Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline (Day -1) to Day 28 in Twenty-Four-Hour Weighted Average Glucose (24-Hour WAG) [ Time Frame: From baseline (Day -1) to Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Difference is calculated as the change in 24-hour WAG in Least Square Mean (LSM) from baseline to Day 28 of each treatment group (pioglitazone, JNJ-41443532 250 mg, JNJ-41443532 1000 mg, and placebo). The statistical analyses shows the treatment differences (ie, each study medication group minus placebo) in the LSM change. 24-hour WAG is defined as the area under the plasma glucose concentration time curve over 0 to 24 hours, divided by 24.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline to Day 28 in Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) [ Time Frame: From baseline to Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Difference is calculated as the change in FPG in Least Square Mean (LSM) from baseline to Day 28 of each treatment group (pioglitazone, JNJ-41443532 250 mg, JNJ-41443532 1000 mg, and placebo). The statistical analyses shows the treatment differences (ie, each study medication group minus placebo) in the LSM change.

  • Change From Baseline to Day 28 in Insulin Secretion [ Time Frame: From baseline to Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Difference is calculated as the change in insulin secretion in Least Square Mean (LSM) from baseline to Day 28 of each treatment group (pioglitazone, JNJ-41443532 250 mg, JNJ-41443532 1000 mg, and placebo). The statistical analyses shows the treatment differences (ie, each study medication group minus placebo) in the LSM change. Insulin secretion is measured by the absolute change in Homeostasis Model Assessment of steady state islet beta cell (HOMA-%B). HOMA-%B calculated as: (360 multiplied by Insulin [pmol/L]) divided by ([Glucose {mg/dL} minus 63] multiplied by 6.945). Higher value is better (signifies improvement relative to baseline).

  • Change From Baseline to Day 28 in Insulin Resistance [ Time Frame: From baseline to Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Difference is calculated as the change in insulin resistance in Least Square Mean (LSM) from baseline to Day 28 of each treatment group (pioglitazone, JNJ-41443532 250 mg, JNJ-41443532 1000 mg, and placebo). The statistical analyses shows the treatment differences (ie, each study medication group minus placebo) in the LSM change. Insuline sensitivity is measured by absolute change in Homeostasis Model Assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR). Insulin sensitivity is HOMA-%S and HOMA-IR is the reciprocal of HOMA-%S. HOMA-IR calculated as: (Glucose [mg/dL]) multiplied by Insulin [pmol/L]) divided by (405 multiplied by 6.945). Lower value is better (signifies improvement relative to baseline).

  • Change From Baseline to Day 28 in Systemic Levels of Interleukin 6 (IL-6) [ Time Frame: From baseline to Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Difference is calculated as the geometric mean change in IL-6 from baseline to Day 28 of each treatment group (JNJ-41443532 250 mg, JNJ-41443532 1000 mg, and placebo). The statistical analyses shows the treatment differences (ie, each study medication group minus placebo) in the geometric mean change. IL-6 is a systemic inflammatory markers and is an independent predictors of insulin resistance and progression to type 2 diabetes mellitus. IL-6 was not measured for pioglitazone guoup. The unit of IL-6 is picograms per milliliter (pg/mL).

  • Change From Baseline to Day 28 in Systemic Levels of Interleukin 18 (IL-18) [ Time Frame: From baseline to Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Difference is calculated as the geometric mean change in IL-18 from baseline to Day 28 of each treatment group (JNJ-41443532 250 mg, JNJ-41443532 1000 mg, and placebo). The statistical analyses shows the treatment differences (ie, each study medication group minus placebo) in the geometric mean change. IL-18 was not measured for pioglitazone group. The unit of IL-18 is picograms per milliliter (pg/mL)

  • Change From Baseline to Day 28 in Systemic Levels of C-Reactive Protein (CRP) [ Time Frame: From baseline to Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Difference is calculated as the geometric mean change in CRP from baseline to Day 28 of each treatment group (JNJ-41443532 250 mg, JNJ-41443532 1000 mg, and placebo). The statistical analyses shows the treatment differences (ie, each study medication group minus placebo) in the geometric mean change. CRP was not measured for pioglitazone group.

  • Change From Baseline to Day 29 in Body Weight [ Time Frame: From baseline to Day 29 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Difference is calculated as the change in body weight in Least Square Mean (LSM) from baseline to Day 29 of each treatment group (pioglitazone, JNJ-41443532 250 mg, JNJ-41443532 1000 mg, and placebo). The statistical analyses shows the treatment differences (ie, each study medication group minus placebo) in the LSM change.

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized (the study medication is assigned by chance), double-blind (neither investigator nor participant knows the treatment that the participant receives), multicenter (study conducted at multiple sites), and placebo (an inactive substance that is compared with a medication to test whether the medication has a real effect in a clinical study) and active comparator (an established effective treatment that is compared with a medication to test whether the medication has a real effect in a clinical study) controlled study (placebo or active comparator is compared with the study medication to test whether the study medication has a real effect in clinical study). The study consists of 4 phases: screening phase (45 days before administration of study medication); pre-dosing run-in phase (a phase before a clinical study is commenced when no treatment is given. In this study, participant's glucose level will be observed during run-in-phase: days 15 to 1 before administration of study medication); treatment phase, and follow-up phase (7 to 10 days after the last dose of the study medication). Approximately 88 participants will be enrolled in this study. All participants will be randomly assigned to 4 treatment arms: JNJ-41443532 250 mg; JNJ-41443532 1000 mg; pioglitazone arm; and placebo. Safety evaluations will include assessment of adverse events including ocular assessments, clinical laboratory tests, electrocardiogram, vital signs, and physical examination which will be monitored throughout the study. The maximum study duration for each participant will be approximately 12 weeks.
