The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of AmarylM 1/500 mg twice daily versus Amaryl 4 mg both in combination with Lantus once-daily regimen in type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients with inadequate glycemic control.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Multi-center, Open, Randomized, Parallel-group, 2 Arm Study to Compare the Efficacy and Safety of AmarylM 1/500mg Twice Daily Versus Amaryl 4mg Both in Combination With Lantus Once-daily Regimen in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients With Inadequate Glycemic Control

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Mean change in HbA1c from baseline to the last visit

Secondary outcome:

Mean change in FPG, insulin, c-peptide from baseline to the last visit Safety; Episodes of hypoglycemia & other adverse events

Response rate based on HbA1c and FPG levels measured at the last visit

Mean change in Lantus® dose from baseline to the last visit


Frequency with hypoglycemic episode

Adverse events

Detailed description: There are several kinds of oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs) that are used in the treatment of patients with type 2 DM. Among them, sulfonylurea and metformin are well-established first-line OADs. However, as the beta cell dysfunction progresses over time, patients fail to achieve good glycemic control with OADs alone and need further treatment intensification, usually involving the introduction of insulin either alone or in combination with OADs. Now, an OAD combined with bedtime insulin is one of the recommended treatment options for patients with type 2 DM and OAD failure. But, it still remains unclear which OADs are the most effective in combination with insulin for the treatment of type 2 DM. so, this study we will be able to verify which OADs are the most effective in combination with insulin for the treatment of type 2 DM.


Minimum age: 20 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.
