Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Hemoglobin A1C (A1C) at Week 18 [ Time Frame: Baseline and 18 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    A1C is measured as percent. Thus, this change from baseline reflects the Week 18 A1C percent minus the Week 0 A1C percent.

    The study hypothesis comparison was between sitagliptin versus placebo.



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) at Week 18 [ Time Frame: Baseline and 18 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The change from baseline is the Week 18 FPG minus the Week 0 FPG.

  • 2-hour Post-meal Glucose (PMG) at Week 18 [ Time Frame: Baseline and 18 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The change from baseline is the Week 18 PMG minus the Week 0 PMG.
