Comparison of the Efficacy and Safety Between Pioglitazone and Placebo Added to Combination Therapy in Type 2 Diabetes

2014-08-27 03:18:48 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this trial is to study the efficacy and safety of pioglitazone added to combination therapy of sulfonylurea plus metformin with placebo in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Description

Pioglitazone hydrochloride, a thiazolidinedione compound, is a new therapeutic agent for the treatment of type 2 diabetes that reduces insulin resistance by enhancing insulin action in skeletal muscle, liver, and adipose tissue. In the study of diabetes, pioglitazone reduced the hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia, and hypertriglyceridemia characteristic of insulin-resistant states. The metabolic changes induced by pioglitazone result in increased responsiveness of insulin-dependent tissues and are observed in numerous models of insulin resistance.

In the present randomized, double-blind, parallel study, we aim to compare the efficacy and safety of pioglitazone added to combination therapy of sulfonylurea plus metformin with those of sulfonylurea plus metformin for the treatment of type 2 diabetic patients.

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.
