New Data From Head-to-Head Study Confirms Once-Daily Levemir(R) is as Effective as Glargine over a 24-Hour Period in Subjects with Type 2 Diabetes
Date:6/8/2008

argine cohorts have similar demographic and clinical profiles. Primary outcomes included DACON of insulin detemir or insulin glargine, A1C levels following initiation of insulin therapy, and overall and diabetes-related cost.

Following the six-month analysis period, adjusted DACON for basal only insulin detemir and insulin glargine cohorts were 29.3 and 29.6 units/day respectively (p=0.93). No significant difference in diabetes-related pharmacy cost was observed ($1,277 vs. $1,149; p=0.23).

About Levemir(R) (insulin detemir [rDNA origin] injection)

Levemir(R) (insulin detemir [rDNA origin] injection) is a long-acting insulin analog indicated for once- or twice-daily subcutaneous administration for the treatment of adults and children with type 1 diabetes mellitus and adult patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who require basal (long-acting) insulin for the control of hyperglycemia. Levemir(R) has a relatively flat action profile with up to 24 hours duration of action. It can be added to oral anti-diabetic agents, or used in combination with a rapid-acting insulin. Levemir(R) is available in FlexPen(R), a prefilled disposable insulin pen for easy, discreet dosing and in vials.

Levemir(R) was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in June 2005 and was launched in the U.S. in March 2006. Levemir(R) has been available for use in Europe since March 2004 and is currently approved in 50 countries worldwide. Levemir(R) is contraindicated in patients hypersensitive to insulin detemir or its excipients. Hypoglycemia is the most common adverse effect of all insulin therapies, including Levemir(R). As with all insulins, the timing of hypoglycemic events may differ among various insulin formulations. Glucose monitoring is recommended for all patients with diabetes. Other adverse events commonly associated with insulin therapy may include injection site reactions (on average 3-4 percent of patients in clinical trials) such as lipodystrophy
