Detailed Description:

Patients in the trial will be randomized to one of the LY2189265 doses (4 doses are planned, range 0.1-1.5mg) or placebo. The main purpose is to assess dose-dependent effect of this new compound on blood glucose over a period of 12 weeks. Therefore, hemoglobin A1c is chosen as the primary efficacy measure. Several other attributes of glycemic control and endocrine function of pancreas will be assessed as secondary objectives. These secondary objectives will be used to compare the effect of the experimental compound and placebo. Since LY2189265 is in early phase of development, comprehensive safety assessment is planned to learn more about possible side-effects and to establish benefit/risk profile of individual doses of the drug. The trial is organized in four phases: screening, lead-in period to establish baseline status of participants in each group, treatment period during which patients will be randomized into 5 groups (4 will receive one of the LY2189265 doses, 1 group will receive placebo), and safety follow up. Maximum of 9 study visits are planned. Study drug (LY2189265 or placebo) will be administered once weekly via SC injections.
