Research Study Summary

Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study evaluating placebo and exenatide for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes

Research Study Title

Safety and Efficacy of Exenatide as Monotherapy and Adjunctive Therapy to Oral Antidiabetic Agents in Adolescents With Type 2 Diabetes.


The primary objective of this study is to test the hypothesis that glycemic control, as measured by change in hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) from baseline to endpoint, with exenatide is superior to that of placebo after 28 weeks of treatment in adolescent patients with type 2 diabetes who are naïve to antidiabetes agents, or patients who are being treated with metformin, an SU, or a combination of metformin and an SU.

The dose of oral agent(s) should be stable for the 30 days prior to the screening visit

  • have fasting C-peptide > 0.6 ng/mL

  • have HbA1c between 6.5% and 10.5%, inclusive.

Disease Diagnostic Criteria-for the purposes of this study, patients with type 2 diabetes are defined by:

  • fasting blood glucose 126 mg/dL (7.0 mmol/L)

  • random blood glucose 200 mg/dL (11.1 mmol/L)

  • two-hour OGTT (Oral Glucose Tolerance Test) ≥ 200 mg/dL (11.1 mmol/L) AND one or more of the following: no antibodies to GAD65 OR no antibodies to islet cell antigen (ICA512).

Exclusion Criteria-patients will be excluded from the study if they meet any of the following criteria:

  • have previously been exposed to exenatide or, completed or withdrawn from this study or any other study investigating exenatide

  • are unwilling or unable to inject the study medication

  • currently use inhaled steroids at a dose equal to or above 1000g Flovent (fluticasone propionate) daily

  • have used oral steroids within the last 60 days or more than 20 days use within the past year

  • have used any weight loss medication(s) within 30 days of screening

  • have used insulin for more than 10 weeks during the 3 months prior to screening

  • have history of renal disease, or serum creatinine > 1.6 mg/dL (141.4 µmol/L) (males) or > 1.4 mg/dL (123.8 µmol/L) (females)

  • have hepatic dysfunction, defined by aspartate (AST) or alanine (ALT) transaminase

3.0 times the upper limit of normal (ULN).
