Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Hoffmann-La Roche
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01691989
First received: September 20, 2012
Last updated: October 6, 2014
Last verified: October 2014
  Purpose

This multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study will assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of aleglitazar compared with placebo when added to a sulfonylurea monotherapy or sulfonylurea plus metformin combination therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who are inadequately controlle d with sulfonylurea alone or sulfonylurea plus metformin therapy. Patients will be randomized to receive oral doses of 150 mcg aleglitazar once daily or placebo The anticipated time on study treatment is 26 weeks.
