Details and patient eligibility


The aim of the TRICIDIA2 study is to compare two modalities of administration of insulin. In our future study, the investigators wish to study if the treatment by continuous infusion of insulin improves the insulinosensitivity of type 2 diabetic patients; the investigators indeed expect that the insulin delivered in a continuous way decreases the insulino-resistance of these patients compared with the intermittent delivering of insulin.

Full description

We wish to use before and after treatment the classic tools of measure of insulinosensitivity / the euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp associated with a measure of the insulinosecretion thanks to a test of load in glucose IV. The coupling in the same procedure of these 2 tests is the Botnia clamp. We also wish to use the continuous measure of subcutaneous glucose during several days to estimate the reduction in the average glycemia on the fast and prandial periods as well as the decrease of the time spent in hyperglycemia during the day. This tool demonstrated its interest in type 2 diabetic population in several studies. Finally the current / spectro-IRM methods of imaging are now validated to quantify and measure exactly the importance of the steatosis, including in type 2 patients, because we know that it is probably the result of the insulino-resistance; We would also like to demonstrate that some genetic polymorphisms of proteins (polymorphisms G / T493 of the MTP, 1927 C/T of the receiver R1 of the adiponectin and 265 C/T of the gene of Apolipoprotéines A) are factors which can modulate the steatosis development in case of type 2 diabetes. In other secondary criteria we wait for an improvement of HbA1c, quality of life of type 2 obese people with regard to the treatment by intensified Multi-injections.

Trial design

Primary purpose

Supportive Care



Interventional model

Parallel Assignment


None (Open label)

60 participants in 2 patient groups

continuous infusion of insulin by pump
Experimental group
in this arm called "continuous infusion of insulin with a pump" the patient receive continuous rapid insulin (APIDRA ®)with an external pump. An hepatic IRM and a botnia test will be practice before and six months after the beginning of this treatment(continuous insulin)
Drug: 2 different procedures of administration of insulin
discontinuous insulin multiple injections
Experimental group
An arm called " intensification of the multiple daily injections ": the patient will receive an additional injection of basal insulin LEVEMIR® : five injections per day (2 injections of Levemir® and 3 injections of Apidra®) instead of four previously (1 injection of Levemir® and 3 injections of Apidra®). An hepatic IRM and a botnia test will be practice before and six months after the beginning of the treatment
Drug: 2 different procedures of administration of insulin
