Trulicity® (dulaglutid): Användning med insulin glargin (AWARD-9)

Trulicity (dulaglutid) 1,5 mg minskade HbA1c signifikant jämfört med placebo vid 28 veckor vid tillsats till insulin glargin med eller utan metformin.

Detailed Information

A phase 3, double-blind, 28-week study (AWARD-9) evaluated the efficacy and safety of once-weekly dulaglutide 1.5 mg administered SC compared with once-weekly placebo when both were added to titrated daily IGlar with or without metformin in patients with T2DM.1

Treatment with dulaglutide 1.5 mg

  • was superior to treatment with placebo in mean change in HbA1c from baseline to 28 weeks (p<.001)

  • resulted in significantly greater reductions in mean FSG and mean BW from baseline to 28 weeks compared with placebo (p<.001), and

  • produced more patients that reached a HbA1c target of less than 7% or less than or equal to 6.5% from baseline, compared with placebo (p<.001) (Table 1).1

a Intent-to-treat population.

b Least-squares mean ± SE.

c p<.001, dulaglutide 1.5 mg vs placebo.

Increases in the mean IGlar dose were significantly smaller in the dulaglutide treatment group, 13±2 units, compared to the placebo group, 26±2 units, at 28 weeks (p<.001).1

The most frequent reasons for discontinuation were patient decision (dulaglutide 1.5 mg, n=3; placebo, n=7) and AE (dulaglutide 1.5 mg, n=6; placebo, n=2).1

TEAEs were reported in significantly more patients who received dulaglutide 1.5 mg, 64%, compared with patients who received placebo, 50% (p=.014).1

The most common TEAEs were GI in nature, and hypoglycemia TEAEs were similar between treatment groups.1

Information from the label

Patients receiving dulaglutide in combination with sulphonylurea or insulin may have an increased risk of hypoglycaemia. The risk of hypoglycaemia may be lowered by a reduction in the dose of sulphonylurea or insulin.2
