  Purpose

This is a 52-week randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, multi-center, active-controlled (glibenclamide) study of tesaglitazar in patients with type 2 diabetes, not adequately controlled on diet and lifestyle advice alone during the run-in period. The study comprises a 6 week placebo single blind run in period followed by a 52-week double blind treatment period and a 3-week follow-up period. Tesaglitazar and glibenclamide will be titrated to optimal effect or highest tolerable dose during the first 12 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Absolute change from baseline to end of randomized treatment period in glycosylated hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in the following variables from baseline to the end of the randomized treatment period:
  • The change in fasting plasma glucose (FPG), insulin, proinsulin and C-peptide
  • Insulin sensitivity by assessment of change in the calculated variable homeostasis assessment model
  • Lipid parameters (triglyceride [TG], total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol [HDL C], non-HDL C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol [LDL C], apolipoproteins [Apo] A-I, Apo B, Apo CIII, free fatty acids, lipoprotein particle size and c
  • C-reactive protein, LDL C/HDL C ratio and Apo B/Apo A-I ratio
  • FPG, homeostasis assessment model, insulin, proinsulin, C-peptide
  • Tumor necrosis factor-alpha, intracellular adhesion molecule-1
  • Fibrinogen
  • Urinary albumin excretion
  • Waist/hip ratio
  • Responder analyses for HbA1c, FPG, TG, HDL C, total cholesterol, non HDL C and LDL C according to pre-specified values
  • Proportion of patients reaching pre-specified target levels for HbA1c, FPG, TG, HDL C, non-HDL C and LDL C
  • Pharmacokinetics of tesaglitazar
  • Safety and tolerability of tesaglitazar by assessment of adverse events, laboratory values, electrocardiogram, pulse, blood pressure, hypoglycemic events, body weight, cardiac evaluation, and physical examination
