Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Prospective, Multi-Center, Open-Label, Randomized, Controlled Clinical Trial Comparing the Efficacy and Safety in Subjects With Type 1 Diabetes Receiving Subcutaneous Basal Insulin and Prandial Inhalation of Technosphere/Insulin Versus Subcutaneous Basal and Prandial Insulin Over a 52-Week Treatment Period and a 4-Week Follow Up

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare the Mean Change From Baseline to Week 52 in HbA1c [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Weight to Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    Change from baseline in weight at Week 52

  • Change From Baseline in Fasting Plasma Glucose to Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    Change from baseline in fasting plasma glucose at Week 52

  • Number of Subjects Achieving Week 52 HbA1c Levels Less Than or Equal to 7.0% [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    Number of subjects achieving week 52 HbA1c levels less than or equal to 7.0%

  • Incidence of Total Hypoglycemia [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    Defined as hypoglycemic symptoms that are relieved with carbohydrate intake or blood glucose measurement <= 63 mg/dL, regardless of symptoms.

  • Incidence of Severe Hypoglycemia [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]

    Severe hypoglycemia occurs when all 3 of the following occur simultaneously:

    • Subject requires the assistance of another person;
    • Subject exhibits at least 1 cognitive neurological symptom (memory loss, confusion, uncontrollable behavior, irrational behavior, unusual difficulty in awakening, seizure, loss of consciousness);
    • Measured BG is ≤ 49 mg/dL (2.7 mmol/L), or, in the absence of a BG measurement, clinical symptoms are reversed by oral carbohydrates, sc glucagon or intravenous glucose administration; OR,
    • Measured BG is ≤ 36 mg/dL (2.0 mmol/L) with or without symptoms.

  • Total Hypoglycemia Event Rate [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    Number of Hypoglycemic Events/Total Subject Exposure Time (in months)

  • Severe Hypoglycemia Event Rate [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    Number of Severe Hypoglycemic Events/Total Subject Exposure Time (in months)
