Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Hypoglycaemic Events [ Time Frame: 78 weeks plus 1 week of follow-up ]

    Investigator defined Hypoglycaemic events. For documentation of hypoglycemic events, the following criteria were taken into consideration:

    • Asymptomatic hypoglycemia: the event was not accompanied by typical symptoms of hypoglycemia but with a measured plasma glucose of ≤70 mg/dL (≤3.9 mmol/L)
    • Documented symptomatic hypoglycemia with glucose of ≥54 mg/dL and ≤70 mg/dL (≥3.0 mmol/L and ≤3.9 mmol/L)
    • Documented symptomatic hypoglycemia with glucose of <54 mg/dL (<3.0 mmol/L): the event was accompanied by typical symptoms of hypoglycemia but in no need for external assistance
    • Severe hypoglycemic episode: the event required the assistance of another person to actively administer carbohydrate, glucagon, or other resuscitative actions

  • Change From Baseline to Week 78 in Lipid Parameters [ Time Frame: Weeks 1 and 78 ]
    Change from baseline to week 78 in lipid parameters (Total cholesterol, High-density lipoprotein (HDL), Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and Triglyceride)

  • Clinical Relevant Abnormalities for Physical Examination, Vital Signs, ECG and Laboratory Measurements [ Time Frame: 78 weeks plus 1 week of follow-up ]
    Clinical Relevant Abnormalities for Physical Examination, Vital Signs, ECG and Laboratory Measurements. New abnormal findings or worsening of baseline conditions were reported as treatment related Adverse Events.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in HbA1c Over Time [ Time Frame: Weeks 1, 6, 18, 30, 42, 54, 66 and 78 ]
    Baseline source: before first intake of active treatment (preceding trial or Open label extension)

  • Occurence of a Treat-to-target Response (HbA1c < 7.0%) [ Time Frame: Weeks 1, 6, 18, 30, 42, 54, 66 and 78 ]
    Occurence of a treat-to-target response, defined as HbA1c < 7.0% over time

  • Occurrence of a Treat-to-target Response (HbA1c < 6.5%) [ Time Frame: Weeks 1, 6, 18, 30, 42, 54, 66 and 78 ]
    Occurrence of a Treat-to-target Response, defined as HbA1c < 6.5% over time

  • Occurrence of a Relative Efficacy Response [ Time Frame: Weeks 1, 6, 18, 30, 42, 54, 66 and 78 ]
    Occurrence of a Relative Efficacy Response (HbA1c Lowered by at least >=0.5% over time)

  • Change From Baseline in Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) Over Time [ Time Frame: Weeks 1, 6, 18, 30, 42, 54, 66 and 78 ]
    Baseline source: before first intake of active treatment (preceding trial or Open label extension)
