Basal Analog Study - Comparison of Lantus or Levemir With NPH Insulin From T1DM Diagnosis
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||diabetes mellitus type 1|
|Treatments||nph insulin, glargine, detemir|
|Start date||September 2005|
|End date||March 2011|
|Trial size||120 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01271517, Eudract-number 2005-001726-80|
Hypothesis: Basal insulin analogs with continuous 24-hour delivery of insulin improve glycemic control during the first year of treatment of children/adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM)by preserving endogenous insulin production and a close to normal balance of the GH-IGF-axis.
This a randomized, open-label, parallel-group trial of 120 children, 7 - 17 years of age, newly diagnosed with T1DM. The investigators will investigate whether the use of long-acting basal insulin analogs Lantus (Glargine) or Levemir (Detemir) during the first year of treatment results in improved glycemic control (HbA1c) compared with Insulatard (NPH insulin) when given in a meal insulin therapy regimen with rapid acting Novorapid (insulin aspart). The investigators will explore possible mechanisms of action by determining remaining endogenous insulin production and changes in the GH-IGF-axis. The investigators will also assess changes in body composition and evaluate quality of life in each treatment arm.
