Safety and Tolerability Study of Oral LGD-6972 for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

2014-10-29 22:38:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Ligand Pharmaceuticals Incorporated is developing LGD-6972, a novel, orally-bioavailable addition to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The mechanism of action of LGD-6972 is to reduce the excess liver glucose production characteristic of type 2 diabetes mellitus that is a major contributor to hyperglycemia. This clinical trial will evaluate the safety and tolerability of escalating doses LGD-6972 administered daily over 2 - 4 weeks in both healthy subjects and subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Description

This is to be a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, sequential, multiple oral dose study conducted in normoglycemic healthy subjects (NHS) (Part 1) and subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) who are treated with monotherapy metformin (a stable dose at randomization) along with diet and exercise (Part 2). Subjects with T2DM who are not on a stable dose of metformin but meet all other entry criteria may be enrolled in the study at the discretion of the Investigator, but must undergo a stabilization period of at least 12 weeks before determining eligibility for the study. In Part 1, a single group of healthy subjects will be dosed with repeated oral doses of 15 mg of LGD-6972 or placebo once daily (QD) for 14 days. In Part 2, a maximum of 3 groups of subjects with T2DM will be dosed with 3 sequential, increasing doses of LGD-6972 (5 mg, 15 mg or 30 mg) or placebo QD for 28 days.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
