A Study of LY2605541 and Glargine in Participants With Type 1 Diabetes

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Eli Lilly and Company Identifier:
First received: January 14, 2013
Last updated: December 16, 2013
Last verified: December 2013
This study has two parts. Each participant will receive a daily injection of LY2605541 during one treatment period and a daily injection of insulin glargine during one treatment period. Each treatment period is 2 to 3 weeks and is followed by a procedure to lower blood sugar levels to see how the body recovers after each treatment.
