BACKGROUND New treatments for type 2 diabetes mellitus are needed to retain insulin-glucose coupling and lower the risk of weight gain and hypoglycaemia. We aimed to investigate the safety and efficacy of liraglutide as monotherapy for this disorder. METHODS In a double-blind, double-dummy, active-control, parallel-group study, 746 patients with early(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the efficacy and safety of liraglutide in type 2 diabetes mellitus vs placebo and insulin glargine (A21Gly,B31Arg,B32Arg human insulin), all in combination with metformin and glimepiride. This randomised (using a telephone or web-based randomisation system), parallel-group, controlled 26 week trial of 581 patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE The efficacy and safety of adding liraglutide (a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist) to metformin were compared with addition of placebo or glimepiride to metformin in subjects previously treated with oral antidiabetes (OAD) therapy. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In this 26-week, double-blind, double-dummy, placebo- and active-controlled,(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the efficacy and safety of liraglutide (a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist) when added to metformin and rosiglitazone in type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This 26-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial randomized 533 subjects (1:1:1) to once-daily liraglutide (1.2 or 1.8 mg) or liraglutide(More)
AIM To compare the effects of combining liraglutide (0.6, 1.2 or 1.8 mg/day) or rosiglitazone 4 mg/day (all n >or= 228) or placebo (n = 114) with glimepiride (2-4 mg/day) on glycaemic control, body weight and safety in Type 2 diabetes. METHODS In total, 1041 adults (mean +/- sd), age 56 +/- 10 years, weight 82 +/- 17 kg and glycated haemoglobin (HbA(1c))(More)
Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a polypeptide hormone secreted by the l-cells in the gastrointestinal tract, has shown promising effects as a new treatment modality for patients with Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus. However, the pharmacokinetic profile of native GLP-1 with a rapid elimination has limited its therapeutic potential. NN2211(More)
RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS — Main inclusion criteria were patients aged 18 years with type 2 diabetes and A1C 7.5 and 10.0% (diet) or 7.0 and 9.5% (mono–oral antidiabetes drug); previous therapy was discontinued. Fasting plasma glucose (FPG) at randomization was 7–13 mmol/l. If FPG was 15 mmol/l during the study, the patient was withdrawn. The study was(More)
RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS — In this 26-week, double-blind, doubledummy, placeboand active-controlled, parallel-group trial, 1,091 subjects were randomly assigned (2:2:2:1:2) to once-daily liraglutide (either 0.6, 1.2, or 1.8 mg/day injected subcutaneously), to placebo, or to glimepiride (4 mg once daily). All treatments were in combination therapy with(More)
Liraglutide is a novel once-daily human glucagon-like peptide (GLP)-1 analog in clinical use for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. To study metabolism and excretion of [(3)H]liraglutide, a single subcutaneous dose of 0.75 mg/14.2 MBq was given to healthy males. The recovered radioactivity in blood, urine, and feces was measured, and metabolites were(More)
AIM The effect on body composition of liraglutide, a once-daily human glucagon-like peptide-1 analogue, as monotherapy or added to metformin was examined in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). METHODS These were randomized, double-blind, parallel-group trials of 26 [Liraglutide Effect and Action in Diabetes-2 (LEAD-2)] and 52 weeks (LEAD-3). Patients(More)
