The study hypothesis is that XOMA 052 is likely to improve glycemic control in subjects with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether XOMA 052 improves glycemic control in subjects on Metformin monotherapy whose diabetes is still not adequately controlled.

Condition Intervention Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Drug: XOMA 052
Drug: Placebo
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized Study of the Safety and Biologic Activity of XOMA 052 in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus on Stable Metformin Monotherapy

Further study details as provided by XOMA (US) LLC:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety assessed by pre- and post-treatment serial measurements of vital signs, clinical laboratory assessments, daily fasting blood glucose measured by the subject using a glucose monitor, and treatment-emergent adverse events. [ Time Frame: Day 0 pre-dose through Day 420 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic assessments of XOMA 052 from serum samples collected at time points specified in the protocol. [ Time Frame: Day 0 pre-dose through Day 420 ]
  • Anti-inflammatory activity measured by hs-CRP and cytokines collected at time points specified in the protocol. [ Time Frame: Day 0 pre-dose through Day 420 ]
  • Anti-diabetic activity measured by HbA1c, FPG, OGTT, C-peptide, and insulin collected at time points specified in the protocol. [ Time Frame: Day 0 pre-dose through Day 420 ]

Enrollment: 76
