  Purpose
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of vildagliptin 50 mg bid in elderly patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM).

Condition Intervention Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Drug: Vildagliptin
Drug: Placebo
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multi-center, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of 24 Weeks Treatment With Vildagliptin in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients ≥ 70 Years (Drug-naive or Inadequately Controlled on Oral Agents)

Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the proportion of vildagliptin treated patients achieving HbA1c reduction and/or proportion reaching investigator defined target HbA1c relative to placebo [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of vildagliptin in elderly patients with T2DM who are drug-naive or inadequately controlled with oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs) including physical exam, vital sign, hematology, chemistry and electrocardiogram. [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
  • To evaluate the proportion of vildagliptin treated patients achieving fasting plasma glucose (FPG) reduction relative to placebo [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
  • To assess the responder rates of patients treated with vildagliptin as compared to placebo [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]

Enrollment: 431
