Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Glycosylated Haemoglobin (HbA1c) From Baseline to Week 16 [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 16 ]
    Estimated mean change from baseline in HbA1c after 16 Weeks of treatment.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Glycosylated Haemoglobin (HbA1c) From Baseline to Week 36 [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 36 ]
    Estimated mean change from baseline in HbA1c after 36 Weeks of treatment

  • Change in Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) From Baseline to Week 16 [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 16 ]
    Estimated mean change from baseline in FPG after 16 Weeks of treatment.

  • Change in Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) From Baseline to Week 36 [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 36 ]
    Estimated mean change from baseline in FPG after 36 Weeks of treatment.

  • Change in Mean Plasma Glucose (PG) of 7-Point Profile From Baseline to Week 16 [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 16 ]
    Estimated mean change from baseline in mean PG of 7-point profile (7-points were before breakfast, 120 minutes after start of breakfast, before lunch, 120 minutes after start of lunch, before dinner, 120 minutes after start of dinner and at bedtime) after 16 Weeks of treatment.

  • Change in Mean Plasma Glucose (PG) of 7-Point Profile From Baseline to Week 36 [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 36 ]
    Estimated mean change from baseline in mean PG of 7-point profile (7-points were before breakfast, 120 minutes after start of breakfast, before lunch, 120 minutes after start of lunch, before dinner, 120 minutes after start of dinner and at bedtime) after 36 Weeks of treatment.

  • Change in Mean Prandial PG Increment of 7-Point Profile From Baseline to Week 16 [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 16 ]
    Estimated mean change from baseline in mean prandial PG increment of 7-point profile (7-points were before breakfast, 120 minutes after start of breakfast, before lunch, 120 minutes after start of lunch, before dinner, 120 minutes after start of dinner and at bedtime) after 16 Weeks of treatment.

  • Change in Mean Prandial PG Increment of 7-Point Profile From Baseline to Week 36 [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 36 ]
    Estimated mean change from baseline in mean prandial PG increment of 7-point profile (7-points were before breakfast, 120 minutes after start of breakfast, before lunch, 120 minutes after start of lunch, before dinner, 120 minutes after start of dinner and at bedtime) after 36 Weeks of treatment.

  • Change in Body Weight From Baseline to Week 16 [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 16 ]
    Estimated mean change in body weight after 16 Weeks of treatment

  • Change in Body Weight From Baseline to Week 36 [ Time Frame: Week 0, Week 36 ]
    Estimated mean change in body weight after 36 Weeks of treatment

  • Number of Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Week 0 to Week 36 (inclusive) ]
    An AE was defined as treatment emergent if the onset date was on or after the first day of exposure to randomised treatment and no later than 7 days after the last day of randomised treatment.

  • Number of Confirmed Hypoglycaemic Episodes [ Time Frame: Week 0 to week 36 (inclusive) ]

    A hypoglycaemic episode was defined as treatment emergent if the onset of the episode was on or after the first day of exposure to randomised treatment and until the last day on randomised treatment. Confirmed hypoglycaemic episode was defined as hypoglycaemic episodes categorised to severe and/or minor hypoglycaemic episodes.

    Confirmed hypoglycaemia: subject unable to treat himself/herself and/or have a recorded PG < 3.1 mmol/L (56 mg/dL). Minor: PG < 3.1 mmol/L (56 mg/dL).

Study Start Date: April 2012
Study Completion Date: March 2013
Primary Completion Date: November 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Lira+Insulin Drug: liraglutide
Liraglutide administered subcutaneously (s.c., under the skin) for 36 weeks combined with insulin therapy.
Drug: insulin
All subjects will continue their pre-trial insulin therapy (basal, premixed or basal-bolus regimen) during the trial. Insulin dose is fixed for the first 16 weeks and for the subsequent 20 weeks, insulin dose is individually adjusted.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo+Insulin Drug: placebo
Liraglutide placebo administered subcutaneously (s.c., under the skin) for 36 weeks combined with insulin therapy.
Drug: insulin
All subjects will continue their pre-trial insulin therapy (basal, premixed or basal-bolus regimen) during the trial. Insulin dose is fixed for the first 16 weeks and for the subsequent 20 weeks, insulin dose is individually adjusted.
