  Purpose

This trial is conducted in Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania and South America.

This trial aims for a comparison of biphasic insulin aspart 30 once daily versus insulin glargine once daily all in combination with metformin and glimepiride in insulin naive subjects with type 2 diabetes.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multi-national, Open-labelled, Randomised, Parallel Group, 4 Week run-in and 26 Weeks Treat-to-target Comparison of Biphasic Insulin Aspart 30 Once Daily Versus Insulin Glargine Once Daily Both in Combination With Metformin and Glimepiride in Insulin naïve Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) [ Time Frame: After 26 weeks of treatment ]
    Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c measured in blood samples after 26 weeks of treatment.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 9-point Self-measured Plasma Glucose Profiles [ Time Frame: After 26 weeks of treatment ]
    Glycaemic control measured by 9-point self-measured plasma glucose (SMPG) profiles. The 9 time points for self-measurement during the day were: Before breakfast, 2 hours after breakfast, before lunch, 2 hours after lunch, before dinner, 2 hours after dinner, before bedtime, at 2-4 AM, and before breakfast the following day. Hypoglycaemia episodes were defined as major or minor. Major if the subject was unable to treat her/himself. Minor if subject was able to treat her/himself and plasma glucose was below 3.1 mmol/L or 56 mg/dL.

  • Number of Subjects Achieving the Treatment Target for Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) [ Time Frame: After 26 weeks of treatment ]
    The number of subjects achieving the treatment target for glycosylated haemoglobin A1c after 26 weeks treatment. The treatment targets were: HbA1c <= 6.5% of haemoglobin and HbA1c < 7% of haemoglobin.

  • Treatment Satisfaction as Measured by the Diabetes Medication Satisfaction Questionnaire (Diab MedSat) [ Time Frame: After 26 weeks of treatment ]
    Subjects assessed the burden, efficacy, symptoms and overall score in the treatment satisfaction questionnaire, Diab MedSat (Diabetes Medication Satisfaction questionnaire). The scores were transformed to a 0-100 scale with higher scores indicating greater satisfaction. The score of the subscales was computed as the mean of the items in each subscale.

  • Number of Hypoglycaemic Episodes [ Time Frame: Weeks 0-26 ]
    Total number of hypoglycaemic episodes experienced in each treatment arm. Hypoglycaemic episodes were defined as major, minor, or symptoms only. Major if the subject was unable to treat her/himself. Minor if subject was able to treat her/himself and plasma glucose was below 3.1 mmol/L or 56 mg/dL. Symptoms only if subject was able to treat her/himself and with either no plasma glucose or blood glucose measurement or plasma glucose higher than or equal to 3.1 mmol/L or 56 mg/dL.

  • Number of Subjects Reporting Treatment Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Weeks 0-26 ]
    Number of subjects reporting treatment emergent adverse events during the trial (from week 0 to week 26). Adverse events were reported as treatment emergent if they occurred from the date of first insulin trial product administration up to and including the date of last insulin trial product administration.
