  Purpose
This trial was conducted in Europe,Asia and Africa. Study participants were randomised evenly to treatment with semaglutide (0.1 mg QW - 1.6 mg QW, 6 treatment arms, placebo or liraglutide (1.2 mg QD, or 1.8 mg QD).Treatment allocation to semaglutide or placebo was double-blind, whereas liraglutide treatment was administered open-label.Primary efficacy parameter was HbA1c and the treatment duration was 12 weeks.

Condition Intervention Phase
Diabetes Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 Drug: semaglutide Drug: placebo Drug: liraglutide Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Investigation of Safety and Efficacy of Five Doses of Semaglutide Versus Placebo and Open-label Liraglutide, as Add on Therapy, in Subjects Diagnosed With Type 2 Diabetes Currently Treated With Metformin or Controlled With Diet and Exercise A 12 Week Multi-centre, Multi National, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Randomised, Nine Armed Parallel Group, Dose Finding Trial
