Glycemic Effect of Colesevelam HCl (Welchol) in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

2014-07-23 21:12:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to obtain continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) data from individuals taking Welchol compared to placebo. The CGM data will determine the effect on glucose control of adding Welchol to an anti-diabetic medication regimen.

Description

To understand the effect of the addition of colesevelam HCl to oral agent therapy in individuals with type 2 diabetes on glycemic control by utilizing a novel technology, continuous glucose monitoring with ambulatory glucose profile analysis. To date there are no studies of this compound that have employed continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) with ambulatory glucose profile (AGP) analysis to obtain data that will detail the diurnal glucose patterns associated with this therapy. We plan to employ CGM at critical points throughout the study. AGP analysis will enable rapid assessment of the clinical status of the subject. Using statistically stable estimates of hourly values represented by five percentile curves AGP depicts glucose exposure, variability and stability. Previously, we have used AGP analysis to characterize glucose perturbations in individuals ranging from normal glucose tolerance to overt type 2 diabetes.

The Role of Metformin and Colesevelam in Human GLP-1 Secretion

Our primary hypothesis is that bile acid sequestrant colesevelam and the antidiabetic drug metformin potentiates the secretion of the gut hormone glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 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.

A severe type of hyperlipidemia, sometimes familial, that it is characterized by the elevation of both plasma CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES contained in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Type V hyperlipoproteinemia is often associated with DIABETES MELLITUS and is not caused by reduced LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE activity as in HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE I .

Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).

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.
