From Islamabad, Pakistan:

Is there any other company manufacturing beef insulin other than Novo-Nordisk and Eli Lilly?


There are indeed other companies that make insulin. Another in the USA is Aventis (formerly Hoechst). Local manufacturers on the Indian subcontinent also make insulin.


Additional comments from David Mendosa, A Writer on the Web:

CP Pharmaceuticals still produces and exports beef insulin. Possibly Biobras as well. For a complete list of insulin manufacturers see On-line Diabetes Resources: Insulin Web Sites.
