Study type
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Experimental combined insulin cannula and glucose sensor delivering basal and bolus insulin via insulin pump. A wearable device inserted subcutaneously (similar to current commercially available insulin lines and cannulas) which will be tested with the commercially available T:slim insulin pump.

This will involve a one week run in period where participants familiarise themselves with the T:slim pump in conjunction with current commercially available insulin lines and cannulas. This will be followed by seven days of wearing the experimental device with the T:slim pump. The experimental device will be inserted by a study nurse or doctor. Experimental device CGM data will be collected throughout the seven days. Mixed meal tests will be conducted on day 1 and day 7 of experimental device wear. These will involve the participants attending the study centre. They will be cannulated for frequent blood sampling. The mixed meal containing a large 100-120g carbohydrate component will be eaten and appropriate insulin bolus determined by the T:Slim bolus calculator administered. Settings in the T:Slim pump will be the same as their usual settings. Frequent blood sampling will assess BGL 15 minutely as well as samples taken for insulin assays for a period of 6hrs. Experimental device CGM accuracy will be compared with reference YSI BGL levels as well as commercially available Dexcom G5 CGM readings.

Primary outcome [1] 321260 0
Experimental device CGM sensor accuracy as determined by mean absolute difference (MAD) between experimental device sensor readings and reference YSI venous whole blood glucose values <75mg/dL and mean absolute relative difference (MARD) for reference YSI venous whole blood glucose values >75mg/dL during mixed meal testing with frequent venous blood sampling.
Timepoint [1] 321260 0
1 day and 7 days post post commencement of intervention during mixed meal testing with blood collected every 15 minutes for 6hrs.
Secondary outcome [1] 374475 0

Timepoint [1] 374475 0
Throughout 7 day period post intervention commencement. Participants will be asked to assess SMBG BGL levels at least 4 times per day.
Secondary outcome [2] 374476 0
Mean scores on scales assessing subjective participant perceptions and discomfort. Assessed by Tolerability Questionnaire completed by participants.
Timepoint [2] 374476 0
Day 1 and day 7 post intervention commencement.
Secondary outcome [3] 374784 0
Objective changes reflecting skin reactions at site of experimental device insertion. Assessed by Draize Scale completed by research staff.
Timepoint [3] 374784 0
Day 1 and 7 post intervention commencement.

Brief summary
This study will evaluate the accuracy of an experimental CGM measuring glucose continuously in the immediate vicinity of subcutaneous insulin delivery in people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) on insulin pump therapy. Glucose sensor accuracy will be evaluated over a 7 day period as well as infusion site patency and tolerability of the experimental device. Participants will be changed to a study pump for the duration of the study. In addition to utilizing the study device in a free living state, all participants will also undergo two high carbohydrate mixed meal challenges to assess the performance and accuracy of the study device.
