Re: Lobby group wants insulin inquiry (Dale)

some people are allergic to penicillin. they die from it. this is something that nobody seems to know how to change.

if some people are 'allergic' to the non-animal insulin, there is something that can be done about it. it involves money.

is it not possible for the companies to continue to provide some animal insulin for the people who seem to need it and use monies for it that would ordinarily go into advertisements ? kind of a public relations fund ?

would this bankrupt the companies, or just make their profit a little less ? or could the companies charge a little more for the non-animal insulin in order to cover the cost of the animal insulin ?

any other ideas ?

on a more scientific note:
it seems to me that there is something else involved with the insulin dna sequence besides the known linear amino acid sequence. in my opinion, when this is defined, there won't be the problem of rejection of insulin by some people.
