Brief Summary:
This is a parallel-group, multi-center, long-term extension study from the GALLANT 4 study to monitor the safety and tolerability of oral tesaglitazar compared with glibenclamide in patients with type 2 diabetes for up to 100 weeks of treatment. The total duration, including treatment and follow-up, is 103 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse events, laboratory variables, physical examination, cardiac evaluation, hypoglycemic events, electrocardiogram, vital signs (blood pressure and pulse), body weight

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Effect of tesaglitazar versus glibenclamide, with or without other oral anti-diabetic drugs on
  2. Time to treatment failure
  3. Changes in glycemic variables: glycosylated hemoglobin A1c and fasting plasma glucose (FPG)
  4. Responder rates and proportion of patients who reach pre-specified target levels for glycosylated hemoglobin A1c and FPG
  5. Markers of insulin resistance by assessment of insulin homeostasis assessment model
  6. Preventing beta-cell function by assessment of changes in the ratios proinsulin/insulin and C-peptide/FPG
  7. Changes in lipid variables (triglyceride, total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol [HDL-C], non-HDL-C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol/HDL-C, apolipoprotein [Apo] B, ApoA-1, ApoB/ApoA-1
  8. Responder rates and proportion of patients who reach pre-specified target levels for triglyceride and HDL-C
  9. Inflammatory and coagulability markers by assessment of C-reactive protein, fibrinogen, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and intracellular adhesion molecule-1
  10. Urinary albumin excretion
  11. Central obesity (waist circumference, hip circumference and waist/hip ratio)
