TDR14311 Study

Study Type


Study Purpose

This TDR14311 research study will assess an investigational drug (Lixisenatide) for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in adolescents.

The rate of type 2 diabetes in adolescents continues to rise. Currently, metformin is the only oral drug recommended as the initial medical treatment for type 2 diabetes in adolescents; however, metformin is not suitable for all adolescents. Therefore, there is a need for more treatment options for adolescents with type 2 diabetes.

About the Study

The drug Lixisenatide is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a treatment option for adults with type 2 diabetes. Pennington Biomedical is one of the research sites working to examine the drug’s effectiveness in an adolescent population (10-17 years old).
