Research Study Summary

Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study for the treatment of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

Research Study Title

A Single Ascending Dose Clinical Trial to Study the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of MK-1092 in Healthy Subjects and in Subjects With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus


This is an active- and placebo-controlled, single-site, three-part trial of MK-1092 in healthy adult participants and in participants with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). The primary hypothesis for this study is that at a dose with sufficient safety, the mean maximal glucose infusion rate (GIRmax) after single subcutaneous (SC) administration of MK-1092 in adult participants with T1DM is within an acceptable range.

  • Has uncorrected hypokalemia

  • Has uncorrected hypomagnesemia

  • Is taking concomitant medications that prolong the QT/QTc interval.

  • Is unable to refrain from or anticipates the use of any medication, including prescription and non-prescription drugs or herbal remedies beginning approximately 2 weeks prior to administration of the initial dose of trial drug, throughout the trial, until the posttrial visit.
