Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in 24-hour Weighted Mean Glucose (WMG) at Week 4 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The 24-hour WMG is derived from multiple glucose values collected during both fasting and post-meal periods. A "weighted" rather than a "simple" mean is used to avoid overrepresentation of post-meal glucose values.

    Blood samples for glucose were to be collected immediately prior to (sample -10 minutes), and 0, 15, 30, 60, 90, 120, and 180 minutes after each meal, and overnight (at midnight, 3 AM, and 5 AM) and fasting at 7 AM. Patients were to be domiciled for approximately 26 hours at the site where standard meals were provided and physical activity monitored.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MK8245 5 mg b.i.d.
MK8245
Drug: MK8245 5 mg (twice a day) b.i.d.

All patients will receive placebo capsules 2 weeks prior to treatment period to be taken twice daily.

Patients randomized to the 5 mg b.i.d. treatment group took 2 capsules of MK8245 2.5 mg in the morning and 2 capsules of MK8245 2.5 mg in the evening.

Other Name: MK8245
Experimental: MK8245 50 mg b.i.d.
MK8245
Drug: MK8245 50 mg b.i.d.

All patients will receive placebo capsules 2 weeks prior to treatment period to be taken twice daily.

Patients randomized to the 50 mg b.i.d. treatment group took 2 capsules of MK8245 25 mg in the morning and 2 capsules of MK8245 25 mg in the evening.

Other Name: MK8245
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo
Drug: Placebo

All patients will receive placebo capsules 2 weeks prior to treatment period to be taken twice daily.

Patients randomized to the placebo treatment group took 2 capsules of placebo matching MK8245 capsules in the morning and 2 placebo capsules matching MK8245 capsules in the evening.
