  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy on insulin sensitivity of GFT505 at 80mg/d in male patients with insulin resistance and abdominal obesity. Evaluation will be made using a glucose clamp technique.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Glucose Infusion Rate (GIR) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate in each patient the differences in Glucose Infusion Rate (GIR) measured at the end of 8 weeks treatment periods with GFT505 (80 mg/day per os) or placebo according to a cross-over design.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Differences in Hepatic Glucose Production (HGP) in each patient [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate in each patient the differences in Hepatic Glucose Production (HGP) measured at the end of 8 weeks treatment periods with GFT505 (80 mg/day per os) or placebo according to a cross-over design.

  • Changes in GIR (Glucose Infusion Rate) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To compare the changes from baseline to endpoint in Glucose Infusion Rate (GIR). The baseline will be defined as the values of glucose clamp at V2. The same baseline will be used for the 2 periods. End-points will be defined as glucose clamp values at V4 for the first period and as glucose clamp values at V7 for the second period.

  • Changes in HGP (Hepatic Glucose Production) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To compare the changes from baseline to endpoint in Hepatic Glucose Production (HGP). The baseline will be defined as the values of glucose clamp at V2. The same baseline will be used for the 2 periods. End-points will be defined as glucose clamp values at V4 for the first period and as glucose clamp values at V7 for the second period.

Study Start Date: January 2011
Study Completion Date: November 2011
Primary Completion Date: November 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: GFT505 80mg Drug: GFT505 80mg
hard gelatin capsules dosed at 20mg, oral administration, 4 capsules per day before breakfast
Placebo Comparator: Matching placebo Drug: Placebo
hard gelatin capsules, oral administration, 4 capsules per day before breakfast

Detailed Description:

The study period per patient is 26 weeks: a selection period will precede a 8-week treatment period, a 6-week wash out period, a second 8-week treatment period in the second arm of treatment and a 2- week follow-up period.

Schedule:

  • Selection visit prior to treatment period (D-14 and D-1)
  • D0 : randomisation visit
  • Period T1: first period of treatment with GFT505 80mg or placebo for 8 weeks (D1 to D56)
  • Wash out period for 6 weeks (D57 to D98)
  • Period T2: second period of treatment with GFT505 80mg or placebo for 8 weeks (D99 to D154)
  • Follow up period for 2 weeks (D155 to D169)
