    Prior to

    Hi,

    - ........ discovery of insulin, it was not possible to treat diabetes.

    Could you tell me which option would be correct for the gap ?

    In my opinion, first one is the correct one.

    Thank you in advance..

    Re: Prior to

    You're right, "Prior to the discovery" is correct.

    Re: Prior to

    We don't start any sentence with "To prior" in order to mean "Before".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
