This is a 24-week study to determine the lipid metabolic effects, safety, and tolerability of tesaglitazar compared with metformin and metformin in combination with fenofibrate in patients with type 2 diabetes and low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). Improvement in dyslipidemia will be evaluated. The study comprises a 2-week enrollment period, 6-week run-in and a 24-week randomized, double blind, parallel group, multi-center, active controlled (metformin with or without fenofibrate) treatment period and a 3-week follow-up. From visit 2 (run-in), all patients will receive a standardized dose of statin (rosuvastatin)

Official Title: A 24-Week Randomised, Double-Blind, Parallel-Group, Multi-Centre, Active-Controlled (Metformin or Metformin Combined With Fenofibrate) Study to Evaluate the Lipid Metabolic Effects, Safety and Tolerability of Tesaglitazar Therapy in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes and Low HDL-Cholesterol on a Fixed Background Therapy With a Statin

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The change in HDL-C from baseline to the end of the randomized treatment period.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in the following variables from baseline to the end of the randomized treatment period:
  • Lipid and lipoprotein variables (triglycerides [TG], non-HDL-C, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol [LDL-C], lipoprotein particle size and concentration, free fatty acid, apolipoprotein [Apo] AI, Apo B, Apo CIII)
  • Responder analyses for HDL-C, TG, and non-HDL-C according to pre-specified values
  • The proportion of patients reaching pre-specified target levels for HDL-C, TG, and non-HDL-C
  • Risk markers for cardiovascular disease (C-reactive protein, insulin, homeostasis model assessment, LDL-C/HDL-C ratio, very-low-density lipoprotein cholesterol/LDL-C ratio, Apo B/Apo AI ratio)
  • Central obesity (waist/hip ratio)
  • 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

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Provision of a written informed consent
  • Men or women who are >=18 years of age
  • Female patients: postmenopausal, hysterectomized, or if of childbearing potential, using a reliable method of birth control
  • Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Type 1 diabetes
  • New York Heart Association heart failure Class III or IV
  • Treatment with chronic insulin
  • History of hypersensitivity or intolerance to any peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor agonist (like Actos or Avandia), fenofibrate, metformin or 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitor (statin)

  • Creatinine levels above the normal range
  • Received any investigational product in other clinical studies within 12 weeks
  • Any clinically significant abnormality identified on physical examination, laboratory tests or electrocardiogram, which in the judgment of the investigator would compromise the patient's safety or successful participation in the clinical study
