Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in HbA1c [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 18 ]
    To test whether MYL-1501D product from Process VI once daily is non-inferior to MYL-1501D product from Process V once daily based on change in HbA1c when administered in combination with mealtime insulin lispro.

  10. Female subjects of childbearing potential who are willing to use oral contraception or two acceptable methods of contraception, (e.g., intra-uterine device plus condom, spermicidal gel plus condom, diaphragm plus condom, etc.), from the time of screening and for the duration of the study, through study completion.

    1. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception.

    5. If female subjects have male partners who have undergone vasectomy, the vasectomy must have occurred more than 6 months prior to screening

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. History or presence of a medical condition or disease that in the investigator's opinion would place the subject at an unacceptable risk from study participation.
  2. History of hypersensitivity to any of the active or inactive ingredients of the insulin/insulin analogue preparations used in the study, OR history of significant allergic drug reactions.
  3. History of use of animal insulin within the last 3 years or use of approved biosimilar insulin glargine at any time prior to study entry, except for subject who previously participated in MYL-1501D studies and were compliant with the study protocols.
  4. History of use of a regular immunomodulator therapy in the 1 year prior to screening.
  5. History of autoimmune disorders other than T1DM or insufficiently treated autoimmune thyroid disorders judged clinically relevant by the investigator (recorded while collecting subject history).
  6. History of ≥1 episodes of diabetic ketoacidosis or emergency room visits for uncontrolled diabetes leading to hospitalization within the 6 months prior to screening.
  7. History of clinically significant acute bacterial, viral or fungal systemic infections in the last 4 weeks prior to screening (recorded while collecting subject history).
  8. Any clinically significant abnormality in electrocardiogram (ECG) or safety laboratory tests (LFT, RFT, hematology or any other laboratory deemed clinically relevant by the investigator) conducted at screening and considered by the investigator to make the subject ineligible for the study.
  9. Serological evidence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B surface antigen (HbSAg) or hepatitis C antibodies (HCVAb) at screening.
