    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Very low birth weight infants requiring intensive care have relative insulin deficiency often leading to hyperglycaemia during the first week of life. There is increasing evidence that the early postnatal period is critical for pancreatic development. This has implications both in terms of acute glucose control but also relative insulin deficiency is likely to play a role in poor postnatal growth, which has been associated with later motor and cognitive impairment.
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To investigate whether an early fixed dose insulin infusion, combined with variable dextrose support to maintain normoglycaemia, will reduce mortality at 28 days of age in the very low birth weight neonate.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    total number of days in neonatal intensive care prior to discharge home;
    (ii) episodes of sepsis in the first 2 weeks of life;
    (iii) growth at 28 days;
    (iv) severity of retinopathy of prematurity;
    (v) incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis
    (vi) incidence of intracranial haemorrhage
    (vii) chronic lung disease
    (viii) mortality before expected date of delivery
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Information not present in EudraCT
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    i) <1500g
    ii) <24 hours of age
    iii) Requiring intensive care and in whom it is considered appropriate to continue intensive care
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    i) Maternal diabetes including gestational diabetes
    ii) Babies where the appropriateness of continuing intensive care is being discussed
    iii) Major congenital anomalies
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Efficacy outcomes
    (i) Blood glucose control over the first week of life as assessed by the MiniMed subcutaneous continuous glucose monitor (CGMS)
    Primary outcome: Death within and including the first 28 days after delivery (where day 1 is considered as the first day of life)
    Secondary outcomes:
    i. Days of Neonatal Intensive Care: As defined by BAPM 200140 (appendix 1).
    ii. Episodes of sepsis in the first 2 weeks:
    a) Culture positive systemic infection will be defined as microbiologically positive cultures of blood, cerebrospinal fluid or suprapubic aspirate of urine plus clinical signs of sepsis.
    b) Culture negative infection will be defined as clinical signs suggestive of sepsis and considered to warrant >48 hours of antibiotics but with negative cultures.
    iii. Growth: All babies will have measurements of weight, length and head circumference at birth and every seven completed days after recruitment until 28 days of age. Growth will be assessed as change in weight, length and head circumference standard deviation score (SDS) from birth to 28 days of age.
    iv. Retinopathy of Prematurity: All these babies will be routinely screened (appendix 1), for retinopathy of prematurity and will be graded using the internationally recognised grading system 41,42 (appendix 1). Infants will be classified by the most severe degree of retinopathy.
    v. Incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis: defined as radiological evidence of necrotizing entercolitis assessed by consultant radiologist (appendix 1).
    vi. Incidence of intracranial haemorrhage: defined as cranial ultrasound evidence as assessed by Consultant Neonatologist (appendix 1).
    vii. Chronic Lung disease: defined as respiratory support or oxygen dependency at 36 weeks corrected gestational age 43 (appendix 1)
    viii. Death before expected date of delivery: taken as date considered to be most accurate estimate of delivery date
    Efficacy:
    i. Percent of time normoglycaemic: All babies will have a continuous glucose sensor in situ for the 7 completed days. Sensors will be inserted within 24 hours of birth and left in situ for 7 complete days from the time of insertion. This will take a measure of interstitial glucose every 5 minutes and will give an assessment of glucose control throughout the first week. The percent of time spent with blood glucose <2.6mmol/l, 2.6-10.0mmol/l, >10 mmol/l and <4.0, 4.0-8.0mmol/l, >8.0mmol/l will be measured.
    ii. IGF-I and IGFBP-1: measured in blood taken on days 1, 3, 8 and 28
    iii) cytokines: measured in blood taken on days 1, 3, 8 and 28
    iv) protein catabolism: measured by urinary 3-methylhistidine/creatinine ratio on day
