Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of ertugliflozin (MK-8835) in pediatric participants with T2DM on metformin with/without insulin. The primary hypothesis of the study is that the addition of ertugliflozin reduces hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) more than the addition of placebo after 24 weeks of treatment.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ertugliflozin 5 mg/5 mg

All participants will initially receive ertugliflozin (ERTU) 5 mg once daily (QD) and placebo to ERTU 15 mg QD for 12 weeks. At the second randomization at Week 12 (WK12), all participants that do not meet the up-titration criteria will remain on ERTU 5 mg and placebo to ERTU 15 mg from WK12 to WK54. Approximately half the participants who meet the up-titration criteria at the second randomization at WK12 will also remain on ERTU 5 mg and placebo to ERTU 15 mg from WK12 to WK54.

Note: For participants not on insulin, the up-titration criterion at the second randomization at WK12 is HbA1C ≥7.0% (53 mmol/mol) and for participants on insulin, a fasting fingerstick glucose (FFSG) of ≥110 mg/dL (6.1 mmol/L) will be required in addition to HbA1C ≥7.0% (53 mmol/mol). Participants will remain on their background metformin with/without insulin treatment throughout the study.

Experimental: Ertugliflozin 5 mg/15 mg

All participants will initially receive ERTU 5 mg QD and placebo to ERTU 15 mg QD for 12 weeks. At the second randomization at WK12, approximately half the participants who meet the up-titration criteria at the second randomization will up-titrate to ERTU 15 mg and placebo to ERTU 5 mg from WK12 to WK54.

Note: For participants not on insulin, the up-titration criterion at the second randomization at WK12 is HbA1C ≥7.0% (53 mmol/mol) and for participants on insulin, a FFSG of ≥110 mg/dL (6.1 mmol/L) will be required in addition to HbA1C ≥7.0% (53 mmol/mol).

Participants in the placebo group with HbA1C ≥7.0% (53 mmol/mol) at WK12 will be mock titrated. Note: The up-titration criteria for participants on insulin will include a FFSG of ≥110 mg/dL (6.1 mmol/L) in addition to HbA1C ≥7.0% (53 mmol/mol) at WK12. Participants will continue to receive placebo to ERTU 5 mg and placebo to ERTU 15 mg QD from WK24 to WK54.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from Baseline in Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) at 24 weeks (pooled ertugliflozin 5 mg and 15 mg versus placebo) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 24 weeks ]
    Hemoglobin A1C is a measure of the percentage of glycated HbA1C in the blood. Participant whole blood samples are collected at baseline and Week 24 to determine the least squares mean HbA1C change from baseline (i.e., HbA1C at Week 24 minus HbA1C at baseline).

  2. Number of Participants Who Experience an Adverse Event (AE) [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks ]
    An adverse event is defined as any unfavourable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product or protocol specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening (i.e., any clinically significant adverse change in frequency and/or intensity) of a preexisting condition that is temporally associated with the use of the Sponsor's product, is also an adverse event.

  3. Number of Participants Who Experience an AE [ Time Frame: Up to 54 weeks ]
    An adverse event is defined as any unfavourable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product or protocol specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening (i.e., any clinically significant adverse change in frequency and/or intensity) of a preexisting condition that is temporally associated with the use of the Sponsor's product, is also an adverse event.

  4. Number of Participants Who Discontinue Study Treatment Due to an AE [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks ]
    An adverse event is defined as any unfavourable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product or protocol specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening (i.e., any clinically significant adverse change in frequency and/or intensity) of a preexisting condition that is temporally associated with the use of the Sponsor's product, is also an adverse event.

  5. Number of Participants Who Discontinue Study Treatment Due to an AE [ Time Frame: Up to 54 weeks ]
    An adverse event is defined as any unfavourable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product or protocol specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening (i.e., any clinically significant adverse change in frequency and/or intensity) of a preexisting condition that is temporally associated with the use of the Sponsor's product, is also an adverse event.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from Baseline in Hemoglobin A1C at Week 24 (dose-optimized ertugliflozin versus placebo) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 24 weeks ]
    Hemoglobin A1C is a measure of the percentage of glycated HbA1C in the blood. Participant whole blood samples are collected at baseline and Week 24 to determine the least squares mean HbA1C change from baseline (i.e., HbA1C at Week 24 minus HbA1C at baseline).

  2. Change from Baseline in Hemoglobin A1C at Week 24 (ertugliflozin 5 mg versus placebo) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 24 weeks ]
    Hemoglobin A1C is a measure of the percentage of glycated HbA1C in the blood. Participant whole blood samples are collected at baseline and Week 24 to determine the least squares mean HbA1C change from baseline (i.e., HbA1C at Week 24 minus HbA1C at baseline).

  3. Change from Baseline in Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) at 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline and 24 weeks ]
    Blood glucose is measured on a fasting basis. FPG is expressed as mg/dL. Blood is drawn at predose on Day 1 and after 24 weeks of treatment to determine change in plasma glucose levels (i.e., FPG at Week 24 minus FPG at baseline).

  4. Change from Baseline in Hemoglobin A1C at 54 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline and 54 weeks ]
    Hemoglobin A1C is a measure of the percentage of glycated HbA1C in the blood. Participant whole blood samples are collected at baseline and Week 54 to determine the least squares mean HbA1C change from baseline (i.e., HbA1C at Week 54 minus HbA1C at baseline).

  5. Change from Baseline in FPG at 54 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline and 54 weeks ]
    Blood glucose is measured on a fasting basis. FPG is expressed as mg/dL. Blood is drawn at predose on Day 1 and after 54 weeks of treatment to determine change in plasma glucose levels (i.e., FPG at Week 54 minus FPG at baseline).
