Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse events, laboratory variables, physical examination, cardiac evaluation, hypoglycemic events, electrocardiogram, vital signs (blood pressure and pulse), body weight

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacodynamic: fasting plasma glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin A1c, lipid variables (triglyceride, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol)
  • Responder rates and proportion of patients on tesaglitazar who reach pre-specified target levels for triglyceride, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol
  • C-reactive protein
  • Central obesity (waist circumference, hip circumference, waist/hip ratio)
