|Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 Acute Coronary Syndrome||Drug: Alogliptin Drug: Placebo||Phase 3|
Alogliptin is a selective and potent dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor developed by Takeda for use in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Cardiovascular outcomes is of special interest in the type 2 diabetes mellitus population, particularly in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients who have cardiovascular disease and are at high risk for major adverse cardiac events, such as those patients who have had recent acute coronary syndrome.
This study has been designed to evaluate the cardiovascular safety of alogliptin versus placebo in addition to Standard of Care in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus and acute coronary syndrome.

Alogliptin placebo matching tablets, orally, once daily. Participants continued to receive standard of care for cardiovascular disease and diabetes according to regional guidelines.
Alogliptin placebo matching tablets
Alogliptin 25 mg, tablets, orally, once daily for participants with normal or mildly impaired renal function as defined by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) ≥ 60 mL/min). Alogliptin 12.5 mg, tablets, orally, once daily for participants with moderately impaired renal function (eGFR ≥30 and <60 mL/min). Alogliptin 6.25 mg, tablets, orally, once daily for participants with severely impaired renal function or end stage renal disease (eGFR <30 mL/min). Participants continued to receive standard of care for cardiovascular disease and diabetes according to regional guidelines.
- Percentage of Participants With Primary Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE) [ Time Frame: From randomization until the adjudication cut-off date of May 31 2013 (maximum time on study was 41 months). ]Primary Major Adverse Cardiac Events were defined as a composite of cardiovascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction and nonfatal stroke; these events were adjudicated by an independent cardiovascular endpoints committee.
- Percentage of Participants With Secondary Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE) [ Time Frame: From randomization until the adjudication cut-of date of May 31 2013 (maximum time on study was 41 months). ]Secondary MACE composite consisted of cardiovascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke, or urgent revascularization due to unstable angina; these events were adjudicated by an independent cardiovascular endpoint committee.
