Efficacy and Safety of Insulin Glargine Versus. Neutral Protamine Hagedorn (NPH) Insulin in Children With Type 1 Diabetes Above 6 Years Old. (Lantus-P-CN)

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Sanofi Identifier:
First received: October 15, 2010
Last updated: March 31, 2014
Last verified: March 2014

Primary Objective:

6 To assess the efficacy of insulin glargine given once daily (QD) on glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels over a period of 24 weeks in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) aged at least 6 years to less than 18 years.

Secondary Objectives:

  • To assess the effects of insulin glargine compared to NPH insulin over 24 weeks on:

    • Percentage of patients reaching International Society of Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD) recommended target of HbA1c < 7.5%,
    • Fasting blood glucose (FBG),
    • Nocturnal blood glucose (BG),
    • 24-hour blood glucose profile based on 8-point self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) values,
    • Daily total insulin dose and basal insulin dose,
    • Rates of asymptomatic and/or symptomatic, severe, nocturnal and nocturnal symptomatic hypoglycemia.
  • To assess the safety and tolerability of insulin glargine versus NPH insulin based on the occurrence of treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs).
  • To assess anti-insulin and anti-glargine antibody development in both groups.
  • To assess insulin glargine pharmacokinetic(PK) for all patients treated with insulin glargine in selected sites with approximately 45% of insulin glargine population to rule out accumulation tendency of insulin glargine after repeated dosing
