NEW YORK, Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Clinilabs, a contract research organization that provides early-stage and specialty clinical drug development services to industry, announced today that they have begun a Phase I clinical research study of an investigational medication for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. The study is being conducted to assess the safety and tolerability of multiple daily doses of the investigational medication over periods of up to 28 days.
Diabetes has become one of the most prevalent diseases in the United States, with approximately 2 million people diagnosed each year. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that roughly 35% of the population over the age of 20 is pre-diabetic. For those over the age of 65, this number increases to 50%. Clinilabs understands the growing need for treatment options in this field and is dedicated to helping sufferers combat the disease. In response to the study award, Lead Recruiter Carrie Sorkin states: "Patients understand that clinical trials are a great way to find alternative treatment options for diabetes. At Clinilabs, we have seen this first-hand through the great success we have had in our recruitment efforts."
Clinilabs is currently enrolling male and female volunteers, between the ages of 18 and 70, who have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Any female patients interested in volunteering for this study must not be of childbearing potential. Patients must be on a stable treatment regimen for at least 4 weeks prior to screening and must have a body weight of above 45.0 kg.
