Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1 Drug: Pramlintide acetate Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Triple-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Multicenter Study to Investigate the Safety of Pramlintide Treatment Employing Pramlintide Dose-Titration Followed by Insulin Dose Optimization in Subjects With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Who Have Not Achieved Glycemic Targets With Intensive Insulin Therapy

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • - To investigate the safety of pramlintide treatment employing dose titration upon initiation of pramlintide followed by insulin dose optimization in subjects with type 1 diabetes. [ Time Frame: 29 Weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:

Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo injection will be supplied in the same 5-mL multidose glass vials with a rubber stopper.Ingredients: D-Mannitol 43.0 mg/mL Metacresol 2.25 mg/mL Glacial acetic acid 1.53 mg/mL Sodium acetate trihydrate 0.61 mg/mL pH 4.0 Water for injection qs to 5.0 mL
Drug: Placebo
The placebo injection will be supplied in the same 5-mL multidose glass vials with a rubber stopper.
Active Comparator: Pramlintide Acetate (AC137)
Pramlintide acetate (AC137) injection is a clear, colorless, sterile solution for SC injection. It consists of pramlintide in sodium acetate buffer, pH 4.0, containing 43 mg/mL mannitol as an iso-osmolality modifier and 2.25 mg/mL metacresol as a preservative. The strength of pramlintide injection is 0.6 mg/mL
Drug: Pramlintide acetate
Pramlintide injection will be supplied in 5-mL multidose glass vials with rubber stoppers.
