Safety and Efficacy of Bexagliflozin as Monotherapy in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

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: NCT02715258
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : March 22, 2016
Last Update Posted : October 9, 2019
Information provided by (Responsible Party):

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of bexagliflozin in lowering hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Drug: Bexagliflozin Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Approximately 210 subjects with inadequately controlled T2DM will be recruited from US and Canada. Subjects will be randomly assigned to receive bexagliflozin tablets, 20 mg, or placebo in a ratio of 2:1 once daily for 24 weeks.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Bexagliflozin tablets, 20 mg
Each subject will receive bexagliflozin 20 mg once daily for the duration of the study.
Drug: Bexagliflozin
20 mg, tablet
Other Name: EGT0001442

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in HbA1c from baseline to week 24 [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in systolic blood pressure from baseline to week 24 [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
  2. Change in body weight from baseline to week 24 [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Change from baseline of fasting plasma glucose from baseline up to 24 weeks [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
  2. Change from baseline of HbA1c from baseline up to 24 weeks [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
  3. Proportion of subjects who achieve an HbA1c < 7% [ Time Frame: Up to 24 weeks ]
  4. Safety of exposure to bexagliflozin for 24 weeks (adverse events) [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    Safety will be assessed based on an analysis of the adverse events record; of laboratory data, including hematology, serum chemistry, urinalysis, urinary electrolytes and creatinine; of electrocardiograms (ECGs), vital signs and physical examinations; and of concomitant medication use. All subjects who are randomized and take at least one dose of double-blind study medication will be included in the Safety Analysis Set. Safety analyses will be based on the medication that was actually dispensed to each subject.

  5. Effect of bexagliflozin on the incidence of adverse events of special interest [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
