Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the proportion of vildagliptin treated patients achieving HbA1c reduction and/or proportion reaching investigator defined target HbA1c relative to placebo [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of vildagliptin in elderly patients with T2DM who are drug-naive or inadequately controlled with oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs) including physical exam, vital sign, hematology, chemistry and electrocardiogram. [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To evaluate the proportion of vildagliptin treated patients achieving fasting plasma glucose (FPG) reduction relative to placebo [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To assess the responder rates of patients treated with vildagliptin as compared to placebo [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
