Upstate Active Clinical Trials Seeking Participants
A 6-Month, Multicenter, Randomized, Open-label, Parallel-group Study Comparing the Efficacy and Safety of a New Formulation of Insulin Glargine and Lantus? Injected in the Morning or Evening in Patients with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus with a 6-month Safety Extension Period
What is the purpose of the study?
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness, safety and tolerability of a new more concentrated form of insulin glargine (named HOE901-U300) with that of the currently marketed insulin glargine U100, also known as Lantus? in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus. In other words, both groups in this study will be taking active glargine but one group will have a more concentrated form.
Who is eligible?
The study is open to individuals with type 1 diabetes who are at least 18 years old and have been treated for at least one year with a long-acting (basal) insulin like Levemir, Lantus, or NPH plus a short-acting (bolus) insulin taken before meals such as Humalog, Novolog, or Apidra.
