The purpose of this research study is to determine if a new investigational diabetes drug is safe and effective in treating people who have Type II diabetes mellitus with very high HbA1c or FPG (fasting plasma glucose) levels. The HbA1c test, also called the hemoglobin A1c test or glycated hemoglobin test, is a measurement of the average amount of sugar in the blood over the last 2 to 3 months. FPG is a test that measures the amount of sugar in the blood after an 8 hour fast.
