Linagliptin 2.5 mg Twice Daily Versus 5 mg Once Daily as add-on Therapy to Twice Daily Metformin in Type 2 Diabetes
The objective of the study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of linagliptin 2.5 mg twice daily compared to 5 mg once daily compared to placebo given orally for 12 weeks as add-on therapy to metformin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with insufficient glycaemic control. It is planned to show non-inferiority of linagliptin 2.5 mg twice daily compared to 5 mg once daily and each treatment's superiority over placebo.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
linagliptin low dose, placebo, linagliptin medium dose

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)
Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.
Radiotherapy where there is improved dose homogeneity within the tumor and reduced dosage to uninvolved structures. The precise shaping of dose distribution is achieved via the use of computer-controlled multileaf collimators.
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

[Objectives] Linagliptin is a novel, highly selective and long acting DPP-4 inhibitor for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Linagliptin exhibits non-linear pharmacokinetics (PK) due to...
Unlike other dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4) inhibitors, the excretion of linagliptin is mainly through a biliary route. Despite this fact, liver injury with linagliptin has thus far not been reported...
Effect of linagliptin compared to glimepiride on postprandial glucose metabolism, islet cell function, and vascular function parameters in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus on ongoing metformin treatment.
The goal of this study was to investigate the effects of linagliptin compared to glimepiride on alpha and beta cell function and several vascular biomarkers after a standardised test meal.
Inflammation and glycemic control are important prognosis-related factors for hemodialysis (HD) patients; moreover, inflammation affects insulin secretion. Here, we evaluated the anti-inflammatory eff...
