Study of CRx-401 on Glucose Levels in Subjects With Type II Diabetes
A Randomized, Multi-Center Study to Compare the Effects of CRx-401 to Bezafibrate Plus Placebo on Plasma Glucose Levels When Given to Subjects With Type II Diabetes on Metformin.

This trial will assess the efficacy of CRx-401 in lowering FPG levels in patients taking metformin to treat their diabetes. In addition, this initial trial will evaluate insulin resistance (HOMA-IR index), HgbA1c levels, glycated protein, LDL, HDL, triglycerides, and total cholesterol, as well as the safety of CRx-401.
