Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM)
Drug: Comparator: sitagliptin phosphate
Drug: Comparator: placebo (unspecified)
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Glucose 5-Hour Incremental AUC at Week 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants underwent the 5-hour meal test prior to randomization (baseline) and was repeated at the conclusion of the 6-week double-blind study period. The change from baseline in Glucose 5-Hour Incremental AUC at Week 6 is computed as the difference between the Week 6 measurement and the baseline measurement.
