Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability in patients with T2DM and severe renal insufficiency over 24 weeks of treatment [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Relationship between renal function and concentration levels of vildagliptin and its metabolites after repeated doses of vildagliptin in patients with T2DM and severe renal insufficiency. [ Time Frame: 24 weekd ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Efficacy of vildagliptin versus sitagliptin in patients with T2DM and severe renal insufficiency by assessing the hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c ) and fasting plasma glucose (FPG) reduction from baseline [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
