    ABSTRACT: To investigate the efficacy and tolerability of vildagliptin, a potent and selective dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor, as add-on to glimepiride in Japanese patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) who were inadequately controlled. This 12-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study compared vildagliptin 50mg twice-daily (n=102) with placebo (n=100) when added to a stable dose of glimepiride (>or=1mg/d). Treatment groups were balanced at baseline (glycosylated hemoglobin [HbA(1c)], 7.9%; fasting plasma glucose, 163.8 mg/dL). During treatment HbA(1c) decreased progressively with vildagliptin, but remained unchanged with placebo. The adjusted mean change (AMDelta) at endpoint was -1.0+/-0.1 and -0.1+/-0.1% in vildagliptin- and placebo-treated patients (between-group Delta=-1.0+/-0.1%, P<0.001). A greater proportion of vildagliptin-treated patients had HbA(1c) <or=6.5% compared to placebo-treated patients (45% vs. 3%, P<0.001). The AMDelta FPG was -20.9+/-2.8 mg/dL with vildagliptin compared to 6.3+/-2.8 mg/dL with placebo (between-group Delta=-27.2+/-3.9 mg/dL, P<0.001). Patients in vildagliptin and placebo groups reported similar incidences of adverse events (AEs) (59.8% vs. 57.0%), serious AEs (0% vs. 2.0%), suspected drug-related AEs (21.6% vs. 23.0%), and discontinuation due to AEs (1.0% vs. 3.0%). Hypogylcaemia was reported in two (vildagliptin) and one (placebo) patient. Vildagliptin is effective and well tolerated as an add-on to glimepiride in Japanese patients with T2DM.

    ABSTRACT: To confirm the efficacy of vildagliptin in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) by testing the hypothesis that glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) reduction with vildagliptin is superior to that with voglibose after 12 weeks of treatment. In this 12-week, randomized, double-blind, active-controlled, parallel-group study, the efficacy and safety of vildagliptin (50 mg bid, n = 188) was compared with that of voglibose (0.2 mg tid, n = 192) in patients with T2D who were inadequately controlled with diet and exercise. The characteristics of two groups were well matched at baseline. The mean age, body mass index (BMI) and HbA1c were 59.1 years, 24.9 kg/m(2) and 7.6%, respectively. At baseline, fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and 2-h postprandial glucose (PPG) were 9.01 mmol/l (162.2 mg/dl) and 13.57 mmol/l (244.3 mg/dl), respectively. The adjusted mean change in HbA1c from baseline to endpoint was -0.95 +/- 0.04% in the vildagliptin-treated patients and -0.38 +/- 0.04% in those receiving voglibose (between-group change = 0.57 +/- 0.06%, 95% confidence interval (CI) (-0.68 to -0.46%), p < 0.001), showing that vildagliptin was superior to voglibose. Endpoint HbA1c < or = 6.5% was achieved in 51% vildagliptin-treated patients compared with 24% patients who were on voglibose (p < 0.001). Vildagliptin also exhibited significantly (p < 0.001) greater reduction compared with voglibose in both FPG [1.34 vs. 0.43 mmol/l (24.1 vs. 7.8 mg/dl)] and 2-h PPG [2.86 vs. 1.1 mmol/l (51.5 vs. 19.8 mg/dl)]. Overall adverse events (AEs) were lower in the vildagliptin-treated patients compared with that in the voglibose-treated patients (61.2 vs. 71.4%), with no incidence of hypoglycaemia and serious adverse events with vildagliptin. Gastrointestinal AEs were significantly lower with vildagliptin compared with that of the voglibose (18.6 vs. 32.8%; p = 0.002). Vildagliptin (50 mg bid) showed superior efficacy and better tolerability compared with voglibose in Japanese patients with T2D.

    ABSTRACT: To assess the efficacy and tolerability of vildagliptin (10, 25 or 50mg bid) in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). This 12-week, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study was performed in 291 patients. The primary assessment was change from baseline to endpoint in HbA1c. Baseline HbA1c averaged 7.4%, and the between-treatment difference (vildagliptin-placebo) in the HbA1c adjusted mean change was -0.8%, -1.0% and -1.2% with vildagliptin 10, 25 and 50mg bid, respectively (p<0.001). Relative to baseline, body weight did not change significantly in vildagliptin groups. There was no increase in incidence of adverse events in the vildagliptin groups (62.0%, 62.5% and 61.8%, 10, 25 and 50mg bid, respectively) compared to placebo (73.6%). No deaths or drug-related serious adverse events were reported. Seven hypoglycemic events were observed (four events (n=3), two events (n=2), and one event (n=1) in the vildagliptin 10 and 50mg bid, and placebo, respectively) and none of them were severe or dose related. Vildagliptin 50mg bid was considered to be the most effective and well-tolerated dose, and therefore can be considered the recommended clinical dose for Japanese patients with T2DM.
