Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Insulin Detemir-insulin Aspart Cross-reacting Antibodies [ Time Frame: week 0, 52 and 104 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Estimated amount of bound antibodies in percent of total antibodies. The primary analysis of cross-reacting antibodies included results from blood samples taken before insulin detemir and less than 3 hours after insulin aspart injection. In addition, an analysis was done including results from samples taken before insulin detemir and less than 2.5 hours after insulin aspart injection.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Development of Insulin Detemir Specific Antibodies and Insulin Aspart Specific Antibodies [ Time Frame: At 0, 52 and 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Amount of Insulin Detemir and Insulin Aspart specific antibodies in percent of total antibodies after 0, 52 and 104 weeks.

  • Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) measured after 104 weeks.

  • Fasting Plasma Glucose Values [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FPG (Fasting Plasma Glucose) values after 104 weeks.

  • Hypoglycaemic Episodes [ Time Frame: Weeks 0-104 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Mild: signs/symptoms but able to treat him/herself. Moderate: signs/symptoms not able to treat him/herself. Responds to oral treatment.

    Severe: signs/symptoms and unable to treat him/herself. semiconscious/unconscious/in coma +/- convulsion and may require parenteral treatment.

  • BMI (Body Mass Index) [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    BMI (Body Mass Index) after 104 weeks.

  • SD-score (Z-score) for Body Weight [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Standard deviation-score (SD-score) after 104 weeks. The SD-score for weight was calculated based on a British reference population from 1990. To estimate the growth of children, standardised mean weight values were calculated for each month of age and for each sex. Thus, a child with a weight equal to the mean value for its age and sex has an SD score of 0, while a child with a weight 2 SDs above the mean value for its age and sex has an SD score of +2.

  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Diabetic ketoacidosis requiring hospitalisation

  • Insulin Dose [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Daily insulin doses (basal (Insulin Detemir) and bolus (Insulin Aspart)) at week 104.

  • Laboratory Values: Albumin Serum and Total Protein Serum (g/dL) [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Albumin Serum and Total Protein Serum after 104 weeks.

  • Laboratory Values: Creatine Serum Umol/L [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Creatine serum after 104 weeks.

  • Laboratory Values: Sodium Serum, Potassium Serum and Haemoglobin (mmol/L) [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Sodium Serum, Potassium Serum and Haemoglobin after 104 weeks.

  • Laboratory Values: Alkaline Phosphatase Serum, Alanine Aminotransferase Serum and Lactate Dehydrogenase Serum (U/L) [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Alkaline phosphatase serum, Alanine Aminotransferase serum and Lactate Dehydrogenase serum after 104 weeks.

  • Laboratory Values: Leukocytes and Thrombocytes [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Leukocytes and Thrombocytes after 104 weeks.

  • Fundoscopy/Fundus Photography [ Time Frame: at 52 weeks and at 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Fundoscopy after 104 weeks. Abn. CS = Abnormal, clinically significant Abn. NCS = Abnormal, Not clinically significant

    Abn. CS = Abnormal, clinically significant Abn. NCS = Abnormal, Not clinically significant

  • Vital Signs: Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Blood pressure (Systolic and Diastolic) after 104 weeks.

  • Vital Signs: Pulse [ Time Frame: At 104 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Pulse at week 104

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Informed Consent obtained before any trial-related activities. (Trial-related activities are any procedure that would not have been performed during normal management of the subject). The parents or legal representative of the subject must sign and date the Informed Consent Form.
