The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerance of a single intravenous (through a vein) dose of trodusquemine (MSI-1436) in obese, type 2 diabetics. Different amounts of trodusquemine (MSI-1436) will be given to each volunteer group throughout the study. Another purpose is to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK - the study of the way the drug enters and leaves the blood and tissues over time) of trodusquemine (MSI-1436). Finally, this study will also determine whether trodusquemine (MSI-1436) has any effect on appetite, mood or behavior, and selective biomarkers (substances in your blood that may change in response to the study drug).

Subjects on a combination of metformin and sulfonylurea must have a hemoglobin A1C ≥ 7.5% (but ≤ 10.0%); 4. non-smoker 5. body mass index (BMI) of 27-40 kg/m2 Exclusion Criteria: 1. likely allergy or sensitivity to any components of Trodusquemine (MSI-1436) for Injection based on known allergies to drugs of the same class; 2. any subject with a history of allergy (rash, hives, breathing difficulty, etc.) to any medications, either prescription or nonprescription, including dietary supplements or herbal medications; 3. any subject with a history of severe allergy or bronchial asthma; 4. a clinically significant history of or current abnormality or disease of any organ system, including renal, hepatic, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular (except hyperlipidemia or controlled hypertension), pulmonary (including chronic asthma), endocrine (except diabetes), central nervous, or hematologic systems, or recent clinically significant surgery;
