Further study details as provided by Bayer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Difference of postprandial maximum concentration (Cmax) of blood glucose following sucrose load without (Day 1) and with Glucobay (Day 2) [ Time Frame: within 4 hours after sucrose load ]
  • Difference of postprandial Area under curve from 0 to 4 hours (AUC(0-4)) of blood glucose following sucrose load without (Day 1) and with Glucobay (Day 2) [ Time Frame: within 4 hours after sucrose load ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to reach maximum drug concentration in plasma after single dose (tmax) of blood glucose following sucrose load without (Day 1) and with Glucobay (Day 2) [ Time Frame: within 4 hours after sucrose load ]
  • Difference of postprandial Cmax of serum insulin following sucrose load without (Day 1) and with Glucobay (Day 2) [ Time Frame: within 4 hours after sucrose load ]
  • Difference of postprandial AUC(0-4) of serum insulin following sucrose load without (Day 1) and with Glucobay (Day 2) [ Time Frame: within 4 hours after sucrose load ]
  • Tmax of serum insulin following sucrose load without (Day 1) and with Glucobay (Day 2) [ Time Frame: within 4 hours after sucrose load ]

Enrollment: 33
Study Start Date: June 2011

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm 1 Drug: Acarbose (Glucobay ODT, BAYG5421)

Experimental: Arm 2 Drug: Acarbose (Glucobay ODT, BAYG5421)
Day 1: oral sucrose load (75 g sucrose dissolved in 225 mL water) without Glucobay ODT; Day 2: oral sucrose load plus Glucobay ODT taken with water
Active Comparator: Arm 3 Drug: Acarbose (Glucobay, BAYG5421)
Day 1: oral sucrose load (75 g sucrose dissolved in 225 mL water) without Glucobay standard tablet; Day 2: oral sucrose load plus Glucobay standard tablet taken with water
