Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the duration of the metabolic effect of a sc injected single dose of either insulin glargine (LantusT) or NPH-insulin (ProtaphanT) on blood glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes [ Time Frame: during the study conduct ]

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years to 65 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Type 2 diabetes mellitus of either gender as defined by the American Diabetes Association (3) for more than 6 months
  • BMI (as defined in Appendix A of the protocol) between 28 kg/mý and 32 kg/mý (before implementation of Amendment 1) or between 26 kg/mý and 34 kg/mý (after implementation of Amendment 1)
  • Having required treatment with insulin for at least 6 months
  • Stable glycemic control with glycohemoglobin (HbA1c) >7.5% and <9.5% (before implementation of Amendment 1) or >7.0% and <9.5% (after implementation of Amendment 1
  • Fasting serum C-peptide >0.2 pmol/mL. According to Amendment 3, five additional subjects with "low" (defined as less than or equal to 0.4 pmol/mL) and 5 subjects with "high" (defined as >0.4 pmol/mL) fasting C-peptide were to be enrolled.
  • Negative pregnancy test in female subjects of childbearing potential (only for those who were not surgically sterile or who were less than 2 years postmenopausal) at the beginning of the study
  • No findings in medical history and physical examination (cardiovascular system, chest and lungs, thyroid, abdomen, nervous system, skin and mucosae, and muscular-skeletal system) which were clinically relevant and interfering with the conduct of the study
  • Normal ECG, blood pressure, pulse rate and core body temperature unless the investigator considered an abnormality to be clinically irrelevant and not interfering with the conduct of the study

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with "brittle" diabetes or predisposition to severe hypoglycemia, e.g. 2 or more severe hypoglycemic episodes (i.e. requiring assistance of another person) within the past year, or any hospitalization or emergency room visit due to poor diabetic control within the past 6 months
  • Subjects who had been treated with insulin with a total insulin dose of >1.5 IU/kg/day
  • Pregnant and nursing women
  • Female subjects of childbearing potential (those who are not surgically sterile or who are less than 2 years postmenopausal) unwilling or unable to use reliable contraceptive measures. Reliable contraceptive measures included the following: systemic contraceptive (oral, implant, injection), diaphragm with intravaginal spermicide, cervical cap, intrauterine device, or condom with spermicide.
  • Any condition requiring the regular use of any medication if the regular use of this medication interfered with the study conduct
  • Abuse of alcoholic beverages (as defined in Appendix B of the protocol)
  • Treatment with oral antidiabetic drugs within the last 4 weeks
  • Treatment in the previous 3 months with any drug known to have a well-defined potential for toxicity concerning vital organs
  • Symptoms of any major internal medical disease in the 4 weeks before the study which, according to the investigator's opinion, could interfere with the purposes of the study
  • History of hypersensitivity to any drugs that have a similar chemical structure to the study drug
  • History or presence of gastrointestinal, liver, or kidney disease or other conditions known to interfere with the absorption, distribution, metabolism, or excretion of drugs
  • Blood donation during the previous 3 months
  • Positive HIV- or hepatitis B/C-test
  • Progressive fatal disease
