Information source: Sanofi
ClinicalTrials.gov processed this data on August 23, 2015
Link to the current ClinicalTrials.gov record.

Condition(s) targeted: Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

Intervention: Insulin glargine (HOE901) (Drug); NPH insulin (Drug)

Phase: Phase 3

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Sanofi

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Clinical Sciences & Operations, Study Director, Affiliation: Sanofi


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

Clinical Details

Official title: A 24-week, Randomized, Open-label, Parallel Group, Multicenter Comparison of Lantus® (Insulin Glargine) Given Once Daily Versus Neutral Protamine Hagedorn (NPH) Insulin in Children With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Aged at Least 6 Years to Less Than 18 Years

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Absolute change of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c)

Secondary outcome:

Percentage of patients reaching HbA1c < 7.5%

Change in Fasting Blood Glucose (FBG)

Change in nocturnal Blood Glucose (BG)

Change in 24-hour blood glucose profile based on 8-point self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG)

Change in total insulin dose and basal insulin dose

Rate of asymptomatic and/or symptomatic, severe, nocturnal, nocturnal symptomatic hypoglycemia.

Anti-glargine and anti-human insulin antibody assessment

Detailed description: The study duration for each patient is 28 weeks +/- 7 day broken down as follows:

- Screening phase: up to 2 weeks

- Run-in phase: 1 week

- Treatment phase: 24 weeks

- Follow-up: 1 week


Minimum age: 6 Years. Maximum age: 17 Years. Gender(s): Both.


Inclusion criteria:

- Paediatric patients diagnosed with T1DM aged at least 6 years to less than 18 years at

screening. Exclusion criteria:

- Treatment with oral or parenteral glucose-lowering medications other than insulin.

- HbA1c < 7% or > 12 % at screening.
