Clinical Trial Summary

Researchers are looking for a better way to help Chinese people who have diabetes to monitor their blood sugar situation. There are 2 types of diabetes. In people with type 1 diabetes, the body's immune system attacks and destroys cells in the pancreas that produce a hormone called insulin. In people with type 2 diabetes, the body does not make enough insulin or does not use insulin well. This results in high blood sugar (glucose) levels. Over time, high blood sugar levels can cause damage to certain parts of the body. These include the eyes, the kidneys, the nerves, and the heart. There are tests and devices available for doctors and patients to measure blood sugar levels. In order to see if the diabetes treatment is workable to stabilize the blood sugar level, repeated blood sugar measurement is always needed. Such tracking of the blood sugar is also called blood sugar monitoring. Blood sugar monitoring tests and devices can however be difficult to use and one test or device may not work for all patients. Researchers think that better monitoring systems would help patients improve the control of their blood sugar levels. This could help to stabilize their blood sugar condition. In this study, the researchers want to learn more about how well a new monitoring system called Cascade works in Chinese patients with diabetes. Cascade is a continuous glucose monitoring system. It regularly measures the level of glucose in the tissue throughout the day and night. Cascade is made up of a small sensor that patients apply in the belly region where it is placed just under the skin, into the so-called subcutaneous tissue. The sensor measures the level of glucose in the fluid that surrounds cells in the subcutaneous tissue. It also has a transmitter which attaches to the sensor and sends the results via Bluetooth to a smart device, which can instantly display the glucose level. The glucose level can then be used to adjust the treatment. The main purpose of this study is to learn how well Cascade monitors glucose levels in Chinese patients when used in usual practice. To answer this question, the researchers will compare the glucose levels collected with the Cascade monitor to the blood sugar levels collected with venous blood glucose testing. This is where a blood sample is taken from the veins, and then the level of sugar in the blood sample is measured. The study will include adult Chinese patients who have type 1 or type 2 diabetes and who the study doctors think need to monitor their diabetes using Cascade and venous blood glucose testing. There will be no study treatments given as part of this study. The patients will be in the study for up to 18 days. The device will be worn up to a maximum of 14 days. The total duration of the study will be about 4 months. The patients will get training on how to use the Cascade monitor and will attach it to their belly area on Day 1 of the study. The patients will wear Cascade for up to 14 days. The researchers will then collect the information about their glucose levels. The study doctors will also take blood samples and measure blood sugar levels using venous blood glucose testing. They will compare the sugar levels recorded from the blood samples to the glucose levels recorded by Cascade at the closest time points. After wearing Cascade for 14 days, the study doctors will remove it from the patients' bellies. About 3 days later, the researchers will call the patients to check for any discomfort that has happened after the removal of the Cascade device. The patients may also take photos of the area and send these to the study doctors. During the study, the study staff will: - take blood samples as part of the usual care - compare glucose levels recorded by Cascade to the levels recorded from the venous blood glucose tests - check the skin for any swelling or areas of rash where Cascade was worn • record any instances of Cascade errors or malfunctioning - record any alarms for when glucose levels are too high or too low - check the patients' overall health - ask the patients about how they are feeling and what medical problems they are having.
