This study has been completed.

Eli Lilly and Company Identifier:
First received: December 1, 2010
Last updated: June 9, 2011
Last verified: June 2011

The study drug LY2393910 is being evaluated as a possible treatment for diabetes. The primary purpose of a patient's participation in this study is to help answer the following research question(s), and not to provide treatment for diabetes:

  • The safety of LY2393910 and any side effects that might be associated with it following 2 weeks of doses
  • How long it takes the body to absorb and remove LY2393910 following dosing over 2 weeks
  • How daily dosing of LY2393910 affects blood levels of sugar (glucose), insulin and other naturally occurring substances in your body
  • How daily dosing of LY2393910 affects the cells that produce insulin
  • Any differences in the above between LY2393910 taken as daily doses in the morning or in the evening
