The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential effects of ER niacin/laropiprant, ER niacin, laropiprant, and placebo over the course of seven days on urinary levels of a specific metabolite (which is a marker of in vivo platelet reactivity).

Clinical Details

Official title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, 4-Period, Crossover Study to Evaluate the Effects of ER Niacin/Laropiprant, Laropiprant, ER Niacin, and Placebo on Urinary Prostanoid Metabolites in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Urinary 11-Dehydrothromboxane B2 (11-dTxB2)

Secondary outcome: Prostaglandin I Metabolite (PGI-M)

Detailed description: Subjects will receive 1 of 4 treatments per period and will eventually receive all 4 treatments: Treatment A: ER niacin 2g/laropiprant 40 mg daily + Placebo to laropiprant for 7 days Treatment B: ER niacin 2 g daily + Placebo to laropiprant for 7 days Treatment C: laropiprant 40 mg daily + Placebo to ER niacin/laropiprant for 7 days Treatment D: placebo daily for 7 days. There will be at least a 7-day interval between dosing on Day 7 of a period and dosing on Day 1 of the subsequent period
