Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open-Label, Randomized, Partially Fixed-Sequence, 4-Period Crossover Study to Assess the Pharmacokinetics After Administration of the DFC and OCT Formulations and the Food Effect on the OCT Formulation of MK-0941 in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes
