  Purpose
This trial is conducted in Asia. The aim of the trial is to compare the glycaemic control of Levemir® (insulin detemir) administered once daily according to two titration algorithms after 20 weeks in subjects with type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled on metformin treatment with or without other anti-diabetic drugs (OADs).

Official Title: A 20-week, Randomised, Multi-centre, Open-labelled Trial Comparing the Glycaemic Control of Levemir® Administered Once Daily According to Two Titration Algorithms (3-0-3 Algorithm and 2-4-6-8 Algorithm) After 20 Weeks in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Inadequately Controlled on Metformin Treatment in Korea

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) From Baseline. [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 20 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in glycosylated haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) (%) from baseline after 20 weeks of treatment.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in HbA1c [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in HbA1c at 12 weeks of treatment from visit 2.

  • Proportion of Subjects Achieving HbA1c Below 7.0% [ Time Frame: Week 20 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Responder was a dichotomous endpoint (responder/non-responder) that was defined based on whether a subject had met the ADA HbA1c target at end of trial (HbA1c < 7.0% at end of trial) during 20 weeks of treatment.

  • Change in Fasting Plasma Glucose From Baseline [ Time Frame: week 0, week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in fasting plasma glucose from baseline.

  • Incidence of Hypoglycaemic Episodes : Nocturnal (23:00-05:59) and Over 24 Hours. [ Time Frame: At 20 weeks of treatment and over 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    All plasma glucose values:

    • equal or below 3.9 mmol/L (70 mg/dL) or
    • higher than 3.9 mmol/L (70 mg/dL) when they occur in conjunction with hypoglycaemic symptoms.

  • Change in Fasting Plasma Glucose From Baseline [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 20 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in fasting plasma glucose from baseline.

  • Incidence of Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Week 20 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A treatment emergent adverse event (TEAE) was defined as an event that had onset date on or after the first day of exposure to randomised treatment and no later than the day of visit 22.(week 20)

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 3-0-3 Algorithm
A once daily dosage of Insulin detemir (Levemir®) 100 U/mL 3 mL FlexPen® for subcutaneous administration was selected for this trial.During the treatment period insulin detemir was adjusted by the subject themselves (self-titration). Self-titration was performed every 3 days based on the lowest of three previous consecutive pre-breakfast SMPG values.Based on this glucose value, self-adjustment of insulin detemir dose was done.Metformin and Sulfonlylurea were allowed as OADs.
Drug: insulin detemir
Insulin detemir was administered once daily to the subjects. The dose was titrated based on the previous breakfast SMPG values.
Experimental: 2-4-6-8 Algorithm

Drug: insulin detemir
Insulin detemir was administered once daily ti the subjects.The dose was titrated based on the previous breakfast SMPG values.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • - Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus at least 3 months prior to Visit 1 (week -2)
  • - Treatment with at least 1000 mg metformin per day with/without other OADs at a stable dose (at either the maximal tolerated dose or at least half of the maximum recommended dose according to the package insert) for at least 3 months prior to Visit 1
  • - Insulin-naïve subjects

  • - The receipt of any investigational product within 4 weeks prior to Visit 1
  • - Any contraindication to insulin detemir according to the domestic labelling
  • - Anticipated change of dose of any systemic treatment with products, which in the investigator's opinion could interfere with glucose metabolism (such as systemic corticosteroids, beta-blockers, monoamine oxidase [MAO] inhibitors)
  • - Clinically significant diseases which, in the investigator's opinion, may confound the results of the trial or pose additional risk in administering trial product
  • - Any conditions that the investigator judges would interfere with trial participation or evaluation of the results
