PURPOSE: Comparative efficacy of exenatide versus insulin glargine primarily on glucemic control, and secondarily on body mass index (BMI), lipid profile and blood pressure, in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients suboptimally treated with metformin monotherapy. MATERIAL/METHODS: Forty-seven inadequately treated T2DM patients on metformin assigned to exenatide (n=18) or insulin glargine (n=29) for 26 weeks.

The Leuven IIT study, was however, an unblinded, single center study with unique patient and institutional characteristics that may not extrapolate to practice elsewhere in the world. Indeed, recent randomized controlled studies have been unable to demonstrate any benefit from tight glucemic control. We suggest that the widespread adoption of tight glycemic control be abandoned at this time...
