SAN DIEGO, November 10, 2022–(COMMERCIAL WIRE)–Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNDM), a leading insulin delivery and diabetes technology company, announced the results of a prospective, multicenter, single-arm study of adults living with type 2 diabetes. who achieved improvement in all clinical endpoints using the t:slim X2 insulin pump with Control-IQ technology.1
Presented today at the 22nd Annual Meeting of Diabetes Technology, data demonstrated the system to be safe over 6 weeks of use, with substantial improvement in time in range and mean glucose associated with a reduction in hyperglycemia and no increase in continuous glucose monitor (CGM). ) measured hypoglycemia.* Both previous users of multiple daily injections (MDI) and previous users of basal insulin alone showed similar levels of improvement. Study participants indicated a high level of satisfaction with the system.
“Our goal with this study was to show that Control-IQ technology was safe and could offer significant benefit to people with type 2 diabetes, and we achieved that,” said Carol Levy, MD, CDCES, study protocol director and professor of Medicine. (Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Bone Diseases) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “The 15 percent improvement in time in range over prior therapy represents a 3.6 hour per day increase in time in range, without hypoglycemic events.”
“The results presented today are consistent with numerous studies supporting the benefits of pump therapy for people living with type 2 diabetes,” said Jordan Pinsker, MD, vice president and medical director of Tandem Diabetes Care. “People living with type 2 diabetes often take other medications in combination with their insulin therapy. The combination of safety results and high satisfaction scores seen in this population, who were able to continue on these existing medications during the study, shows that Control-IQ technology could be a powerful management solution for their therapy needs.”
Use of Control-IQ technology was shown to be safe for 6 weeks of use
The mean time on range for all participants improved by 15 percentage points, an increase of 3.6 hours per day
Average time in range for previous MDI/pump users improved 16 percentage points
Median time in range for previous Basal-only insulin users improved 13 percentage points
The average time >180 mg/dl improved 15 percentage points, which represents a reduction of 3.6 hours per day
Mean time >250 improved 5.6 percentage points, a reduction of almost an hour a day
No increase in hypoglycemia measured by CGM
System performance and usability
The mean time in closed circuit was 96%
Study participants indicated a high level of satisfaction with the system
Most participants used additional glycemic therapies in addition to insulin and continued to use them throughout the trial.
This prospective multicenter trial included 30 adults with type 2 diabetes from three clinical centers: Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York City, NY; Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN; and Texas Diabetes and Endocrinology, Austin, TX. The study was coordinated by the JAEB Center for Health Research, in Tampa, FL. Participants with type 2 diabetes (mean age 54±12 years, mean HbA1c 8.6±1.2, mean BMI 31) using MDI (N=15), pump (N=2), or non-bolus basal insulin (N=13 ) collected unblinded (baseline) CGM data followed by an open-loop period before starting use of Control-IQ technology for 6 weeks.
Please note that Control-IQ technology is not approved for use in people with type 2 diabetes. This study was conducted under an investigational device exemption with a modified pump.
*Time in range is defined as 70-180 mg/dL.
