The purpose of the study is to compare the effect in blood sugar control between Lantus and twice daily intermediate acting insulins (NPH or Lente) when used as the basal insulin in a multiple daily injection setting with fast acting insulin (Lispro)

Condition Intervention Phase

Drug: Lantus (insulin glargine [rDNA origin] injection)
Drug: Humulin N
Drug: Humulin L
Drug: Lispro
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Morning LANTUS v. Intermediate-acting Insulin 2x/Day as Basal Insulin in a Multiple Daily Inj. w/ Humalog in Adolescents w/ Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus: an Active-controlled, Open, Randomized, Gender-stratified, Two-arm, Parallel-group Study

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • to measure change in glycemic control as measured by hemoglobin A1c (A1c). [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint (last available post-treatment assessment) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in A1c [ Time Frame: from baseline to individual study time points ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage of subjects achieving an A1c ≤7.0; percent of preteens (12 years and below) achieving 8%; teens (13-18 years) achieving 7.5% [ Time Frame: During the study conduct ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in fasting self-monitored blood glucose (SMBG) for weekdays, weekends and weekday/weekend combined [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in urinary spot random microalbumin-to-creatinine (A/C) ratio [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in 8-point blood glucose profiles for weekdays, weekends, and weekday/weekend combined [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in average basal insulin doses [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in lipids (total cholesterol [TC], high-density lipoprotein cholesterol [HDL], low-density lipoprotein cholesterol [LDL], and triglycerides [TGs]) [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in glucose [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of hypoglycemia [ Time Frame: from the informed consent signature to the end of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: from the informed consent signature to the end of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clinical values: physical examination, vital signs, change in age-adjusted body mass index (BMI) [ Time Frame: from the informed consent signature to the end of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
