The purpose of this study is to evaluate if type 2 diabetics who have inadequate glycemic control on metformin alone, have a similar, or not inferior, glycemic response when treated with the combination of muraglitazar and metformin compared to pioglitazone and metformin.

Condition Intervention Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Drug: Muraglitazar Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-Blind, Active-Controlled, Multicenter Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of BMS-298585 in Combination With Metformin Compared to Pioglitazone in Combination With Metformin in Type 2 Diabetics With Inadequate Glycemic Control on Metformin Alone
