Since the development of various synthetic medications to help type 2 diabetes patients maintain control of their blood sugar levels, insulin has been used as a “last resort”. This is because insulin could only be taken using needles. This is despite the fact that it may be the most appropriate treatment. Well, medical researchers are studying new ways to provide type 2 diabetes patients with insulin orally (by mouth). In fact, a research center near you is currently seeking participants for a study assessing the safety and effectiveness of an investigational type 2 diabetes medication: insulin taken in capsule form by mouth.

Who is eligible for this clinical research study?

Qualified study participants will meet the following entry criteria*:

Have type 2 diabetes
Be 18 to 70 years old
NOT taking insulin, Actos, Avandia, or Byetta

*These are just a few of the study entry requirements. There are others that may make you ineligible to participate; these can be discussed with a study representative.

If you are eligible and decide to participate, you will receive study-related medical care and study medication at no cost.
