The primary objective was to determine if the effect of Toujeo on blood sugar levels (HbA1c) was similar to insulin degludec. Secondary objectives included the percentage of patients experiencing adverse events, the total number of participants with low blood sugar events during the study and the rate at which low blood sugar events occurred. The study specifically followed 929 adults whose type 2 diabetes was previously uncontrolled on non-insulin medication.

"The most recently introduced long-acting insulins have already demonstrated significant blood glucose lowering benefit to adult patients with diabetes. From the perspective of physicians and patients, hypoglycemia remains a major limiting factor in effective blood sugar management in diabetes. We believe that these first comparative clinical data assessing similarity and difference not only in efficacy, but also in the important safety aspect, such as low blood sugar events, can support physicians in their treatment decisions," said Riccardo Perfetti, Head of Global Diabetes Medical Team, Sanofi. "We look forward to release of the full results of the study."

About the head-to-head study : The BRIGHT study included adults with type 2 diabetes who had failed to control their HbA1c with oral antihyperglycemic drugs (OADs) with or without a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. Additional secondary endpoints included the percentage of participants requiring rescue therapy, safety, and patient-reported outcomes measured using the Diabetes Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire (DTSQ, status version and change version) and the Hypoglycemic Attitudes and Behavior Scale.
