In summary, we found no persistent differences in the risk for ten specific cancers and any cancer, when comparing use of the insulin analogues insulin glargine or insulin detemir vs human insulin. These results add to the conclusive evidence on the absence of a relationship between cancer incidence and use of insulin analogues at follow-up exceeding 5 years.We see no indications to warrant withholding of the use of the insulin analogues insulin glargine and insulin detemir.
