Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic Parameter: Area Under the Serum Insulin Concentration Versus Time Curve From Time Zero to the Last Time Point With a Measurable Concentration [AUC0-tlast] [ Time Frame: 0 up to 8 hours post dose ]
    Primary outcome measure is based on the pharmacokinetic area under the concentration-time curve from time 0 to the last time point with a measurable concentration.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic Parameter: Maximum Serum Insulin Concentration [Cmax] [ Time Frame: 0 to 8 hours post dose ]
    The maximum observed insulin lispro concentration following dosing.

  • Pharmacodynamic Parameter: Maximum Glucose Infusion Rate (Rmax) [ Time Frame: 0 to 8 hours post dose ]
    The maximum observed glucose infusion rate during the euglycemic clamp procedure.

  • Pharmacodynamic Parameter: Time of Maximum Glucose Infusion Rate (tRmax) [ Time Frame: 0 to 8 hours post dose ]
    Time of maximal glucose infusion rate.

  • Pharmacodynamic Parameter: Total Amount of Glucose Infused (Gtot) [ Time Frame: 0 to 8 hours post dose ]
    The total amount of glucose infused during the euglycemic clamp procedure.
