid absorption than HUMULIN 70/30, which has been confirmed in patients with type 1 diabetes.

    Metabolism — Human metabolism studies of HUMALOG Mix75/25 have not been conducted. However, studies in animals indicate that the metabolism of HUMALOG, the rapid-acting component of HUMALOG Mix75/25, is identical to that of regular human insulin.

    Elimination — Because of the absorption-rate limited kinetics of insulin mixtures, a true half-life cannot be accurately estimated from the terminal slope of the concentration versus time curve.

    Specific Populations

    The effects of age, race, obesity, pregnancy, smoking, or renal or hepatic impairment on the pharmacokinetics of HUMALOG Mix75/25 have not been studied.

    Gender — Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic comparisons between men and women administered HUMALOG Mix75/25 showed no gender differences.

  • 13 NONCLINICAL TOXICOLOGY

    13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

    Standard 2-year carcinogenicity studies in animals have not been performed with HUMALOG Mix75/25. In Fischer 344 rats, a 12-month repeat-dose toxicity study was conducted with insulin lispro (a component of HUMALOG Mix75/25) at subcutaneous doses of 20 and 200 units/kg/day (approximately 3 and 32 times the human subcutaneous dose of 1 unit insulin lispro/kg/day, based on units/body surface area). Insulin lispro did not produce important target organ toxicity including mammary tumors at any dose.

    Insulin lispro was not mutagenic in the following genetic toxicity assays: bacterial mutation, unscheduled DNA synthesis, mouse lymphoma, chromosomal aberration and micronucleus assays.

    Male fertility was not compromised when male rats given subcutaneous insulin lispro injections of 5 and 20 units/kg/day (0.8 and 3 times the human subcutaneous dose of 1 unit insulin lispro/kg/day, based on units/body surface area) for 6 months were mated with untreated female rats. In a combined fertility, perinatal, and postnatal study in male and female rats given 1, 5, and 20 units/kg/day subcutaneously (0.16, 0.8, and 3 times the human subcutaneous dose of 1 unit insulin lispro/kg/day, based on units/body surface area), mating and fertility were not adversely affected in either gender at any dose.

    Disposing of used needles and syringes

    • Put your used needles and syringes in a FDA-cleared sharps disposal container right away after use. Do not throw away (dispose of) loose needles and syringes in your household trash.
    • If you do not have a FDA-cleared sharps disposal container, you may use a household container that is:
      -
      made of a heavy-duty plastic,
      -
      can be closed with a tight-fitting, puncture-resistant lid, without sharps being able to come out,
      -
      upright and stable during use,
      -
      leak-resistant, and
      -
      properly labeled to warn of hazardous waste inside the container.

    • To prime your Pen, turn the Dose Knob to select 2 units.

    Figure
    Step 9:
    • Hold your Pen with the Needle pointing up. Tap the Cartridge Holder gently to collect air bubbles at the top.

    Figure
    Step 10:
    • Continue holding your Pen with Needle pointing up. Push the Dose Knob in until it stops, and “0” is seen in the Dose Window. Hold the Dose Knob in and count to 5 slowly.
    • You should see insulin at the tip of the Needle.
      -
      If you do not see insulin, repeat priming steps 8 to 10, no more than 4 times.
      -
      If you still do not see insulin, change the Needle and repeat priming steps 8 to 10.




      Small air bubbles are normal and will not affect your dose.

    Figure
    Figure

    Selecting your dose

    • You can give from 1 to 60 units in a single injection.
    • If your dose is more than 60 units, you will need to give more than one injection.
      -
      If you need help with dividing up your dose the right way, ask your healthcare provider.
      -
      Use a new Needle for each injection and repeat the priming steps.
    Step 11:
    • Turn the Dose Knob to select the number of units you need to inject. The Dose Indicator should line up with your dose.
      -
      The Pen dials 1 unit at a time.
      -
      The Dose Knob clicks as you turn it.
      -
      Do not dial your dose by counting the clicks. You may dial the wrong dose. This may lead to you getting too much insulin or not enough insulin.
      -
      The dose can be corrected by turning the Dose Knob in either direction until the correct dose lines up with the Dose Indicator.
      -
      The even numbers (for example, 12) are printed on the dial.
      -
      The odd numbers, (for example, 25) after the number 1, are shown as full lines.
    • Always check the number in the Dose Window to make sure you have dialed the correct dose.

    Figure
    Figure
(Example: 12 units shown in the Dose Window)

    Figure
(Example: 25 units shown in the Dose Window)
    • The Pen will not let you dial more than the number of units left in the Pen.
    • If you need to inject more than the number of units left in the Pen, you may either:
      -
      inject the amount left in your Pen and then use a new Pen to give the rest of your dose, or
      -
      get a new Pen and inject the full dose.
    • It is normal to see a small amount of insulin left in the Pen that you can not inject.

    Giving your injection

    • Inject your insulin as your healthcare provider has shown you.
    • Change (rotate) your injection site for each injection.
    • Do not try to change your dose while injecting.
    Step 12:
    • Choose your injection site.
      HUMALOG Mix75/25 is injected under the skin (subcutaneously) of your stomach area, buttocks, upper legs or upper arms.

    Figure
    Step 14:
    • Pull the Needle out of your skin.
      A drop of insulin at the Needle tip is normal. It will not affect your dose.
    • Check the number in the Dose Window.
      -
      If you see “0” in the Dose Window, you have received the full amount you dialed.
      -
      If you do not see “0” in the Dose Window, do not redial. Insert the Needle into your skin and finish your injection.
      -
      If you still do not think you received the full amount you dialed for your injection, do not start over or repeat the injection. Monitor your blood glucose as instructed by your healthcare provider.
      -
      If you normally need to give 2 injections for your full dose, be sure to give your second injection.
    The Plunger only moves a little with each injection, and you may not notice that it moves.
    If you see blood after you take the Needle out of your skin, press the injection site lightly with a piece of gauze or an alcohol swab. Do not rub the area.

    • Put your used needles in a FDA-cleared sharps disposal container right away after use. Do not throw away (dispose of) loose needles in your household trash.
    • If you do not have a FDA-cleared sharps disposal container, you may use a household container that is:
      -
      made of a heavy-duty plastic,
      -
      can be closed with a tight-fitting, puncture-resistant lid, without sharps being able to come out,
      -
      upright and stable during use,
      -
      leak-resistant, and
      -
      properly labeled to warn of hazardous waste inside the container.
    • When your sharps disposal container is almost full, you will need to follow your community guidelines for the right way to dispose of your sharps disposal container. There may be state or local laws about how you should throw away used needles and syringes. For more information about safe sharps disposal, and for specific information about sharps disposal in the state that you live in, go to the FDA's website at: http://www.fda.gov/safesharpsdisposal
    • Do not dispose of your used sharps disposal container in your household trash unless your community guidelines permit this. Do not recycle your used sharps disposal container.
    • The used Pen may be discarded in your household trash after you have removed the needle.

    Storing your Pen

    Unused Pens

    • Store unused Pens in the refrigerator at 36°F to 46°F (2°C to 8°C).
    • Do not freeze your insulin. Do not use if HUMALOG Mix75/25 has been frozen.
    • Unused Pens may be used until the expiration date printed on the Label, if the Pen has been kept in the refrigerator.
    • Unused Pens stored at room temperature, below 86°F (30°C), should be thrown away after 10 days.

    In-use Pen

    • Store the Pen you are currently using at room temperature [up to 86°F (30°C)]. Keep away from heat and light.
    • Throw away the HUMALOG Mix75/25 Pen you are using after 10 days, even if it still has insulin left in it.

    General information about the safe and effective use of your Pen

    • Keep your Pen and needles out of the reach of children.
    • Do not use your Pen if any part looks broken or damaged.
    • Always carry an extra Pen in case yours is lost or damaged.

    Troubleshooting

    • If you can not remove the Pen Cap, gently twist the cap back and forth, and then pull the cap straight off.
    • If the Dose Knob is hard to push:
      -
      Pushing the Dose Knob more slowly will make it easier to inject.
      -
      Your Needle may be blocked. Put on a new Needle and prime the Pen.
      -
      You may have dust, food, or liquid inside the Pen. Throw the Pen away and get a new Pen.
