Further study details as provided by Sanofi:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Glycolysated Haemoglobin (HbA1c) [ Time Frame: From baseline to Month 4 ]
  • Patients With Glycosylated Haemoglobin (HbA1c) Value < 7% [ Time Frame: Month 4 ]
  • Evolution of Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) [ Time Frame: From baseline to Months 4 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Post Prandial Plasma Glucose (PPPG) [ Time Frame: Month 4 ]
  • Number of patients for each start dose [ Time Frame: At baseline ]
  • Number of patients with different final doses [ Time Frame: Month 4 ]
  • Rate of Symptomatic Hypoglycemia [ Time Frame: During treatment period (4 months) ]
  • Change in Weight [ Time Frame: Month 4 ]
