  Purpose

This multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study will assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of aleglitazar monotherapy compared with placebo in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who have not previously receiv ed anti-hyperglycemic therapy. Patients will be randomized to receive oral doses of 150 mcg aleglitazar once daily or placebo. The anticipated time on study tre atment is 26 weeks.
