Oral Hypoglycemic Development Service for T2DM

Oral Hypoglycemic Development Service for T2DM

T2DM is a progressive condition, and to prevent long-term complications, improving and sustaining glycemic control is vital. Despite the variety of available glucose-lowering agents, emphasizing the need for further therapeutic options. Ace Therapeutics provides a complete set of oral antidiabetics development service for T2DM.

Oral Hypoglycemic for T2DM

Common hypoglycemic drugs include insulin and its analogues, sulfonylurea secretagogues, metformin, α-Glucosidase inhibitor, thiazolidinedione derivative sensitizer, GLP-1 receptor agonist, DPP-4 enzyme inhibitor, etc. Oral antidiabetics help patients to manage themselves more conveniently, and the combination of oral hypoglycemic drugs and insulin can avoid hypoglycemia caused by some oral antidiabetics or insulin overdose.

  • Metformin
    Metformin is generally recommended as a first line treatment. The antihyperglycemic effect of metformin is mainly based on suppression of hepatic gluconeogenesis by activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). Metformin does not increase insulin secretion and is rarely associated with hypoglycemia or weight gain.
  • Sulfonylureas
    The main role is to promote the secretion of insulin from pancreatic β-cells. The most commonly used is glimepiride.
  • Thiazolidinediones
    The main effect is to increase the sensitivity of insulin and improve blood sugar control. Pioglitazone and rosiglitazone are currently available.
  • Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors
    It is mainly to reduce glucagon (glucagon) and hypoglycemia, common linagliptin, saxagliptin, vildagliptin, sitagliptin.
  • SGLT2 inhibitors
    The main effect is to inhibit the reabsorption of glucose in the kidneys and excrete glucose in the urine. SGLT2 inhibitors can reduce blood glucose levels and can reduce diastolic and systolic blood pressure. Common drugs such as dapagliflozin, canagliflozin, ertugliflozin, empagliflozin.
  • Glucagon-like peptide-1 analogs
    It can increase insulin secretion and inhibit the secretion of postprandial glucagon. most GLP receptor agonists (liraglutide, exenatide, and others) are administered orally.

Oral Hypoglycemic Delivery

After oral administration, insulin is absorbed by the hepatic portal vein and transported to the liver, which can activate normal physiological functions. However, the gastrointestinal tract has multiple absorption barriers, such as chemical barriers, enzymatic barriers, and osmotic barriers, making it difficult to achieve ideal oral bioavailability. In order to improve the bioavailability of drugs, many new carriers are applied to drug delivery systems.

  • Inorganic Nano Carrier
    Many inorganic nano carriers such as gold nanoparticles, zirconium phosphate (ZrP) nanoparticles and silica nanoparticles can be used in oral drug delivery systems. Compared with organic materials, these inorganic materials are more stable in the acidic conditions of gastrointestinal tract and enzyme environment.
  • Polymer Carrier
    In natural polymers, polysaccharides (chitosan, dextran and alginate) and proteins (gelatin) are often used for oral delivery. Synthetic polymers are mainly including polycaprolactone, poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) and poly lactic acid (PLA).
  • Liposomes
    Liposomes have similar structures with cell membranes and are widely used as carriers of polypeptide drugs.
  • Microorganism
    Microorganisms can also be used as oral drug carriers. For example, yeast can enter lymphatic and blood circulation via M cell-mediated endocytosis.
