Efficacy and Safety of the Insulin Glargine/Lixisenatide Fixed Ratio Combination (FRC) Versus GLP-1 Receptor Agonist in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes With a FRC Extension Period


Brief description of study

Primary Objective:

To demonstrate the superiority of the insulin glargine/lixisenatide fixed ratio combination (FRC) versus GLP-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1 RA) in hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) change.

Secondary Objectives:

To compare the overall efficacy and safety of the insulin glargine/lixisenatide fixed ratio combination (FRC) to GLP-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1 RA) on top of metformin (with or without pioglitazone, with or without SGLT2 inhibitor) in patients with type 2 diabetes.

To evaluate safety, efficacy and other endpoints of FRC up to the end of the extension period.

Detailed Study Description

The maximum duration for GLP1-RA patients will be approximately 29 weeks: an up to 2 week screening period, a 26 week treatment period (either randomized or uncontrolled), and a 3 or 9 day post-treatment safety followup period.

Maximum duration for FRC patients will be approximately 55 weeks: an up to 2- week screening period, a 26-week randomized treatment period, a 26-week extension period and a 3-day post-treatment safety follow-up period. All primary and secondary efficacy, safety and other endpoints will be also assessed at the end of the extension period.
