Randomised controlled trial of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion compared to multiple daily injection regimens in children and young people at diagnosis of type I diabetes mellitus (SCIPI).

Funder: HTA


Project Summary: This study is designed to provide an evidence base to inform future NHS investment in health care services for children and young people with TIDM. The role of intensive insulin therapy in optimizing glycaemic control and thereby reducing the risk of vascular complications of TIDM is unquestioned, however the optimal way in which to achieve this and the cost effectiveness of the tools currently available is unknown. This study will compare two methods of insulin delivery during childhood and adolescence to identify which facilitates superior glycaemic control, and examine the impact of treatment modalities on other predictors of vascular complications of TIDM, adverse events and quality of life (QoL).
