Peripheral and Coronary Endothelial Dysfunction In Type 2diabetic Patients- Role of Metformin

This study has been terminated.

Last verified: October 2007
Peripheral and coronary endothelial dysfunction in type 2 diabetic patients may be influenced by therapeutics. Using Radial flow monitoring and myocardial perfusion magnetic resonance imaging, we designed a controlled randomized double blind study to test the hypothesis that endothelial dysfunction will be reversed following 3 months of Metformin administration vs gliclazide. 30 patients will be included.

Condition Intervention Phase
Coronary and Peripheral Endothelial Dysfunction Drug: Metformin Drug: Gliclazide Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double
Official Title: The DIAMET Study: Peripheral and Coronary Endothelial Dysfunction in Type 2diabetic Patients- Evaluation of Reversibility Following 3 Months of Metformin Treatment
