Information provided by (Responsible Party):
AstraZeneca
  Purpose
This is a multicenter, randomized, blinded, placebo-controlled, short-term, dose-response study to examine the effects on glucose control of AC2993 as compared to placebo in patients with type 2 diabetes. Patients will be individuals with type 2 diabetes treated with metformin for at least 3 months prior to screening. Patients whose diabetes management consists of diet and exercise will also be eligible for this study.
