Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether a zinc-free insulin is an effective treatment option for lipoatrophy in patients with type 1 Diabetes (T1D) and insulin pump (CSII, continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion) therapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Type 1 Diabetes Lipoatrophy Drug: Apidra Drug: current insulin Phase 4

Detailed Description:
Randomized, controlled, open-label parallel study. Clinical Study Phase IV After being included in the study, subjects are getting an extensive dermatological examination by a pediatric dermatologist familiar with cutaneous complications of T1D, additionally pathological results will be documented by photography and, if necessary, videodermoscopy. Additionally, an evaluation of their lipoatrophic areas using imaging methods like ultrasound (USG) and MRI will be performed. After randomization, half of the included children switch their pump insulin into insulin glulisine (intervention group) for 6 months. The others continue their current treatment (control group) and switch to insulin glulisine 6 months later. Both groups are followed-up until month 12. Hence, after the 4th visit at 6 months, all enrolled patients are on insulin glulisine pumps for a further period of 6 months.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Group 1
Daily use of insulin Apidra in insulin pump. The dosis will be according to the patient's former dosing scheme.
Drug: Apidra
Half of patients with lipoatrophy will be switched randomly to insulin Apidra for 12 months. Any site other than the lipoatrophic site would be used for delivering the insulin for the purpose of this study.
Other Name: Glulisine

Active Comparator: Group 2
Daily use of current insulin in insulin pump.The dosis will be according to the patient's former dosing scheme.
Drug: current insulin
Half of patients with lipoatrophy will still use their current Insulin for 6 months. After 6 months the current insulin will be switched to insulin Apidra for the next 6 months.
Other Name: short-acting analog insulin




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Relative thickness as assessed by MRI [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]
    The relative thickness will be used instead of raw data of the MRI measurements as given by the thickness of the most atrophic region related to the thickness of the reference region of the same patient (normal tissue). The change (increase) of the thickness is defined as difference between the relative thicknesses of the same atrophic region (given as percentage of the same reference region) at 6 months and study begin.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Relative thickness as assessed by MRI [ Time Frame: at 6 and 12 months ]
    Change of relative thickness (as defined above) at 6 and 12 months in the control group

  2. Relative thickness as assessed by MRI [ Time Frame: at baseline and 12 months ]
    Change of relative thickness (as defined above) between baseline and 12 months in both arms

  3. Relative thickness as assessed by USG [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]
    The relative thickness will be used as given by the thickness of the most atrophic region related to the thickness of the reference region of the same patient (normal tissue). The change (increase) of the thickness is defined as difference between the relative thicknesses of the same atrophic region (given as percentage of the same reference region) at 6 months between both groups

  4. Relative thickness as assessed by USG [ Time Frame: at 6 and 12 months ]
    The relative thickness will be used as given by the thickness of the most atrophic region related to the thickness of the reference region of the same patient (normal tissue). The change (increase) of the thickness is defined as difference between the relative thicknesses of the same atrophic region (given as percentage of the same reference region) at 6 months and 12 months in the control group

  5. Relative thickness as assessed by USG [ Time Frame: at baseline and 12 months ]
    The relative thickness will be used as given by the thickness of the most atrophic region related to the thickness of the reference region of the same patient (normal tissue). The change (increase) of the thickness is defined as difference between the relative thicknesses of the same atrophic region (given as percentage of the same reference region) between baseline and 12 months in both groups

  6. indicator dermatoses of Diabetes mellitus and associated autoimmune disorders of the skin [ Time Frame: at 6 and 12 months ]
    Comparison of dermatological findings between 6 and 12 months in the control Group. Dermatological outcome measures will consist in the detection and documentation of a) indicator dermatoses of diabetes mellitus (e. g. lipoatrophy, necrobiosis lipoidica, granuloma anulare), b) associated autoimmune disorders of the skin (e. g. vitiligo, lichen sclerosus, lichen ruber) and c) other, concurrent skin disorders such as atopic dermatitis, acne or psoriasis, for example. If available, disease scores such as the SCORAD score for atopic dermatitis or the PASI score for psoriasis vulgaris will be used to document disease activity.

  7. Number of new lipoatrophic areas [ Time Frame: at 6 and 12 months ]
    Occurrence of new lipoatrophic areas in both arms at 6 and 12 months

  8. Glycemic control [ Time Frame: at 6 and 12 months ]
    Change of HbA1c at 6 and 12 months compared to baseline in both groups

  9. Insulin requirements [ Time Frame: at 6 and 12 months ]
    Change of total daily insulin units per kg body weight at 6 and 12 months compared to baseline in both groups

  10. Laboratory findings [ Time Frame: at baseline, 6 months and 12 months ]
    Comparison of laboratory parameters (insulin antibodies, total IgE, specific insulin-IgE) between baseline, 6 months and 12 months

  11. Side effects [ Time Frame: within 12 months ]

    Side-effects of treatment with other insulins and insulin glulisine such as

    • severe hypoglycemia
    • DKA
    • Catheter occlusion
    • SAEs
