  • Subjects that have been enrolled in previous vildagliptin studies or other DPP
  • 4 inhibitor studies within six months
  • History of renal transplant or immunosuppressant therapy
  • Acute infections which may affect blood glucose control or other medical condition that may interfere with the interpretation of efficacy and safety data during the study
