Cascade CGM 15-day Performance Assessment (CASPA)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT04099043
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : September 23, 2019
Last Update Posted : April 6, 2020

Brief Summary:
To validate the feasibility of a 15-day wear period of the Cascade CGM system

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Continuous Glucose Monitoring Device: Cascade Continuous Glucose Monitoring System Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
To assess a 15-day wear period for the Cascade CGM. This study includes ten subjects who will interface with the system and take finger stick BGM glucose values for calibration. The wear period includes four in-clinic days frequent blood draws and eleven at home days at a single testing site.

    • Used an investigational drug within 30 days prior to study entry
    • Hematocrit < 32% (obtained during screening)
    • Inadequate veins (in the opinion of the investigator) or known contraindication to placement of a dedicated peripheral line for venous blood withdrawal
    • Symptomatic coronary artery disease with a history of angina, or history of a myocardial infarction or coronary intervention (e.g., percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty [PTCA], stent placement), or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) within the past six months
    • Diagnosis of the following diabetic autonomic neuropathies: orthostatic hypotension, heart rate anomalies, gastroparesis
    • Cerebrovascular incident within the past six month

    • Major surgical operation within 30 days prior to screening
    • Other medical conditions that would pose safety concerns, interfere with study conduct or seriously compromise study integrity (reason for exclusion will be clearly documented by investigator or designee)
