Further study details as provided by Medical University of Vienna:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess whether monotherapy with Vildagliptin improve glycemic control in kidney transplanted patients with newly diagnosed NODAT as judged in OGTT 3 months after treatment start compared to placebo. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess differences in the change in HbA1c and fasting plasma glucose after 3 months after treatment start and to assess the safety and efficacy of Vildagliptin in renal transplanted patients. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 32
Study Start Date: September 2009
Study Completion Date: December 2012
Primary Completion Date: August 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Vildagliptin, 50 mg, peroral Drug: Vildagliptin
Patients receive once daily 50 mg Vildagliptin
Placebo Comparator: Placebo pill

Detailed Description:

Development of new onset diabetes mellitus after transplantation (NODAT) also called post-transplant diabetes mellitus (PTDM) increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and poor short term clinical outcomes. There is currently no doubt about the fact that NODAT is a condition that needs medical attention and treatment. Although most centers follow treatment regimens for DM type II prospective data about their effectiveness in NODAT are lacking. Little information exists in kidney transplantation regarding conventional glucose-lowering therapies, either oral hypoglycemic agents or traditional insulin regimens. The Aim of this study was to evaluate whether a monotherapy with Vildagliptin improve glycemic control and to assess the safety in kidney transplanted patients with newly diagnosed NODAT.
