Son of a Bong: Inhaled Insulin II

Dr. Alfred Mann of Mannkind Corp talks about inhaled insulin.

(you are going to see Market Watch's ad, YDMV etc.)


  1. I like your headline! It's ironic that this man was also the visionary behind a company once known as Minimed (which was later acquired by Metronic). He really believes in the product, which is good because he's funded about 61% of the company's total funding to date if I understand correctly. His positioning is that it's a more rapid-acting insulin that happens to be inhaled. Still, one cannot help but wonder if the world really needs this product, or if the money spent developing it might have helped fund some treatment for autoimmunity instead?
