Exploratory Study to Access the Metabolic Effects of Ranolazine in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus When Added to Ongoing Non-insulin Antidiabetic Therapy

2014-08-27 03:12:10 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purposes of this study are to:

- explore the effect of ranolazine in lowering HbA1c after 12-week treatment when added to ongoing non-insulin antidiabetic therapy in subjects with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM)

- explore the postprandial glucose lowering effect of ranolazine using the Mixed Meal Tolerance Test (MMTT)

- explore the glucose lowering effect of ranolazine on fasting serum glucose

Description

The planned study includes subjects with T2DM who are currently on non-insulin antidiabetic therapy with diet and exercise and who would benefit from additional control of blood glucose levels. The endpoints include the assessment of ranolazine effects on HbA1c as well as its effects on fasting and postprandial glucose.

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.
