The aim of this study is to verify whether a significant decrease in glucose levels can be achieved with the HM74A agonist GSK256073 in type 2 diabetic patients. Several dose levels and a placebo will be evaluated in a three period crossover study with two active doses and one placebo dose per subject, in order to determine whether there is a dose that produces glucose lowering in the target population. In addition, this study will investigate the optimal dosing regimen for full manifestation of any metabolic effect of GSK256073 by comparing once a day versus twice a day regimens.

Detailed Description:
This is a multi-center study that will enroll approximately 36 subjects. The study consists of three periods of two days of dosing each. The study will evaluate 5 potential dose regimens. Each subject will receive a randomized sequence of treatments over three periods, with placebo treatment in one period and two different active dose regimens in the other two periods. There will be 5 to 12 days of outpatient washout between treatment periods. Subjects will continue their current treatment on metformin throughout the study. Subjects will monitor blood glucose levels daily via glucometer during oupatient washout periods. A follow-up visit will occur between 5 and 10 days after the last period of the study.

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with documented (not less than 6 months prior to screening) type 2 diabetes mellitus diagnosis with:
  • HbA1c levels greater than 6.5 percent and less than or equal to 9.5 percent at screening,
  • On monotherapy with metformin at the time of screening, and at a todal daily dose greater than or equal to 1000 mg at the time of dosing,
  • Fasting plasma glucose level less than 270 mg/dl at screening
  • Male or female between 20 and 70 years of age inclusive, at the time of signing the informed consent
