This study has been terminated.

Last updated: February 28, 2017
Last verified: February 2017

This trial is conducted in Europe, Asia, Oceania and the United States of America (USA).

This is a one-year clinical trial to compare the safety of inhaled preprandial human insulin to subcutaneous insulin aspart in subjects with type 1 or 2 diabetes and asthma.

Condition Intervention Phase
Diabetes Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 Asthma Drug: insulin aspart Drug: inhaled human insulin Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Inhaled Preprandial Human Insulin With the AERx® iMS Versus Subcutaneous Injected Insulin Aspart in Subjects With Diabetes and Asthma: A 52-week, Open-label, Multinational, Randomised, Parallel Trial to Investigate Long-term Safety

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

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in lung function, chest X-rays, or asthma exacerbation frequency [ Time Frame: after 52 weeks of treatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Diabetes control measured by change in HbA1c [ Time Frame: from baseline to end of treatment ]
  • Laboratory assessments (biochemistry, insulin antibodies, blood count) [ Time Frame: from baseline to end of treatment ]
  • Preprandial insulin doses [ Time Frame: for the duration of the trial ]

Enrollment: 10
Actual Study Start Date: August 30, 2007
Study Completion Date: February 28, 2008
Primary Completion Date: February 28, 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A Drug: inhaled human insulin
Treat-to-target dose titration scheme, inhalation.
Active Comparator: B Drug: insulin aspart
Treat-to-target dose titration scheme, injection s.c.
Other Names:
  • NovoRapid®
  • NovoLog®

Detailed Description:
The decision to discontinue the development of AERx® is not due to any safety concerns. An analysis concluded that fast-acting inhaled insulin in the form it is known today, is unlikely to offer significant clinical or convenience benefits over injections of modern insulin with pen devices.
