Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase 1 Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled, Single Ascending Dose Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Response of PE0139 Injection in Adult Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Vital Signs from baseline (Day 0 Pre-dose) [ Time Frame: Vital signs Day 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 14 and 28 ]
    Safety will be evaluated by analyses of the change from baseline in vital signs.

  • Change in ECGs from baseline (Day -1) [ Time Frame: ECG Days 2 and 28 ]
    Safety will be evaluated by analyses of the change from baseline in 12-lead ECG.

  • Change in Safety Labs from baseline (Pre-dose) [ Time Frame: Safety Labs Days 0, 7 and 28 ]
    Safety will be evaluated by analyses of the safety laboratory parameters.

  • Incidence and severity of immunogenicity [ Time Frame: Immunogenicity Days 0, 7, 14 and 28 ]
    Safety will be evaluated by the incidence and severity of immunogenicity.

  • Incidence and severity of adverse events including hypoglycemia [ Time Frame: As reported between Days -10 to 28 ]
    Safety will be evaluated by the incidence and severity of adverse events including hypoglycemia.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic Profile [ Time Frame: Day 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 ]
    Pharmacokinetic parameters include: Area under the concentration curve from time 0 to infinity (AUC(0-inf)), Area under the concentration curve to the final sample with a concentration greater than or equal to Limit of Quantitation (LOQ) (AUC(0-t)), Time to maximum concentration (Tmax), Maximum serum concentration (Cmax), Elimination rate constant (Lambda-z), Elimination half-life (t1/2), Clearance uncorrected for bioavailability (CL/F), Distribution uncorrected for bioavailability (Vz/F)

  • Pharmacodynamic Response [ Time Frame: FPG Day -10, -4, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 28; 4-pt Glucose and CGM - Day -10 to -7, -6, -5, and -4 to 7 ]
    To assess the pharmacodynamic response (time action profile) of various single doses of PE0139. Assessments include Fasting plasma glucose (FPG), 4-point serial glucose monitoring and glucose assessed by continuous glucose monitoring (CGM).

  • Male and female subjects at least 18 years of age;
  • Male subjects and female subjects of childbearing potential must practice effective contraception during the study and be willing and able to continue contraception for 30 days after their dose of study drug;
  • Body mass index ≤45 kg/m2;
  • Diagnosed with T2DM and who is currently taking a stable daily dose of a basal insulin (Lantus) plus at least one oral antihyperglycemic agent at a stable dose for 3 months prior to screening.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Currently taking or have taken within 3 months prior to screening an approved or investigational GLP-1 analogue/agonist (e.g., Victoza®) or pramlintide;
  • Currently taking or have routinely taken, within 3 months prior to screening , a short-acting insulin;
  • Currently taking or have taken, within 3 months prior to screening, a long acting insulin other than Lantus®;
  • Known allergy to, or serious adverse effect caused by an approved, or investigational insulin product or any of its components;
  • Currently taking any of the following medications: thiazide or furosemide diuretics, beta-blockers, estrogens or other hormonal replacement therapy, or other chronic medications with known adverse effects on glucose tolerance levels unless the subject has been on stable doses of such agents for at least 2 months prior to screening and have no planned changes during the study period;
  • History of recurrent severe hypoglycemia (more than 2 episodes within the last 6 months prior to randomization or hypoglycemic unawareness;
  • Malignant disease defined as 1) any history of malignant melanoma or breast cancer and/or 2) history of other types of cancer within the last 5 years prior to screening;
  • Unstable cardiovascular disease defined as one or more of the following: History of stroke, transient ischemic attack, or myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to screening; History of or currently have New York Heart Association Class III-IV heart failure prior to screening; Uncontrolled/sustained hypertension; History or evidence of long QT syndrome or mean triplicate 12-lead electrocardiogram demonstrating QT interval;
