Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: 1
Sitagliptin anhydrous formulation
Drug: Sitagliptin phosphate anhydrous formulation
Single dose sitagliptin 100 mg tablets (anhydrous form) in one of two treatment periods.

Active Comparator: 2
Sitagliptin monohydrate FMI formulation
Drug: Comparator: sitagliptin phosphate monohydrate form
Single dose sitagliptin 100 mg tablets [monohydrate Final Market Image (FMI) form] in one of two treatment periods.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area Under the Curve (AUC(0 to Infinity)) Following Single Dose Administration of the Anhydrous and Monohydrate Forms of MK0431 (Sitagliptin) [ Time Frame: Through 72 Hours Following the Administration of the Medication ]
    Area Under the Plasma Concentration-Time Curve and peak concentration of the Anhydrous and Monohydrate Forms of MK0431 (Sitagliptin)

  2. Peak Plasma Concentration (Cmax) Following Single Dose Administration of the Anhydrous and Monohydrate Forms of MK0431 (Sitagliptin) [ Time Frame: Through 72 Hours Following the Administration of the Medication ]
    Peak Plasma concentration (Cmax) for the Anhydrous and Monohydrate Forms of MK0431 (Sitagliptin)
