The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of canagliflozin compared with sitagliptin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who are receiving treatment with metformin and sulphonylurea and have inadequate glycemic (blood sugar) control.
Canagliflozin is a drug that is being tested to see if it may be useful in treating patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). This is a randomized (study drug assigned by chance), double-blind (neither the patient or the study doctor will know the name of the assigned treatment), multicenter study to determine the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of canagliflozin 300 mg compared to sitagliptin 100 mg (an antihyperglycemic drug) in patients with T2DM who are not achieving an adequate response from current antihyperglycemic therapy with metformin and sulphonylurea to control their diabetes. Approximately 720 patients with T2DM who are receiving combination therapy with metformin and sulphonylurea will receive the addition of once-daily treatment with canagliflozin 300 mg or sitagliptin 100 mg capsules for 52 weeks. Patients will participate in the study for approximately 59 to 72 weeks. During treatment, patients will be monitored for safety by review of adverse events, results from laboratory tests, 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs), vital signs measurements, body weight, physical examinations, and self monitored blood glucose (SMBG) measurements. The primary outcome measure in the study is the effect of canagliflozin compared to sitagliptin on hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) after 52 weeks of treatment. Study drug will be taken orally (by mouth) once daily before the first meal each day unless otherwise specified. Patients will take single-blind placebo for 2 weeks before randomization. After randomization, patients in the study will take double-blind canagliflozin 300 mg or matching sitagliptin 100 mg for 52 weeks.

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.
A pharmaceutical preparation of sitagliptin phosphate and metformin hydrochloride that is used in the treatment of TYPE 2 DIABETES.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).
