Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change at Week (Wk) 12 Compared to Baseline (Bl) in Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes When Compared to Placebo [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After 12 Weeks of treatment, to assess the reduction of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in patients with Type 2 diabetes when compared to placebo


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change at Week (Wk) 12 Compared to Baseline (Bl) in High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes When Compared to Placebo [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After 12 weeks of treatment, to assess the increase of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol in patients with Type 2 diabetes when compared to placebo

  • Percent Change at Week (Wk) 12 Compared to Baseline (Bl) in Triglycerides in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes When Compared to Placebo [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    after 12 weeks of treatment, to assess the reduction of triglycerides in patients with Type 2 diabetes when compared to placebo
