The primary objective of the current study is to investigate the safety and tolerability of BI 44847 in male and female patients with type 2 diabetes following oral administration of repeated doses of 100 mg b.i.d, 400 mg b.i.d. and 800 mg b.i.d. over 28 days.

A secondary objective is the exploration of the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of BI 44847 after multiple dosing, including assessment of steady state.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Treatment with insulin, glitazones, or more than one oral hypoglycaemic agent (except if 2 agents and at least one of them not taken at more than 50% of maximum dose);
  • Fasted blood glucose > 240 mg/dl on two consecutive days during wash-out; HbA1c > 8.5 % at screening;
  • Clinically relevant concomitant diseases other than type 2 diabetes, hyperlipidaemia and medically treated hypertension;
  • History of relevant allergy/hypersensitivity;
  • Marked baseline prolongation of QT/QTc interval;
  • History of additional risk factors for TdP;
  • Any laboratory value outside the reference range and the clinical relevance is not acceptable in the opinion of the investigator, or the value is more than 3 times higher than the upper limit of the reference range;
  • Concomitant medication except for acetylsalicylic acid, statins, antihypertensives (diuretics not allowed), beta-blockers for BPH and occasional use of paracetamol (doses of no more than 1000 mg; no more than 2000 mg per day; no more than 2 days per week);
  • Change of drug dosing of allowed co-medication < the last 6 weeks; Intake of any medication < 5 half-lives of the respective drug prior to first administration of study medication or during the trial, except allowed co-medication;
  • Use of drugs which might reasonably influence the results of the trial or that prolong the QT/QTc interval (based on the knowledge at the time of patient inclusion) < 10 days prior to first administration of study medication or during the trial;
  • Use of grapefruit (or its juice) < 10 days prior to first administration of study medication or during the trial;
  • Participation in another trial with an investigational drug < two months prior to first administration of study medication or during the trial; Smoker;
