The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of two dosage levels (10mg and 20mg) of TZP-102 compared to placebo (capsule that looks like the study drug but contains no active drug), administered once-daily for 12 weeks, in diabetic subjects with symptoms associated with gastroparesis.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Detailed Description:

Considered subjects will be screened to determine eligibility for entry into the study. The Screening Visit must take place at least 14 days, but not more than 21 days, before the planned date of study entry (randomization and administration of the first dose of study drug on Study Day 1). The baseline evaluation of gastric emptying must be scheduled at least 7 days (in the U.S.) and 10 days (in Europe) before the Day 1 Visit. Subjects will answer questions relating to their gastroparesis symptoms in an electronic diary (like a palm pilot) beginning on the first day of the screening period.

Eligible subjects will be randomized to receive placebo or one of two dosages of TZP-102 (10mg or 20mg) once daily for 12 weeks. After randomization and administration of the first dose of study drug on Study Day 1 (the Study Entry Visit), subsequent visits to the clinic will be scheduled every two weeks during the 12-week Treatment period and 4-week Follow-Up Period.

All visits will be conducted on an outpatient basis. Visits for a given subject throughout the study should be scheduled to start at approximately the same time, in the morning. Subjects will be instructed to take their daily dose of study drug each morning (when not attending a study visit), at least 30 minutes before breakfast. Subjects will be instructed to not take study drug on the morning of each treatment period visit and to bring study drug supplies with them to the clinic; study drug will be administered in the clinic after all scheduled assessments/procedures (after all pre-dose assessments at each of the Day 1 and Week 12 Visits) are completed.
