  Purpose
This study will test the hypothesis that the Final Market Image (FMI) sitagliptin/metformin 50 mg/500 mg and 50 mg/850 mg (Fixed Dose Combination) FDC tablet and co-administration of corresponding doses of sitagliptin and China-sourced metformin as individual tablets will be bioequivalent based on assessment of the AUC(0-t) and Cmax, for both sitagliptin and metformin.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Area Under the Curve (AUC(0-t)) for Sitagliptin [ Time Frame: baseline through 72 hours postdose ]
    AUC (0-t) is the area under the curve for the plot showing plasma concentration against time from time zero to the time of the last quantifiable concentration for sitagliptin 50 mg, metformin 500 mg and metformin 850 mg.

  • Cmax for Sitagliptin and Metformin [ Time Frame: baseline through 72 hours postdose ]
    Cmax is the peak serum concentration of a therapeutic drug after administration; and is used to determine the rate and extent of drug absorption. Cmax is reported for sitagliptin 50 mg, metformin 500 mg and metformin 850 mg.
