About this Study:

This study is done to see if semaglutide has an effect on walking ability compared with placebo (dummy medicine) in people with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and type 2 diabetes. Participants will either get semaglutide or placebo ("dummy") medicine - which treatment participants get is decided by chance. Semaglutide is a medicine for type 2 diabetes that can be prescribed by doctors in some countries. Participants will get the study medicine (semaglutide or placebo) in a pre-filled pen for injection. Participants must inject it once a week into the stomach area, thigh, or upper arm, at any time of the day. The study will last for about 59 weeks. Participants will have 8 clinic visits and 1 phone call with the study doctor. At some clinic visits, participants will have blood tests. At some visits participants will also do a treadmill test to measure how far they can walk. Women cannot take part if pregnant, breast-feeding or planning to become pregnant during the study period.

  • Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus at least 180 days prior to the day of screening.
  • Symptomatic PAD with intermittent claudication corresponding to Fontaine stage IIa (Rutherford classification grade I, category 1 and 2) meeting all of the following:
    • Stable symptoms of PAD with intermittent claudication in Fontaine stage IIa (able to walk without stopping more than 200 m/656 feet/2 blocks) for at least 90 days prior to the day of screening based on patient interview.
    • Screening flat treadmill test (3.2 km/h (2 mph)): Pain-free walking distance of at least 200 meters/656 feet.
