COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Australian Aboriginal patients who are taking metformin for their type 2 diabetes are required to provide a minimum of 1 blood sample and a maximum of 6 blood samples on different occasions. There are no fixed timing period. Blood samples are used to determine metformin concentrations, glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c), creatinine, vitamin B12 and lactic acid concentration. The overall duration of this study is 24 months.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 279538 0
To investigate whether the pharmacokinetics of metformin is different in Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients compared to non-Indigenous Australians.
Timepoint [1] 279538 0
Data analysis at the end of recruitment.
Secondary outcome [1] 287867 0
To investigate factors influencing the pharmacokinetics of metformin between Australian Aboriginal patients. This includes the influence of kidney function (creatinine clearance), body size descriptors (weight) and age. These factors will be used as covariates in a population pharmacokinetic model to investigate inter-patient variability in metformin pharmacokinetics.
Timepoint [1] 287867 0
At the first instance for each patient.

Summary
Brief summary
This study investigates the use of metformin in Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients with type 2 diabetes. The aim of this study is to compare the pharmacokinetics of metformin in Australian Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians patients. It involves obtaining a medical history of the patient and asking patients about their metformin formulation, dose, dosing times and their compliance to the medication.
