The purpose of this study is to evaluate the cardiovascular outcomes of alogliptin, once daily (QD), compared with placebo, in addition to standard of care, in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus and acute coronary syndrome.
Alogliptin is a selective and potent dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor currently being developed by Takeda for use in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Results from five phase 3 double-blind, placebo-controlled, 26-week studies have demonstrated that alogliptin is effective in reducing glycosylated hemoglobin as monotherapy and when added to commonly used antidiabetic agents, including sulfonylureas, metformin, thiazolidinediones, and insulin. Alogliptin is well-tolerated and associated with few adverse events.
Cardiovascular outcomes is of special interest in the type 2 diabetes mellitus population, particularly in type 2 diabetes mellitus subjects who have cardiovascular disease and are at high risk for major adverse cardiac events, such as those patients who have had recent acute coronary syndrome.
This study has been designed to evaluate the cardiovascular safety of alogliptin versus placebo in addition to Standard of Care in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus and acute coronary syndrome.

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.
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).
A life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, primarily of TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS with severe INSULIN deficiency and extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA. It is characterized by excessive LIPOLYSIS, oxidation of FATTY ACIDS, production of KETONE BODIES, a sweet smell to the breath (KETOSIS;) DEHYDRATION; and depressed consciousness leading to COMA.
