Study Description
Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to compare LY2605541 and insulin glargine using the following measures after participants have been treated for 26 weeks:

  • Change in participants' overall blood sugar control
  • The number of night time low blood sugar episodes
  • The number of participants that reach blood sugar targets without low blood sugar episodes at night
  • The total number of low blood sugar episodes reported

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 Drug: LY2605541 Drug: Insulin glargine Phase 3

Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: LY2605541
Administered by subcutaneous (SQ) injection once daily at bedtime. Initial dose based on dose of prestudy basal insulin and adjusted weekly based on FBG. LY2605541 will be given alone or in combination with up to 3 pre-study oral antihyperglycemic medications [OAM(s)] whose use is not excluded in combination with insulin. Treatment may last up to 52 weeks.
Drug: LY2605541
Administered once daily at bedtime by SQ injection
Active Comparator: Insulin glargine
Administered by SQ injection once daily at bedtime. Initial dose based on dose of prestudy basal insulin and adjusted weekly based on FBG. Insulin glargine will be used alone or in combination with up to 3 pre-study OAM(s) whose use is not excluded in combination with insulin. Treatment may last up to 52 weeks.
Drug: Insulin glargine
Administered once daily at bedtime by SQ injection
