Page 91, abstract, lines 1–6: The following sentence, which previously read:

Subcutaneous once-daily LY2963016 insulin glargine (LY insulin glargine) [Abasaglar® (EU); Basaglar® (USA)] has been approved in the EU as a biosimilar to reference insulin glargine (Lantus®), and in the USA as a follow-on biologic to reference insulin glargine, for use in patients with type 1 or 2 diabetes.

should read:

Subcutaneous once-daily LY2963016 insulin glargine 100 U/mL (LY insulin glargine) [Abasaglar® (EU); Basaglar® (USA)] has been approved in the EU as a biosimilar to insulin glargine 100 U/mL (Lantus®) [reference insulin glargine], and in the USA as a follow-on biologic to reference insulin glargine, for use in patients with type 1 or 2 diabetes.

Pages 91-2, section 1, paragraph 1, lines 4–10: The following sentence, which previously read:

Subcutaneous once-daily insulin glargine 100 U/mL (Lantus®) is an established effective and well-tolerated basal insulin therapy in patients with type 1 or 2 diabetes [1].
