An Investigational Drug Study in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
The purpose of this investigational study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (a specific type of diabetes).
The duration of treatment is 104 weeks.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
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).
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1
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.
Diabetes Mellitus, Lipoatrophic
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.
The clinical study determines the safety and efficacy of MK0431 in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who have inadequate glycemic control on pioglitazone as monotherapy.
The purpose of the study is to compare how sitagliptin and glipizide lower blood glucose levels in patients with moderate and severe renal insufficiency.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug in patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) (a specific type of diabetes).
This study will examine the safety and efficacy of the addition of sitagliptin (MK0431) compared to placebo in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with inadequate glycemic control who a...
A clinical study determines the safety and efficacy of sitagliptin (MK0431) in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus who have inadequate glycemic control on diet/exercise therapy
Purpose The case of a patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus who received combination exenatide-sitagliptin with glipizide is reported. Summary A 55-year-old, 204-lb Caucasian woman arrived at a clinic...
The efficacy and safety of taspoglutide, a long-acting human glucagon-like peptide-1 analog, were compared with sitagliptin or placebo, as adjunct to metformin, in patients with inadequately controlle...
Aim: To assess the efficacy and safety of saxagliptin vs. glipizide as add-on therapy to metformin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and inadequate glycaemic control on metformin alone. Met...
Introduction: There is a need for new and improved treatments for type 2 diabetes. Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) is a gut hormone that stimulates insulin secretion and the levels of GLP-1 can be inc...
BACKGROUND: Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors improve glycaemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus when used as monotherapy or in combination with other anti-diabetic drugs (metformin,...
