Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43936   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7310   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.   The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).

    Phase 1 trials conducted solely on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To confirm superiority on glycaemic control of liraglutide versus liraglutide placebo after 26 weeks of treatment when added to pre-existing basal insulin analogue treatment (with or without concomitant metformin treatment) in subjects with type 2 diabetes.
    Protection of trial subjects
    The trial was conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki (2008) and ICH Good Clinical Practice (1996) and FDA 21 CFR 312.120.
    Background therapy
    All subjects were on pre-trial basal insulin analogue regimen ± metformin. Basal insulin therapy was insulin glargine (100 U/mL, s.c. injection) or insulin detemir (100 U/mL, s.c. injection). Oral antidiabetic drug metformin was administered as a tablet with a total daily dose of ≥1500 mg, divided into one to three doses per day.

    Pre-assignment
    Screening details
    All subjects were on pre-trial basal insulin analogue regimen ± metformin. Basal insulin therapy was insulin glargine (100 U/mL, s.c. injection) or insulin detemir (100 U/mL, s.c. injection).

    Blinding implementation details
    The subjects were randomised in a 1:1 manner to receive either liraglutide or liraglutide placebo using the interactive voice/web response system (IV/WRS, Visit 2). Liraglutide and liraglutide placebo were considered investigational medicinal products (IMPs), and were blinded throughout the trial.

    Liraglutide was administered subcutaneously (s.c. injection, under the skin) once daily (OD) for 26 weeks in combination with pre-trial basal insulin analogue regimen ± metformin. The starting dose of the liraglutide was 0.6 mg/day; dose was escalated to 1.2 mg/day after one week and 1.8 mg/day after 2 weeks; dose was maintained at 1.8 mg day for subsequent weeks until the end of the trial. All subjects continued their pre-trial insulin therapy of insulin glargine (100 U/mL, s.c. injection) or insulin detemir (100 U/mL, s.c. injection). Oral anti diabetic drug metformin was administered as a tablet with a total daily dose of ≥1500 mg, divided into one to three doses per day.

    Notes
    [1] - The null hypothesis of no difference between the two treatment arms with regard to changes from baseline in HbA1c (%) after 26 weeks of randomised treatment was analysed using a mixed model repeated measurements (MMRM) analysis with treatment, country, stratification groups as factors and baseline HbA1c as a covariate, all nested within visit.
