Condition(s) targeted: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Intervention: MK-0893 10 mg (Drug); MK-0893 40 mg (Drug); MK-0893 200 mg (Drug); MK-0893 1000 mg (Drug); Placebo (Drug); Sandostatine® (Biological); Insulin (Biological); Glucagon (Biological)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Medical Director, Study Director, Affiliation: Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.


This is a study to assess the pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of sequential single oral doses of MK-8093 10 mg, 40 mg, 200 mg, or placebo to MK-8093 (Part 1) depending on treatment assignment in young healthy male participants. In Part 2 of this study, sequential single oral doses of MK-8093 200 mg, 1000 mg or placebo to MK-8093 depending on treatment assignment will be evaluated. The primary hypothesis of the study is that at least one dose of MK-0893 will produce greater reduction of glucagon-induced glycemia as compared to placebo following the infusion of glucagon, Sandostatine®, and basal insulin.
