  Purpose

This randomized, open-label, parallel arm study will compare the safety, tolerab ility and effect on glycemic control of taspoglutide versus insulin glargine in insulin-naïve patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus inadequately controlled on merformin and sulfonylurea combination therapy. Patients will be randomized to r eceive either taspoglutide 10mg subcutaneously (sc) weekly, or taspoglutide 10mg sc weekly for 4 weeks followed by 20mg sc weekly, or insulin glargine at an ini tial dose of 10 international units sc daily. Metformin treatment will be contin ued in all patients throughout the study, whereas sulfonylurea will be discontin ued before starting study treatment. Anticipated time on study treatment is 24 w eeks, with an option to continue the assigned treatment for another 28 weeks. Ta rget sample size is 500-600 patients.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Glycemic control assessed by HbA1c [ Time Frame: week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Fasting plasma glucose, incidence of hypoglycemia, proportion of patients achieving target HbA1c [ Time Frame: week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Body weight, lipid profile (triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL and HDL cholesterol, LDL/HDL ratio) [ Time Frame: week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety and tolerability: Adverse events (including hypoglycemia), vital signs, laboratory parameters [ Time Frame: throughout study, laboratory assessments weeks 12, 24, 32 and 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Meal tolerance test (in a subset of patients): Glucose, insulin, C-peptide, glucagon values [ Time Frame: week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
