Diabetes is a metabolic disorder associated with either improper functioning of the beta-cells or wherein cells fail to use insulin properly. Insulin, the principal hormone regulates uptake of glucose from the blood into most of the cells except central nervous system. Therefore, deficiency of insulin or the insensitivity of its receptors plays a key role in all forms of diabetes. In the present work, attempt has been made to find out plant sources which show anti hyperglycaemic activity (AhG) (i.e. compounds that bring down the blood glucose level in the body). Ayurvedic plants showing AhG activity formed the basis of our study by using the platform of Computer Aided Drug Designing (CADD). Among 600 plants showing AhG activity, 500 compounds were selected and screened, out of which 243 compounds showed drug likeness property that can be used as therapeutic ligand/drug. Initial screening of such compounds was done based on their drug likeness or biochemical properties. Dynamic interaction of these molecules was captured through Protein-Ligand study. It also gave an insight of the binding pockets involved. Bench marking of all the parameters were done using the diabetic inhibitor drug, Glipizide. Pharmacokinetic studies of the compounds such as Aloins, Capparisine, Funiculosin and Rhein exhibited less toxicity on various levels of the body. As a conclusion these ligands can lay a foundation for a better anti-diabetic therapy.

The data from three clinical trials are presented, comparing the efficacy of different sulfonylureas in the treatment of type II diabetes. In a multicenter study, gliclazide improved control in 49% of patients who had failed on other drugs. When five groups of type II diabetic patients were treated concurrently with five randomly allocated different sulfonylureas over 1 year, the percentage of patients achieving normal HbA1 levels was best with gliclazide (80%) and glibenclamide (74%), when compared with chlorpropamide (17%), glipizide (40%), and gliquidone (40%). Secondary failure rate over 5 years was assessed in 248 type II diabetic patients randomly allocated to three different sulfonylureas and found to be lowest with gliclazide (7%) compared with glibenclamide (17.9%): p < 0.1) and glipizide (25.6%: p < 0.005). The incidence of hypoglycemia was significantly higher with glibenclamide than with gliclazide (p < 0.05). The differences in efficacy and secondary failure rate between sulfonylureas may be related to the mechanism of insulin release from the beta-cell and the more physiological action of gliclazide could partly explain this. These trials suggest that gliclazide is a potent sulfonylurea with a low rate of secondary failure and a low incidence of side effects and may be a better choice in long-term sulfonylurea therapy.

Arginine 352 (R352) in the sixth transmembrane domain of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) previously was reported to form an anion/cation selectivity filter and to provide positive charge in the intracellular vestibule. However, mutations at this site have nonspecific effects, such as inducing susceptibility of endogenous cysteines to chemical modification. We hypothesized that R352 stabilizes channel structure and that charge-destroying mutations at this site disrupt pore architecture, with multiple consequences. We tested the effects of mutations at R352 on conductance, anion selectivity and block by the sulfonylurea drug glipizide, using recordings of wild-type and mutant channels. Charge-altering mutations at R352 destabilized the open state and altered both selectivity and block. In contrast, R352K-CFTR was similar to wild-type. Full conductance state amplitude was similar to that of wild-type CFTR in all mutants except R352E, suggesting that R352 does not itself form an anion coordination site. In an attempt to identify an acidic residue that may interact with R352, we found that permeation properties were similarly affected by charge-reversing mutations at D993. Wild-type-like properties were rescued in R352E/D993R-CFTR, suggesting that R352 and D993 in the wild-type channel may interact to stabilize pore architecture. Finally, R352A-CFTR was sensitive to modification by externally applied MTSEA+, while wild-type and R352E/D993R-CFTR were not. These data suggest that R352 plays an important structural role in CFTR, perhaps reflecting its involvement in forming a salt bridge with residue D993.

All three drugs were equally effective on the total prandial insulin secretion (area under the curve [AUC] -15 to 240 min). However, clear differences were noted in the early insulin secretion (AUC -15 to 30 min); both repaglinide and glipizide increased secretion in nondiabetic subjects by approximately 61 and 34%, respectively, compared with placebo. In the diabetic patients, the difference versus placebo was 37 and 47%, respectively. The difference between glipizide and glibenclamide reached significance in both groups of subjects, whereas repaglinide was more effective than glibenclamide only in the healthy nondiabetic subject group. All three drugs were effective in decreasing total glucose AUC in the nondiabetic and diabetic population. In the nondiabetic subjects, however, repaglinide was significantly more effective than glibenclamide. The differences disappeared in the diabetic subjects, probably as a result of increased prevalence of insulin resistance in this group.

After 12 weeks, mean (+/-SE) HbA1c and fasting blood glucose levels decreased with active therapy (glipizide GITS) vs placebo (7.5% 0.1% vs 9.3%+/-0.1% and 7.0+/-0.1 mmol/L [126+/-2 mg/dL] vs 9.3+/-0.2 mmol/L [168+/-4 mg/ dL], respectively; P<.001). Quality-of-life treatment differences (SD units) for symptom distress (+0.59; P<.001), general perceived health (+0.36; P= .004), cognitive functioning (+0.34; P=.005), and the overall visual analog scale (VAS) (+0.24; P=.04) were significantly more favorable for active therapy. Subscales of acuity (+0.38; P=.002), VAS emotional health (+0.35; P=.003), general health (+0.27; P=.01), sleep (+0.26; P=.04), depression (+0.25; P=.05), disorientation and detachment (+0.23; P= .05), and vitality (+0.22; P=.04) were most affected. Favorable health economic outcomes for glipizide GITS included higher retained employment (97% vs 85%; P<.001), greater productive capacity (99% vs 87%; P<.001), less absenteeism (losses = $24 vs $115 per worker per month; P<.001), fewer bed-days (losses = $1539 vs $1843 per 1000 person-days; P=.05), and fewer restricted-activity days (losses = $2660 vs $4275 per 1000 person-days; P=.01).

Long-term trial extensions suggested that effects were maintained over time. Data on canagliflozin are currently available from only one paper. Costs of the drugs are not known so cost-effectiveness cannot be assessed. More data on safety are needed, with the Food and Drug Administration having concerns about breast and bladder cancers.

Many patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) with inadequate long-term blood glucose control with sulfonylurea or metformin monotherapy require additional treatment. The synergistic effects of combining glipizide with metformin on glucose control may be realized by treating the primary effects of type 2 DM, impaired insulin secretion, and insulin resistance.

glucotrol 10 mg

Six well controlled Type 2 diabetics who had received glipizide therapy ranging from 5 mg to 30 mg daily for at least the previous 2 months were studied. On Days 1 and 15 nifedipine 20 mg or placebo respectively were given in a random crossover design after an overnight fast and with the morning dose of glipizide. Nifedipine did not influence the disposition of glipizide since there was no significant alteration in the maximum concentration, time to peak plasma concentration, elimination half-life or area under the curve. Neither did it have a major effect on plasma glucose or insulin although there was an early preprandial decrease in insulin level which reached significance at 1 h only (22.66 v 18.50 mIU/l).

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.

The aim of this paper was to report the case of type 2 diabetes and significant insulin resistance that improved dramatically after removal of a pheochromocytoma in a liver transplant recipient , and to provide a review of the relevant literature. We describe the clinical presentation, diagnostic results and management of the patient. In addition, we performed a PubMed search for related English language articles, to provide an overview of the pertinent literature. A 53 year old woman with a history of an orthotopic liver transplantation and insulin-requiring type 2 diabetes was admitted to the hospital with fever, diaphoresis, tachycardia and hypertension. A pheochromocytoma was diagnosed and removed. The patient subsequently developed hypoglycemia and required no further insulin therapy. Pheochromocytomas have been described to lead to hyperglycemia and diabetes, due to the suppression of insulin release and increased insulin resistance. Furthermore, a review of the literature revealed only 3 other reported cases of pheochromocytomas in organ transplant recipients. None of these pheochromocytomas were believed to have occurred de novo after transplantation. This is the first report of a pheochromocytoma in a liver transplant recipient and possibly the first case of a de novo pheochromocytoma in any organ transplant recipient. Moreover, this case showcases pheochromocytomas as a rare cause of diabetes mellitus.

A system that can deliver multi-drugs at a prolonged rate is very important to the treatment of various chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma, and heart disease. Two controlled-release systems, which exhibited similar release profiles of metformin and glipizide, i.e., elementary osmotic pump tablets (EOP) and bilayer hydrophilic matrix tablet (BT), were designed. The effects of pH and hydrodynamic conditions on drug release from two formulations were investigated. It was found that both drug releases from EOP were not sensitive to dissolution media pH and hydrodynamics change, while the release of glipizide from BT was influenced by the stirring rate. Moreover, in vivo evaluation was performed, relative to the equivalent dose of conventional metformin tablet and glipizide tablet, by a three-crossover study in six Beagle dogs. Cumulative percent input in vivo was compared to in vitro release profiles. The linear correlations of metformin and glipizide between fraction absorbed in vivo and fraction dissolved in vitro were established for EOP-a true zero-order release formula, whereas only nonlinear correlations were obtained for BT. In conclusion, drug release from EOP was both independent of in vitro and in vivo conditions, where the best sustained release effect was achieved, whereas the in vitro dissolution test employed for BT needed to be further optimized to be biorelevant.

Oral hypoglycaemic agents and insulin therapy treated patients achieved adequate glycemic control and the effects on circulating and muscle inflammatory biomarkers were similar, but only oral hypoglycaemic agents improved insulin sensitivity, vascular function and carotid intimal media thickness. These findings in a small sample suggest that the use of oral hypoglycaemic agents provides additional benefits to patients with T2DM.

A 49-year-old man with a 1-month history of episodic, severe abdominal pain sought medical attention. The patient's history was remarkable for type II diabetes, for which glipizide therapy had been initiated 2 months earlier. No other medications were being taken at the time the paroxysms of pain began. During the episodes of pain, both examination of the abdomen and abdominal roentgenograms revealed normal findings. Initial assessment, including ultrasonography and computed tomographic scanning of the abdomen, upper gastrointestinal and colon roentgenograms, and esophagogastroduodenoscopy, revealed no cause of the pain. Empiric trials of famotidine, sucralfate, and antacids failed to relieve the pain. Both urine and fecal specimens collected after an attack demonstrated substantially increased coproporphyrins. The glipizide regimen was discontinued; 2 months later, the stool coproporphyrins had decreased to normal levels. At follow-up more than 1 year later, the patient had had no recurrence of abdominal pain. Although other orally administered hypoglycemic agents and other sulfa compounds have been reported to precipitate acute attacks of porphyria, to our knowledge this is the first such case associated with glipizide. We suggest that glipizide be added to the list of medications to be avoided in patients with porphyria.

A selective stability-indicating HPLC-UV method for simultaneous determination of glipizide and four impurities (DPs I-IV) formed under hydrolytic conditions was developed and validated. The drug and impurities were resolved on an XTerra C18 column (250 x 4.5 mm id) in a single gradient run using buffer (0.005 M KH2PO4; pH 3.0)-methanol (60 + 40, v/v; mobile phase A) and (20 + 80, v/v; mobile phase B) at a flow rate of 0.5 mL/min with 230 nm detection wavelength. The method was linear across concentration ranges of 0.2-100, 0.1-100, 0.5-100, 0.2-100, and 0.1-50 microg/mL for glipizide and DPs I-IV, respectively. The RSD for intraday and interday precision for the drug and impurities was < 1 and < 1.2%, respectively. Satisfactory recoveries (96.58-99.97%) of each of the three concentrations selected across the linearity range of each analyte were obtained, proving the method was sufficiently accurate. The LOD was 0.07, 0.05, 0.16, 0.08, and 0.05 microg/mL and the LOQ was 0.20, 0.14, 0.50, 0.23, and 0.14 microg/mL for the drug and DPs I-IV, respectively. Each peak was resolved with resolution of > 2 from the nearest peak. Insignificant changes in retention time (< 4%) and calculated amount (< 1.65%) of drug and each impurity upon small but deliberate changes in various chromatographic parameters were observed, suggesting the method was robust. The method was applied successfully to stability testing of glipizide tablets.

Two cross-over studies were carried out in 23 patients with Type 2 diabetes, to examine whether glipizide, a potent sulphonylurea with fast and complete absorption and rapid elimination (t1/2 less than 5 h), can be given once-daily without loss of therapeutic effect. In both studies, patients were randomly assigned to an initial dose of 7.5 mg once daily or 2.5 mg three-times daily, which was increased to 15 mg o.d. or 5 mg t.i.d. if the fasting plasma glucose remained over 10 mmol/l on the lower dosage. In Study 1 (n = 11), administration once a day before breakfast was compared with intake before breakfast, lunch and early dinner (5 p.m.) and in Study 2 (n = 12) the comparison was between intake once-daily before breakfast and dosing before breakfast, lunch, and at bedtime (10 p.m.). Neither the 24-hour urinary glucose excretion nor HbA1, fasting plasma glucose, insulin or C-peptide levels differed between the once and three times daily administration with the third dose given before early dinner. The nadir plasma levels of glipizide were not significantly different and were often too low to be detected. Postponing the third dose until 10 p.m. did not produce any improvement in HbA1 or in fasting plasma glucose, insulin or C-peptide. The mean nadir glipizide levels following this schedule were twice as high as those after once-daily administration. As expected, the plasma glipizide after breakfast was higher when the whole dose was taken before breakfast than when it was divided. The corresponding plasma level of insulin was higher and that of plasma glucose was lower.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Thirty-four adults with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus were randomly assigned to receive either oral glyburide or oral glipizide in a multicenter comparative trial. Fasting blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) were assessed at the beginning of the titration phase, the beginning of maintenance therapy, and the end of maintenance therapy. Maintenance therapy lasted approximately 3 months. The initial mean total dose of glyburide (5.4 mg) was significantly lower than that of glipizide (10.6 mg) (P = 0.04) and remained significantly lower at the beginning of maintenance therapy (7.8 mg versus 15.3 mg; P < 0.01) and at the end of the trial (10 mg versus 16.8 mg; P = 0.05). Although significant differences were not detected for fasting blood glucose or HbA1c, patients received higher total doses of glipizide compared with glyburide at the middle and final evaluations to maintain the fasting blood glucose between 3.9 and 10 mmol/L and HbA1c at < 9%. No serious adverse reactions were observed in any patient. These results indicate that doses of glipizide required to maintain blood glucose between 3.9 and 10 mmol/L and HbA1c at < 9% increased over time. Seventy-five percent of patients receiving glyburide were controlled with once-daily dosing compared with 29.4% of those treated with glipizide. Both glyburide and glipizide provide safe and effective treatment for patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, but more patients will benefit from once-daily therapy with glyburide.

Glipizide is a second generation sulphonylurea agent that is available in a Gastrointestinal Therapeutic System (GITS) extended-release formulation. Glipizide GITS provides more stable plasma drug concentrations than the immediate-release formulation and the once-daily regimen may optimise patient compliance. In patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, glipizide GITS is at least as effective as the immediate-release formulation of glipizide in providing glycaemic control, and may have a greater effect on fasting plasma glucose levels. Any therapeutic advantage over other buy glucotrol online antidiabetic agents remains to be established, but in a preliminary report (n = 40) glipizide GITS provided better glycaemic control and produced less fasting insulinaemia than glibenclamide (glyburide). The incidence of hypoglycaemic symptoms with glipizide GITS is low (< or = 3%). Quality of life was improved compared with baseline after 12 weeks' treatment with glipizide GITS 5 to 20 mg/day plus diet in a US double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in 569 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Hyperglycaemic symptom-related distress decreased with glipizide GITS treatment, while hypoglycaemic symptom-related distress was not significantly increased compared with placebo plus diet. Quality of life during glipizide GITS treatment has not been compared with that during treatment with other antidiabetic agents. Monthly productivity losses related to absenteeism were $US91 (1995 values) per patient lower in the glipizide GITS group compared with the placebo group in the latter prospective study. Productivity parameters improved slightly or did not change significantly in the glipizide GITS group, but deteriorated in the placebo group. Differences in direct healthcare costs between groups were small and not comprehensively reported. Glipizide GITS was the least costly strategy for first-line therapy in a US cost-of-treatment model of the first 3 years after diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus. The total per-patient cost was $US4867 with glipizide GITS, $US5196 with metformin and $US5249 with acarbose (1996/1997 values). Monthly drug acquisition costs were lower, and glycosylated haemoglobin levels and patient compliance were improved, after formulary conversion from the immediate-release to the GITS formulation of glipizide in a US single-hospital retrospective analysis.

Sustained release capsule formulations based on three components, drug, water-soluble polymer, and water-insoluble fatty acid, were developed. Theophylline, acetaminophen, and glipizide, representing a wide spectrum of aqueous solubility, were used as model drugs. Povidone and hydroxypropyl cellulose were selected as water-soluble polymers. Stearic acid and lauric acid were selected as water-insoluble fatty acids. Fatty acid, polymer, and drug mixture was filled into size #0 gelatin capsules and heated for 2 h at 50 °C. The drug particles were trapped into molten fatty acid and released at a controlled rate through pores created by the water-soluble polymer when capsules were exposed to an aqueous dissolution medium. Manipulation of the formulation components enabled release rates of buy glucotrol online glipizide and theophylline capsules to be similar to commercial Glucotrol XL tablets and Theo-24 capsules, respectively. The capsules also exhibited satisfactory dissolution stability after exposure to 30 °C/60% relative humidity (RH) in open Petri dishes and to 40 °C/75% RH in closed high-density polyethylene bottles. A computational fluid dynamic-based model was developed to quantitatively describe the drug transport in the capsule matrix and the drug release process. The simulation results showed a diffusion-controlled release mechanism from these capsules.

Obesity and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) are risk factors for non insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM buy glucotrol online ) and for ischemic heart disease. Long term treatment of IGT subjects with diet and tolbutamide prevents progression of IGT to NIDDM. We have evaluated the lowest dose of glipizide, a second-generation sulfonylurea, able to improve glucose tolerance in response to oral glucose in 31 obese subjects, 12 with NIDDM, 9 with IGT and 10 with normal glucose tolerance (NGT). All subjects underwent four OGTTs, preceded by placebo and by different doses of glipizide (0.5, 1.0, 2.5 mg). Glucose tolerance was progressively improved by increasing glipizide doses in all groups, probably by peripheral mechanism and by enhanced insulin release.

This study examined the physicochemical-pharmacokinetic relationships for the sulphonylureas in the perfused rat pancreas buy glucotrol online and liver. Multiple indicator dilution studies were conducted with bolus injections of tolbutamide, chlorpropamide, gliclazide, glipizide, glibenclamide and glimepiride, and a reference marker albumin, in the perfused pancreas and liver. Individual solute pharmacokinetics were analysed using nonparametric moment analysis and nonlinear regression assuming a physiologically based pharmacokinetic model. All solutes had similar shaped outflow concentration-time profiles in both the pancreas and liver, but varied in extraction. Negligible drug extraction was evident in the pancreas. Hepatic extraction ranged from 0.03 (tolbutamide) to 0.52 (glibenclamide) and could be related to solute lipophilicity and perfusate protein binding. The sulphonylurea mean transit times in both the pancreas and liver varied four- and ninefold respectively and were related to the lipophilicity and perfusate protein binding of the drug. The permeability surface area product of sulphonylureas from the perfusate into the organs were greater in the liver and were mainly determined by lipophilicity (pancreas, r2 = 0.89; liver, r2 = 0.80). The distribution of the sulphonylureas in both the perfused pancreas and perfused liver was dependent on their lipophilicity and perfusate protein binding.

Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a highly toxic mycotoxin found worldwide in cereals, foods, animal feeds and different drinks. Based on previous studies, OTA is one of the major causes buy glucotrol online of the chronic tubulointerstitial nephropathy known as Balkan endemic nephropathy (BEN) and exerts several other adverse effects shown by cell and/or animal models. It is a well-known fact that OTA binds to various albumins with very high affinity. Recently, a few studies suggested that reducing the bound fraction of OTA might reduce its toxicity. Hypothetically, certain drugs can be effective competitors displacing OTA from its albumin complex. Therefore, we examined 13 different drug molecules to determine their competing abilities to displace OTA from human serum albumin (HSA). Competitors and ineffective chemicals were identified with a steady-state fluorescence polarization-based method. After characterization the competitive abilities of individual drugs, drug pairs were formed and their displacing activity were tested in OTA-HSA system. Indometacin, phenylbutazone, warfarin and furosemide showed the highest competing capacity but ibuprofen, glipizide and simvastatin represented detectable interaction too. Investigations of drug pairs raised the possibility of the presence of diverse binding sites of competing drugs. Apart from the chemical information obtained in our model, this explorative research might initiate future designs for epidemiologic studies to gain further in vivo evidence of long-term (potentially protective) effects of competing drugs administered to human patients.

The data in this report provide strong evidence that blood CMS is a valuable small volume blood sampling approach for rats and that it provides results for test compound concentrations that are equivalent to those obtained from traditional whole blood sampling. The data also suggest that for some compounds, the concentration-time profile that is obtained for a test compound based on sampling from a rat tail vein may be different from that obtained from rat JVC sampling. In some cases, this shift in the concentration-time profile will result in different PK parameters for the test compound. Based on these observations, it is recommended that a consistent blood sampling method should be used for serial microsampling in discovery rat PK studies when testing multiple new chemical entities. If the rat tail vein sampling method is selected for PK screening, then conducting a bridging study on the lead compound is recommended to confirm that the rat PK obtained from JVC sampling is comparable to Bystolic Generic Substitute the tail-vein sampling.

Despite extensive clinical experience with second-generation oral hypoglycemic agents, the relative dosing equivalence of glyburide and glipizide remains controversial. A prospective survey was conducted to determine the feasibility and cost of converting noninsulin-dependent diabetic patients from glipizide to glyburide. A total of 211 patients previously stabilized on glipizide were converted to glyburide and returned to their respective clinics at least once during the following six months. The mean daily dose (+/- SD) of glipizide before conversion was 18.7 +/- 12.32 mg; the mean daily dose of glyburide after seven months was 9.9 +/- 6.52 mg (P less than 0.001, paired t test). Glyburide was well Amaryl 2mg Tab tolerated. The conversion program appeared to be successful and resulted in a 47% reduction in the mean daily dose after conversion from glipizide to glyburide, which, in turn, conferred a 43% savings in the projected yearly expenditures for second-generation oral hypoglycemics.

Glipizide microparticles made with Eudragit (RS 100 and RL 100), prepared by emulsion solvent evaporation technique were evaluated for various in-vitro properties viz. encapsulation efficiency, particle size and surface morphology, drug release pattern and in-vivo hypoglycaemic activity. The optimized formulation parameters were used to prepare smooth and spherical microparticles (2-32 microm) with higher entrapment efficiency (67-89%). Drug release patterns of glipizide microparticles of Eudragit RS 100 and Eudragit RL 100 Evista Osteoporosis Reviews with drug-to-polymer ratio of 1 : 4 (i.e. EGM14 and ELGM14) have shown gradual and extended release for 24 h with cumulative release of glipizide to the extent of 72.3% and 83.9%, respectively. However, EGM14 showed a significant in-vivo hypoglycaemic effect up to 12 h in rabbits while ELGM14 showed for 9 h. Hence, glipizide microparticles of Eudragit RS 100 (glipizide: polymer 1 : 4) is better suited for oral sustained release formulation.

Extrapancreatic activity of the sulfonylurea, glipizide, was evaluated in the neonatal streptozotocin-induced rat model of noninsulin-dependent diabetes. Two day old Wistar rats were given a bolus of streptozotocin (90 mg/kg i.p.) to cause noninsulin-dependent diabetes; these animals became severely glucose intolerant and eventually developed a cardiomyopathy characterized by reduced heart rate, contractility Nexium Tab 20mg and cardiac output. Male littermates injected with citrate buffer served as nondiabetic controls. At four weeks of age, the nondiabetic and NIDD rats were administered by gavage either glipizide (2.5 mg/kg) or the methyl cellulose vehicle. Throughout the treatment protocol, no difference in the degree of glucose intolerance was observed between the glipizide-treated and vehicle-treated animals. Glipizide therapy also was ineffective in improving plasma insulin levels, which were significantly depressed in the diabetic group. Yet, animals treated with glipizide for one year exhibited improved myocardial contractile function relative to the vehicle-fed or ad lib fed diabetic animals. Heart rate was significantly elevated and there was a tendency for both the rate of relaxation and contractility to be elevated in sulfonylurea-treated group. Glipizide also reduced the degree of insulin resistance in the heart. Since these changes occur in the absence of changes in glucose tolerance or insulin levels, the heart appears to be very sensitive to the direct effects of the sulfonylureas.

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the antidiabetic and antihyperlipidemic activities of Allopolyherbal formulation (APHF) consisting of combinations of three well known medicinal plants used in traditional medicines (Trigonella foenum graceum, Momordica charantia, Aegle marmelos) and synthetic oral hypoglycaemic drug (Glipizide-GL). The optimized combination of lyophilized hydro-alcoholic extracts of drugs was 2:2:1 using OGTT model. The optimized PHF was simultaneously administered with GL and optimized using OGTT model in diabetic rats and further studied in STZ-induced diabetic rats for 21 days. The results (serum glucose level, lipid profile, hepatic enzymes and body weight) were compared with the standard drug GL (10 mg/kg body wt). The optimized APHF Astelin Buy Online (500+5 mg/kg body wt) has shown significant antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic activities. The results were comparable with the standard; even better than the GL (10 mg/kg body wt) alone. The proposed hypothesis has reduced the no. of drug components from eight to three and dose almost 50% of both PHF and GL which fulfil the FDA requirements for export. Thus the developed APHF will be an ideal alternative for the existing hypoglycemic formulations in the market with an additional advantage of hypolipidemic effect and minimizing the cardiovascular risk factors associated with diabetes.

Wolfram syndrome 1 is a very rare monogenic disease resulting in a complex of disorders including diabetes mellitus. Up to now, insulin has been used to treat these patients. Some of Voltaren User Reviews the monogenic forms of diabetes respond preferentially to sulphonylurea preparations. The aim of the current study was to elucidate whether exenatide, a GLP-1 receptor agonist, and glipizide, a sulphonylurea, are effective in a mouse model of Wolfram syndrome 1. Wolframin-deficient mice were used to test the effect of insulin secretagogues. Wolframin-deficient mice had nearly normal fasting glucose levels but developed hyperglycaemia after glucose challenge. Exenatide in a dose of 10 μg/kg lowered the blood glucose level in both wild-type and wolframin-deficient mice when administered during a nonfasted state and during the intraperitoneal glucose tolerance test. Glipizide (0.6 or 2 mg/kg) was not able to reduce the glucose level in wolframin-deficient animals. In contrast to other groups, wolframin-deficient mice had a lower insulin-to-glucose ratio during the intraperitoneal glucose tolerance test, indicating impaired insulin secretion. Exenatide increased the insulin-to-glucose ratio irrespective of genotype, demonstrating the ability to correct the impaired insulin secretion caused by wolframin deficiency. We conclude that GLP-1 agonists may have potential in the treatment of Wolfram syndrome-related diabetes.

The aim of this study was to examine insulin and glucagon secretory patterns in successfully transplanted spontaneously diabetic BB/Wor dp rats. Diabetic, BB/Wor dp rats received abdominal, intratesticular islet grafts of MHC-compatible BB/Wor dr donor rats without immunosuppression. After a period of 74 +/- 15 days of normoglycemia, they were given the following challenges: 1) glucose, by mouth, 2) a single oral dose of glipizide, with glucose, and 3) arginine, by iv infusion. The pertinent results included the mean fasting plasma glucose levels of control, Sprague-Dawley (C), of transplanted BB/Wor dp (T), and nontransplanted, insulin treated, diabetic BB/Wor dp (D), and they were, respectively, 97 +/- 4 mg/dl, 110 +/- 3 mg/dl, and 350 +/- 40 mg/dl. Fasting plasma insulin levels in C and T rats were 21.9 +/- 3 microU/ml, and 20.4 +/- 2 microU/ml, respectively. Fasting plasma glucagon levels in C, T, and D, were 37.8 +/- 5.7 pg/ml, 43.4 +/- 4.6 pg/ml, and 47.4 +/- 4.9 pg/ml, respectively. During oral glucose tolerance test, the pattern of insulin secretion in the C and T rats was identical with a peak attained at 15 min. Glucose caused a 70% suppression of plasma glucagon levels in C rats (P less than 0.01); T rats suppressed 14%, but this was not statistically significant; D rats failed to suppress. Glipizide plus glucose caused an improved glucose tolerance in T rats without significantly affecting insulin levels. In the same rats, glipizide resulted in a significant suppression of glucagon compared with levels in the presence of glucose alone. Arginine caused a minimal release of insulin in T rats and a major glucagon secretory response in D rats. Pancreatic glucagon content was significantly (P less than 0.03) lower in C and T, compared with D rats. Furthermore, the transplanted testes of T contained substantial amounts of glucagon. In summary, these data suggest that grafted testes in spontaneously diabetic BB/Wor dp rats contain both beta and alpha-cells and that these cells have the capacity to respond to specific secretagogues independently.
