      Trial Summary

      This is a Phase Ib, randomized, blinded, placebo-controlled, multiple ascending-dose study of the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic (PK), and pharmacodynamic (PD) effects of BFKB8488A in participants with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and participants with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease(NAFLD). A maximum of approximately 160 participants will be enrolled across multiple sites in the United States. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive study drug (active BFKB8488A or placebo). The study will consist of a screening period (up to 8 weeks), a 12-week treatment period, and a 6-week follow-up period. Participants may come to clinic for an optional pre-screening visit.

      This clinical trial was done to study a new medicine called, “BFKB8488A”, for the treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). This study was done to find out how safe BFKB8488A was for patients with T2DM and NAFLD when given at different doses. One hundred and fifty-three patients took part in this study at 17 study centers in USA.
