4 Weeks Treatment of Type II Diabetic Patients With BI 44847
Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of 4 Weeks Treatment With Three Selected Oral Doses of BI 44847 as Tablet in Female and Male Patients With Type 2 Diabetes.

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.
