Teneligliptin: A Review in Type 2 Diabetes

Teneligliptin: A Review in Type 2 Diabetes Oral teneligliptin [Teneglucon® (Argentina)], a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor, is indicated for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). This article reviews the pharmacology, therapeutic efficacy and tolerability of teneligliptin in the treatment of adults with T2DM. In 12- or 16-week, placebo-controlled phase 2 and 3 trials, oral teneligliptin 20 or 40 mg once daily, as monotherapy or in combination with metformin, glimepiride or pioglitazone improved glycaemic control, including in patients with end-stage renal disease, and was generally well tolerated. Most treatment-emergent adverse events were of mild intensity and relatively few patients discontinued treatment because of these events. Improvements in glycaemic control observed in short-term trials were maintained at 52 weeks in extension phases of these trials and in 52-week interventional studies, with no new safety concerns identified during this period. In the absence of direct head-to-head clinical trials, the position of teneligliptin relative to other antidiabetic agents in the management of T2DM remains to be determined. In the meantime, teneligliptin is a useful treatment option for adults with T2DM who have not responded adequately to diet and exercise regimens, or the addition of antidiabetic drugs. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Clinical Drug Investigation Springer Journals

Abstract

Oral teneligliptin [Teneglucon® (Argentina)], a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor, is indicated for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). This article reviews the pharmacology, therapeutic efficacy and tolerability of teneligliptin in the treatment of adults with T2DM. In 12- or 16-week, placebo-controlled phase 2 and 3 trials, oral teneligliptin 20 or 40 mg once daily, as monotherapy or in combination with metformin, glimepiride or pioglitazone improved glycaemic control, including in patients with end-stage renal disease, and was generally well tolerated. Most treatment-emergent adverse events were of mild intensity and relatively few patients discontinued treatment because of these events. Improvements in glycaemic control observed in short-term trials were maintained at 52 weeks in extension phases of these trials and in 52-week interventional studies, with no new safety concerns identified during this period. In the absence of direct head-to-head clinical trials, the position of teneligliptin relative to other antidiabetic agents in the management of T2DM remains to be determined. In the meantime, teneligliptin is a useful treatment option for adults with T2DM who have not responded adequately to diet and exercise regimens, or the addition of antidiabetic drugs.
