Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 24-hr glucose (Calculated plasma glucose AUC0-24, change in fasting plasma glucose) [ Time Frame: Repeated sampling during the 24 hour period on day -1, 4 and 8 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability (Adverse events (AEs) during the study, blood pressure (BP), pulse rate, safety laboratory variables (incl. glucose) and investigator's interpretation of electrocardiogram (ECG) [ Time Frame: Frequent measurements during the study period ]
  2. Pharmacokinetic variables (Area under the plasma conc vs. time curve (AUC0-24), maximum plasma conc (Cmax), time to reach maximum plasma conc(tmax), terminal elimination half-life and apparent oral clearance [ Time Frame: Repeated sampling at pre-specified timepoints on day 4 and 8 ]
  3. Pharmacodynamics (S-Insulin AUC0-24 and C-peptide AUC0-24) [ Time Frame: Repeated sampling during the 24 hour period on day -1, 4 and 8 ]
