Resumen:
The precipitin technique has been used in insulin resistance and immunity studies since the 1940s [7]. In the case described, the technique proved, once again, to be a valid method for choosing the most appropriate insulin. However, whether or not an immunological mechanism was involved in the lipoatrophic process remains uncertain, and further studies with adequate immunological assessment are necessary.
