Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of TAK-875 in Asia Pacific adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Drug: TAK-875 Drug: TAK-875 Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

The drug being tested in this study is called TAK-875. TAK-875 is being tested to treat people who have diabetes.

The study will enroll approximately 750 patients. Participants will be randomly assigned (by chance, like flipping a coin) to one of the two treatment groups-which will remain undisclosed to the patient and study doctor during the study (unless there is an urgent medical need):

  • TAK-875 25 mg once daily
  • TAK-875 50 mg once daily
  • Placebo (dummy inactive pill) - this is a tablet that looks like the study drug but has no active ingredient

All participants will be asked to take one tablet at the same time each day throughout the study. All participants will be asked to record any time they have low blood sugar symptoms in a diary.

This multi-centre trial will be conducted the Asia Pacific region. The overall time to participate in this study is 30 weeks. Participants will make 13 visits to the clinic.

Due to potential concerns about liver safety, on balance, the benefits of treating patients with fasiglifam (TAK-875) do not outweigh the potential risks.

For this reason, Takeda has decided voluntarily to terminate the development activities for fasiglifam.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in HbA1c at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
    The change in the value of glycosylated hemoglobin (the concentration of glucose bound to hemoglobin as a percent of the absolute maximum that can be bound) collected at Week 24 relative to baseline.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With HbA1c <7% at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
  2. Change in Fasting Plasma Glucose From Baseline to Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
    The change between the fasting plasma glucose value collected at Week 24 relative to baseline.

  3. Change From Baseline in 2-hour Postprandial Glucose (PPG) Following Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
    The change between the value of glucose after a meal, measured following OGTT collected at Week 24 relative to baseline. Oral glucose tolerance test measures glucose, insulin, and C-peptide through blood samples drawn at 0, 30, 60, 90, and 120 minutes following consumption of a 75 gram (g) glucose beverage.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. In the opinion of the investigator, the patient is capable of understanding and complying with protocol requirements.
  2. The patient or, when applicable, the patient's legally acceptable representative signs and dates a written, informed consent form and any required privacy authorization prior to the initiation of any study procedures.
  3. Male or female, aged at least 18 years or over the legal age of consent in countries where that is greater than 18 years, with a historical diagnosis of T2DM.
  4. Has an HbA1c of 7.0% to 10.0%, inclusive at screening, and has been treated with diet and exercise for at least 3 months.
  5. Has a body mass index (BMI) of ≤45 kg/m^2 at screening.
  6. Patients regularly using, non-excluded medications, must be on a stable dose for at least 4 weeks prior to Screening. However, PRN (as needed) use of prescription or over-the-counter medication is allowed at the discretion of the investigator.
  7. A female of childbearing potential who is sexually active with a nonsterilized male partner agrees to routinely use adequate contraception from signing of the informed consent throughout the duration of the study and for 30 days after the last dose of study drug.
  8. Is able and willing to monitor glucose with a home glucose monitor and consistently record his or her own blood glucose concentrations and complete subject diaries.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Is unable to understand the official language (verbal or written) of the country for which a certified translation of the approved informed consent is available.
  2. Is an immediate family member, study site employee, or is in a dependent relationship with a study site employee who is involved in conduct of this study (eg, spouse, parent, child, or sibling; biological or legally adopted) or may consent under duress.
