The authors of October's Clinical Case Study provided us with three exclusive questions that will not appear in the published version of the Case. We'd love to hear your answers to these questions in the comments section!

  1. What are the effects of exogenous insulin on the measurement of insulin using routine immunoassays?
  2. What are the implications of poorly standardized insulin immunoassays in clinical and research settings?
  3. Discuss the international efforts to standardize insulin assays.
