Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baseline in Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HbA1c) [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The change in the value of glycosylated hemoglobin (the concentration of glucose bound to hemoglobin as a percent of the absolute maximum that can be bound) collected at week 24 relative to baseline.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of HbA1c <7% [ Time Frame: 24 Weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The incidence of HbA1c (the concentration of glucose bound to hemoglobin as a percent of the absolute maximum that can be bound) of less than seven percent for target glycemic control during the 24 week study.

  • Change from Baseline in Fasting Plasma Glucose [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The change between the fasting plasma glucose value collected at week 24 relative to baseline.

  • Change from Baseline in 2-hour Postprandial Glucose (PPG) following a Meal Tolerance Test (MTT) [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The change between the value of glucose after a meal, measured by the meal tolerance test collected at week 24 relative to baseline. Meal tolerance test measures blood glucose through blood samples drawn before a meal and 3 hours after the start of the meal.

Detailed Description:

TAK-875 is being developed at Takeda Global Research and Development, Inc. as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in patients with T2DM.

This study will investigate TAK-875 in participants with type 2 diabetes mellitus who have been treated with only diet and exercise for at least 12 weeks prior to Screening, who have taken ≤7 days of any antidiabetic agent within the 12 weeks prior to Screening, and whose glycemic control is inadequate.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. In the opinion of the investigator, the participant is capable of understanding and complying with protocol requirements.

  3. The participant is male or female and 18 years of age or older with a historical diagnosis of T2DM.
  4. The participant has been treated with only diet and exercise for at least 12 weeks prior to Screening and has an HbA1c concentration between 7.0 % and 10.5%, inclusive, at Screening.
  5. The participant has received ≤7 days of any antidiabetic agent within 12 weeks prior to Screening.
  6. The participant has a body mass index (BMI) ≤45 kg/m2 at Screening.
  7. Participants regularly using other, non-excluded medications must be on a stable dose for at least 4 weeks prior to Screening. However, as needed (PRN) use of prescription or over-the-counter medication is allowed at the discretion of the investigator.
  8. The participant is able and willing to monitor glucose with a home glucose monitor and consistently record his or her own blood glucose concentrations and complete participant diaries.
  9. A female participant of childbearing potential who is sexually active with a nonsterilized male partner agrees to use routinely adequate contraception from signing of the informed consent throughout the duration of the study and for 30 days after the last dose of study drug.

Additional Inclusion Criteria prior to Randomization

  1. The participant has an HbA1c concentration between 7.0 and 10.5%, inclusive, and a FPG ≤270 mg/dL (≤15.0 mmol/L) at Week -1 Visit. (If the participant does not qualify for randomization based on these criteria, the assessments may be repeated weekly, for a maximum of 2 additional weeks).
  2. The participant's overall compliance with single-blind study medication during the Placebo Run-in Period is at least 75% and does not exceed 125% based on tablet counts performed by the study staff.
  3. A female participant of childbearing potential must have a negative urine hCG pregnancy test at Baseline (Visit 4) prior to Randomization and prior to administration of the first dose of double-blind study medication

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. The participant has received any investigational compound within 30 days prior to Screening or has received an investigational antidiabetic drug within 3 months prior to Screening.
