Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time From Randomisation to First Occurrence of a Major Adverse Cardiovascular Event (MACE): Cardiovascular Death, Non-fatal Myocardial Infarction, or Non-fatal Stroke [ Time Frame: From randomisation to individual end of trial date (maximum patient year observation: 2.75 years) ]
    Time from randomisation to first occurrence of an event adjudication committee (EAC)-confirmed 3-component major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE): cardiovascular death, non-fatal myocardial infarction, or nonfatal stroke. Events with EAC-confirmed onset date between randomisation and individual end of trial were included in the analyses. The number of subjects experiencing first EAC-confirmed MACEs, date between randomisation to the end of trial, both days included were presented. The trial was event driven and planned to last up to a maximum of 60.5 months. The actual trial duration (time from first subject first visit to last subject last visit) was 35.6 months. The maximum trial duration for a single subject was 33.1 months.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of EAC-confirmed Severe Hypoglycaemic Episodes [ Time Frame: From randomisation to individual end of trial (maximum patient year observation: 2.75 years) ]
    Number of severe hypoglycaemic episodes from week 0 to the last assessment (up to 35.6 months). The episode of severe hypoglycaemia is an episode requiring assistance of another person to actively administer carbohydrate, glucagon, or take other corrective actions. The trial was event driven and planned to last up to a maximum of 60.5 months. The actual trial duration (time from first subject first visit to last subject last visit) was 35.6 months. The maximum trial duration for a single subject was 33.1 months.

  • Occurrence of at Least One EAC Confirmed Severe Hypoglycaemic Episode Within a Subject (Yes/no) [ Time Frame: From randomisation to individual end of trial date (maximum patient year observation: 2.75 years) ]
    Occurrence of at least one EAC-confirmed severe hypoglycaemic episode within a subject from week 0 to the last assessment (up to 35.6 months). The episode of severe hypoglycaemia is an episode requiring assistance of another person to actively administer carbohydrate, glucagon, or take other corrective actions.

  • Change in Glycosylated Haemoglobin (HbA1c) [ Time Frame: Randomisation to 24 months ]
    Mean change in HbA1c from week 0 to month 24.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Insulin degludec (IDeg)
All subjects will continue their current antidiabetic therapy except for the basal insulin component (if any) that will be replaced by the investigational product.
Drug: insulin degludec
Injected once daily subcutaneously (s.c., under the skin)
Active Comparator: Insulin glargine (IGlar)
All subjects will continue their current antidiabetic therapy except for the basal insulin component (if any) that will be replaced by the investigational product.
Drug: insulin glargine
Injected once daily subcutaneously (s.c., under the skin)
