Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline to 6 months of centrally measured HbA1c [ Time Frame: baseline to 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in weight, BMI, waist circumference, 6 points glucose profile, insulin doses, % of daily use of insulin as basal rate, % of daily use of insulin as bolus, quality of life questionnaire [ Time Frame: baseline to 6 months ]
  • Change from baseline in mean blood glucose value [ Time Frame: baseline to 6 months ]
    occurrence of hyperglycemia above 190 mg/dl expressed as Area under the Curve (high) above 190 mg/dl (10.5 mmol/l), occurrence of hypoglycemia below 70 mg/dl (3.9 mmol/l) expressed as Area Under the Curve (low) below 70 mg/dl, glycemic variability (MAGE index).

Estimated Enrollment: 110
Study Start Date: November 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: exenatide
55 subjects
Drug: Exenatide

Research drug (exenatide or placebo), will begin at V0, after randomization. The initial dosage for the first month will be 5 µg SC BID. Injections can be administered at any time within the 60 minute period before the morning and evening meal.

From V1, research drug will be titrated from 5 to 10 µg SC BID. If gastro-intestinal adverse effects occur with 10 µg SC BID, the dosage will be back-titrated to 5 µg SC BID. Thus, the higher research drug dosage tolerated will be used during the study time.

Ages Eligible for Study:   35 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Men or women aged 35 to 70
  • Type 2 diabetes diagnosed for at least 12 months, according the criteria of the American Diabetes Association :

    • presence of classic symptoms of diabetes mellitus with unequivocal elevation of plasma glucose (2-hour post-prandial or random glucose >200 mg/dL) or
    • fasting plasma glucose elevation on more than 1 occasion > 125 mg/dL or
    • patient currently undergoing pharmacological and/or non-pharmacological treatment for diabetes mellitus
  • CSII treatment using a rapid analog for at least 6 month (CSII being initiated in patients with HbA1c > 8 % despite a well-conducted MDI trial using a 2 to 5 daily injection regimen)
  • HbA1c ≥ 7,5% and ≤ 10 %
  • BMI ≥ 25 and ≤ 45
  • Stable body weight (≤10% variation) during the 3 last months

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Type 1 diabetes assessed by positive anti-GAD65 or anti-insulin or anti-IA2 antibodies
  • Monogenic diabetes (MODY, mitochondrial diabetes…)
  • Current treatment with OHA (OHA ought to be interrupted at least two months prior to inclusion in the study)
  • Current treatment specifically addressed for weight lost (orlistat, sibutramine, rimonabant may be interrupted at least 3 months prior to inclusion in the study)
  • Use of corticosteroid therapy for more than 10 days within the 3-past months, or patient who ought to be treated by corticosteroid during the study period
  • Clinically significant hepatic disease
  • Documented gastroparesis, or current use of drugs that directly affect gastrointestinal motility, or any significant abdominal disease that may increase the risk of adverse gastrointestinal effects induced by exenatide
  • Kidney failure (MDRD less than 50 ml/min)
  • Pregnancy/breastfeeding
  • Any social and/or mental condition rendering the subject unable to understand the scope and possible consequences of the study
  • Concurrent enrolment in another clinical trial
  • Geographically inaccessible for follow-up visits required by protocol
