    I’ve always been impressed by European drug companies – especially in design. Many a time I have wished my basal insulin pen (from an unnamed French company) contained fast-acting insulin. The sturdiness and accuracy of it so much better than my fast-acting pen made by an unnamed Princeton, NJ company.
