This trial is conducted in Asia. This trial aims for evaluating the glycaemic control, measured as glycosylated haemoglobin (Hb1Ac), of once daily insulin detemir as an add-on to oral antidiabetic drug (OAD) in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus in Korea.

Condition Intervention Phase
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
Drug: insulin detemir
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A 20-week, Multi-centre, Open-labelled, Non-comparative Evaluation of the Safety and Efficacy of Insulin Detemir in Combination With Oral Anti-diabetic Drug(s), in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Who Were Inadequately Controlled on Current Therapy in Korea

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) at Week 20 [ Time Frame: week 0, week 20 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) from baseline to week 20

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: week 0, week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) at week 12 from baseline

  • Change in Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) [ Time Frame: week 0, week 12, week 20 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in fasting plasma glucose (FPG) from baseline to week 12 and week 20

  • Percentage of Subjects Achieving Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) Less Than 7.0% [ Time Frame: week 12, week 20 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentage (%) of subjects achieving Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) treatment target levels less than 7.0%

  • Occurence of Hypoglycaemic Episodes [ Time Frame: weeks 0-20 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Occurence of hypoglycaemic episodes - diurnal and nocturnal - over 20 weeks of treatment.
