Calibra Medical, Inc. Announces New Data Show On-Demand, Mealtime Insulin Delivery System Enabled More Than 50% of Patients to Report Improved Dose Compliance

Calibra Medical, Inc. announced that people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes who used the new OneTouch Via mealtime, on-demand insulin delivery system reported they missed fewer doses and felt less stress about dosing compared to multiple daily injections. Results of the Market Acceptance Evaluation (MAE) study also demonstrated that physicians were more likely to recommend the innovative insulin delivery device to patients who are not at A1C goals or who are new to rapid-acting insulin (RAI) therapy. The new OneTouch Via is a wearable, on-demand insulin delivery system in development that allows patients to discreetly deliver rapid-acting, or bolus, insulin at mealtimes by simply pressing two buttons on the device, accessible even through clothing. The thin, water-resistant patch can be worn continuously for up to three days, providing injection-free delivery of insulin when needed. The MAE study followed 44 patients with a median age of 57 years, who used the OneTouch Via patch for 60 days, instead of their bolus injection device (75% pen users and 25% syringe and vial users). Patients responded to insulin usage questionnaires at baseline, then after 1, 4 and 8 weeks. By weeks 4 to 8, more than half (58% and 52%, respectively) of study participants acknowledged dosing more often than they would with a pen or syringe with satisfaction rates increasing the longer they used OneTouch Via. Furthermore, 98% of patients said the patch let them dose discreetly in public, with 88% noting they worried less about forgetting insulin creating a less stressful disease management experience. The healthcare professionals who assisted with the study noted that they preferred the OneTouch Via over both insulin pens and syringes (75% and 100%, respectively) and would be likely to recommend it to their patients. The doctors also reported that they would start patients on mealtime insulin earlier because of the ease of use of the OneTouch Via patch. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the insulin delivery patch on April 10, 2012, for use by adults over 21 years of age with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. An additional Clinical Outcomes Study, being conducted across 60 trial sites in the U.S. and Europe, will measure the change in A1C levels, glycemic variability and patient reported quality of life seen in patients using OneTouch Via compared to insulin pens over the course of 24 and 44 weeks.
