This is a 24-week randomized, double-blind, multi-center, placebo-controlled study of tesaglitazar in patients with type 2 diabetes who are not adequately controlled on insulin (along or in combination with one or more oral antidiabetic agents in addition to diet and lifestyle advice). The study comprises a 3-week enrollment period and a 24-week randomized, double blind, multi-center, placebo-controlled treatment period and a 3-week follow-up. Patients must receive at least 30 units of insulin per day and will continue their current oral antidiabetic treatment regimen throughout the study.

Condition Intervention Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Drug: Tesaglitazar 0.5 Drug: Insulin at least 30 units/day Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A 24-Week Randomised, Double-Blind, Multi-Centre, Placebo-Controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of Tesaglitazar Therapy When Added to the Therapy of Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Poorly Controlled on Insulin

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Absolute change from baseline to end of randomized treatment period in glycosylated hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in the following variables from baseline to the end of the randomized treatment period:
  • The change in fasting plasma glucose (FPG), insulin, proinsulin and C-peptide from baseline to the end of the randomized treatment period
  • Insulin sensitivity by assessment of change in the calculated variable homeostasis assessment model from baseline to the end of the randomized treatment period
  • Lipid parameters (triglyceride [TG], total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol [HDL C], non-HDL C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol [LDL C], apolipoproteins [Apo] A-I, Apo B, Apo CIII, free fatty acids, lipoprotein particle size and c
  • C-reactive protein, LDL C/HDL C ratio and Apo B/Apo A-I ratio
  • FPG, homeostasis assessment model, insulin, proinsulin, C-peptide
  • Tumor necrosis factor-alpha, intracellular adhesion molecule-1
  • Fibrinogen
  • Urinary albumin excretion
  • Waist/hip ratio
  • Responder analyses for HbA1c, FPG, TG, HDL C, total cholesterol, non HDL C and LDL C according to pre-specified values
  • Proportion of patients reaching pre-specified target levels for HbA1c, FPG, TG, HDL C, non-HDL C and LDL C
  • Pharmacokinetics of tesaglitazar
  • Safety and tolerability of tesaglitazar by assessment of adverse events, laboratory values, electrocardiogram, pulse, blood pressure, hypoglycemic events, body weight, cardiac evaluation, and physical examination
  • To validate the Work Productivity and Activity Impairment-Diabetes Questionnaire (WPAI-Diabetes) and the Diabetes Productivity Impairment Questionnaire (DPIQ) in patients with type 2 diabetes and to explore the effects of tesaglitazar (0.5 mg) on pati
