Opportunities for people with type 2 diabetes
1) This four year study compares the effects of three diabetes medications, already FDA approved and available for use, on improving and maintaining blood glucose control in persons with type 2 diabetes. Potential candidates must: be 30-75 years old; have had type 2 diabetes for less than two years; be currently treated with diet and exercise; not be taking any oral diabetes mediations or insulin; have a usual fasting blood glucose of 126-240 mg/dL; and have no known heart, liver or kidney disease.
2) A six month study is being conducted to evaluate and compare the effects on blood glucose when taking a combination tablet of two drugs in one pill, as opposed to taking two separate oral medications. Potential candidates must: be between 20 – 78 years old; have type 2 diabetes; be currently treated with the oral medication metformin (also known as Glucophage); not be taking insulin; have no known active liver or kidney disease; and not be pregnant or breastfeeding.
3) This six month research study compares the effects of two diabetes medications on improving and maintaining cholesterol, triglyceride, and blood glucose levels in persons with type 2 diabetes. Potential candidates must: be 35 years of age or older; have type 2 diabetes; be currently treated with diet and exercise or oral diabetes medication; not be taking insulin; and not be taking any medications to lower triglycerides or cholesterol.
This four month study compares the effects of an investigational medication compared to a placebo in treating symptoms of gastroparesis. Potential candidates must be at least 18 years old and have experienced at least one of the following symptoms due to gastroparesis for at least three (3) months: early feeling of fullness; persistent feeling of fullness; or abdominal bloating. Volunteers may not have any known kidney or liver disease and may not be pregnant or breastfeeding.
Diabetes Prevention Trial
This study involves screening individuals who are relatives of people with type 1 diabetes. For the screening, a blood test will be done to determine if you qualify to participate in the Diabetes Prevention Trial. This test is free, and all family members, including children, are eligible to be tested.
Community Diabetes Prevention Project
Community Diabetes Prevention Project (CDPP) is the first comprehensive program aimed at preventing the development of type 2 diabetes in those at risk. An ambitious, long-range research project, CDPP identified over 400 people at risk for diabetes and is delivering a program of education and support to help people reduce their risks and avoid diabetes.
This study is now completed. We will soon be releasing the study findings on the prevention of type 2 diabetes. Stay tuned . . .
