This is a study with two treatment sequences and two treatment periods that will assess the safety and efficacy of exenatide treatment in patients with type 2 diabetes who have inadequate glycemic control using metformin or sulfonylurea and for whom insulin is the next appropriate step in diabetes treatment.

Condition Intervention Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Drug: exenatide/insulin glargine Drug: insulin glargine/exenatide Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Efficacy of Exenatide Compared With Insulin Glargine in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Using Metformin or Sulfonylurea for Whom Insulin is the Next Appropriate Therapy

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in HbA1c (glycosylated hemoglobin) from the baseline of the first period (16-weeks of exenatide or insulin) to the end of each 16-week period. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 16, Week 32 ]
    Change in HbA1c from Baseline to the end of each 16-week period. There is one 16-week period of exenatide treatment and one 16-week period of insulin glargine.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in patient-reported outcomes from Baseline to the end of each 16-week period [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 16, Week 32 ]
    Change in patient-based outcomes (Hypoglycemic Fear Survey, patient-preference questionnaires [Treatment Evaluation and Treatment Preference questionnaires), Diabetes Symptom Checklist-Revised, Diabetes Treatment Flexibility Scale, Psychological General Well-Being Index, and the EuroQol (EQ-5D) instrument] from Baseline to the end of each 16-week exenatide or insulin glargine period

Enrollment: 138
Study Start Date: September 2004
Study Completion Date: August 2005
Primary Completion Date: August 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
