This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study will evaluate the effect of aleglitazar on renal function, the renin-angiotensin system and the pharmacokinetics of lisinopril in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus treated with lisinopril. Patients on a stable dose of lisinopril (20 mg daily orally) for 2 weeks will be randomized to receive either aleglitazar (150 mcg orally daily) or placebo in addition to lisinopril for 4 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Glomerular filtration rate (mGFR), measured as iohexol clearance [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Estimated glomerular filtration rate, using modification of diet in renal disease formula (eGFR[MDRD]) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effective renal plasma flow rate (ERPF), measured as Para-amino hippuric acid (PAH) clearance (PAH plasma concentrations) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Electrolyte blood/urine concentrations [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Renin-angiotensin system: plasma renin/aldosterone levels) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) blood levels [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety: Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: up to 18 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effect of multiple doses of aleglitazar on lisinopril steady-state pharmacokinetics (area under the concentration - time curve [AUC]) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Steady-state pharmacokinetics (AUC) of aleglitazar in co-administration with lisinopril [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • High density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) blood levels [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
