Overview

Research Study Summary

Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study to evaluate Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus or Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Research Study Title

A Study to Assess the Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamic Effect of MK-5160 in Subjects With Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Purpose

This is a randomized, active- and placebo-controlled, double-blind trial of MK-5160 in participants with Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). This is a two-part trial, with three panels per part. T1DM (Part 1) and T2DM (Part 2) participants will be given daily fixed doses of MK-5160 in three predefined, increasing doses in each panel, or glargine (active comparator). The primary hypothesis of the trial is that at a dose with sufficient safety, the mean steady-state maximum level of glucose infusion rate (GIRmax) after MK-5160 administration in both T1DM and T2DM participants is between 1.5 and 4.5 mg/kg/min.

Eligibility

All ages 18 Years to 65 Years

Inclusion Criteria:

  • For Part 1 (T1DM):

  • Be male, or female of non-childbearing potential. A female of non-childbearing potential defined as a female who is postmenopausal without menses for at least 1 year and has a follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) value in the postmenopausal range upon pretrial (screening) evaluation OR a female who is status post hysterectomy, oophorectomy or tubal ligation.

  • Be judged to be in good health

  • Have a diagnosis of T1DM as defined by standard diagnostic criteria for ≥12 months at time study participation

  • Be on stable doses of basal insulin over the 2-week period prior to screening and over the 2 weeks prior to dosing.

  • Have a total daily insulin requirement (basal plus prandial) of ≤ 1.2 units/kg.

  • Have a hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) ≤10% at the time of study participation.

  • Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) ≥18.5 kg/m^2 and ≤ 32 kg/m^2.

  • Be a non-smoker or smoker who uses no more than 5 cigarettes or equivalent (e.g., ecigarettes) per day over the prior 3 month period also may be enrolled (at the discretion of the investigator). The subject must agree to follow the smoking restrictions defined by the clinical research unit (CRU).

  • For Part 2 (T2DM):

  • Be male, or female of non-childbearing potential. A female of non-childbearing potential defined as a female who is postmenopausal without menses for at least 1 year and has a FSH value in the postmenopausal range upon pretrial (screening) evaluation OR a female who is status post hysterectomy, oophorectomy or tubal ligation.

  • Be judged to be in good health

  • Have a diagnosis of T2DM as defined by standard diagnostic criteria for ≥12 month at time of study participation.

  • T2DM participants are not required to have been on insulin. If on insulin, participants should have a total daily insulin requirement of ≤ 1.2 units/kg, and have been on stable doses of basal insulin over the 2-week period prior to screening and over the 2 weeks prior to dosing.

  • Meet one of the following criteria:

  • Be on no anti-hyperglycemic agent (AHA), or on metformin monotherapy or metformin plus a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP4) inhibitor at stable doses for at least 8 weeks prior to screening, with a screening HbA1C ≥7.0 and ≤10.0%.

  • Be on either a sulfonylurea (e.g. glyburide) or an alpha-glucosidase inhibitors (e.g., acarbose) alone or in combination with metformin at stable doses for at least 8 weeks prior to screening with a screening HbA1C ≥7.0 and ≤9.0%. Participants on these medications must be willing to stop the sulfonylurea or alpha-glucosidase inhibitor after screening once they qualify for study participation.

  • Have a BMI ≥18.5 kg/m2 and ≤ 35.0 kg/m2 BMI = mass (kg)/height (m)^2

  • May be on selected standard medications for T2DM, including alpha-glucosidase inhibitors (e.g., acarbose), sulfonylureas (e.g. glyburide), DPP-4 inhibitors, and metformin. Participants on alpha-glucosidase inhibitors and/or sulfonylureas must stop these medications for at least one week prior to checking into the site and for the duration of the trial through the last dose of MK-5160/glargine. Participants on metformin or DPP-4 inhibitors may continue on their home dose for the duration of the trial. Participants on SGLT2 inhibitors (gliflozins), thiazolidinediones or GLP-1 agonists are excluded.

  • Be a nonsmoker or smoker who uses no greater than 5 cigarettes or equivalent (e.g., e-cigarettes) daily over the prior 3 month period. Participants must agree to follow the smoking restrictions defined by the CRU.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • For Part 1 (T1DM) and Part 2 (T2DM):

Participants who have had situational depression may be enrolled in the trial at the discretion of the investigator.
