Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
The 1st patient was enrolled on 31 Mar 2008. The last patient last visit was on 15 Dec 2009. 1901 patients (pts) were screened and 1217 pts were enrolled with the aim to randomize 816. 2 randomized pts were excluded since they received no medication. Eventually, 814 pts received medication. This study was conducted at 95 centers world-wide.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
For participants with a metformin dose of less than 1500 mg/day, a change in metformin dose in the past 8 weeks or on an Oral Anti-Diabetic (OAD), an 8-week metformin-only dose stabilisation period occurred. A 2-week placebo lead in period occurred after the dose stabilisation period or after enrolment if dose stabilisation period was skipped.

  Baseline Characteristics

Population Description
Explanation of how the number of participants for analysis was determined. Includes whether analysis was per protocol, intention to treat, or another method. Also provides relevant details such as imputation technique, as appropriate.
Full Analysis Set defined as all randomized participants (as randomized) who received at least one dose of double-blind study medication, who have a non-missing baseline value and at least one post-baseline efficacy value for at least one efficacy variable during double-blind treatment period.
