Actual Primary Completion Date July 2013   (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: July 11, 2015)
Change From Baseline in Insulin Sensitivity Index [ Time Frame: baseline, 8 weeks ]
The insulin sensitivity index was assessed by hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp (HEGC). A positive change from baseline indicates improvement.
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: June 28, 2012)
Difference in insulin sensitivity index after treatment with LCZ696 or amlodipine [ Time Frame: After 8 weeks of treatment ]
The insulin sensitivity index will be assessed by hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp
Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: July 11, 2015)
  • Local Adipose Tissue Lipolysis, Glycerol Concentrations [ Time Frame: 57 days ]
    Lipolysis was assessed through subcutaneous adipose tissue microdialysis. The actual measure type is adjusted geometric mean.
  • Oxidative Metabolism [ Time Frame: 57 days ]
    Oxidative metabolism was assessed by indirect calorimetry.
  • Number of Participants With Adverse Events, Serious Adverse Events and Deaths [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    Adverse event monitoring was conducted throughout the study.
Original Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: June 28, 2012)
  • Subcutaneous adipose tissue lipolysis at rest [ Time Frame: After 8 weeks of treatment ]
    Assessment will by done by microdialysis.
  • Oxidative metabolism at rest [ Time Frame: After 8 weeks of treatment ]
    Assessment will be done by indirect calorimetry
  • Number of patients with abnormal laboratory values, vital signs, ECGs [ Time Frame: During 8 weeks of treatment ]
    Tolerability will be assessed by Physical examination, vital signs, including seria lsupine BP and pulse measurements, laboratory evaluations (hematology, blood chemistry, urinalysis), ECG, and adverse event monitoring
