Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Primary efficacy data was HbA1c. [ Time Frame: At week 24 (the last day of the treatment period). ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Secondary efficacy data included HbA1c. [ Time Frame: At Week 8 and Week 16 after starting study medication and selfmonitored blood glucose (SMBG) measurements. ]

Enrollment: 58
Study Start Date: November 2002
Study Completion Date: September 2003
Primary Completion Date: September 2003 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 70 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • diagnosis of type 1 diabetes mellitus for at least one year.
  • Subjects with no previous experience with Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion (CSII) or insulin glargine,
  • capable of managing a basal-bolus regimen and meeting glycaemic targets in accordance with the protocol.
  • HbA1c > than or = to 6.5 < than or = to 9.0% at screening visit with evidence of lack of insulin secretion (e.g. fasting C-peptide concentration is < 0.1 nmol/l with fasting blood glucose(FBG) > 126 mg/dl).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous therapy using insulin glargine or continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion.
  • Lipodystrophy preventing adequate use of CSII.
  • Unwilling or unlikely to be able to use MiniMedr insulin pump with insulin lispro for CSII.
  • Unwilling or unlikely to be able to use an MDI regimen with insulin glargine and insulin lispro in accordance with the protocol (for instance, subjects who routinely use a twice-daily mixed insulin regimen should not be included).
  • History of more than two severe hypoglycaemic episodes in the past 6 months.
  • Acute infection which, in the opinion of the investigator, could lead to increased insulin resistance.
  • Acute or chronic metabolic acidosis.
  • Episode of DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis) within the last three months.
  • Active, uncontrolled, advanced diabetic retinopathy.
  • Impaired hepatic function, as shown by > 2.5 times the upper limit of normal range for AST.
  • Impaired renal function, as shown by serum creatinine > 1.5mg/dl.
  • History of gastroparesis. Congestive heart failure requiring ongoing pharmacological treatment.
  • Stroke, myocardial infarction (MI), coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) or angina pectoris within the last 12 months.
  • Treatment with a non-selective beta blocker.
  • Treatment with inhaled or systemic steroids.
  • History of hypersensitivity to insulin lispro or to any drug with a similar chemical structure to insulin glargine or insulin lispro or to any of the excipients of the insulin glargine and insulin lispro preparations used in the study.
  • Any malignancy within the last five years, except adequately treated basal cell carcinoma.
  • History within the last two years or current addiction to substances of abuse including ethanol.
