Study Description

Brief Summary

The main purpose of this study is to learn about the side effects of LY3437943 when given to participants with type 2 diabetes. Blood tests will be performed to investigate how the body processes the study drug and how the study drug affects the body. Each enrolled participant will receive injections of LY3437943, dulaglutide, or placebo given just under the skin. For each participant, the study will last up to about 5 months and will include 16 visits to the study center.

    Outcome Measures

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Number of Participants with One or More Serious Adverse Event(s) (SAEs) Considered by the Investigator to be Related to Study Drug Administration [Baseline through Day 106]

      A summary of SAEs and other non-serious adverse events (AEs), regardless of causality, will be reported in the Reported Adverse Events module

    Secondary Outcome Measures

    1. Pharmacokinetics (PK): Area Under the Concentration Versus Time Curve of LY3437943 [Baseline through study completion (12 weeks)]

      PK: AUC of LY3437943

    2. PK: Maximum Concentration (Cmax) of LY3437943 [Baseline through study completion (12 weeks)]

      PK: Cmax of LY3437943

    3. Change from Baseline in Mean Daily Plasma Glucose (PG) [Baseline through Day 80]

      Change from baseline in mean daily PG from 6-point PG profile

    Eligibility Criteria

    20 Years to 70 Years
    Sexes Eligible for Study:
    Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
    Inclusion Criteria:
    • Have T2DM for at least 3 months before screening and are without advanced known possible complications of diabetes mellitus

    • Have a glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) value at lead-in and screening of ≥7.0% and ≤10.5% and treated with diet and exercise alone or a stable dose of metformin for at least 3 months prior to screening

    • Have had a stable body weight for the 3 months prior to randomization (<5% body weight change)

    • Have a body mass index of 23 to 50 kilograms per square meter (kg/m²), inclusive

    • Male participants agree to use an effective method of contraception for the duration of the study plus 90 days, which corresponds to 4 months after the last investigational product dose

    • Women not of childbearing potential may participate and include those who are: infertile due to surgical sterilization (hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, or tubal ligation), congenital anomaly such as mullerian agenesis; or those who are postmenopausal

    Exclusion Criteria:
