Population Description
Explanation of how the number of participants for analysis was determined. Includes whether analysis was per protocol, intention to treat, or another method. Also provides relevant details such as imputation technique, as appropriate.
ITT Population: all patients who were randomized and received study drug. All observed data from all scheduled visits (including early termination visits) were included in the mixed-model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis. Data collected at the early termination visits were mapped into the following scheduled visits.

Statistical Analysis 1 for Change in HbA1c From Baseline to Week 26
Groups [1] All groups
Non-Inferiority/Equivalence Test [2] Yes
Method [3] Mixed Models Analysis
P Value [4] 0.002
Least Squares Mean Difference [5] 0.21
Standard Error of the mean ± 0.07
95% Confidence Interval ( 0.08 to 0.33 )
[1] Additional details about the analysis, such as null hypothesis and power calculation:
  A sample of 408 subjects in each treatment arm would provide approximately 90% power to detect a true difference between treatments of 0.25% in change in HbA1c from baseline with a 2 sided t-test at a significance level of 0.05, assuming a common standard deviation of 1.1%. MMRM model includes treatment, baseline HbA1c, HbA1c stratum, country, background OAD, week of visit, and treatment-by-week interaction as fixed effects and subject and error as random effects.
[2] Details of power calculation, definition of non-inferiority margin, and other key parameters:
  Superiority of exenatide once weekly with respect to change in HbA1c was concluded if the upper limit of the 2-sided 95% confidence interval (CI) for the treatment difference (exenatide once weekly minus liraglutide) was less than zero. Non-inferiority was concluded if the upper limit of the CI was <0.25%.
