Details and patient eligibility


Primary Objective: To compare the efficacy of a new formulation of insulin glargine (HOE901-U300) to Lantus in terms of change of HbA1c from baseline to endpoint (month 6) in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus. . Secondary Objectives: To compare HOE901-U300 and Lantus in terms of: * Percentage of participants reaching target HbA1c and fasting plasma glucose (FPG). * To assess the safety of HOE901-U300 including analysis of events of hypoglycemia, events of hyperglycemia with ketosis, and development of anti-insulin-antibodies.

Full description

The study duration per participant was approximately 58 weeks that consisted of a 2 week screening period, a main 6-month comparative efficacy and safety treatment period, a 6-month comparative safety extension period, and a 4-week post treatment follow up period.


463 patients

Inclusion and exclusion criteria

Inclusion criteria :

  • Children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) for at least 1 year confirmed by typical symptoms at diagnosis and/or by antibody testing [presence of anti-GAD (glutamic acid decarboxylase) or anti-IA2 (islet antigen 2/tyrosine phosphatase) or anti-islet cell antibodies] and/or clinical features (eg, history of ketoacidosis)].
  • Signed written informed consent obtained from parent(s)/legal guardian and written or oral assent obtained from participant.

Exclusion criteria:

  • Age <6 years and >=18 years at randomization.
  • Less than 1 year on insulin treatment prior to screening visit.
  • Less than 6 months on basal plus mealtime insulin and self-monitoring of blood glucose prior to screening visit.
  • Participants using premix insulins in the last 3 months before screening visit or participants using human regular insulin as mealtime insulin in the last 3 months before screening visit.
  • Use of an insulin pump in the last 6 months before screening visit or plans to switch to pump within the next 6 months after screening visit.
  • Any contraindication to use of insulin glargine as defined in the national product label.
  • No willingness to inject insulin glargine (Lantus or HOE901-U300) once daily.
  • HbA1c <7.5% or >11% at screening.
  • Initiation of any glucose-lowering medications in the last 3 months before screening visit.
  • Hospitalization or care in the emergency ward for diabetic ketoacidosis or history of severe hypoglycemia (as defined by need for glucagon or IV glucose) and accompanied by seizure and/or unconsciousness and/or coma in the last 3 months prior to screening visit.
  • Postmenarchal girls not protected by highly-effective method(s) of birth control and/or who were unwilling or unable to be tested for pregnancy. Abstinence from sexual intercourse was considered as an acceptable form of birth control.
  • Pregnant or breast-feeding adolescents, or adolescents who intended to become pregnant during the study period, or who were at risk of getting pregnant due to any psychosocial reason during the study period.
