|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Type 2 Diabetes||Drug: Oral insulin Drug: regular human insulin||Phase 1|
This study was a single centre, randomized, 3-period crossover study performed in patients with type 2 diabetes. Patients received single doses of an oral insulin formulation and subcutaneous regular human insulin on separate visits.
The primary objective of this study was to compare the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of an oral insulin formulation with that of 15 U subcutaneous injected regular human insulin.
Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters including bioavailability and bioefficacy were measured during 6-hour glucose clamp experiments.
Study duration: 2 months
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||10 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Crossover Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||A Comparison of the Pharmacodynamic and Pharmacokinetic Properties of Oral Insulin vs. s.c. Regular Insulin in Type 2 Diabetic Patients|
|Study Start Date :||October 2001|
