Clinical results of treating type 2 diabetic patients with sitagliptin, vildagliptin or saxagliptin - diabetes control and potential adverse events

Ahrén, Bo LU (2009) In Best Practice and Research in Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism 23(4). p.487-498
Abstract
Inhibition of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) is a novel oral treatment for type 2 diabetes. DPP-4 inhibition increases insulin secretion and reduces glucagon secretion by preventing the inactivation of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), thereby lowering glucose levels. Several DPP-4 inhibitors are in clinical development; more studies exist for sitagliptin and vildagliptin. They improve metabolic control in type 2 diabetes in monotherapy and also in combination with metformin, sulphonylurea and thiazolidinediones. HbA(1c) is reduced by approximately 0.6-1.1% in studies up to 52 weeks. Similar, although more limited, results were obtained for saxagliptin. DPP-4 inhibitors are safe and tolerable with no increased risk of adverse events... (More)
Inhibition of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) is a novel oral treatment for type 2 diabetes.

Several DPP-4 inhibitors are in clinical development; more studies exist for sitagliptin and vildagliptin.

HbA(1c) is reduced by approximately 0.6-1.1% in studies up to 52 weeks. Similar, although more limited, results were obtained for saxagliptin. DPP-4 inhibitors are safe and tolerable with no increased risk of adverse events compared to placebo and have a low risk of hypoglycaemia. DPP-4 inhibitors are body weight-neutral. The DPP-4 inhibitors are recommended for use in the early stage of type 2 diabetes, in combination with metformin in subjects with inadequate glycaemic control. DPP-4 inhibition may also be used in combination with sulphonylurea and thiazolidinediones and potentially also in combination with insulin. The durability and long-term safety of DPP-4 inhibitors remain to be established. (Less)
