Study Description
Brief Summary:
This study will assess the pharmacokinetics of two formulations of MK-1006. The primary hypothesis of this study is that the MK-1006 area under the curve (0 to infinity) and maximum concentration after administration of a single 80 mg dose of the dry filled capsule (DFC) and film coated tablet (FCT) formulations of MK-1006 will be similar.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Drug: MK-1006 DFC Drug: MK-1006 FCT Phase 1

Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: MK-1006 80 mg DFC
Participants received a single dose of four 20 mg dry filled capsules of MK-1006
Drug: MK-1006 DFC
Each dry filled capsule contains 20 mg MK-1006
Experimental: MK-1006 80 mg FCT
Participants received a single dose of two 40 mg film coated tablets of MK-1006
Drug: MK-1006 FCT
Each film coated tablet contains 40 mg of MK-1006

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area Under the Concentration Versus Time Curve (AUC(0-infinity)) for MK-1006 [ Time Frame: Pre-dose, 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48, 72, 96 and 120 hours post-dose ]
    AUC (0-infinity) is the area under the curve for the plot showing plasma concentration against time from time zero to the time of the last quantifiable concentration for two formulations of MK-1006, FCT and DFC

  2. Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) for MK-1006 [ Time Frame: Pre-dose, 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48, 72, 96 and 120 hours post-dose ]
    Maximum plasma concentration for 2 formulations of MK-1006, FCT and DFC

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants Who Experienced at Least One Adverse Event [ Time Frame: Through 30 days post-dose ]
  2. Number of Participants Who Discontinued Study Medication Due to an Adverse Event [ Time Frame: up to 8 days ]
