DUBLIN, Sept. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT), a global leader in healthcare technology, today announced results from the Medtronic ADAPT study were published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology. The ADAPT study is the first multi-national randomized controlled study evaluating the performance of MiniMed™ 780G system1 versus standard of care (multiple daily injections (MDI) + continuous glucose monitoring (CGM)) in individuals with type 1 diabetes not currently meeting glycemic targets. The study evaluated 82 individuals who were using MDI and an intermittently scanned continuous glucose monitor (isCGM) to manage their diabetes prior to trial initiation. On average, individuals enrolled were scanning their isCGM frequently (~9 scans/day) yet had suboptimal HbA1C above 8% at baseline.

At study initiation, half of the participants were randomized to stay on standard of care, and the rest transitioned directly to the MiniMed 780G system. Study results showed improvement in glycemic targets for those that transitioned to the MiniMed 780G system with a significant and sustained 1.4% HbA1C reduction at six months. Those using the Medtronic system also saw a 27.6% absolute increase in Time in Range (6.6 more hours/day in target range) compared to those on standard of care without increased in time in hypoglycemia. This improvement was even greater overnight when the algorithm was in full control.

"The ADAPT study illustrates that insulin pump therapy with advanced algorithms, like that of the MiniMed 780G system, can produce significantly improved clinical results versus the current standard of care," said Ohad Cohen, M.D., senior global medical affairs director, Medtronic Diabetes. "Studies like this can change how health care systems define standard of care and expand options for people living with diabetes to begin using insulin pumps sooner to improve their glycemic control and help reduce the burden of diabetes."

When comparing A1C results at 6 months, 27.8% of individuals using the MiniMed 780G system in the study achieved an HbA1c below 7%, while no individuals that remained on MDI +isCGM achieved that desired result.

In terms of customer experience, participants using the MiniMed 780G system spent 95.8% of the time in SmartGuard™ (advanced hybrid closed-loop) and experienced few system exits (only 0.9 SmartGuard exits/week. Additionally, the sensor was being used 92.2% of the time (vs. 87.3% in the standard of care group). The ADAPT study also showed that those that transitioned to the MiniMed 780G system experienced a significant increase in treatment satisfaction2 and reduction in fear of hypoglycemia3.

Overall, results showed that the use of the MiniMed 780G system, even when paired with the Guardian™ sensor 3 which requires two fingerstick calibrations per day, had significant improvement across all glycemic metrics compared to standard of care and supports the use at early stages in the treatment pathway given the potential benefits of complication avoidance4, treatment satisfaction improvements, and reduced fear of hypoglycemia.

The MiniMed 780G system is now available in over 60 countries around the world and is currently being reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for approval in the U.S.

About the MiniMed 780G system
The MiniMed 780G system is the most advanced insulin pump system from Medtronic, currently approved for the treatment of type 1 diabetes in people aged 7 to 80 years. The MiniMed 780G system's SmartGuard algorithm (also referred to as the advanced hybrid closed-loop algorithm) automates the delivery of insulin every five minutes — personalizing these doses to auto-correct highs every five minutes based on CGM readings5,6. The system is designed to be used at a target glucose of 100 mg/dl (5.5 mmol/L) that can be adjusted and personalized on an individual basis.
