Study Title:ADJUNCTONETM: The efficacy and safety of liraglutide as adjunct therapy to insulin in the treatment of type 1 diabetes
What is the purpose of the study?The purpose of this study is to see if subjects with type 1 diabetes can improve their blood glucose control by adding an injectable glucose lowering agent (liraglutide) to their current treatment compared to those on inactive treatment (placebo). Liraglutide is a modified version of the body's own natural gut hormone called glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1). Liraglutide is currently available on the market as Victoza and is used to control blood glucose levels in patients with type 2 diabetes.
