Comparison of TAK-875 With Sitagliptin When Used in Combination With Metformin in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes
A Phase 3, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Active-Controlled, 24-Week Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Daily Oral TAK-875 50 mg Compared With Sitagliptin 100 mg When Used in Combination With Metformin in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of TAK-875 plus metformin compared with sitagliptin plus metformin on glycemic control over a 24-week Treatment Period.

The drug being tested in this study is called TAK-875. TAK-875 is being tested to treat people who have diabetes. This study will look at glycemic control in people who take TAK-875 in addition to metformin.

The study will enroll approximately 620 patients. Participants will be randomly assigned (by chance, like flipping a coin) to one of the two treatment groups—which will remain undisclosed to the patient and study doctor during the study (unless there is an urgent medical need):

  • TAK-875 50 mg
  • Sitagliptin 100 mg

All participants will be asked to take one tablet at the same time each day throughout the study. All participants will be asked to self-monitor their blood glucose levels and document any increases in blood glucose or symptoms of hypoglycemia in a diary.

This multi-center trial will be conducted in the United States, Latin America, Europe and Asia. The overall time to participate in this study is up to 42 weeks and participants will make up to 15 visits to the clinic.

Due to potential concerns about liver safety, on balance, the benefits of treating patients with fasiglifam (TAK-875) do not outweigh the potential risks.

For this reason, Takeda has decided voluntarily to terminate the development activities for fasiglifam.

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. In the opinion of the investigator, is capable of understanding and complying with protocol requirements.
  2. The participant or, when applicable, the participant's legally acceptable representative signs and dates a written, informed consent form and any required privacy authorization prior to the initiation of any study procedures.
  3. Is male or female and 18 years of age or older with a historical diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).
  4. Meets one of the following criteria:.

    1. Has an HbA1c ≥8% and <10.5%, and has been on a stable daily dose of ≥1500 mg (or documented maximum tolerated dose (MTD)) of metformin for at least 8 weeks prior to Screening. This participant will immediately enter the Placebo Run-in Period according to Study Schedule A, or;
    2. Has an HbA1c ≥8% and <10.5%, and has been on a stable daily dose of <1500 mg of metformin without documented MTD for at least 8 weeks prior to Screening. After completing the Screening Visit, these participants will have their metformin dose immediately increased to ≥1500 mg (or MTD) for an 8- to 12-week Titration/Stabilization Period according to Study Schedule B. Following stable administration of metformin ≥1500 mg (or MTD) for 8 weeks, the participant must qualify for entry into the Placebo Run-in Period by completing the Week -3 procedures and have an HbA1c ≥8% and <10.5%.
  5. Has had no treatment with anti-diabetic agents other than metformin within 8 weeks prior to Screening (Exception: if a participant has received other anti-diabetic therapy for ≤7 days within the 8 weeks prior to Screening).
  6. Has a body mass index (BMI) ≤45 kg/m^2 at Screening.
  7. Participants regularly using other, non-excluded medications must be on a stable dose and regimen for at least 4 weeks prior to Screening. However, as needed use of prescription or over-the-counter medications is allowed at the discretion of the investigator. Note: Participants who require initiation of a chronically administered medication(s) due to a disease or condition diagnosed at Screening must be rescreened after the new regimen has been stabilized.
  8. A female participant of childbearing potential who is sexually active with a non-sterilized male partner agrees to routinely use 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.
