A simple approach to administer a first injection3

In a study, 99% of patients reported that overall, the Trulicity Pen was easy or very easy to use.

In a study where patients were trained at baseline on proper self-injection technique with the Trulicity Pen, 99% of patients who had never administered an injection were able to successfully use the Trulicity Pen.

Study description

  • Patients with type 2 diabetes who were naïve to self-injection and injecting others (n=214) participated in a phase 3b, multicenter, open-label, single-arm, outpatient study on the safe and effective use of the Trulicity single-dose pen
  • The primary objective was to achieve a final injection success rate (proportion of patients who successfully complete injection) significantly greater than 80%
  • Patients were trained at baseline on proper self-injection technique with the pen
  • Final injection (4th weekly injection) success was observed in 99.1% [95% CI: 96.6% to 99.7%] (n=209) of patients (primary objective met). Success determined by evaluation of patients’ ability to accurately complete each step in the sequence of drug administration
  • After the final self-injection, patients completed a 12-item ease of use module (secondary endpoint). 208 (99%) out of 210 patients reported that overall, single dose pen was “easy” or “very easy” to use
