Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and Tolerance of multiple intravenous doses of trodusquemine (MSI-1436) in obese or overweight type 2 diabetics. Safety will be evaluated by physical exams, vital signs assessments, 12-lead ECGs, clinical lab tests and adverse event profile. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Effect on glucose tolerance or glucose/insulin relationships [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effect on appetite and food consumption [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effect on behavior and mood [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effect on exploratory biomarkers [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Primary Completion Date: April 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Trodusquemine (MSI-1436) 3mg/m2 Drug: Trodusquemine (MSI-1436)
A single dose of Trodusquemine (MSI-1436) will be administered every 72 hours on Days 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 21. Doses are 3mg/m2 in cohort 1, 6mg/m2 in cohort 2 and 10mg/m2 in cohort 3.
Experimental: Trodusquemine (MSI-1436) 6mg/m2 Drug: Trodusquemine (MSI-1436)
A single dose of Trodusquemine (MSI-1436) will be administered every 72 hours on Days 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 21. Doses are 3mg/m2 in cohort 1, 6mg/m2 in cohort 2 and 10mg/m2 in cohort 3.
Experimental: Trodusquemine (MSI-1436) 10mg/m2 Drug: Trodusquemine (MSI-1436)
A single dose of Trodusquemine (MSI-1436) will be administered every 72 hours on Days 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 21. Doses are 3mg/m2 in cohort 1, 6mg/m2 in cohort 2 and 10mg/m2 in cohort 3.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo Drug: Placebo

Detailed Description:

Different amounts of trodusquemine (MSI-1436) will be given to each volunteer group throughout the study. Another purpose is to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK - the study of the way the drug enters and leaves the blood and tissues over time) of trodusquemine (MSI-1436). Finally, this study will also determine whether trodusquemine (MSI-1436) has any effect on appetite, mood or behavior, and selective biomarkers (substances in your blood that may change in response to the study drug).

  4. of any race who are in good health (based on medical history, physical examination, electrocardiograms [ECGs], and clinical laboratory tests);
  5. non-smokers (refrained from any tobacco or nicotine usage, including smokeless tobacco, nicotine patches, etc.,) for 6 months prior to Day 0 of the study. Subjects must have cotinine levels below those measured for smokers based on reference lab values;
  6. body mass index (BMI) of 27-40 kg/m2;
  7. able to execute informed written consent;
  8. willingness to remain in the clinic for the inpatient portion of the study and return for follow-up visits as required by the protocol and as deemed necessary by the Principal Investigator;

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. likely allergy or sensitivity to any components of Trodusquemine (MSI-1436C) for Injection;
  2. any subject with a history of severe allergy or bronchial asthma;
  3. a clinically significant history of or current abnormality or disease of any organ system, including renal, hepatic, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular (except hyperlipidemia or controlled hypertension), pulmonary (including chronic asthma), endocrine (except diabetes), central nervous, or hematologic systems, or recent clinically significant surgery;
