RESEARCH PURPOSE: To study the safety, absorption, and elimination of a new investigational delayed release diabetes medication compared to an FDA approved version. Also to determine how the medication affects the body in participants with Type 2 diabetes with normal kidney function and in participants with Type 2 diabetes and low kidney function.
BASIC PARTICIPANT QUALIFICATIONS:
STUDY LENGTH: One initial screening visit to determine eligibility. A baseline overnight stay to confirm eligibility followed by 3 treatment periods each consisting of 4 days, 3 nights inpatient and 2 outpatient visits. Each treatment period is seperated by 2 to 5 days.
COMPENSATION: Up to $2,950

Where hope, science & understanding meet.
From the aspirin on the shelves of your local drugstore, to the insulin prescribed by a doctor, to the pacemaker keeping someone’s heart on track – all have been subject to clinical trials, and integral part of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval process.
A critical step in an important process
Drugs and medical devices undergo years of laboratory testing before they reach the clinical trial phase. Researchers must acquire approval from the FDA for approval to continue research and testing in humans. Clinical trials are essential to measure the efficacy and safety of drugs before they are available for widespread use.
Changing lives, every day.
The impact of clinical trials are seen in our everyday lives, in the confidence with which we can take over-the-counter drugs – or in the life-saving benefits of a breakthrough medication for a victim of Leukemia.
Public Health and Safety
Prior to the development of the FDA’s rigorous and highly regulated method, consumers had to rely upon the anecdotal observation of physicians or spurious claims of pharmacists. In 1906, in order to protect public health and safety, the fledgling FDA passed the first regulatory drug act – the Pure Food and Drug Act.
In 1938, the enactment of the U.S. Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act subjected new drugs to pre-market safety evaluation for the first time, thus enabling FDA regulators to review both pre-clinical and clinical test results, giving them the authority to block the marketing of a new drug formally or delay it by requiring additional data.
Alongside the evolving standards of drug regulations, closer regulation of the clinical trial process. The resulting process today is designed to protect the safety of study participants, promote the development of lifesaving drugs, and keep public health and safety at the center of medical advancement. In the century since the first drug act, the research and medical community in cooperation with the FDA, have developed the foremost institutional authority for conducting and evaluating controlled clinical drug trials.
Doing the right thing
Know that you’ve done your part to help make important medications available to those who need them. If you have a friend or family member who relies on a medication to treat a chronic disease or illness, they have benefited from the work of a clinical trial, and a volunteer like you who gave their time and effort to aid in the approval process.
Fair compensation for your time
You’ll be compensated based on the time you spend as a study participant.
Medical exam & monitoring
As a study participant, you’ll likely receive a full medical examination and testing for a variety of conditions. In some cases volunteers might have access to treatments or medicines before they are available to the general population.
Prism Clinical Research provides, FDA approved, investigational pharmaceutical and medical device testing services on behalf of drug and device manufacturers, academic and private physicians as well as other researchers across Minnesota.
At Prism, we are committed to the advancement of medical knowledge and the health of our community. We have been conducting Phase I clinical trials since 2005, helping many important drugs reach FDA approval. Prism is a locally owned and operated, independent facility in the heart of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area.
Whether you are here because you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, or you’re searching for a trusted partner to conduct a study on your behalf, our hope is that you find the information you need and the confidence to take the next step.
With your help, we can make a difference.
