type 1 diabetes
Severe hypoglycaemia (SH) remains a challenge to people with type 1 diabetes (T1DM), and new‐generation basal insulins may improve patient outcomes. This post hoc meta‐analysis explored the risk of SH with insulin glargine 300 U/mL (Gla‐300) versus glargine 100 U/mL (Gla‐100) in a pooled population with T1DM from three randomized, multicentre, 6‐month similarly designed phase 3 trials: EDITION 4, EDITION JP 1 and EDITION JUNIOR. Endpoints included incidence and time to first occurrence of SH. Among 629 and 626 participants randomized to Gla‐300 and Gla‐100, respectively, glycated haemoglobin reductions were similar. Fewer participants experienced ≥1 SH event with Gla‐300 (6.2%) than with Gla‐100 (9.3%). From baseline to month 6, the risk of a first SH event was lower with Gla‐300: hazard ratio 0.65 [95% confidence interval (CI) 0.44–0.98; stratified log‐rank test P = 0.038]. SH event rates were numerically lower with Gla‐300 versus Gla‐100 from baseline to month 6 [relative risk (RR) 0.80 (95% CI 0.49–1.29); P = 0.356] and baseline to week 8 [RR 0.73 (95% CI 0.37–1.44); P = 0.369]. Thus, Gla‐300 demonstrated similar glycaemic control with lower risk of SH versus Gla‐100, particularly during the titration period.
