This clinical study will attempt to find out why in early studies in healthy volunteers, injections under the skin of pasireotide were associated with temporary increases in both fasting and post-meal glucose levels, along with possible increases in insulin and glucagon levels. Glucose refers to the amount of sugar in your blood and insulin and glucagon levels are amounts of hormones that lower and raise blood sugar. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effects of pasireotide on insulin resistance and secretion. Insulin is a natural hormone made by the pancreas (a gland inside the abdomen) that controls the level of sugar in the blood. Insulin permits cells to use sugar for energy. Insulin resistance is the condition in which higher than normal amounts of insulin are necessary to allow the sugar to enter the cells. Insulin secretion refers to the amount of insulin produced by the body and released in the blood. Glucagon is a hormone (chemical substance produced by the pancreas gland in the body) which increases blood glucose.
