Another key difference between IGlar U-300 and IGlar U-100 is that the biopotency of IGlar U-300 over the 24-hour dosing period is 27% less than IGlar U-100 at steady state.19 Consequendy, the dose of IGlar U-300 may need to be adjusted accordingly when switching from IGlar U-100.
Subjects are evaluated at multiple time points over the initial 6-months post-injection for safety assessments and initial signals of biopotency. The clinical study is supported by neurocognitive evaluations, biochemical assessments and MRI data generated in a 25-subject MPS III Natural History Study, also conducted at Nationwide Children's Hospital, where patients continued through one-year of follow up assessments.

Experimental group (n=15), hyperprolactinemia was induced with subcutaneous injection of 5mg rat prolactin, biopotency (25IU/mg) in two divided doses daily for one week.
The factors that make this analysis difficult are the large number of naturally occurring carotenoids, their qualitative and quantitative variation in these foods, the small amount of pro-vitamin A carotenoids, their varied biopotency and the fact that carotenoids are highly unsaturated molecules, bringing about processes of isomerization, oxidation and degradation during analysis (RODRIGUEZ-AMAYA, 1999; RODRIGUEZ-AMAYA, KIMURA and AMAYA-FARFAN, 2008).
Several mature peptides encoded by kiss-1 gene including kisspeptin-54, -14, -13 and -10, all of their carboxyl terminus is a motif of arginine-phenylalanine-NH2 (RF-NH2), and each can activate GPR54 with equal biopotency (Kotani et al., 2001; Oakley et al., 2009).
