Brief Summary:

This is an open label, randomized, parallel group comparison of the immunogenicity safety of Wockhardt's human insulin and isophane insulin compared with the Novo Nordisk's yeast based human insulin products (marketed in USA) in type 1 diabetics.

There are two phases of the study, which are as follows:

  1. Phase 1 is a comparative phase in which there will be 2 arms (which are described in the section below).
  2. Phase 2 is a follow up phase only applicable to Wosulin Arm.

The study will last for 54 weeks for the patients enrolled in Wosulin arm and approximately 28 weeks for the patients enrolled in the comparator arm.

Two hundred and forty two patients will be enrolled considering an estimated dropout rate of 15% for a sample size of approximately 105 evaluable patients per arm. The total planned enrollment period for this study is approximately 3 months (90 days).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Wosulin (N or 70/30 with R)
Basal bolus conventional Insulin viz. Wosulin (N or 70/30 with R) to be injected subcutaneously.
Biological: Wosulin (N or 70/30 with R)
Basal bolus conventional Insulin viz. Wosulin (N or 70/30 with R) to be injected subcutaneously.
Other Name: Wosulin R, Wosulin N, Wosulin 70/30

Active Comparator: Novolin® (N or 70/30 with R)
Basal bolus conventional Insulin viz. Novolin® (N or 70/30 with R) to be injected subcutaneously.
Biological: Novolin® (N or 70/30 with R)
Basal bolus conventional Insulin viz. Novolin® (N or 70/30 with R) to be injected subcutaneously.
Other Name: Novolin® R, Novolin® N and Novolin® 70/30

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in HbAlc from baseline to 6 months of treatment between Wosulin arm and Novolin arm(as surrogate indicator of change in insulin antibodies titers between the two treatment arms). [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation between change in HbA1c and change in anti insulin and insulin neutralizing antibodies. [ Time Frame: 6 months and 12 months ]
    Insulin dose will be used as a covariate

  2. To compare the change from baseline in the level of serum anti insulin antibodies and insulin neutralizing antibodies between the two arms [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  3. Compare the change in Insulin dose between the two arms [ Time Frame: 3 and 6 months ]
    Glycated hemoglobin levels and the number of hypoglycemic episodes will be the covariants for this analysis

  4. Correlation of the immunogenicity with hypoglycemia, local allergic reactions and systemic allergic reactions will be evaluated. [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months ]
    Immunogenicity is measured as percentage change in serum antiinsulin antibodies and insulin neutralizing antibodies.
