NADPH oxidase enzymes (NOX) have been implicated in the development of several diabetic complications including diabetic nephropathy. GKT137831 is the first in class NOX1/4 inhibitor.

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of oral GKT137831 in patients with residual albuminuria despite maximal inhibition of the renin angiotensin aldosterone system.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Albuminuria [ Time Frame: Visits 4 (week -2), 5 (week 0), 6 (week 2), 7 (week 4), 8 (week 6), 9 (week 8), 10 (week 10), 11 (week 12), and 12 (week 16) ]
    Change in UACR from baseline to Visits 9, 10, and 11 (i.e. weeks 8, 10 and 12 of the treatment period, respectively)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Glucose metabolism [ Time Frame: Visits 5 (week 0), 8 (week 6), and 11 (week 12) ]
    Change in HOMA-B, HOMA-IR and HbA1c from baseline

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Erectile dysfunction [ Time Frame: Visits 5 (week 0), 8 (week 6), and 11 (week 12) ]
    Changes in IEFF questionnaire assessing erectile dysfunction in patients presenting with these diabetic complications at baseline

  • Neuropathic pain [ Time Frame: Visits 5 (week 0), 8 (week 6), and 11 (week 12) ]
    Changes in Visual Analog Scale (VAS) assessing neuropathic leg pain in patients presenting with these diabetic complications at baseline

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: October 2013

Detailed Description:
A double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, multicenter, parallel group Phase 2 study assessing a 12-week period of treatment with oral GKT137831 administered in addition to standard of care for patients with type 2 diabetes.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female aged 18 to 80 years
  • History of type 2 diabetes, defined as fasting plasma glucose ≥7.0 mmol/L (126 mg/dL) or a glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) >6.5% (48 mmol/mol) on at least 2 occasions prior to screening.
  • Albuminuria defined as a UACR of 300 to 3500 mg/g.
  • An eGFR ≥30 mL/min/1.73 m2, as calculated by the CKD-EPI formula.
  • Must be taking an ACEI or an ARB for at least 6 weeks prior to the first screening visit (Visit 1) and during the screening period. The dose must have been stable for at least 4 weeks prior to the first screening visit (Visit 1). Combination therapy associating an ACEI and an ARB is not permitted.

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of type 1 diabetes
  • Any other non-diabetic kidney disease(s) except for hypertensive nephropathy which is acceptable.
  • Diagnostic or interventional procedure requiring a contrast agent within 4 weeks of the first screening visit (Visit 1) or planned during the study.
  • History of renal transplant or planned renal transplant during the study.
  • A history of acute renal dialysis or acute kidney injury (defined according to the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes [KDIGO] definition) within 12 weeks of the first screening visit (Visit 1)
  • HbA1c level >11% (97 mmol/mol).
  • History of hypothyroidism requiring hormone replacement therapy.
  • History of active cardiovascular disease
  • A personal or family history of long QT syndrome.
  • Administration of any investigational product within 30 days or within 5 half-lives of the investigational agent
