Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose-corrected area-under-the serum insulin concentration vs. time curve for inhaled TI and subcutaneous RHI at timepoints -120, -90, -60, 0, 1, 3, 7, 12, 20, 30, 45, 60 and 90 minutes, and 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 hours relative to treatment [ Time Frame: crossover every 3-28 days for up to 20 weeks ]
  • Area under the glucose infusion rate for inhaled TI and subcutaneous RHI at timepoints -120, -90, -60, 0, 1, 3, 7, 12, 20, 30, 45, 60 and 90 minutes, and 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 hours relative to treatment [ Time Frame: crossover every 3-28 days for up to 20 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety variables included adverse events (AEs), clinical laboratory tests, HbA1c, pulmonary function tests, vital signs, physical examinations, and diabetes-specific signs (ie, hypoglycemia) [ Time Frame: crossover every 3-28 days for up to 20 weeks ]
