Examination of the Anti-inflammatory and Insulin Sensitizing Properties of Doxycycline in Humans (DOXY)
Obesity is a heightened state of inflammation in which production of cytokines and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) result in loss of function of insulin receptors and insulin resistance. Doxycycline (DOX) is a potent MMP inhibitor. We hypothesize that DOX will enhance insulin sensitivity and decreases inflammation in obese participants with type 2 diabetes (DM2).

|Primary Completion Date:||June 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Participants with DM2 receiving doxycycline 100mg BID
generic doxycycline 100mg twice daily
Other Name: Vibramycin
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Pills prepared identical to doxycycline.
Placebo comparator to doxycycline
Design and Setting: 84 day (D84), double-blind, randomized, placebo (PL)-controlled clinical trial conducted in an academic tertiary care center.
Patients: Non-DM2 Controls (n=15); participants with DM2 receiving PL (n=13) or DOX (n=11).
Interventions: All participants were evaluated at day 1 (D1); those with DM2 were also evaluated at D84 after DOX 100mg twice daily or PL.
