In brief: Similar

Humulin and novolin are made by two different companies, but they make similar products, so Humulin R would be similar to novolin r, Humulin N would be similar to novolin n.
These are all "old fashion" insulins and not used very much anymore compared to humalog, novolog, lantus, Levemir (insulin detemir) insulins.
