The purpose of the study was to compare the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of Humalog or Humulin R insulin when administered as a single 20-U subcutaneous (SC) injection with or without coadministration of rHuPH20.

The study hypothesizes that the time required to reach maximum insulin concentration (Tmax) when insulin is administered with rHuPH20 will be comparable or shorter than the time required without rHuPH20.

Official Title: A Phase I, Randomized, Double-Blind Crossover Pharmacokinetic, Pharmacodynamic and Safety Study of Subcutaneously Administered Humalog® (Insulin Lispro Injection; Fast-Acting Insulin) With and Without Recombinant Human Hyaluronidase (rHuPH20) Versus Subcutaneously Administered Humulin R® (Regular Insulin Injection) With and Without rHuPH20

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare PK of a single SC injection of Humalog or Humulin R insulin with or without rHuPH20, by determining Tmax, Cmax, AUC0→Tmaxw/PH20, AUC0→t', and relative bioavailability of serum insulin concentrations collected at specified time points. [ Time Frame: 3 mL blood draws were taken 10 and 1 minute (min) prior to treatment, every 3 min for the first 60 minutes of each treatment, every 15 min from 60 min to 3 hr and every hr. from 3 to 6 hrs. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare PD of a single SC injection of Humalog or Humulin R insulin with rHuPH20 to a SC injection of Humalog or Humulin without rHuPH20, by comparing Tmax, Tearly 50%, Tlate 50%, and AUC0→t' of glucose infusion rate (GIR). [ Time Frame: 3 mL blood draws were taken 10 and 1 minute (min) prior to treatment, every 3 min for the first 60 minutes of each treatment, every 15 min from 60 min to 3 hr and every hr. from 3 to 6 hrs. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
