The aim of this study is to verify whether a significant decrease in glucose levels can be achieved with the HM74A agonist GSK256073 in type 2 diabetic patients. Several dose levels and a placebo will be evaluated in a three period crossover study with two active doses and one placebo dose per subject, in order to determine whether there is a dose that produces glucose lowering in the target population. In addition, this study will investigate the optimal dosing regimen for full manifestation of any metabolic effect of GSK256073 by comparing once a day versus twice a day regimens.
This is a multi-center study that will enroll approximately 36 subjects. The study consists of three periods of two days of dosing each. The study will evaluate 5 potential dose regimens. Each subject will receive a randomized sequence of treatments over three periods, with placebo treatment in one period and two different active dose regimens in the other two periods. There will be 5 to 12 days of outpatient washout between treatment periods. Subjects will continue their current treatment on metformin throughout the study. Subjects will monitor blood glucose levels daily via glucometer during oupatient washout periods. A follow-up visit will occur between 5 and 10 days after the last period of the study.

The incidence of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) has increased in recent decades, as has the incidence of preterm births (
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.
