With REMD’s glucagon receptor antagonist, the study team propose to provide a comprehensive examination of the effect of elevated plasma glucagon concentrations in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2D) patients on:
(i) glucose tolerance; (ii) insulin sensitivity in liver, muscle, and adipocytes; (iii) beta cell function; (iv) adipocyte inflammation.
Subjects with T2DM inadequately controlled on current medications will participate in a glucose tolerance test, euglycemic insulin clamp combined with 3-3H-glucose and 14-C glycerol infusion, adipose tissue biopsy, before and 12 weeks after treatment with REMD 477 or placebo.
