CV evaluation for 6.2 years from the long-term landmark ORIGIN trial1,2


  • No statistically significant differences between Lantus® and standard care in the co-primary endpoints (P=0.63 for first coprimary outcome, P=0.27 for second primary outcome)1
  • Similar results were observed between Lantus® and standard care for all-cause mortality1


  • Severe symptomatic: hypoglycemia was defined as an event with symptoms conslstent with hypoglycemia requiring the assistance of another person and associated with either a BG ≤36 mg/dL or prompt recovery after oral carbohydrate, intravenous glucose, or glucagon administration.2

ORIGIN, Outcome Reduction with Initial Glargine Intervention.

Study Design

A randomized study of patients with IFG and/or IGT or early T2DM and established CV disease or CV risk at baseline. Patients received either Lantus® (n=6264) titrated to a target FPG of ≤95 mg/dL or standard care (n=6273). Standard care patients remained on their original treatment, if applicable, at randomization. Additional agents could be added as needed at the discretion of the investigator. The coprimary outcomes were nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke, or death from cardiovascular causes and these events plus revascularization or hospitalization for heart failure. Microvascular outcomes, incident diabetes, hypoglycemia, weight, and cancers were also compared between groups. Median follow-up: 6.2 years.1,2
