Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the efficacy of Generex Oral-lyn™ RapidMist™ System and standard regular human insulin therapy as measured by HbA1c, in type-1 diabetes mellitus subjects on BID NPH intermediate acting insulin therapy [ Time Frame: change in HbA1c from the Day 0 (V3) to Day 180 (V9) of Treatment Phase. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the safety, tolerability, and satisfaction with Generex Oral-lyn™ therapy when administered by the RapidMist™ Diabetes Management System [ Time Frame: 26 week ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Detailed Description:

This is a 26 week open-label, randomized, multi-center, active comparator study to compare oral spray insulin (Generex Oral-lyn™) with regular human insulin therapy as measured by HbA1c, and number of hypoglycaemic episodes in type-1 diabetes mellitus subject. All subjects will be on BID NPH intermediate acting insulin therapy. If subject is using long acting insulin (Glargine, Detemir, etc.), he/she must be switched to NPH intermediate acting insulin. If on insulin analogue (Novolog, Lispro, Aspart, Aphidra, Glulisine, or any other analogue available in the subject's geographical area), the subject must be switched to regular human insulin 3 times a day.
