Drug: insulin degludec
Drug: insulin degludec/insulin aspart
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment

Further study details as provided by Novo Nordisk A/S:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Area under the glucose infusion rate curve during one dosing interval [ Time Frame: At steady state (0-24 hours) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum glucose infusion rate (GIRmax) [ Time Frame: At steady state (within 0-24 hours after last dosing) ]
  • Area under the serum insulin degludec concentration-time curve during one dosing interval [ Time Frame: At steady state (within 0-24 hours after last dosing) ]
  • Maximum observed serum insulin degludec concentration [ Time Frame: At steady state (within 0-24 hours after last dosing) ]
  • Area under the serum insulin aspart concentration-time curve [ Time Frame: From 0 to 12 hours ]
  • Maximum observed serum insulin aspart concentration [ Time Frame: Within 0-12 hours after dosing of IDegAsp ]

Enrollment: 22
Study Start Date: April 2012
