An Evaluation of Glycemic Control Effects of Mono Therapy CKD-501 in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT01001611
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : October 26, 2009
Last Update Posted : July 19, 2013

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate and confirm hypoglycemic efficacy and safety of CKD-501 as mono therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes treated once daily for 24 weeks in comparison to placebo.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 Drug: CKD-501 0.5mg Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Diabetes Mellitus is classified into type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes mellitus according to the causes of diabetes onset and the treatment of symptoms.

In type 2 diabetes, the combination of insulin resistance and insulin deficiency is working. Diabetes mellitus causing many complications and hospitalization is one of chronic metabolic disorder and diabetes mortality rate has been gradually increasing percentage.

CKD-501 is highly selective peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma agonist that decreases insulin resistance in the periphery and liver resulting in increased insulin-dependent glucose disposal and decreased hepatic glucose output. In vivo, It demonstrates that CKD-501 improves even more glycemic and lipid control in comparison to rosiglitazone and pioglitazone.

The aim of this phase 3 study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CKD-501 once daily for 24 weeks as a monotherapy in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Furthermore, the extension study for additional 28 weeks is designed to confirm long term safety of CKD-501 as an oral hypoglycemic agent.
