Brief Summary:
LIM-0705 will gain results on the effects of LIM-0705 on Male Subjects with Impaired Glucose Tolerance

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Impaired Glucose Tolerance Drug: LIM-0705 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 30 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Single-Blind,Randomized,Placebo-Controlled Phase 1 Study to Investigate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, and Exploratory Pharmacodynamics of LIM-0705 in Male Subjects With Impaired Glucose Tolerance
Study Start Date : March 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date : July 2010

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: A
750 mg of LIM-0705 BID for 14 days. Up to 20 subjects.
Drug: LIM-0705
Oral solution 750 mg LIM 0705 BID for 14 days.

Placebo Comparator: B
Placebo BID for 14 days. Up to 10 subjects.
Drug: Placebo
Oral solution placebo BID for 14 days.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To evaluate the effect of LIM-0705 on glucose metabolism, lipid metabolism and renal function in subjects with impaired glucose tolerance [ Time Frame: approx. 1 month ]
    • Assessment of glucose metabolism will be based on monitoring of overnight-fasting glucose levels and on performance of an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT)
    • Assessment of lipid metabolism will be based on 12 hour-fasting lipid profiles (including LDL, HDL, total cholesterol, free fatty acids, and triglycerides)
    • Assessment of renal function will be performed by monitoring serum BUN and creatinine levels

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of treatment emergent adverse events and pharmacokinetics of LIM-0705 and its major metabolite [ Time Frame: approx. 1 month ]
    • To evaluate the incidence of treatment emergent adverse events; as well as changes in physical examination findings, vital signs, ECGs, and clinical laboratory tests (serum chemistry, hematology urinalysis, and coagulation)
    • To characterize the pharmacokinetics of LIM-0705 and its major metabolite
