Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Average time within glycaemic target range (above 70 mg/dL and below 130 mg/dL) [ Time Frame: In the last four hours of each dosing interval during 14 days of CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) usage in the last 2 weeks of the 6 weeks treatment period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean IG (Interstitial Glucose) based on 14 days of CGM [ Time Frame: After 6 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Fasting plasma glucose (FPG) [ Time Frame: After 6 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • HbA1c (glycosylated haemoglobin) [ Time Frame: After 6 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of treatment emergent AEs (adverse events) [ Time Frame: Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of treatment emergent hypoglycaemic episodes [ Time Frame: Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 24
