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.

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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

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.
Oral antihyperglycemic therapies are effective methods to control glucose levels among patients with type 2 diabetes, thus lowering their risk of developing microvascular and macrovascular complications. However, the relationship between oral medication nonadherence and hospitalization is not well established for patients with diabetes. Using administrative claims data in an MCO, this study found that among adult enrollees taking oral antihyperglycemic medications, almost 30% had poor adherence in 2000 and 2001. A significant relationship was found between antihyperglycemic medication nonadherence and subsequent hospitalization, after controlling for age, sex, adherence to antihypertensive and lipid-modifying drugs, the intensity of the diabetes drug regimen, the Charlson comorbidity index, and previous hospitalization. Enrollees who were nonadherent in 2000 were 2.5 times as likely to be hospitalized in 2001 as those who were adherent in 2000.. The relationship between medication adherence and ...

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, ...

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.
Researchers have found a vital role for miR-204 in beta cells -- regulating the cell surface receptor that is the target of many of the newer type 2 diabetes drugs, such as Byetta, Victoza, Trulicity, Januvia, Onglyza and Tradjenta. This drug target is the glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor, or GLP1R. Activation of GLP1R with these drugs helps the beta cell produce and secrete more insulin.
