Upstate Active Clinical Trials

Study Title:

A Randomized, Multicenter Study to Evaluate Cardiovascular Outcomes with ITCA 650 in Patients Treated with Standard of Care for Type 2 Diabetes

What is the purpose of the study?

The main purposes of this study are to evaluate cardiovascular events in patients with type 2 diabetes and to test the safety and effectiveness of long-term treatment with ITCA 650 with diet and exercise and standard of care medication(s). ITCA 650 is an investigational drug/device combination which is placed under the skin of the abdomen (belly). This is a small device, about the size of a match. ITCA 650 delivers a specific amount of exenatide to the body every day for as long as it is in place under the skin, up to 6 months. Exenatide is the same drug that is in the FDA-approved drugs Byetta? and Bydureon? given as an injection to treat type 2 diabetes.
