  Purpose

Many people with type 2 diabetes cannot maintain target blood glucose levels when taking a single oral drug. The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of the combination of vildagliptin, an unapproved drug, and pioglitazone in lowering overall blood glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes who have not previously been treated with drug therapy to lower their blood sugar.
