Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure: To evaluate the efficacy of vildagliptin as monotherapy in patients with T2DM by assessing changes in HbA1c from baseline to 24 weeks. [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure: To evaluate the efficacy of vildagliptin as monotherapy in patients with T2DM as measured by changes in fasting plasma glucose from baseline to 24 weeks [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Measure: To evaluate the safety and tolerability of vildagliptin compared to placebo over 24 weeks of treatment as monotherapy in patients with T2DM [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Measure: To evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of vildagliptin over the entire study duration as monotherapy in patients with T2DM [ Time Frame: 76 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Measure: To evaluate the body weight change from baseline with vildagliptin compared to placebo after 24 weeks of treatment as monotherapy in patients with T2DM [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
