Brief Summary:

Purpose This study will examine the effect of the addition of Cycloset upon glucose metabolism (glycemic control including post prandial glucose metabolism) in individuals with inadequately controlled (HbA1c 7.5-10.0) type 2 diabetes (T2DM) who are already on Bydureon (exenatide once weekly) or Victoza (liraglutide once daily) as part of their standard care.

Both a mechanistic rationale and empirical experimental evidence implicate a beneficial interaction between bromocriptine and the incretin mimetics (GLP-1 analogs) upon postprandial hyperglycemia in insulin resistant states. One of the actions of the incretin mimetics such as the GLP-1 analogs is to stimulate postprandial beta cell insulin secretory response to plasma glucose (see drug labeling information; www.fda.gov). Thus the combination of Cycloset that is working as a post prandial insulin sensitizier with therapies that increase post prandial insulin would be expected to provide complimentary glucose lowering effects. To date, however, no such studies investigating the interactive effects of a GLP-1 analog and Bromocriptine-QR (QR=extended release) (Cycloset) have been conducted in humans.

Condition - Type 2 Diabetes. Intervention - Cycloset. Phase - Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional Study Design: Treatment, Single Group Assignment, Open Label, N/A, Safety/Efficacy Study

Official Title: Effect of Cycloset on Glycemic Control in Type 2 Diabetic Patients Inadequately Controlled on GLP-1 Analogue Therapy


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Drug: Cycloset Phase 4

Detailed Description:

This is a single-site, prospective, cohort study that will assess the effect of Cycloset as add-on therapy in adult subjects with T2DM that is inadequately controlled (HbA1c 7.5% to 10.0%) on GLP-1 analog therapy with either exenatide (Bydureon) once weekly or liraglutide (Victoza) once daily.

Entry criteria will be checked at the screening visit. All qualified subjects will undergo baseline studies including non-invasive hemodynamic testing for assessment of aortic stiffness and pulse wave velocity, assessment of body weight composition by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), assessment of endothelial function using the Endo-PAT device, measurement of cytokines and inflammatory biomarkers in the peripheral blood and urine, assessment of oxidative stress and inflammatory markers in white blood cells isolated from a peripheral whole blood sample, a 5-hour mixed meal tolerance test (MMT) for assessment of postprandial glucose metabolism and 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring.

Following completion of all the baseline studies as above, subjects will be started on Cycloset, 0.8 mg/day in addition to their stable dose of Bydureon (exenatide) (2mg/week) or Victoza (liraglutide) (1.2-1.8 mg/day), and the dose will be increased by 0.8 mg/day every week to a maximum of 3.2 mg/day, or as tolerated to a minimum of 2.4 mg/day.

Subjects will return at months 1, 2, 3, and 4 for interim medical history, body weight, HbA1c, and FPG (Fasting plasma glucose). Postural blood pressure measurements will be obtained with the subject lying down and then after standing for 5 minutes at each of the visits. At month 4, all of the baseline studies detailed above will be repeated.

All tests will be performed in the Clinical Research Center at the Texas Diabetes Institute/University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio.

Other Name: Bromocriptine Mesylate Quick Release




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. HbA1C [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to four to five months ]

    The objective of this study is to examine the effect of the addition of Cycloset on glycemic control in inadequately controlled (HbA1c 7.5-10.0) T2DM (type 2 diabetes mellitus) patients who are already on Bydureon (exenatide once weekly) or Victoza (liraglutide ) as part of their standard care.

    An additional co-primary objective of the study is to examine the effect of Cycloset on postprandial glucose metabolism.


  2. Glucose Metabolism During Mixed Meal Tolerance Test [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to four to five months ]
    The objective of this study is to examine the effect of the addition of Cycloset on glycemic control in inadequately controlled (HbA1c 7.5-10.0) T2DM patients who are already on Bydureon (exenatide once weekly) or Victoza (liraglutide ) as part of their standard care.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Endothelial Function, [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to four to five months ]
    To assess the potential beneficial effect of Cycloset on endothelial function. This is measured by using pulse pressure.

  2. Body Composition [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to four to five months ]
    To assess the potential beneficial effect of Cycloset on body weight composition.

  3. Percentage Body Fat [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to four to five months ]
    To assess the potential beneficial effect of Cycloset on body fat content

  4. Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to four to five months ]
    To assess the potential beneficial effect of Cycloset on blood pressure.

  5. Mean Arterial Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to four to five months ]
    To assess the potential beneficial effect of Cycloset on change in mean arterial blood pressure

  6. Arterial Stiffness (AS) [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to four to five months ]
    To assess the potential beneficial effect of Cycloset on arterial stiffness. Arterial stiffness is calculated by the measurement of pulse pressure, where Pulse pressure = SBP - DBP (Where SBP is systolic blood pressure and DBP is diastolic blood pressure) The calculated value is used as a predictor of cardiovascular disease. Higher values indicate that cardiovascular disease is more likely.
