World's Largest Study on Insulin Therapy Completes Recruitment With 60,000 Patients
Date:7/19/2010

ZURICH, July 19, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Novo Nordisk announced the landmark recruitment of the 60,000th patient in the A1chieve(R) study - an observational study designed to investigate the effects of modern insulins in the management of type 2 diabetes.[1]

Spanning 28 countries across 4 continents and involving more than 3300 physicians, A1chieve(R) is set to be the world's largest observational study in insulin therapy.

Approximately 70 percent of the world's 285 million people with diabetes are living in these 28 emerging countries where there is a rising need and interest to look at differences in physician decisions in the management of diabetes.[2]

"Multinational observational studies like A1chieve(R) provide valuable insights in the way current therapies are applied when it comes to varying cultural, economic and epidemiological circumstances," said Philip Home, Professor of Diabetes Medicine at Newcastle University England and Chair of the A1chieve(R) Global Advisory Board.

In order to mimic the natural secretion of insulin in the body, commercially available insulin preparations are used in different ways (regimens) based on an individual's need and prevailing local practices. However it is important to evaluate these different regimens in a real life setting.

"Once completed A1chieve(R) will provide locally relevant information on the effective use of modern insulins across different regimens. This information could be further useful to inform and improve the local guidelines on the management of type 2 diabetes" added Professor Home.
