Trulicity® (dulaglutid): Användning med Insulin Lispro

Dulaglutid 1,5 mg och 0,75 mg en gång i veckan studerades i kombination med insulin lispro

Study Design

AWARD-4, a phase 3, open-label, 52-week study, evaluated the efficacy and safety of once-weekly dulaglutide 1.5 mg or dulaglutide 0.75 mg treatment in comparison with daily basal insulin glargine treatment, both in combination with prandial insulin lispro with or without metformin, in patients with T2DM .1

Patients were randomized (1:1:1) to one of the following treatment groups

  • once-weekly dulaglutide 1.5 mg SC (n=295)

  • once-weekly dulaglutide 0.75 mg SC (n=293), or

  • daily insulin glargine SC (n=296).1

All patients also used insulin lispro with 3 largest meals of the day.1

The insulin glargine dose was titrated using a treat-to-target algorithm based on the median of the previous 3 fasting glucose values.1 The insulin lispro dose was titrated using the algorithm proposed by Bergenstal et al.2

The primary outcome was change in HbA1c from baseline to 26 weeks.1

Efficacy Results

Both dulaglutide 1.5 mg and dulaglutide 0.75 mg treatment were superior (p<.025) to insulin glargine in the change in HbA1c from baseline at 26 weeks and 52 weeks (Table 1. HbA1c Outcomes at 26 and 52 Weeks, in the AWARD-4 Study).1

Safety Results

At 52 weeks, TEAEs were reported in

  • 74% of patients receiving dulaglutide 1.5 mg

  • 78% of patients receiving dulaglutide 0.75 mg, and

  • 70% of patients receiving insulin glargine.1

The rate of total hypoglycemic events was significantly (p=0.0008) higher with insulin glargine treatment compared with dulaglutide 1.5 mg treatment.1


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.3
