Does type 2 diabetes run in your family? Then sit up and take notice


Brief description of study

Does type 2 diabetes run in your family? Then sit up and take notice

Detailed Study Description

If your child has type 2 diabetes that is difficult to control or if type 2 diabetes runs in your family, you may want to learn more about the SITup research studies.

What is the purpose of the SITup studies?

The purpose of the SITup studies is to find out whether an investigational medication, called sitagliptin, can safely and effectively help control blood sugar levels in children and adolescents.

There are two kinds of studies in the SITup program:

  • One kind is for children and adolescents who have not taken oral diabetes medication or insulin in the past 12 weeks
  • One kind is for children and adolescents currently taking metformin therapy but whose diabetes is still not under control

What is the investigational medication?

Sitagliptin is approved by regulatory agencies around the world to treat type 2 diabetes in adults. It is considered investigational in this study because it has not been previously studied in children and adolescents.
