This trial is conducted in the United States of America (USA). The study will compare A1C reduction achieved in patients receiving biphasic insulin aspart 70/30 once or twice daily to patients receiving exenatide twice daily. Patients enrolled in the study will be insulin naive patients who have not achieved glycemic control with metformin and sulfonylurea.
