  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the benefits and risks of lixisenatide (AVE0010), in comparison to placebo, as an add-on treatment to basal insulin with or without sulfonylurea, over a period of 24 weeks of treatment.

The primary objective is to assess the effects of lixisenatide, when added to basal insulin, on glycemic control in terms of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) reduction at Week 24.

The secondary objectives are to assess the effects of lixisenatide on body weight, 2-hour postprandial plasma glucose (PPG) after standardized meal challenge test, percentage of patients reaching HbA1c less than 7 percent (%), percentage of patients reaching HbA1c less than or equal to 6.5%, fasting plasma glucose (FPG), change in 7-point self-monitored plasma glucose (SMPG) profiles, change in daily basal insulin and total insulin doses; to evaluate safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), and anti-lixisenatide antibody development.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Absolute Change From Baseline in Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change was calculated by subtracting baseline value from Week 24 value. The on-treatment period for this efficacy variable is the time from the first dose of study drug up to 3 days after the last dose of study drug or up to the introduction of rescue therapy, whichever is the earliest. For a patient to be included in mITT population, both baseline and at least 1 post baseline assessment for at least 1 efficacy variable, were required.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in 2-hour Postprandial Plasma Glucose (PPG) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The 2-hour PPG test measured blood glucose 2 hours after eating a standardized meal. Change was calculated by subtracting baseline value from Week 24 value. The on-treatment period for this efficacy variable is the time from the first dose of study drug up to the last dosing day of study drug or up to the introduction of rescue therapy, whichever is the earliest. For a patient to be included in mITT population, both baseline and at least 1 post baseline assessment for at least 1 efficacy variable, were required.

  • Change From Baseline in Body Weight at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change was calculated by subtracting baseline value from Week 24 value. The on-treatment period for this efficacy variable is the time from the first dose of study drug up to 3 days after the last dose of study drug or up to the introduction of rescue therapy, whichever is the earliest. For a patient to be included in mITT population, both baseline and at least 1 post baseline assessment for at least 1 efficacy variable, were required.

  • Change From Baseline in Average 7-Point Self Monitored Plasma Glucose (SMPG) Profile at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change From Baseline in Average 7-Point Self Monitored Plasma Glucose (SMPG) Profile at Week 24 Patients recorded a 7-point plasma glucose profile measured before and 2 hours after each meal and at bedtime once in a week and the average value for the 7-time points was calculated. The on-treatment period for this efficacy variable is the time from the first dose of study drug up to the last dosing day of study drug or up to the introduction of rescue therapy, whichever is the earliest. For a patient to be included in mITT population, both baseline and at least 1 post baseline assessment for at least 1 efficacy variable, were required.

  • Change From Baseline in Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change was calculated by subtracting baseline value from Week 24 value. The on-treatment period for this efficacy variable is the time from the first dose of study drug up to 1 day after the last dose of study drug or up to the introduction of rescue therapy, whichever is the earliest. For a patient to be included in mITT population, both baseline and at least 1 post baseline assessment for at least 1 efficacy variable, were required.

  • Change From Screening in Total Insulin Dose at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Screening, Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change was calculated by subtracting screening value from Week 24 value. The on-treatment period for this efficacy variable is the time from the first dose of study drug up to the last dosing day of study drug or up to the introduction of rescue therapy, whichever is the earliest. For a patient to be included in mITT population, both baseline and at least 1 post baseline assessment for at least 1 efficacy variable, were required.

  • Percentage of Patients With Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) Level Less Than 7% at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentage of Patients With Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) Level Less Than 7% at Week 24 The on-treatment period for this efficacy variable is the time from the first dose of study drug up to 3 days after the last dose of study drug or up to the introduction of rescue therapy, whichever is the earliest. For a patient to be included in mITT population, both baseline and at least 1 post baseline assessment for at least 1 efficacy variable, were required.

  • Percentage of Patients With Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) Level Less Than or Equal to 6.5% at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The on-treatment period for this efficacy variable is the time from the first dose of study drug up to 3 days after the last dose of study drug or up to the introduction of rescue therapy, whichever is the earliest. For a patient to be included in mITT population, both baseline and at least 1 post baseline assessment for at least 1 efficacy variable, were required.

  • Percentage of Patients Requiring Rescue Therapy During 24-Week Period [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Routine fasting SMPG and central laboratory FPG (and HbA1c after week 12) values were used to determine the requirement of rescue medication. If fasting SMPG value exceeded the specified limit for 3 consecutive days, the central laboratory FPG (and HbA1c after week 12) were performed. Threshold values - from baseline to Week 8: fasting SMPG/FPG >270 milligram/deciliter (mg/dL) (15.0 mmol/L), from Week 8 to Week 12: fasting SMPG/FPG >240 mg/dL (13.3 mmol/L), and from Week 12 to Week 24: fasting SMPG/FPG >200 mg/dL (11.1 mmol/L) or HbA1c >8.5%. For a patient to be included in mITT population, both baseline and at least 1 post baseline assessment for at least 1 efficacy variable, were required.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Glucose Excursion at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Glucose excursion = 2-hour PPG minus plasma glucose 30 minutes prior to the standardized meal test, before study drug administration. Change was calculated by subtracting baseline value from Week 24 value. The on-treatment period for this efficacy variable is the time from the first dose of study drug up to the last dosing day of the study drug or up to the introduction of rescue therapy, whichever is the earliest. For a patient to be included in mITT population, both baseline and at least 1 post baseline assessment for at least 1 efficacy variable, were required.

  • Number of Patients With Symptomatic Hypoglycemia and Severe Symptomatic Hypoglycemia [ Time Frame: First dose of study drug up to 3 days after the last dose administration ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Symptomatic hypoglycemia was an event with clinical symptoms that were considered to result from a hypoglycemic episode with an accompanying plasma glucose less than 60 mg/dL (3.3 mmol/L) or associated with prompt recovery after oral carbohydrate, intravenous glucose, or glucagon administration if no plasma glucose measurement was available. Severe symptomatic hypoglycemia was symptomatic hypoglycemia event in which the patient required the assistance of another person and was associated with either a plasma glucose less than 36 mg/dL (2.0 mmol/L) or prompt recovery after oral carbohydrate, intravenous glucose, or glucagon administration, if no plasma glucose measurement was available.
