Filling-up lipid stores is critical for size increase of mammalian adipocytes. The glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored protein, CD73, is released from adipocytes into microvesicles in response to the lipogenic stimuli, palmitate, the antidiabetic sulfonylurea drug glimepiride, phosphoinositolglycans (PIG), and H(2)O(2). Upon incubation of microvesicles with adipocytes, CD73 is translocated to cytoplasmic lipid droplets (LD) and esterification is upregulated. The role of CD73-harboring microvesicles in coordinating esterification between differently sized adipocytes was studied here. Populations consisting of either small or large or of both small and large isolated rat adipocytes as well as native adipose tissue pieces from young and old rats were incubated with or depleted of endogenous microvesicles and analyzed for translocation of CD73 and esterification in response to the lipogenic stimuli. Large adipocytes exhibited higher and lower efficacy in releasing CD73 into microvesicles and in translocating CD73 to LD, respectively, compared to small adipocytes. Populations consisting of both small and large adipocytes were more active in esterification in response to the lipogenic stimuli than either small or large adipocytes. With both adipocytes and adipose tissue pieces from young rats esterification stimulation by the lipogenic stimuli was abrogated by depletion of CD73-harboring microvesicles from the incubation medium and interstitial spaces, respectively. In conclusion, stimulus-induced lipid synthesis between differently sized adipocytes is controlled by the release of microvesicle-associated CD73 from large cells and its subsequent translocation to LD of small cells. This information transfer via microvesicles harboring GPI-anchored proteins may shift the burden of triacylglycerol storage from large to small adipocytes.

The FDA regulatory mandate to demonstrate CV safety in order to approve new diabetes drugs led to an increase in the number of CV outcome trials. However, these trials have placebo-controlled, non-inferiority designs aiming to show absence of CV toxicity. More studies are needed to address other questions, including comparative effectiveness, and longer-term risk versus benefits.
In patients on metformin monotherapy, the addition of a 100-mg dose of PF-04937319 improved glycaemic control and was well tolerated.
amaryl starting dose
Patients with type 2 diabetes receiving metformin were randomized to albiglutide (30 mg), sitagliptin (100 mg), glimepiride (2 mg), or placebo. Blinded dose titration for albiglutide (to 50 mg) and glimepiride (to 4 mg) was based on predefined hyperglycemia criteria. The primary end point was change in HbA1c from baseline at week 104. Secondary end points included fasting plasma glucose (FPG), weight, and time to hyperglycemic rescue.

Compared with the healthy control group, the middle-aged men with type 2 diabetes had significantly decreased total testosterone levels and a lower testosterone secretion index. Blood glucose and lipid profile levels were significantly improved after 16 weeks of treatment with no significant differences in bodyweight and waist circumference compared with baseline values. Recorded changes in luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone and sex hormone-binding globulin levels were not statistically significant. However, total testosterone levels were significantly increased and testosterone secretion index values were significant higher than those of the baseline.
The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of mitiglinide/voglibose fixed-dose combination and glimepiride on low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-heterogeneity in type-2 diabetic patients with unstable glycemic control after treatment with dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors.

No significant effects of the CYP2C9*2 and CYP2C9*3 alleles were found. However, a trend towards a lower stable glimepiride dose for carriers of the CYP2C9*3 allele was observed.
The study included 16,490 subjects. From baseline to follow-up, MPR decreased for both the Mono/FDCT cohort and the Mono/Dual cohort, but the magnitude of this decrease was less for the Mono/FDCT cohort (-0.02 vs -0.10; p < 0.001). Mean MPR significantly improved for the Dual/FDCT cohort compared with the Dual/Dual cohort (+0.10 vs +0.05; p < 0.001). The mean absolute A1C reduction did not differ significantly between the Mono/FDCT cohort (-1.08%) and the Mono/Dual cohort (-0.77%). Compared with the Dual/Dual cohort, the Dual/FDCT cohort experienced a greater absolute reduction in A1C (-0.06% vs -0.51%; p = 0.004). The results remained statistically significant in the multivariate model.

A 53-year-old African-American man (height, 185.4 cm; weight, 108.6 kg) with type 2 diabetes mellitus arrived at the emergency department (ED) with new-onset intolerable abdominal pain in the right upper quadrant and left upper quadrant that had appeared suddenly and lasted two to three hours. He had nausea but no vomiting, with tenderness in the epigastric region. In the ED, his serum amylase concentration was found to be extremely elevated (3,963 units/L), as was his serum lipase concentration (>15,000 units/L). In addition to type 2 diabetes, his medical history included hyperlipidemia, hypertension, peripheral neuropathy, erectile dysfunction, and obesity. His home medications included aspirin 81 mg orally daily, metformin 1000 mg orally every morning and 1500 mg every evening, simvastatin 80 mg orally daily at bedtime, tadalafil 20 mg orally as needed, glimepiride 4 mg orally twice daily, and liraglutide 1.2 mg subcutaneously daily. Two months before his arrival to the ED, the patient's dosage of liraglutide was increased from 0.6 to 1.2 mg subcutaneously daily. Radiographic data were obtained, and acute pancreatitis was diagnosed. Liraglutide was discontinued indefinitely after ruling out elevated triglycerides as the cause of pancreatitis. The patient was initiated on standard therapy for acute pancreatitis and discharged eight days later with complete resolution of symptoms and normal laboratory test values.

In present study, we investigated hypoglycemic and antihyperglycemic potential of five extracts (water, ethanol, methanol, hexane, and chloroform) of four plants (i.e., seeds of Eugenia jambolana, fruits of Momordica charantia, leaves of Gymnema sylvestre, and seeds of Trigonella foenum graecum) alone and/or in combination with glimepiride in rats. Ethanol extract of E. jambolana, water extract of M. charantia, ethanol extract of G. sylvestre, and water extract of T. graecum exhibited highest hypoglycemic and antihyperglycemic activity (most active) in rats among all the extracts, while hexane extracts exhibited least activities. Most active extracts were further studied to dose-dependent (200, 100, and 50 mg/kg body weight (bw)) hypoglycemic and antihyperglycemic effects alone and in combination with glimepiride (20, 10, and 5 mg/kg bw). The combination of most active extracts (200 mg/kg bw) and lower dose of glimepiride (5 mg/kg bw) showed safer and potent hypoglycemic as well as antihyperglycemic activities without creating severe hypoglycemia in normal rats, while higher doses (200 mg/kg bw of most active extracts, and 10 and 20 mg/kg bw of glimepiride) were generated lethal hypoglycemia in normal rats. From this study, it may be concluded that the ethanol extract of E. jambolana seeds, water extract of M. charantia fruits, ethanol extract of G. sylvestre leaves, and water extract of T. graecum seeds have higher hypoglycemic and antihyperglycemic potential and may use as complementary medicine to treat the diabetic population by significantly reducing dose of standard drugs.
Vildagliptin is well tolerated either as monotherapy or in combination but the majority of patients require add-on therapy shortly after the beginning of treatment.
76 patients were women and 99 patients suffered from type 2 diabetes. The mean age was 77.8 ± 9.4 years. The HbA1c of the patients with type 2 diabetes at admission was 6.5 ± 1.5 %. The greatest number of hypoglycemia episodes were associated with sulfonylurea and analoga (25), insulin (67), and the combination insulin and sulfonylurea (17). The applied sulfonylureas were in 38 % glibenclamide, in 55 % glimepiride and in 7 % repaglinide. The mean in-hospital stay was 10.4 days after admittance for hypoglycemia, the mean stay was 8.4 days for patients without hypoglycemia. Concerning creatinine there was a normal kidney function in 37.6 % of the patients, the calculated creatinine clearance was normal in only about 15 % of the patients. In 13 patients (12 %) any antidiabetic medication was stopped at time of discharge. 20 patients, chosen randomly, were analyzed concerning the costs associated with the hospital admittance. The mean age of these patients was 76.8 years and their mean stay in hospital was 10.2 day. The costs covered 3,158 €. The mean costs for the other internal patients was 2,716 €.

Almost 20% of patients were exposed to a potential drug-drug interaction with a CYP2C9 inhibitor during sulphonylurea treatment. More than 75% of the potential interactions occurred with trimethoprim, metronidazole and fluconazole. When all sulphonylureas were pooled and adjusted for age, gender, ward and sulphonylurea dose, mean and maximum fasting plasma glucose concentrations as well as maximum values of glycosylated haemoglobin were significantly lower during the interaction periods compared with control periods, whereas mean and minimum activities of alanine amino transferase and gamma-glutamyl transferase were higher. The minimum fasting plasma glucose values were more often below the target range in patients with potential interactions. The sulphonylurea dose did not differ significantly between patients who were or were not concomitantly treated with a potentially interacting drug.

Ten trials including 6,701 patients were analyzed. Compared with placebo, canagliflozin produced absolute reductions in glycated hemoglobin A1c levels when used as monotherapy (weighted mean difference (WMD) -1.08%, 95% confidence interval (CI) [-1.25 to -0.90], p < 0.00001) or add-on treatment (WMD -0.73%, 95%CI [-0.84 to -0.61], p < 0.00001). When compared with other active comparators, canagliflozin significantly reduced HbA1c by -0.21% (WMD, 95%CI [-0.33 to -0.08], p = 0.001). Canagliflozin led to greater body weight loss (vs. placebo, WMD -2.81 kg, 95%CI [-3.26 to -2.37]; vs. active comparators, WMD -3.49 kg, 95%CI [-4.86 to -2.12]). Hypoglycemia with canagliflozin was similar to placebo or sitagliptin, and was lower than glimepiride (risk ratio (RR) 0.15, 95%CI [0.10 to 0.22]). Genital tract infections were more common with canagliflozin (vs. placebo, RR 3.76, 95%CI [2.23 to 6.35]; vs. active comparators, RR 4.95, 95%CI [3.25 to 7.52]). Similar incidences of urinary tract infections were noted with canagliflozin compared with control groups.
In this randomized, open-label parallel study, twice-daily biphasic insulin aspart 30 (30% soluble and 70% protaminated insulin aspart; BIAsp 30) plus metformin (met) was compared with once-daily insulin glargine (glarg) plus glimepiride (glim) in 255 insulin-naïve patients (131 male; mean+/-SD age, 61.2+/-9.1 years). Mean baseline HbA (1c) (+/-SD) was 9.2+/-1.4% and 8.9+/-1.3% for BIAsp 30 plus met ( N=128) and glarg plus glim ( N=127), respectively ( P=0.0747). Primary endpoint was the difference in absolute change in HbA (1c) between groups after 26 weeks of treatment.
