If you qualify for the study, you will visit a study clinic in your area approximately 35 times over 5 years.
The study will be evaluating the efficacy of an investigational study drug for Type 2 Diabetes with elevated triglycerides.
Volunteers who qualify to take part in the study may receive compensation for time and travel expenses.
You may be able to take part in the Type 2 Diabetes Study if you:
All study-related care will be provided by a team of medical professionals.
It is common for people with Type 2 Diabetes to have high blood pressure and high triglycerides. People with Type 2 Diabetes are twice as likely to be at risk of CVD (cardiovascular disease) when compared to those in the same age group, without T2D.
Because of this, cardiovascular complications like heart attacks and other issues concerning the heart can pose a threat to those who have Type 2 Diabetes with elevated triglycerides, high blood fats or atherosclerosis, (a plaque buildup in the arteries).
The Type 2 Diabetes Study is researching the ability of an investigational medication to find out if it can safely reduce heart attacks and other heart-related issues for those suffering from Type 2 Diabetes.
A Clinical research study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps to answer important questions about an investigational drug or device, such as: Does it work, or how effective is it compared to another drug/device?
If you choose to participate in the Type 2 Diabetes Study, your case will be followed for about 5 years. You will complete approximately 35 study site visits, as well as telephone calls. At these visits you will undergo health assessments such as medical questionnaires and a complete physical examination.
All study-related care is provided at no cost to you. You do not need health insurance to participate.
Volunteers who take part in the study may be eligible to receive compensation for their time and travel.
