Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of Adverse events [ Time Frame: 36 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The frequency of adverse events by type, seriousness, time to onset, etc. Adverse events are defined as any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product reported from first dose of study drug to the last dose of study drug.

  • Change from Baselin in Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) [ Time Frame: Baseline and month 36 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The change in the value of glycosylated hemoglobin (the concentration of glucose bound to hemoglobin as a percent of the absolute maximum that can be bound) collected at month 36 relative to baseline.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baselin in Fasting blood glucose [ Time Frame: Baseline and month 36 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The change in the value of fasting blood glucose collected at month 36 relative to baseline.
