  • Publication number: 20160303244
    Abstract: Insulin conjugates comprising an insulin molecule covalently attached to at least one bi-dentate linker having two arms, each arm independently attached to a ligand comprising a saccharide and wherein the saccharide for at least one ligand of the linker is fucose are disclosed.
