Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics Study of EGT0001474 in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes

This study has been completed.

Theracos Identifier:
First received: June 16, 2009
Last updated: March 4, 2015
Last verified: March 2015
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics (how much of the drug gets into the blood and how long it takes the body to get rid of it) of single doses of EGT0001474 given to patients with Type 2 diabetes. The study will also evaluate how EGT0001474 affects the amount of glucose produced by the body in the urine.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)

Official Title: A Phase I, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of EGT0001474 in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes

Further study details as provided by Theracos:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and Tolerability of EGT0001474 [ Time Frame: 25 days ]
    Safety and tolerability were measured in terms of the number of mild, moderate and severe adverse events experienced by any participants.

  • AUC 0-t [ Time Frame: 3 days ]
    Area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time 0 to time t

  • AUC0-24 [ Time Frame: 3 days ]
    Area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time 0 to hour 24

  • AUC Inf [ Time Frame: 3 days ]
    Area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time 0 to infinity

  • Cmax [ Time Frame: 3 days ]
    Maximum plasma concentration

  • Tmax [ Time Frame: 3 days ]
    Time of maximum plasma concentration

  • λz [ Time Frame: 3 days ]
    Terminal phase rate constant

  • t1/2 [ Time Frame: 3 days ]
    Apparent terminal half life

  • CL/F [ Time Frame: 3 days ]
    The apparent rate of oral clearance of EGT0001474.Oral clearance was defined as rate of drug removal from the body after oral administration.

  • Vz/F [ Time Frame: 3 days ]
    Apparent volume of distribution

Detailed Description:
EGT0001474 is a compound that may inhibit the effect of other compounds in the body known as sugar transporters. The use of EGT0001474 may enhance the elimination of glucose from the blood by increasing the amount of urine produced. This would help prevent an abnormal decrease in blood sugar (hypoglycemia) both during fasting and after meals without increasing insulin secretion (which may result in weight gain or an abnormal increase in blood sugar known as Type 2 diabetes).

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Senior)
