This research is randomized, controlled trial. 36 Chinese subjects with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus will take part in the trial.

Subjects will randomly enter into one of three groups, administration daily twice, the period of is 84 days treatment. Subjects should be in hospital for pharmacokinetic studies in 1 d~ 8d, 30 d (if necessary)and 84 d, during 9 d ~ 83 d outpatient follow-up.

Biological rExenatide-4

This protein of 39 amino acids has been isolated from the venom of the lizard Heloderma suspectum (Gila monster) (Eng et al, 1992). A mammalian homolog does not seem to exist (Pohl and Wank, 1998). Exendin-4 shares 53 % identity at the amino acid level with that of the mammalian hormone GLP-1 [glucagon-like peptide-1] (Chen and Drucker, 1997). Exendin-4 is encoded within a prohormone that is distinct from the prohormone encoding glucagon. Using transgenic mice expressing exendin-4, Adatia et al (2002) have shown that mammalian cells process the lizard prohormone in endocrine and nonendocrine cell types in vitro and in murine tissues in vivo.
