Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to the first occurrence of microalbuminuria defined as excretion of greater than 35 mg albumin/g urine creatinine for women and greater than 25 mg albumin/g urine creatinine for men in morning spot urine [ Time Frame: Time to the first occurrence ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
