Last Update Posted : November 2, 2016
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Hoffmann-La Roche

Brief Summary:
This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group, multicenter study will evaluate the potential of aleglitazar to reduce cardiovascular risk in patients with stable cardiovascular disease and glucose abnormalities. Patients will be randomized 1:1 to receive either aleglitazar 150 mcg orally daily or matching placebo.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 Drug: Placebo Drug: aleglitazar Phase 3

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 1999 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Study Start Date : December 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : November 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : November 2013

Resource links provided by the National Library of Medicine

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Aleglitazar Drug: aleglitazar
150 mcg orally daily

Placebo Comparator: Placebo Drug: Placebo
matching aleglitazar placebo tablet orally daily

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to first occurrence of any component of the composite event (cardiovascular death, non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI), non-fatal stroke) as adjudicated by the Clinical Events Committee (CEC) [ Time Frame: 5 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to first occurrence of a composite with components as adjudicated by the CEC: cardiovascular death, non-fatal MI and non-fatal stroke (in each of the subgroups with or without evidence of T2D at baseline) [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
  2. Time to first occurrence of a composite with components as adjudicated by the CEC: all-cause mortality, non-fatal MI and non-fatal stroke (in each of the subgroups with or without evidence of T2D at baseline) [ Time Frame: 5 years ]

Age >/= 40 years with history with prior CV event of prior myocardial infarction or prior ischemic stroke (confirmed by brain imaging study), with onset >/= 3 months prior to randomization and stable in the Investigator's judgment B. Age >/= 55 years with evidence of CVD (stable in the Investigator's judgment), defined as at least one of the following: Coronary disease, cerebrovascular disease or peripheral arterial disease as defined by protocol
  • Patients with glucose abnormalities based on one of the following A-B criteria:

A. Established Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) according to 2010 ADA criteria; treatment may include diet alone, or any glucose-lowering therapies except for thiazolidinediones (TDZs) B. No fulfillment of criterion A) but evidence of glucose abnormalities

  • Hospitalization for a primary diagnosis of heart failure in the 12-month period preceding randomization
  • Peripheral edema which in the judgment of the Investigator in believed to be severe and of cardiac origin
  • History of surgical coronary revascularization (CABG) less than 5 years prior to screening, except in cases of subsequent myocardial infarction
  • Currently scheduled for arterial revascularization procedures
