  Purpose

The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn whether Saxagliptin can improve the body's ability to make its own insulin and lower blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes


Condition Intervention Phase
Type 2 Diabetes
Drug: Saxagliptin
Drug: Placebo
Drug: Metformin (blinded)
Drug: Metformin (open-label)
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Pharmacodynamics Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Mechanism of Action and Efficacy of Saxagliptin (BMS-477118) in the Treatment of Type 2 Diabetic Patients

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Insulin Secretion Rate Area Under the Curve (AUC) During Intravenous (IV)-Oral Hyperglycemic Clamp - Percent Change From Baseline at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Adjusted percent change in the insulin secretion rate AUC during a hyperglycemic clamp with an enteral glucose load [intravenous-oral hyperglycemic clamp (180-480 minutes)] at Week 12. The method used for calculating the insulin secretion rate was C-peptide deconvolution.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Insulin Secretion Rate AUC During IV Hyperglycemic Clamp - Percent Change From Baseline at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Adjusted percent change in the insulin secretion rate AUC during an intravenous hyperglycemic clamp (120-180 minutes) at Week 12. The method used for calculating the insulin secretion rate was C-peptide deconvolution.

Drug: Saxagliptin
Tablet, Oral, 5 mg, Once daily, (up to 12 weeks ST, up to 104 weeks LT)
Other Name: BMS-477118
Placebo Comparator: Placebo (ST) / Metformin (LT) (B)
Metformin 500-1500 mg (open-label, as needed for rescue in LT)
Drug: Placebo
Tablet, Oral, 0 mg, Once daily (up to 12 weeks ST)
Drug: Metformin (blinded)
Tablet, Oral, 500 mg titrated to 1000 mg, Once daily (up to 104 weeks LT, starting at Week 12)

Detailed Description:

All subjects will participate in a lead-in period, and qualifying subjects will continue into a short-term randomized treatment period. Subjects who complete the short-term period will be eligible to enter the long term extension period. Also, subjects who have an elevated blood sugar that requires additional medication for blood sugar control will be eligible to receive open-label metformin added onto their blinded study medication
