It is anticipated that a new study will soon be published in a major medical journal, suggesting a link between Lantus and a certain type of cancer. It is thought that the anaylsis will be damaging to Lantus and its maker. Lantus is an insulin drug, made by Sanofi-Aventis, used to treat diabetes. Documents from as long ago as 2000 point to theoretic possibility of Lantus being a cancer-causing substance. Lantus was supposed to be Sanofi’s second-biggest selling drug this year. Sanofi is concerned that any suggestion that Lantus is linked to cancer will negatively impact the public perception and use of Lantus.
