Data presented at The 10th International Conference on Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes
BRIDGEWATER, New Jersey, February 16, 2017 --- Valeritas Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: VLRX) today announced data showing greater reductions in A1c and insulin dose in patients with type 2 diabetes who used V-Go® Wearable Insulin Delivery device compared to patients using insulin pen devices. The data were presented as an E-Poster at The 10th International Conference on Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD), February 15 to 18, in Paris, France.
The study was a retrospective analysis based on electronic medical records from a multicenter diabetes system in the United States. Patients with A1c levels greater than seven percent and transitioning from basal only to basal and mealtime insulin were included in the analysis. The primary endpoint was to evaluate the difference in A1c change between V-Go and insulin pens.
One hundred seven patients (50 V-Go and 57 insulin pens) were evaluated. Baseline parameters were similar between the two groups. By 27 weeks, the changes in A1c levels were -1.96% with V-Go and -1.23% with insulin pens for a treatment difference at 27 weeks of 0.73; p=0.011, favoring V-Go. In addition, insulin dose and needle sticks were less with V-Go compared to insulin pens (56 vs 77 units/day; p<0.001 and 1.0 vs 3.6 sticks/day; p<0.001, respectively).
“This study is of particular relevance to European physicians and their patients as insulin pens are the primary delivery system for insulin for patients with type 2 diabetes in Europe,” said John Timberlake, President and Chief Executive Officer of Valeritas. “While we remain focused on continuing to grow our customer base and prudently increase our commercial footprint in the U.S., we welcome opportunities such as ATTP to present our compelling clinical data to European audiences as we continue to explore potential commercial partners to distribute V-Go in the region.”
