  Purpose

This study is not being conducted in the United States. Many people with type 2 diabetes cannot maintain target blood glucose levels when taking a single oral drug. The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of vildagliptin, an unapproved drug, compared to that of gliclazide in lowering overall blood glucose levels when added to metformin in people with type 2 diabetes not at target blood glucose levels on metformin alone.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in HbA1c at 52 weeks [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse event profile after 52 weeks of treatment [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Change from baseline in fasting plasma glucose at 52 weeks [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
