Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse events, laboratory variables, physical examination, cardiac evaluation, hypoglycemic events, electrocardiogram, vital signs (blood pressure and pulse), body weight

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacodynamic: fasting plasma glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin A1c, lipid variables (triglyceride, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol)
  2. Responder rates and proportion of patients on tesaglitazar who reach pre-specified target levels for triglyceride, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol
  3. C-reactive protein
  4. Central obesity (waist circumference, hip circumference, waist/hip ratio)
