Sir,

In relation to the very interesting editorial published by your journal entitled: The discovery of insulin: the controversy continues,1 I would like to emphasize the role played by Dr. José Luís Rodríguez Miñón, founder of the Spanish Diabetes Association, an outstanding member of the IDF, and an honorary member of EASD, in his consistent defense of Paulescu as the discoverer of insulin.

Having become indirectly acquainted through Ion Pavel with Paulescu's studies, Dr. José Luís Rodríguez Miñón states in his magnificent book: Diabetes: three thousand years of history,2 that Paulescu was able to isolate insulin before Banting and Best. Previously, in 1988, Dr. José Luís Rodríguez Miñón stated in the journal Diabetes, in an article entitled The first diabetic patients treated with insulin,3 that Paulescu was able to isolate insulin eight months before Banting and Best.

The expansion of this historical outline with these quotations would complete the statements by the authors in this and other recent publications on the same subject.
