  • Analysis of the NovoTwist pen needle in comparison with conventional screw-thread needles. Journal of diabetes science and technology Aye, T. 2011; 5 (6): 1488-1489


    Administration of insulin via a pen device may be advantageous over a vial and syringe system. Hofman and colleagues introduce a new insulin pen needle, the NovoTwist, to simplify injections to a small group of children and adolescents. Their overall preferences and evaluation of the handling of the needle are reported in the study. This new needle has the potential to ease administration of insulin via a pen device that may increase both the use of a pen device and adherence to insulin therapy.
