Introduction Many guidelines on type 2 diabetes recommend a glycosylated haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) level below 7%. HbA1c levels in the blood express glucose or glycaemic control over a longer time period (two to three months). During the course of type 2 diabetes it will get more difficult to reach these levels with lifestyle modification (diet, exercise or both) and oral glucose-lowering agents alone. Finally, a substantial number of people will need insulin therapy for better glycaemic control. Insulin therapy can be initiated as insulin alone, called monotherapy (which means that oral glucose-lowering medication will be stopped) or in combination with oral glucose-lowering agents. In the former case, oral blood glucose-lowering agents can be added at a later stage, if insulin monotherapy fails to achieve a good HbA1c level. Hypoglycaemia and weight gain are the most common and well known side effects of insulin therapy. Adding oral agents to insulin could reduce the required insulin dose and ...
Anti-diabetic Drug refers to the medications consumed orally that are prescribed to treat diabetes mellitus (type 2). It treats diabetes (type 2) by lowering down the blood sugar level. These are also known as oral hypoglycaemic agentsororal antihyperglycemic agents.

OBJECTIVE-To evaluate whether treatment with insulin is advantageous compared with oral antidiabetes agents in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes with severe hyperglycemia after short-term intensive insulin therapy.. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS-Newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients with severe hyperglycemia were hospitalized and treated with intensive insulin injections for 10-14 days. The oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) was performed after intensive insulin treatment. After discharge, the patients were randomized to receive either insulin injections or oral antidiabetes drugs (OADs) for further management. The OGTT was repeated 6 months later, and β-cell function and insulin sensitivity were evaluated again. These subjects were continually followed up for another 6 months to evaluate their long-term glycemic control.. RESULTS-At the 6th month of the study, the A1C level was significantly lower in the insulin group than in the OAD group (6.33 ± 0.70% vs. 7.50 ± 1.50%; P = 0.002). During ...

When studying cells from a patient suffering from Parkinsons disease we saw that they lack an important protein which regulates the energy production, explains Fitzgerald. As a result, the cells keep on producing energy in their mitochondria-the cells powerhouses-unchecked and less regulated.. Energy production comes at the cost of the generation of free oxygen radicals. The radicals damage the cell and lead to aging and, in the long term, sometimes to cell death. The diabetes drug acts like a brake in this process. It slows down the uncontrolled generation of energy, thereby protecting the cells from the negative effects, the researcher reports.. The study by the Tübingen neuroscientists provides another indication that diabetes drugs might have a positive influence on certain types of Parkinsons disease. Only recently, an Anglo-American research collaboration showed that another diabetes drug can reduce movement disorder symptoms in patients with Parkinsons disease, says ...

There is also a sub-study in the Clinical Research Center (CRC), which requires two 38-hour inpatient stays during the main study. This study offers the opportunity to study 24-hour blood sugar and metabolic patterns quantitatively. ...
Philip Home. Cardiovascular outcome trials (CVOTs) of glucose-lowering medications that have been completed in recent years have provided welcome pointers towards best use of these drugs in diabetes care. However, many questions and uncertainties remained. In this issue, Philip Home (https://doi.org/10.1007/s00125-018-4801-1) discusses studies in three major glucose-lowering drug classes, which were published and presented recently (October/November 2018). These studies help to confirm or clarify our understanding of how the three classes should be positioned clinically and whether there are within-class differences. For dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP4) inhibitors, CARMELINA confirmed neutrality for cardiovascular outcomes, with no heart failure signal, albeit in a highly selected population. For GLP-1 receptor agonists, the Harmony Outcome study confirmed an early and continuing benefit for cardiovascular protection for this class, independent of glucose- or body-weight-lowering. For ...

Results from an 18-week phase 3 study in adults with Type 2 diabetes with inadequate glycemic control on metformin therapy alone found that the addition of treatment with Onglyza (saxagliptin) 5 mg per day was equally effective to the addition of treatment with Januvia (sitagliptin) 100 mg per day in reducing hemoglobin levels in patients.. This study was submitted to the European Medicines Agency as part of the marketing authorization application for Onglyza. Complete findings from this study will be submitted for publication in the first half of 2010.. Onglyza was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in late July.. We are pleased with the findings from this study, which support that the addition of ONGLYZA to metformin lowers HbA1c in adults with inadequate glycemic control despite treatment with metformin, said Andre Scheen, MD, Head of the Division of Diabetes, Nutrition and Metabolic Disorders and Clinical Pharmacology Unit, Academic Hospital, Liege, Belgium.. Onglyza is a drug ...
There is a growing epidemic of type 2 diabetes (T2DM), and it is associated with various comorbidities. Patients with T2DM are usually treated with multiple drugs, and are therefore at an increased risk of harmful drug-drug interactions (DDIs). Several potentially life-threatening DDIs concerning oral antidiabetic drugs have been identified. This has mostly been initiated by case reports but, more recently, the understanding of their mechanisms has greatly increased. In this article, we review the pharmacokinetic DDIs concerning oral antidiabetics, including metformin, sulfonylureas, meglitinide analogs, thiazolidinediones and dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors, and the underlying mechanistic basis that can help to predict and prevent DDIs. In particular, the roles of membrane transporters and cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes in these DDIs are discussed. ...
A prominent medical expert, Cardiologist Steven Nissen of the Cleveland Clinic urged the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to raise its standards for approving diabetes drugs on Tuesday. Nissen said that companies need to prove new drugs dont increase cardiovascular disease, the leading killer of diabetics. Nissen suggested that, in addition to requiring more pre-approval studies, companies should have large, long-term studies in place when a drug is approved to monitor whether the drug increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. He discussed the issue of diabetes drugs standards as a part of a two-day meeting starting Tuesday.
Repaglinide is an oral antihyperglycemic agent used for the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). It belongs to the meglitinide class of short-acting insulin secretagogues, which act by binding to β cells of the pancreas to stimulate insulin release. Repaglinide induces an early insulin response to meals decreasing postprandial blood glucose levels. It should only be taken with meals and meal-time doses should be skipped with any skipped meal. Approximately one month of therapy is required before a decrease in fasting blood glucose is seen. Meglitnides may have a neutral effect on weight or cause a slight increase in weight. The average weight gain caused by meglitinides appears to be lower than that caused by sulfonylureas and insulin and appears to occur only in those naïve to oral antidiabetic agents. Due to their mechanism of action, meglitinides may cause hypoglycemia although the risk is thought to be lower than that of sulfonylureas since their action is dependent on the
Could a long used diabetes drug be repurposed for cancer treatment? Researchers at Rice University have found a potential way to use the diabetes drug clas | Chemistry And Physics
We found that a novel antidiabetic drug, TRO, relaxed the medial strips of the porcine coronary artery by decreasing [Ca2+]i and by shifting the [Ca2+]i-force relation to the right in smooth muscle. The rightward shift of [Ca2+]i-force relation indicated the decrease in Ca2+ sensitivity of the contractile apparatus as a whole. The decrease in [Ca2+]i was mainly caused by an inhibition of Ca2+ influx and partly caused by an inhibition of agonist/receptor-mediated Ca2+ release. TRO completely inhibited [Ca2+]i increase and Mn2+ influx induced by 100 nmol/L U46619, but only partially inhibited those induced by 30 mmol/L K+, although these two stimulations induced similar [Ca2+]i elevation and Mn2+ influx. This finding suggested that there was a difference in efficacy of TRO in inhibiting Ca2+ influx between stimulation with U46619 and K+ depolarization. On the other hand, although 60 mmol/L K+ induced similar force development to that obtained with 100 nmol/L U46619, TRO inhibited U46619-activated ...
Scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute have shown that experimental diabetes drugs can make cancer cells more vulnerable to traditional chemotherapy agents, and they say such combinations should be explored to potentially improve outcomes for cancer patients.. Reporting in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, investigators demonstrated in cancer cell lines and animal models that the research compounds - similar to common anti-diabetic agents known as thiazolidinediones (TZDs) - sensitized lung tumor cells to carboplatin chemotherapy. Tumors in rodents treated with the combination of carboplatin and one of the experimental compounds, SR1664, weighed less than those in animals treated with carboplatin alone.. The research also showed that the combination sensitized triple-negative breast cancer cells in the laboratory, causing them to self-destruct. However, not all types of cancer cells appear to be made vulnerable to chemotherapy combined with the experimental compounds, the ...
A 26-week, randomized, open-label, active-controlled, non-inferiority study was conducted in insulin-treated patients with type 2 diabetes to assess the safety and efficacy of APIDRA (n= 435) given within 15 minutes before a meal compared to regular human insulin (n=441) administered 30 to 45 minutes prior to a meal. NPH human insulin was given twice a day as the basal insulin. All patients participated in a 4-week run-in period with regular human insulin and NPH human insulin. Eighty-five percent of patients were Caucasian and 11% were Black. The mean age was 58 years (range 26 to 84 years). The average body mass index (BMI) was 34.6 kg/m2. At randomization, 58% of the patients were taking an oral antidiabetic agent. These patients were instructed to continue use of their oral antidiabetic agent at the same dose throughout the trial. The majority of patients (79%) mixed their short-acting insulin with NPH human insulin immediately prior to injection. The reductions from baseline in GHb were ...

Objective: To investigate whether a dose-response relationship exists between volume of exercise and discontinuation of glucose-lowering medication treatment in patients with type 2 diabetes. Patients and Methods: Secondary analyses of a randomized controlled exercise-based lifestyle intervention trial (April 29, 2015 to August 17, 2016). Patients with non-insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes were randomly assigned to an intensive lifestyle intervention (U-TURN) or standard-care group. Both groups received lifestyle advice and objective target-driven medical regulation. Additionally, the U-TURN group received supervised exercise and individualized dietary counseling. Of the 98 randomly assigned participants, 92 were included in the analysis (U-TURN, n=61, standard care, n=31). Participants in the U-TURN group were stratified into tertiles based on accumulated volumes of exercise completed during the 1-year intervention. Results: Median exercise levels of 178 (interquartile range [IQR], 121-213; ...

Table 1 provides a summary of baseline characteristics, glycemic treatment strategies and goals, concomitant risk factor control, achieved glycemic control, and primary results of each of the three studies. The ACCORD study randomized 10,251 participants with either history of a CVD event (aged 40-79 years) or significant CVD risk (aged 55-79 years with anatomical CVD, albuminuria, left ventricular hypertrophy, or at least two other CVD risk factors) to a strategy of intensive glycemic control (target A1C ,6.0%) or standard glycemic control (target A1C 7.0-7.9%). Investigators used multiple glycemic medications in both arms. ACCORD participants were on average 62 years of age and had a mean duration of diabetes of 10 years, with 35% already treated with insulin at baseline. From a baseline median A1C of 8.1%, the intensive arm reached a median A1C of 6.4% within 12 months of randomization, while the standard group reached a median A1C of 7.5%. Other risk factors were treated aggressively and ...
A study of over 100,000 people from German healthcare records show the type 2 diabetes drug, pioglitazone, to be linked with lower rates of Alzheimers disease. Actos is in a class of drugs called thiazolidinediones, or TZDs for short. These drugs work by increasing the bodys sensitivity to insulin. Whilst thiazolidinediones have been shown to improve blood glucose control, researchers have been interested to understand whether this has benefits for the brain, particularly with regard to preventing or delaying forms of dementia such as Alzheimers disease.

Background In patients with type 2 diabetes and a high cardiovascular risk profile, the sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors empagliflozin and canagliflozin have been shown to lower cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Using real-world data from clinical practice, we aimed to compare cardiovascular mortality and morbidity in new users of SGLT2 inhibitors versus new users of other glucose-lowering drugs, in a population with a broad cardiovascular risk profile. Methods CVD-REAL Nordic was an observational analysis of individual patient-level data from the Prescribed Drug Registers, Cause of Death Registers, and National Patient Registers in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. All patients who filled a prescription for glucose-lowering drugs between 2012 and 2015 were included and followed up until Dec 31, 2015. Patients were divided into new users of SGLT2 inhibitors and new users of other glucose-lowering drugs. Each SGLT2 inhibitor user was matched with three users of other ...

Objectives: To compare health care costs among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) who added a new oral anti-diabetes drug (OAD) to an initial regimen with those who up-titrated their initial OAD.. Methods: Insurance claims data were obtained from 94 health plans for patients aged ≥18 years with ICD-9-CM diagnosis of T2DM during the period Jan. 1, 2001-June 30, 2007, and a newly prescribed metformin or sulfonylurea monotherapy. Patients were followed after initiating monotherapy to identify occurrence of first-treatment modification (addition or up-titration). Health care costs were analyzed during 360 days after first treatment modification. Subgroup analyses included comparison of addition cohort with two titration subgroups: 1) titration up to or below intermediate doses and 2) titration to beyond intermediate doses.. Results: During the post-treatment modification period, all-cause medication costs were 9% higher (p ,0.0001), while inpatient costs were 14% lower for the addition ...
A new study just out compares diabetes drugs that have been out for years to those supposedly on the cutting edge of medicine.. Many diabetes patients have been taking the more expensive, and newer drug Avandia. But after another study linked it with heart problems, patients looking at older medications have some good news. Avandia, one of the newest drugs, costs hundreds more a month than older drugs. like Glucophage. The good news from a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine is that Glucophage, the older drug, appears just as effective. Glucophage has been out for about 10 years now, and its generic now which has helped the cost a bit. Its actually one of my first line drugs, says Trinity Mother Frances endocrinologist Dr. Meg Reitmeyer.. She says expensive isnt necessarily better. The study confirms Glucophage doesnt cause weight gain, doesnt cause blood sugar to plummet, and can lower bad cholesterol. The study says it is just as effective at treating diabetes. Meanwhile, ...

A study released today and reported in Reuters reveals that diabetes drugs, Avandia and Actos, are bad for your bones.. This study shows that these agents double the risk of fractures in women with type 2 diabetes, who are already at higher risk before taking the therapy, said Sonal Singh of North Carolinas Wake Forest University School of Medicine.. Singh and colleagues at Wake Forest , working with researchers at Britains University of East Anglia, based their findings on a pooled analysis of 10 previous clinical studies lasting at least a year involving 14,000 patients. These drugs are already linked to adverse heart effects including raising the risk of heart failure and carry warning labels for that.

Metformin, a commonly prescribed diabetes drug, may reduce the risk of dying from some cancers for postmenopausal women with type 2 diabetes, a new study suggests.
The Food and Drug Administration is looking into new evidence that suggests a group of recently approved diabetes drugs can increase the risk of pancreatitis and other problems. The agency said Thursday samples of pancreas tissue taken from a small number of patients showed inflammation and cellular changes that often precede cancer. Academic researchers took the samples from diabetes patients who were taking the new medications, after they died from various causes.
Avoiding hypoglycemia: a key to success for glucose-lowering therapy in type 2 diabetes Bo Ahrén Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University, Lund, Sweden Abstract: Type 2 diabetes carries a risk for hypoglycemia, particularly in patients on an intensive glucose control plan as a glucose-lowering strategy, where hypoglycemia may be a limitation for the therapy and also a factor underlying clinical inertia. Glucose-lowering medications that increase circulating insulin in a glucose-independent manner, such as insulin and sulfonylurea therapy, are the most common cause of hypoglycemia. However, other factors such as a delayed or missed meal, physical exercise, or drug or alcohol consumption may also contribute. Specific risk factors for development of hypoglycemia are old age, long duration of diabetes, some concomitant medication, renal dysfunction, hypoglycemia unawareness, and cognitive dysfunction. Hypoglycemia is associated with acute short-term symptoms
Watch the video Diabetes Drug Could Hold Promise For Lung Cancer Patients Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online. Scientists have been enthusiastic about the potential use of widely available diabetes drugs to treat various types of cancer. A new study from The Salk Institute for Biological Studies and the David Geffen UCLA School of Medicine suggests that these metabolism-affecting drugs can decrease the size of lung tumors in mice and increase their chances for survival.. According to the study, the diabetes drug phenformin may effectively treat 30 percent of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), a type of cancer with tumors that lack the LKB1 gene.. The LKB1 gene is crucial to every cell´s life cycle as it regulates metabolism by turning on an enzyme called AMPK when levels of the energy molecule ATP are running low within the cell. Previous research by some of the same researchers showed that cells without a normal copy of LKB1 do not activate the AMPK enzyme in ...
In the present study two oral antidiabetic agents, a sulfonylurea (glipizide) and a biguanide (metformin), were administrated to non-diabetic African Americans with insulin resistance in a double blind fashion for 24 months. PWV increased significantly in both treatment groups after 24 months. In contrast, PWV remained unchanged in the placebo group. This increase in PWV in glipizide and metformin treated subjects was significant compared with the placebo group. Thus, long term administration of oral antidiabetic glipizide or metformin to normoglycaemic African Americans with insulin resistance may decrease the elastic properties of the aorta. It has been shown previously that increased PWV is an indicator of a high incidence of cardiovascular events and an independent predictor of cardiac mortality.21-25. The cause of this observation is not well understood. The two drugs used in the present study have different mechanisms of action but their glucose lowering effect is generally equivalent. ...

The research offers further evidence supporting such benefits of long-term treatment by metformin, which is taken by patients with type 2 diabetes and helps to prevent cardiovascular complications. The team examined if cancers originate from adult stem cells and how many types of chemicals can enhance the growth of breast cancer cells, by growing miniature human breast tumours, called mammospheres, in culture dishes. This activated a stem cell gene, before the mammospheres were exposed to both natural oestrogen and man-made chemicals that can promote tumours or cause problems for the endocrine system.

Bo Ahrén Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University, Lund, Sweden Abstract: Type 2 diabetes carries a risk for hypoglycemia, particularly in patients on an intensive glucose control plan as a glucose-lowering strategy, where hypoglycemia may be a limitation for the therapy and also a factor underlying clinical inertia. Glucose-lowering medications that increase circulating insulin in a glucose-independent manner, such as insulin and sulfonylurea therapy, are the most common cause of hypoglycemia. However, other factors such as a delayed or missed meal, physical exercise, or drug or alcohol consumption may also contribute. Specific risk factors for development of hypoglycemia are old age, long duration of diabetes, some concomitant medication, renal dysfunction, hypoglycemia unawareness, and cognitive dysfunction. Hypoglycemia is associated with acute short-term symptoms related to either counterregulation, such as tachycardia and sweating, or to neuroglycopenia, such as

Glucophage belongs to a group of medicines called biguanides. Glucophage lowers high blood glucose (hyperglycaemia) by helping your body make better use of the insulin produced by your pancreas. Therapeutic actions: Metformin is an antihyperglycemic agent which improves glucose tolerance in patients with type 2 diabetes, lowering both basal and postprandial plasma glucose. Its pharmacologic mechanisms of action are different from other classes of oral antihyperglycemic agents. Metformin decreases hepatic glucose production, decreases intestinal absorption of glucose, and improves insulin sensitivity by increasing peripheral glucose uptake and utilization. Unlike sulfonylureas, metformin does not produce hypoglycemia in either patients with type 2 diabetes or normal subjects (except in special circumstances, see PRECAUTIONS) and does not cause hyperinsulinemia. With metformin therapy, insulin secretion remains unchanged while fasting insulin levels and day-long plasma insulin response may ...
06 Dec 2017. The drug metformin, typically prescribed to treat type 2 diabetes, keeps breast cancer cells from developing multiple drug resistance (MDR) and can reverse MDR after it¹s appeared, according to a study published in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Terra Arnason from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, and colleagues.. Previous studies have shown that metformin has some antiproliferative activity against multiple types of cancer cells.. Moreover, clinical meta-analysis studies on cancer patients who already take metformin to treat diabetes have hinted that the drug may boost their survival and prevent the emergence of new tumours.. Arnason and colleagues probed the effect of metformin on the widely studied breast cancer cell line MCF7.. Metformin, they found, had an antiproliferative effect on MCF7, including cells that were resistant to the common chemotherapeutic Doxorubicin.. When cells were pretreated with metformin, the development of drug resistance was prevented or ...
Abstract: Aims To compare the efficacy and safety of either continuing or discontinuing rosiglitazone + metformin fixed-dose combination when starting insulin therapy in people with Type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled on oral therapy.. Methods In this 24-week double-blind study, 324 individuals with Type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled on maximum dose rosiglitazone + metformin therapy were randomly assigned to twice-daily premix insulin therapy (target pre-breakfast and pre-evening meal glucose ≤ 6.5 mmol/l) in addition to either rosiglitazone + metformin (8/2000 mg) or placebo.. Results Insulin dose at week 24 was significantly lower with rosiglitazone + metformin (33.5 ± 1.5 U/day, mean ± se) compared with placebo [59.0 ± 3.0 U/day; model-adjusted difference −26.6 (95% CI −37.7, −15,5) U/day, P < 0.001]. Despite this, there was greater improvement in glycaemic control [HbA1c rosiglitazone + metformin vs. placebo 6.8 ± 0.1 vs. 7.5 ± 0.1%; difference −0.7 (−0.8, −0.5)%, ...

Increasing evidence is suggesting that Type 2 diabetes and pancreatic cancer are somehow linked, but exactly how the link works remains unclear.. A new study may help clarify things - it shows that taking a drug aimed at treating Type 2 diabetes may change a persons risk of developing pancreatic cancer, depending on the drug.. Though some research has shown those with Type 2 diabetes are at an increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer, the new study found that women who took metformin, now the most common treatment for Type 2 diabetes, had a lower risk of pancreatic cancer than the general population. In contrast, women who took drugs from an older class of diabetes treatments, called sulfonylureas, had a higher risk of the cancer, according to the study.. For men, insulin use was linked with a slightly increased risk of pancreatic cancer.. The gender differences surprised the scientists at the University of Basel in Switzerland, who conducted the research. This result is somewhat ...
CONTEXT We wanted to understand the effects of once-weekly vs. twice-daily glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonism for treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to compare effects of exenatide once weekly (ExQW) and exenatide twice daily (ExBID) on glycemic control, body weight, and safety. DESIGN This was a 24-wk, randomized, open-label, comparator-controlled study. SETTING The study was conducted at 43 sites in the United States. PATIENTS The study population was 252 intent-to-treat patients with type 2 diabetes [baseline (mean ± SD): glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) 8.4 ± 1.2%, fasting plasma glucose 171 ± 47 mg/dl, weight 96 ± 20 kg] that were drug naïve (19%) or previously treated with one (47%) or multiple (35%) oral antidiabetic medications. INTERVENTIONS Interventions included ExQW 2 mg for 24 wk or ExBID 5 μg for 4 wk followed by ExBID 10 μg for 20 wk. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE The change in HbA1c from baseline to wk 24 was measured.

PGLa-AM1 and its [A14K] and [A20K] analogues produced a concentration-dependent stimulation of insulin release from BRIN-BD11 rat clonal β-cells without cytotoxicity at concentrations up to 3 μM. In contrast, the [A3K] was cytotoxic at concentrations ≥ 30 nM. The potency and maximum rate of insulin release produced by the [A14K] and [A20K] peptides were significantly greater than produced by PGLa-AM1. [A14K]PGLa-AM1 also stimulated insulin release from mouse islets at concentrations ≥ 1 nM and from the ...
Metformin may have several actions against cancer as it reduces blood glucose, inhibits insulin and IGF-1 production, reduces cholesterol and has an indirect effect on reducing m-TOR levels; a specific study on breast cancer suggests increased survival times.. Metformin, or Glucophage, is an anti-hyperglycemic drug which lowers glucose production in the liver and improves uptake of glucose by cells but does not increase insulin production.. In many of the early studies, patients were taking metformin because they had diabetes. One study of women having breast cancer chemotherapy showed 24% of type 2 diabetes patients taking metformin having complete remission, vs 16% non-diabetic patients vs 8% type-2 diabetes patients not taking metformin. In HER2 positive cancer patients taking metformin because of diabetes resulted in 40% lower progression and death after 4.5 years than those not taking metformin.. According to MD Anderson, metformin affects multiple signalling processes to do with growth, ...
Sitagliptin (INN; /sɪtəˈɡlɪptɪn/ ( listen), previously identified as MK-0431 and marketed as the phosphate salt under the trade name Januvia) is an oral antihyperglycemic (antidiabetic drug) of the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor class. It was developed, and is marketed, by Merck & Co. This enzyme-inhibiting drug is used either alone or in combination with other oral antihyperglycemic agents (such as metformin or a thiazolidinedione) for treatment of diabetes mellitus type 2. Side effects are as common with sitagliptin (whether used alone or with metformin or pioglitazone) as they were with placebo, except for rare nausea and common cold-like symptoms, including photosensitivity. No significant difference exists in the occurrence of hypoglycemia between placebo and sitagliptin. In those taking sulphonylureas, the risk of low blood sugar is increased. The existence of rare case reports of renal failure and hypersensitivity reactions is noted in the United States prescribing ...
In findings presented at The Endocrine Societys 94th Annual Meeting in Houston, scientists presented evidence that the generic diabetes drug metformin is linked to a lower chance of mortality, compared to 3 other drugs that are known as sulfonylureas - glipizide, glyburide, and glimepiride.. Kevin M. Pantalone, D.O., an endocrinologist at Summa Western Reserve Hospital in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, who conducted this study in collaboration with researchers from Cleveland Clinic said in a press release, We have clearly demonstrated that metformin is associated with a substantial reduction in mortality risk, and, thus, should be the preferred first-line agent, if one has a choice between metformin and a sulfonylurea.. For the study, researchers looked at electronic medical records of 23,915 patients with type 2 diabetes who had taken one of the four drugs in the past. Average age of people in the study was 62 and half of the participants were male. ...
Results from a new study suggest low doses of the diabetes drug metformin may effectively destroy pancreatic cancer stem cells, reducing the risk of tumor growth or recurrence.
Use of metformin seems to improve reproductive and metabolic abnormalities in women with PCOS. However, the disparity of results in clinical studies cannot give us a conclusive answer if metformin is a new line therapy of the syndrome. The present randomised, placebo-controlled study was designed to compare the antihyperglycemic drug metformin vs. placebo combined with lifestyle modification in the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome in obese women. Special attention was paid to the effects of this medication on insulin and glucose metabolism, endocrine and biochemical parameters, and menstrual function. Forty six obese women with PCOS, aged between 22-39 years and mean BMI 38.1 were randomized to receive either metformin (500 mg three times a day for 16 weeks) or placebo. The metformin and placebo groups were matched for age, endocrinological and metabolic parameters. Changes in FSH, LH, estradiol, testosterone, DHEA-S and SHBG, total cholesterol, triglycerides, insulin, glucose, HbA1c, ...
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) is a systemic metabolic disorder with complex pathogenesis. In recent years, a variety of new T2DM drugs have emerged, such as sodium-dependent glucose transporters 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists and dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors. As traditional medicines, insulin also has developed kinds of formulations such as quick-acting or premixed insulin. In addition, new treatment schedules combining multiple drugs are also fully explored. The efficacy, the administration, the mechanism, the safety and the price of these drugs are all different, providing patients with multiple options. This paper reviews the main types of type 2 diabetes drugs on the market and describes the mechanism of action. The representative type 2 diabetes treatment drugs are listed, and the advantages and disadvantages of these representative drugs are preliminarily evaluated. This information is reviewed to help doctors with clinical medication.
Washington, DC-African Americans taking the diabetes drug metformin saw greater improvements in their blood sugar control than white individuals who were prescribed the same medication, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Societys Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism (JCEM). An estimated 29 million Americans have diabetes. African Americans are twice as likely to be diagnosed with diabetes as whites and have a higher rate of complications such as kidney failure, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health. Metformin is the most common oral medication prescribed for diabetes. It decreases the amount of glucose produced by the liver and helps the body respond better to insulin, the hormone that helps carry sugar from the bloodstream into cells. Metformin is normally the first treatment physicians prescribe for type 2 diabetes, but the standard of care is based on clinical trials where the vast majority of participants were ...
Aim: Peroxisome proliferator activated receptor γ (PPARγ) agonists have been shown to prevent hepatic fibrosis in rodents. We evaluated the therapeutic antifibrotic potential of the PPARγ agonist pioglitazone on established hepatic fibrosis.. Methods: Repeated injections of carbon tetrachloride (CCl4), a choline deficient diet, or bile duct ligation (BDL) were used to induce hepatic fibrosis in rats. Pioglitazone treatment was introduced at various time points. Therapeutic efficacy was assessed by comparison of the severity of hepatic fibrosis in pioglitazone treated versus untreated fibrotic controls.. Results: When introduced after two weeks of CCl4, pioglitazone reduced hepatic fibrosis, OH proline content, hepatic mRNA expression of collagen type I, and profibrotic genes, as well as the number of activated α smooth muscle actin positive hepatic stellate cells, compared with rats receiving CCl4 only, with no significant change in necroinflammation. When pioglitazone treatment was ...

Glucose-lowering therapies, adequacy of metabolic control, and their relationship with comorbid depression in outpatients with type 2 diabetes in a tertiary hospital in Kenya CF Frederick Otieno,1 Joseph E Kanu,1 Emma M Karari,1 Violet Okech-Helu,2 Mark D Joshi,1 Kenn Mutai2 1Department of Clinical Medicine and Therapeutics, University of Nairobi, 2Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi, Kenya Background: Depression and diabetes mellitus are important comorbid conditions with serious health consequences. When depression and diabetes are comorbid, depression negatively affects self-management activities of diabetes with serious consequences. Relationship between treatment regimens of diabetes, the adequacy of glycemic control, and occurrence of comorbid depression is not known among our patients.Patients and methods: This was a cross-sectional descriptive study at the outpatient diabetes clinic of the Kenyatta National Hospital where 220 ambulatory patients with type 2 diabetes on follow-up were
Recent population-based studies of type 2 diabetes patients have reported that metformin treatment is associated with a reduced cancer incidence and mortality ( 19, 20). Here, we investigated whether metformin has a direct effect on growth of HCT116 colon cancer cells in vivo. We report that treatment with either metformin or AICAR, two known activators of AMPK, reduces tumor growth in xenografts of HCT116 cells deficient for p53. In contrast, metformin and AICAR have little to no effect on the growth of xenografts of HCT116 p53+/+ cells. This selectivity correlated with the ability of HCT116 and untransformed MEFs to engage in a p53-dependent metabolic response that promoted cell survival.. p53 is a tumor suppressor that is often mutated in cancer. In response to genotoxic stresses, p53 induces a transcriptional response that can result in cell cycle arrest, senescence, or apoptosis. However, a recent study revealed a prosurvival role for p53 in cells metabolically impaired by glucose ...

Early initiation of pharmacologic therapy is associated with improved glycaemic control and reduced long-term complications in type 2 diabetes. There are multiple drug classes used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.. Biguanides. Metformin lowers basal and postprandial plasma glucose levels by decreasing hepatic gluconeogenesis production, slowing intestinal absorption of glucose and improves insulin sensitivity by increasing peripheral glucose uptake and utilisation. Unlike oral sulfonylureas, metformin rarely causes hypoglycaemia and is the only oral diabetes drug that facilitates modest weight loss. In addition, the UK Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS) demonstrated that it was successful at reducing macrovascular disease in obese patients.. Sulfonylureas. Sulfonylureas stimulate insulin release from pancreatic beta cells and enhance peripheral sensitivity to insulin secondary to an increase in insulin receptors or to changes in the events following insulin-receptor binding. Sulfonylureas ...
The antidiabetic drug metformin exhibits potential anticancer properties that are believed to involve both direct (insulin-independent) and indirect (insulin-dependent) actions. Direct effects are linked to activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and an inhibition of mammalian target of rapamycin mTOR signaling, and indirect effects are mediated by reductions in circulating insulin, leading to reduced insulin receptor (IR)-mediated signaling. However, the in vivo impact of metformin on cancer cell signaling and the factors governing sensitivity in patients remain unknown. We conducted a neoadjuvant, single-arm,

UPI.com Levels of possible cancer-causing chemicals in metformin diabetes medications are under investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Metformin is a prescription drug used to control high blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes. Over the past year and a half, several types of drugs -- including angiotensin II receptor blockers, or ARBs, used for high blood pressure and ranitidine, marketed as Zantac, for heartburn -- have been found to contain small amounts of genotoxic substances called nitrosamines, such as N-nitrosodimethylamine, or NDMA. A genotoxic substance is something that harms the genetic material in a cell. Exposure to genotoxic substances above acceptable levels over long periods may increase the risk of cancer, the FDA said. The FDA has been investigating the presence of nitrosamines in other drug products, and some metformin diabetes medicines in other countries were reported to have low levels of NDMA, according to Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of FDAs Center

ABSTRACT. Objective: Patients with diabetes have an increased Odds Ratio (OR) for depressive disorder. We wanted to investigate if patients with metabolic syndrome and/or diabetes type 2 not treated with antidiabetic agents, have an OR for concurrent antidepressant use comparable to other types of diabetes. Methods: Drug delivery data from 25 pharmacies were analysed with respect to sale of antidepressants, oral antidiabetic agents, insulin and blood glucose test strips. Results: Total population of the area was 337,019, whereas 254,083 were 18 or older. Of these 20,139 were patients receiving insulin, oral antidiabetics, glucose test strips and/or antidepressants. Those receiving antidepressants were 5.8% of those 18 or older whereas 2.4% received any antidiabetic medication (including test strips for HBGM). For patients receiving no medications but test strips alone, the adjusted OR for use concurrent use of antidepressants was 1.62 (95% confidence interval: 1.19 - 2.23), p = 0.002. For ...
