The primary purpose of this Study is to help answer the following research question(s).

  • How does LY2189265 affect gastric emptying (the speed at which food and drink leaves the stomach) in patients with Type 2 diabetes?
  • How does LY2189265 affect how the body handles metformin (a drug used to treat Type 2 diabetes)?
  • Is LY2189265 safe and are any side effects associated with it?

  • Metformin pharmacokinetics, time to maximum concentration (tmax) [ Time Frame: Days 3, 17 and 31 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of participants with clinically significant effects [ Time Frame: over 5 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: September 2010
Study Completion Date: July 2011
Primary Completion Date: July 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: Placebo

The study will be patient-blind in Week 1, and patient- and investigator-blind from Week 2 through Week 5. Each patient will receive placebo on Week 1 and once-weekly doses of LY2189265 or placebo on Weeks 2 to 5.

Placebo will be administered by single subcutaneous injection into the skin of the abdominal wall.

Drug: Placebo
Administered subcutaneously
Experimental: LY2189265

The study will be patient-blind in Week 1, and patient- and investigator-blind from Week 2 through Week 5. Each patient will receive placebo on Week 1 and once-weekly doses of LY2189265 or placebo on Weeks 2 to 5.

1.5 mg LY2189265 will be administered by single subcutaneous injection into the skin of the abdominal wall.

Biological: LY2189265

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 75 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Are males or females, diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus for greater than or equal to 3 months prior to screening.
  2. Male patients agree to use a reliable method of birth control during the study and for 3 months following the last dose of study drug. Female patients must be of non-child-bearing potential due to surgical sterilization or menopause.
  3. Have a BMI between 18.5 and 40.0 kg/m2, inclusive.
  4. Have Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus controlled with diet and exercise alone or are stable on a single oral antidiabetic medication (e.g. metformin) prior to screening, and have been taking a stable dose for >7 days prior to the first dosing occasion.
  5. Have a fasting blood glucose value at screening >126 mg/dL (7.0 mmol/L) for patients on a controlled diet, and >108 mg/dL (6.0 mmol/L) for patients on oral antidiabetic medication, with an upper limit of 180 mg/dL (approximately 9.9 mmol/L) in each case.
  6. Have an HbA1c (indicates what your average blood glucose level has been in the past 3 months) value at screening (or within 4 weeks prior to screening) of 6.5% to 9.5%. If HbA1c is between 6.1% and 6.5%, patients may participate in the study providing they are receiving permissible oral antidiabetic medication.
  7. Have clinical laboratory test results within normal ranges as determined by the study doctor.
  8. Can provide enough blood in order to undergo the blood sampling required for the study.
  9. Are reliable and willing to make themselves available for the duration of the study and are willing to follow study procedures
  10. Have signed the consent form approved by Lilly and the Ethical Review Board (ERB) governing the site.

    Exclusion Criteria:

  11. Are currently enrolled in, or discontinued within the last 30 days from, a clinical trial involving an investigational drug or device, or are concurrently enrolled in any other type of medical research judged not to be scientifically or medically compatible with this study.
  12. Have previously been exposed to, or have known allergies to GLP-1-related compounds including LY2189265.
  13. Are persons who have previously completed or withdrawn from this study or any other study investigating LY2189265 or have received glucagon-like peptides or incretin mimetics in the past 3 months.
  14. Have taken certain Type 2 Diabetes medications within 30 days prior to screening.
  15. Have an abnormality in the ECG performed at screening
  16. Have poorly controlled high blood pressure (systolic blood pressure >160 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure >100 mmHg)
