  Purpose

This study will compare the benefits of exenatide once weekly treatment to those achieved by the approved antidiabetic therapies sitagliptin and pioglitazone in subjects whose type 2 diabetes is managed with metformin therapy alone. The safety and tolerability of the three treatment regimens will also be compared.

Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Parallel-Group, Multicenter Study to Compare the Glycemic Effects, Safety, and Tolerability of Exenatide Long-Acting Release(Once Weekly) to Those of Sitagliptin and a Thiazolidinedione in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Treated With Metformin

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in HbA1c From Baseline to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Day 1, Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Absolute change in HbA1c from baseline (Day 1) to Week 26 [Week 26 - Baseline].


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Subjects Achieving HbA1c Target of <7% at Week 26 [ Time Frame: Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentages of subjects achieving HbA1c target values of <7% at Week 26.

  • Percentage of Subjects Achieving HbA1c Target of <=6.5% at Week 26 [ Time Frame: Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentages of subjects achieving HbA1c target values of <=6.5% at Week 26.

  • Percentage of Subjects Achieving HbA1c Target of <=6.0% at Week 26 [ Time Frame: Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentages of subjects achieving HbA1c target values of <=6.0% at Week 26.

  • Change in Body Weight From Baseline to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Day 1, Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in body weight from baseline (Day 1) to Week 26.

  • Change in Fasting Plasma Glucose From Baseline to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Day 1, Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in fasting plasma glucose from baseline (Day 1) to Week 26.

  • Change in Systolic Blood Pressure From Baseline to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Day 1, Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in systolic blood pressure from baseline (Day 1) to Week 26.

  • Change in Diastolic Blood Pressure From Baseline to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Day 1, Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in diastolic blood pressure from baseline (Day 1) to Week 26.

  • Change in Fasting Total Cholesterol From Baseline to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Day 1, Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in fasting total cholesterol from baseline (Day 1) to Week 26.

  • Change in Fasting High-density Lipoprotein (HDL) From Baseline to Week 26 [ Time Frame: Day 1, Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in fasting HDL from baseline (Day 1) to Week 26.

  • Ratio of Fasting Triglycerides at Week 26 to Baseline [ Time Frame: Day 1, Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Ratio of triglycerides (measured in mg/dL) at Week 26 to baseline (Day 1). Log (Postbaseline Triglycerides) - log (Baseline Triglycerides); change from baseline to endpoint is presented as ratio of endpoint to baseline.

  • Assessment on Event Rate of Treatment-emergent Hypoglycemic Events [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Major hypoglycemia: events that, in the judgment of the investigator or physician, resulted in loss of consciousness, seizure, coma, or other change in mental status consistent with neuroglycopenia, in which symptoms resolved after administration of intramuscular glucagon or intravenous glucose, required third-party assistance, and was accompanied by a blood glucose concentration < 54 mg/dL prior to treatment. Minor hypoglycemia: symptoms consistent with hypoglycemia and blood glucose concentration < 54 mg/dL prior to treatment and not classified as major hypoglycemia.
