Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of PAZ320 in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes (PAZ320)

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: NCT02060916
Recruitment Status : Completed

Brief Summary:
This study is to evaluate the effect that PAZ320 has on post-prandial glucose excursions measured via continuous glucose monitoring and its adverse effect profile in humans.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Treated With Insulin Drug: PAZ320 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
In this study, the investigators seek to evaluate the effect that PAZ320 has on post-prandial glucose excursions measured via continuous glucose monitoring and its adverse effect profile in humans. Continuous glucose monitors (CGM) are minimally invasive devices that measure glucose levels in interstitial fluid. A small wire is inserted subcutaneously which transmits the ambient subcutaneous glucose concentration every 5 minutes to a wireless recorder. In usual use, the patient can see these data and graph the previous 1, 3 or 9 hours to identify trends or look back over time (ie over night). In our study, the patient will be blinded to the data so as not to confound results, as it has been noted in another study that patient's blood sugar control was better when they were able to see CGM results and modified their diet. CGM's have been shown to have clinical accuracies of 95.5-98.9% and have been used in clinical trials and found to be safe. Having the patient do a finger-stick glucose intermittently during the time they are wearing the CGM improves accuracy.
