Recruitment Details

Patients were recruited in Principal Investigator's private practice, in Mexico City.

First Patient Entered: 15 Feb 2007. Last Patient's Last Visit: 27 Jun 2008

Pre-assignment Details Patients 30 to 78 years of age with inadequate glycemic control (Glycosylated hemoglobin A1C (A1C) 6.5 to 11%) on diet/exercise and metformin dosed at ≥1500 mg per day patients were to receive either sitagliptin added to ongoing metformin or "standard care" added to ongoing metformin.
Arm/Group Title Sitagliptin + Metformin Metformin + Any Non-DPP-4i Oral Antidiabetic Drug Metformin Alone
Hide Arm/Group Description Patients administered sitagliptin and metformin Patients in the 'standard care' group were to receive continued treatment with metformin and usual care per practice but not to be treated with sitagliptin or another Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitor (DPP-4i). As prespecified in the protocol, no efficacy was to be assessed for patients receiving "standard care". Patients in the 'standard care' group were to receive continued treatment with metformin and usual care per practice but not to be treated with sitagliptin or another Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitor (DPP-4i). As prespecified in the protocol, no efficacy was to be assessed for patients receiving "standard care".
