Comparison of NovoFine Needles (4 mm vs. 6 mm)
This trial is conducted in Europe. The aim of this investigation is to explore the safety of a 4 mm needle compared to a 6 mm needle when injected in children and lean adults with diabetes.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Factorial Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
NovoFine® needle 6 mm, NovoFine® needle 4 mm

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Usage of a single needle among two or more people for injecting drugs. Needle sharing is a high-risk behavior for contracting infectious disease.
Removal and examination of tissue obtained through a transdermal needle inserted into the specific region, organ, or tissue being analyzed.
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
Microscopy, Scanning Tunneling
A type of scanning probe microscopy in which a very sharp conducting needle is swept just a few angstroms above the surface of a sample. The tiny tunneling current that flows between the sample and the needle tip is measured, and from this are produced three-dimensional topographs. Due to the poor electron conductivity of most biological samples, thin metal coatings are deposited on the sample.
Diabetes Mellitus, Experimental
Diabetes mellitus induced experimentally by administration of various diabetogenic agents or by PANCREATECTOMY.
This trial is conducted in Europe. This trial aims to ensure that there is no substantial clinically relevant difference between the two Novo Nordisk needles NovoFine® 6 x 0.30 mm and Nov...

This study will examine whether nurses prefer to use the NovoFine® Autocover Needle or the BD Safety Glide (TM) Syringe (only) in a hospital setting. The number of needle stick injuries...
This trial is conducted in Europe. The primary aim of this clinical trial is to locate and compare simulated insulin injections (injections of sterile atmospheric air) in normal weight and...
Abstract Compatibility of two types of needles with a variety of durable and prefilled injection pens for diabetes medication was tested by attaching the needles according to ISO 11608-2 and verifying...
The atraumatic needle is recommended over the cutting needle to prevent complications related to lumbar puncture and to reduce costs to the health care system. However, very few practicing neurologist...
Abstract Accurate placement of the needle tip is essential in percutaneous therapies such as radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of liver tumors. Use of a robotic system for navigating the needle could impr...
The needle length of the Yersinia spp. injectisome is determined by Yop secretion protein P (YscP), an early substrate of the injectisome itself. There is a linear correlation between the length of Ys...
BACKGROUND: Image-guided robots are manipulators that operate based on medical images. Perhaps the most common class of image-guided robots are robots for needle interventions. Typically, these robots...
