Last updated: March 15, 2007
Last verified: March 2007

This is a questionnaire based study (no study drug is involved) that asks if more patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes on diabetes pills will choose insulin as the next treatment choice if inhaled insulin were available in addition to all currently available treatments, compared with if inhaled insulin was not available as part of currently available treatments.

This study will also ask if patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes currently managed on diabetes pills + once daily insulin will choose as the next treatment choice to take insulin multiple times a day if inhaled insulin were available in addition to all currently available treatments, compared with if inhaled insulin was not available as part of currently available treatments.

Official Title: A US Randomized Questionnaire-Based Trial Assessing The Impact Of The Availability Of Inhaled Insulin On Therapeutic Choice In Patients With Suboptimally Controlled Type 2 Diabetes

Further study details as provided by Pfizer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Will availability of inhaled insulin result in more type 2 diabetes patients choosing a treatment that involves insulin (if now on >2 OAs) or a more intensive insulin regimen (if now on OAs + glargine) compared to only standard therapies available

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine both patient and MD reasons for treatment choices made. Determine if treatment choice is influenced by physician specialty or patient ethnicity. Determine how cost impacts patient treatment choice.
