  3. Type 2 diabetes of longer than 12 weeks duration documented in medical records, for example: local laboratory evidence through medical record review of elevated HbA1c ( 6.5% [48 mmol/mol]), elevated plasma glucose (fasting 126 mg/dL [7.0 mmol/L], 2-hour 200 mg/dL [11.1 mmol/L] during oral glucose tolerance testing, or random value 200 mg/dL with classic symptoms, or currently taking medication for treatment of diabetes; AND either

    • v. Symptomatic lower extremity PAD (ie, intermittent claudication, rest pain, lower extremity ischemic ulceration, or major amputation with either ankle-brachial index 0.9 or other diagnostic testing [eg, toe-brachial index, angiogram, or other imaging study])
    • vi. Prior arterial revascularization procedure (including coronary, carotid, or peripheral angioplasty/stenting, bypass, or atherectomy/endarterectomy)

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Current or planned use of fibrates or agents with PPAR- agonist activity (eg, saroglitazar) within 6 weeks (42 days) of Visit 1 (Screening/Enrollment Visit). Note: PPAR- agonists (eg, glizatones such as pioglitazone and rosiglitazone) are allowed
  2. Known sensitivity to PPAR- agonists or tablet excipients
  3. Initiation of, or change in, current TG-lowering therapy within 12 weeks of Visit 1 (if applicable). Note: TG-lowering therapy is defined as niacin > 100 mg/day or dietary supplements or prescription omega-3 fatty acids > 1 g/day
  4. Type 1 diabetes mellitus
