Study Summary:

ICON Early Phase Services is looking for healthy men for a clinical research study.  This study is being done to test an investigational product for glycemic control and body weight reduction. The study drug will be administered orally. 

The very first appointment will be the information session where you will be given information about the study.  Please note, you do not have to fast for the information visit.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions and receive further information on the study and you will also be given an informed consent form. No study procedures will be performed at this first appointment and no fasting is required for the information session appointment. After you receive information on the study and have the opportunity to ask your questions, you may either decline participation in the study or agree to participate and sign the study informed consent form. If you agree to participate in the study, the study staff will schedule with you a screening visit appointment and will provide you with the requirements for the screening visit, inform you about what procedures will be done at the screening visit, and will discuss with you about what medical records and documents you should bring to the screening visit.

Please review the information below and determine whether you are interested in the study and would like to schedule your information session appointment.

Vital signs, ECGs, physical examinations, and drug and alcohol screens will be performed during the study. Blood and urine samples will also be obtained during this study. 

After the information session appointment and if you agree to participate in the study and sign the study informed consent, you will be invited and scheduled to complete a screening visit.

To determine if you fully qualify, it will be necessary to obtain blood samples after a recommended 10- hour fast.  You have the option of fasting for the screening appointment, or, you may return at a later date. If ICON does not have your medical records on file, you may need to provide medical records at screening.  For more information, see below.
