  Purpose
Ertugliflozin (PF-04971729, MK-8835) is under development for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes. The primary purpose of this trial is to evaluate the safety and tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, of multiple oral doses of ertugliflozin.

Healthy Volunteer Drug: Ertugliflozin Drug: Placebo to Ertugliflozin Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Official Title: A Phase 1, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel Group, 14 Day Repeated Dose Escalation Study To Evaluate The Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, And Pharmacodynamics Of PF-04971729 In Otherwise Healthy Overweight And Obese Adult Subjects
