  Purpose

A single center, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, crossover, phase II study to assess the effect of aleglitazar on cardiac energetics and function in patients with uncomplicated type 2 diabetes mellitus and no history of coronary artery disease who are drug-naïve or treated with stable metformin. Eligible patients will receive either 150 mcg aleglitazar or placebo orally daily for 6 weeks. After a washout period of 6 weeks, patients will cross over to the treatment not yet received.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cardiac energetics: Change in PCr/ATP ratio using phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) [ Time Frame: from baseline to Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
