BACKGROUND: A large proportion of patients with T2DM in China do not meet accepted HbA1c targets despite the availability of guidelines that describe a treatment pathway for achieving glycemic control. The aim of this study is to identify the fasting plasma glucose (FPG) target that will provide the highest control rate of HbA1c <7 % in Chinese patients with T2DM treated with an insulin glargine-based regimen as an adjunct to an established OAD regimen. This information will support improvements in diabetes care management in China...

OBJECTIVES: Once-daily insulin degludec/liraglutide (IDegLira) is the first basal insulin and glucagon like peptide-1 receptor agonist combined in one delivery device. Our aim was to investigate the cost effectiveness of IDegLira vs. basal insulin intensification therapies for patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus uncontrolled on basal insulin (glycosylated haemoglobin; HbA1c >7.5 %; 58 mmol/mol) in a UK setting. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Baseline cohort and clinical parameters were sourced from a pooled analysis comparing IDegLira with basal insulin plus liraglutide and basal-bolus therapy, and from the DUAL™ V trial comparing IDegLira with up-titrated insulin glargine (IGlar; Lantus(®))...

An active 28-year-old man with type 1 diabetes mellitus reported a reduced number of hypoglycaemic episodes following change in basal regime insulin glargine from U100 Lantus to U300 Toujeo. Consequently, an improved quality of life was also reported. Flash-based glucose monitoring was utilised to record 24-hour continuous glucose levels throughout two comparable 60-day periods before and after the change in regimen. Low blood glucose was most likely between 03:00 and 08:00. Nocturnal hypoglycaemic episodes (≤3...

This article presents a new formulation of insulin glargine concentrated at 300 U/mL (Gla-300). It is commercialized under the trade name of Toujeo® in an optimized pre-filled SoloStar™ pen for the treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetes in adults. Besides a threefold higher concentration compared to the classical insulin Lantus® (100 U/mL or Gla-100), both pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles of Gla-300 are flatter and longer (more than 24 hours) and have a lesser intra-/inter-variability, which makes them more reproducible...

Insulin glargine 300 U/mL (Toujeo(®)) is a long-acting basal insulin analogue approved for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. Insulin glargine 300 U/mL has a more stable and prolonged pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic profile than insulin glargine 100 U/mL (Lantus(®)), with a duration of glucose-lowering activity exceeding 24 h. In several 6-month phase III trials, insulin glargine 300 U/mL achieved comparable glycaemic control to that seen with insulin glargine 100 U/mL in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, albeit with consistently higher daily basal insulin requirements...

Superoxide (O 2 (·-) ) overproduction, by decreasing the nitric oxide ((·)NO) bioavailability, contributes to vascular complications in type 1 diabetes. In this disease, the vascular O 2 (·-) can be produced by the NADPH oxidase (NOX), nitric oxide synthase (NOS), and xanthine oxidase (XO). This study aimed to determine the contribution of each enzymatic pathway in hyperglycemia-induced O 2 (·-) overproduction, and the effects of an endurance training program and insulin therapy, associated or not, on the O 2 (·-) production (amount and related enzymes) in diabetic rats...
