In a clinical study of patients with type 2 diabetes (Lixilan O), 74% of patients using SOLIQUA 100/33 lowered their A1c below 7%, while 59% of patients on Lantus® (insulin glargine injection) 100 Units/mL and 33% of patients on lixisenatide reached an A1c below 7%. The A1c average was reduced from a starting point of 8.1% to 6.5% in patients taking SOLIQUA 100/33, from 8.1% to 6.8% in patients taking Lantus, and from 8.1% to 7.3% in patients taking lixisenatide at the end of 30 weeks.‡

‡The clinical study (Lixilan O) showed that in patients treated with metformin, SOLIQUA 100/33 improved blood sugar control compared to its individual components, a long-acting insulin (Lantus), and a non-insulin, diabetes medicine (lixisenatide). The study included 1,479 patients with type 2 diabetes who were on metformin alone or a 2nd oral diabetes medication which was subsequently discontinued and whose A1c was not at goal. After 4 weeks of taking metformin alone, during which time the metformin dose was optimized, 1,170 patients who had still not achieved their A1c goal with A1c 7-10%, had a fasting blood sugar ≤250 mg/dL, and were on ≥1500 mg metformin continued in the study. For the next 30 weeks patients continued taking metformin and were also treated with either SOLIQUA 100/33 (469 patients), Lantus (467 patients), or lixisenatide (234 patients). In the patients receiving insulin glargine 100 units/mL in the form of Lantus or SOLIQUA 100/33, the insulin glargine dose was adjusted in accordance with fasting self-monitored blood glucose measures aiming for a target of (80-100 mg/dL) with a dose cap of 60 units in both the Lantus and SOLIQUA 100/33 groups. The study showed that combining lixisenatide with Lantus in SOLIQUA 100/33 can help lower blood sugar even further than its individual components in patients taking metformin.
