Date:9/20/2010

l to 8.0 percent.

Outcomes showed:

  • A1C reductions at week 24 were greater with Lantus® versus all comparators (p<0.001)
  • Efficacy across A1C categories were similar for insulin comparators
  • Hypoglycemia rates (any) were lower with Lantus® versus other insulin comparators (Lantus vs. NPH, p=0.032, Lantus vs. lispro, p=<0.001, Lantus vs. premix, p=004)
  • Hypoglycemic event rates (any) were higher for Lantus versus OADs (p<0.001), although rates of severe hypoglycemia were similar between the two groups.

  • Significant Improvement in A1C Found Independent of Baseline Treatment Regimen(2)"Clinical Outcomes after Basal Insulin Initiation Correlate with Baseline Oral Antidiabetic Drug Therapy: A Pooled Analysis of Clinical Trial Data" [presentation number 960]: This analysis included data from 11 prospective randomized controlled trials of Lantus® with or without OADs in adults with type 2 diabetes. The analysis compared patients given Lantus® (n=2,171) who were taking zero or one OAD at baseline (low use; 1.8% and 45.2%, respectively) with those taking two OADs (52.2%) and patients on metformin only (8.5%) with those on sulfonylurea only (36.5%) or metformin and sulfonylurea (49.9%) at baseline.

    Outcomes showed:

  • At week 24, the reduction in A1C was greatest among patients given Lantus® with low baseline OAD use (0/1 OADs) (p=0.0198) and among those who were taking Lantus and metformin only (p=0.0009)
  • Patients given Lantus® with low baseline OAD use had significantly lower rates of symptomatic hypoglycemia versus those taking two OADs (p=0.0009)
  • Patients given Lantus® who were taking only metformin had lower rates of hypoglycemia than those taking sulfonylurea or metformin plus sulfonylurea (p<0.0001) despite higher insulin doses (53 versus 37.5 versus 38.8 U)
