Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cmax: Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration Pharmacokinetic Parameter for TAK-875 [ Time Frame: Day 17 and Day 18. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Maximum observed plasma concentration (Cmax) is the peak plasma concentration of a drug after administration, obtained directly from the plasma concentration-time curve.

  • Cmax: Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration Pharmacokinetic Parameter for Glimepiride [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 18. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Maximum observed plasma concentration (Cmax) is the peak plasma concentration of a drug after administration, obtained directly from the plasma concentration-time curve.

  • Tmax: Time to Reach the Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) Pharmacokinetic Parameter for TAK-875 [ Time Frame: Day 17 and Day 18. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to reach the maximum plasma concentration (Cmax), equal to time (hours) to Cmax.

  • Tmax: Time to Reach the Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) Pharmacokinetic Parameter for Glimepiride [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 18. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to reach the maximum plasma concentration (Cmax), equal to time (hours) to Cmax

  • AUC(0-tlqc): Area Under the Plasma Concentration-Time Curve From Time 0 to the Time of the Last Quantifiable Concentration Pharmacokinetic Parameter for Glimepiride [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 18. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (AUC(0-tlqc) is a measure of total plasma exposure to the drug from Time 0 to Time of the Last Quantifiable Concentration (AUC[0-tlqc]).

  • AUC(0-inf): Area Under the Plasma Concentration-time Curve from Time 0 to Infinity Pharmacokinetic Parameter for Glimepiride [ Time Frame: Day 1 and Day 18. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AUC(0-inf) is measure of area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time 0 to infinity after drug administration.

  • AUC(0-24): Area Under the Plasma Concentration-Time Curve From Time 0 to 24 Hours Postdose Pharmacokinetic Parameter for TAK-875 [ Time Frame: Day 17 and Day 18. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    AUC(0-24) is measure of area under the curve over the dosing interval (tau) (AUC(0-tau]), where tau is the length of the dosing interval - 24 hours in this study).

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 participants with T2DM.

This study will determine whether administration of glimepiride alters the pharmacokinetics (PK) of TAK-875, and whether TAK-875 affects the PK of glimepiride.
