Abstract AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: This 52-week multinational, randomised, open-label, parallel-group, non-inferiority trial compared clinical outcomes following supplementation of oral glucose-lowering drugs with basal insulin analogues detemir and glargine in type 2 diabetic patients. METHODS: Insulin-naive adults (n=582, HbA(1c) 7.5-10.0\%, BMI 7.0 mmol/l after achieving FPG <7.0 mmol/l. Due to labelling restrictions, no second glargine dose was allowed. RESULTS: Baseline HbA(1c) decreased from 8.6 to 7.2 and 7.1\% (NS) with detemir and glargine, respectively. FPG improved from 10.8 to 7.1 and 7.0 mmol/l (NS), respectively. With detemir, 45\% of participants completed the study on once daily dosing and 55\% on twice daily dosing, with no difference in HbA(1c). Overall, 52\% of participants achieved HbA(1c) This article was published in Diabetologia and referenced in Journal of AIDS & Clinical Research
