Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability of dutogliptin as assessed by analysis of AEs/SAEs, laboratory data, vital signs, and ECGs [ Time Frame: Day 1 through day 182 (end of the 26-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled period) and through Day 364 (end of the 26-week, sitagliptin-controlled period of the study) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change of HbA1c [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 182 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change of fasting plasma glucose [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 182 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Plasma dutogliptin levels [ Time Frame: Days 1, 198 and 182 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Per cent ex vivo DPP4 inhibition after drug dosing [ Time Frame: Days 1, 98, and 182 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
