starlix dosing

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single-dose, 6-period, crossover study conducted in healthy male volunteers aged 18 to 50 years. On 5 occasions, subjects received a single 60-mg tablet of nateglinide at -30, -10, -5, -1, or 40 minutes from the start of a standard metal. Treatment blind was maintained by administration of placebo tablets at all other time points. On the sixth occasion, subjects received placebo tablets at all dosing time points. Each subject received acetaminophen 1 g at the beginning of the standard breakfast on each treatment day as an indicator of the rate of gastric emptying. Plasma samples were collected over a 6-hour period to determine nateglinide, glucose, insulin, and acetaminophen concentrations.

1. The structure activity relationships for the insulin secretagogues N-benzoyl-D-phenylalanine (NBDP) and related compounds were examined at the sulphonylurea receptor level by use of cultured HIT-T15 and mouse pancreatic beta-cells. The affinities of these compounds for the sulphonylurea receptor were compared with their potencies for K(ATP)-channel inhibition. In addition, the effects of cytosolic nucleotides on K(ATP)-channel inhibition by NBDP were investigated. 2. NBDP displayed a dissociation constant for binding to the sulphonylurea receptor (K(D) value) of 11 microM and half-maximally effective concentrations of K(ATP)-channel inhibition (EC50 values) between 2 and 4 microM (in the absence of cytosolic nucleotides or presence of 0.1 mM GDP or 1 mM ADP). 3. In the absence of cytosolic nucleotides or presence of GDP (0.1 mM) maximally effective concentrations of NBDP (0.1-1 mM) reduced K(ATP)-channel activity to 47% and 44% of control, respectively. In the presence of ADP (1 mM), K(ATP)-channel activity was completely suppressed by 0.1 mM NBDP. 4. The L-isomer of N-benzoyl-phenylalanine displayed a 20 fold lower affinity and an 80 fold lower potency than the D-isomer. 5. Introduction of a p-nitro substituent in the D-phenylalanine moiety of NBDP did not decrease lipophilicity but lowered affinity and potency by more than 30 fold. 6. Introduction of a p-amino substituent in the D-phenylalanine moiety of NBDP (N-benzoyl-p-amino-D-phenylalanine, NBADP) reduced lipophilicity and lowered affinity and potency by about 10 fold. This loss of affinity and potency was compensated for by formation of the phenylpropionic acid derivative of NBADP. A similar difference in affinity was observed for the sulphonylurea carbutamide and its phenylpropionic acid derivative. 7. Replacing the benzene ring in the D-phenylalanine moiety of NBDP by a cyclohexyl ring increased lipophilicity, and the K(D) and EC50 values were slightly lower than for NBDP. Exchange of both benzene rings in NBDP by cyclohexyl rings further increased lipophilicity without altering affinity and potency. 8. This study shows that N-acylphenylalanines interact with the sulphonylurea receptor of pancreatic beta-cells in a stereospecific manner. Their potency depends on lipophilic but not aromatic properties of their benzene rings. As observed for sulphonylureas, interaction of N-acylphenylalanines with the sulphonylurea receptor does not induce complete inhibition of K(ATP)-channel activity in the absence of inhibitory cytosolic nucleotides.

Reductions in visceral fat, liver fat, skeletal muscle fat and homeostasis model assessment (HOMA)-R due to weight loss were associated with increased Delta insulin 30 min/Delta glucose 30 min (DeltaI30/DeltaG30), and reduced area under the curve (AUC) for plasma glucose as seen in OGTT results. Results from OGTT showed that nateglinide administration was associated with reductions in plasma glucose AUC, both before and after weight loss. Before weight loss, although there was a significant elevation of DeltaI30/DeltaG30 associated with nateglinide treatment, no major change in the insulin-secreting dynamics after glucose loading was observed. After weight loss, nateglinide administration produced a significant increase in DeltaI30/DeltaG30, with insulin secretion peaking more quickly.

Increased physical activity is known to be beneficial in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), but it is not known whether individuals change their activity levels after T2DM diagnosis. The present Nateglinide and Valsartan in Impaired Glucose Tolerance Outcomes Research (NAVIGATOR) trial, conducted in participants with impaired glucose tolerance at high cardiovascular risk, assessed ambulatory activity annually using research-grade pedometers. Oral glucose tolerance tests were performed annually and repeated to confirm T2DM diagnosis. This observational analysis used general linear models to compare step counts before and after T2DM diagnosis in the 2816 participants with the requisite data. Participants were relatively inactive at baseline, taking a median (interquartile range) of 5488 (3258-8361) steps/day, which decreased after T2DM diagnosis by a mean (s.e.) of 258 (64) steps/day (p < 0.0001); however, after adjusting for background trend for activity, step count after T2DM diagnosis was unchanged [mean (s.e.) of 103 (87) fewer steps/day; p = 0.23]. Awareness of T2DM diagnosis had no impact on the trajectory of activity established before the diagnosis.

This review describes the current knowledge on drug-drug and food-drug interactions with repaglinide and nateglinide. These two meglitinide derivatives, commonly called glinides, have been developed for improving insulin secretion of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. They are increasingly used either in monotherapy or in combination with other oral antihyperglycaemic agents for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Compared with sulfonylureas, glinides have been shown to (i) provide a better control of postprandial hyperglycaemia, (ii) overcome some adverse effects, such as hypoglycaemia, and (iii) have a more favourable safety profile, especially in patients with renal failure. The meal-related timing of administration of glinides and the potential influence of food and meal composition on their bioavailability may be important. In addition, some food components (e.g. grapefruit juice) may cause pharmacokinetic interactions. Because glinides are metabolised via cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 isoenzyme, they are indeed exposed to pharmacokinetic interactions. In addition to CYP3A4, repaglinide is metabolised via CYP2C8, while nateglinide metabolism also involves CYP2C9. Furthermore, both compounds and their metabolites may undergo specialised transport/uptake in the intestine, another source of pharmacokinetic interactions. Clinically relevant drug-drug interactions are those that occur when glinides are administered together with other glucose-lowering agents or compounds widely coadministered to diabetic patients (e.g. lipid-lowering agents), with drugs that are known to induce (risk of lower glinide plasma levels and thus of deterioration of glucose control) or inhibit (risk of higher glinide plasma levels leading to hypoglycaemia) CYP isoenzymes concerned in their metabolism, or with drugs that have a narrow efficacy : toxicity ratio. Pharmacokinetic interactions reported in the literature appear to be more frequent and more important with repaglinide than with nateglinide. Rifampicin (rifampin) reduced repaglinide area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC) by 32-85% while it reduced nateglinide AUC by almost 25%. Reported increases in AUCs with coadministration of drugs inhibiting CYP isoenzymes never exceeded 80% for repaglinide (except with ciclosporin and with gemfibrozil) and 50% for nateglinide. Ciclosporin more than doubled repaglinide AUC (+144%), a finding that should raise caution when using these two drugs in combination. The most impressive pharmacokinetic interaction was reported with combined administration of gemfibrozil (a strong CYP2C8 inhibitor) and repaglinide (8-fold increase in repaglinide AUC). Although no studies have been performed in patients with type 2 diabetes, the latter combination should be avoided in clinical practice.

The interactions of sulfonylureas and a novel anti-diabetic drug, nateglinide, with rat renal organic anion transporter (rOAT1) expressed in Xenopus laevis oocytes were studied. Uptake of p-aminohippurate via rOAT1 was markedly inhibited by glibenclamide and nateglinide, and moderately by chlorpropamide and tolbutamide. The inhibition constant values (K(i)) for chlorpropamide, glibenclamide, tolbutamide and nateglinide were 39.5, 1.6, 55.5 and 9.2 microM, respectively. Kinetic analysis showed that the inhibition of p-aminohippurate uptake by glibenclamide was competitive. Sulfonylureas examined and nateglinide did not show a trans-stimulation effect on [14C]p-aminohippurate efflux from rOAT1-expressing oocytes. There was no stimulation of [3H]glibenclamide uptake via rOAT1. These findings suggested that sulfonylureas and nateglinide interact with rOAT1, but these drugs are not translocated via the transporter.

A series of analogues of N-(cyclohexylcarbonyl)-D-phenylalanine (5) have been synthesized and evaluated for their hypoglycemic activity. Relationships were studied between the activity and the three-dimensional structure of the acyl moiety, which was characterized by high-resolution 1H NMR spectroscopy and MNDO calculations. The role of the carboxyl group of the phenylalanine moiety was also studied by comparing the activities of the enantiomers, the decarboxyl derivative, the esters, and the amides of the phenylalanine derivatives. Thus, the structural requirements for possessing hypoglycemic activity was elucidated and a highly active compound, N-[(trans-4-isopropylcyclohexyl)carbonyl]-D-phenylalanine (13) was obtained, which showed a 20% blood glucose decrease at an oral dose of 1.6 mg/kg in fasted normal mice.

In patients receiving initial CT, HbA(1c) decreased substantially (Delta = -1.6 +/- 0.1%, p < 0.0001 vs. baseline or placebo) from a mean baseline of 8.2 +/- 0.1%, an effect significantly greater than the 0.8% reduction observed with both monotherapies (p < 0.001); whereas, in placebo-treated patients, HbA(1c) increased modestly (Delta = +0.3 +/- 0.1%, p < 0.05) from an identical baseline value. Seventy percent of CT-treated patients achieved a target HbA(1c) of < 7.0%. Both fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and the 2-hour postprandial glucose excursion (PPGE) after a liquid meal challenge decreased by 2.3 mmol/L in patients receiving CT, while the changes from baseline values in FPG and PPGE were +0.2 +/- 0.3 mmol/L and -0.5 +/- 0.2 mmol/L, respectively, in placebo-treated patients.

The recent Nateglinide and Valsartan in Impaired Glucose Tolerance Outcomes Research (NAVIGATOR) trial reported that nateglinide, a non-sulfonylurea insulin secretagogue, failed to prevent progression from impaired glucose tolerance to diabetes. In order to determine the beneficial effect of insulin secretagogues as a class in diabetes prevention, we performed a literature search for randomized controlled studies and review articles on diabetes prevention and use of sulfonylureas, nateglinide, and meglitinide in PubMed and Ovid Medline since 1950. Three studies were identified with none of them reporting success in preventing diabetes, indicating that insulin secretagogues should not be recommended for diabetes prevention.

Monotherapy with nateglinide (120 mg, 3/d) or acarbose (100 mg, 3/d) decreased HbA1c to a similar extent during 12-week treatment. The mean change from baseline to end-point in HbA1c was (-0.90 +/- 0.98)% and (-0.83 +/- 0.81)% in patients receiving nateglinide and acarbose, respectively, with no significant difference between the two groups (P > 0.05). The decrease in fasting plasma glucose (FPG) was similar between nateglinide and acarbose (P > 0.05). The mean change in 2-hour postprandial plasma glucose (PG2h) was (-1.45 +/- 2.74) mmol/L and (-2.20 +/- 2.21) mmol/L in patients receiving nateglinide and acarbose (P = 0.0017). Body weight was significantly decreased in both groups at the end-point (P < 0.05), although the decrease was more with acarbose than nateglinide [(-0.66 +/- 1.79) kg vs (-2.06 +/- 2.00) kg, P = 0.0000]. And the proportion of patients experiencing any presumed drug related adverse events was not significantly different between the two groups.

The United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study has shown that tight glycaemic control significantly reduces microvascular complications in Type 2 diabetes, but the effects on macrovascular complications were less impressive and did not reach statistical significance. Epidemiological studies have shown that post-prandial hyperglycaemia, rather than fasting hyperglycaemia, is more closely related to cardiovascular complications. It is, therefore, possible that previous studies may have overlooked the possible benefits of tight control of post-prandial hyperglycaemia as an important factor in reducing the cardiovascular mortality. Nateglinide is a novel D-phenylalanine derivative that inhibits ATP-sensitive K+ channels in pancreatic beta-cells in the presence of glucose and thereby restores first phase insulin response in patients with Type 2 diabetes. This helps in reducing post-prandial glucose excursion. Combination studies with metformin have shown it to be effective in controlling hyperglycaemia. While metformin reduces the basal plasma glucose, nateglinide helps in controlling post-prandial peaks. Nateglinide provides a new therapeutic option for treating Type 2 diabetes by specifically targeting post-prandial hyperglycaemia.

This study examined the effects of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) on insulin secretion alone and in combination with sulphonylureas or nateglinide, with particular attention to K(ATP) channel-independent insulin secretion. In depolarised cells, GLP-1 significantly augmented glucose-induced K(ATP) channel-independent insulin secretion in a glucose concentration-dependent manner. GLP-1 similarly augmented the K(ATP) channel-independent insulin-releasing effects of tolbutamide, glibenclamide or nateglinide. Downregulation of protein kinase A (PKA)- or protein kinase C (PKC)-signalling pathways in culture revealed that the K(ATP) channel-independent effects of sulphonylureas or nateglinide were critically dependent upon intact PKA and PKC signalling. In contrast, GLP-1 exhibited a reduced but still buy starlix significant insulin-releasing effect following PKA and PKC downregulation, indicating that GLP-1 can modulate K(ATP) channel-independent insulin secretion by protein kinase-dependent and -independent mechanisms. The synergistic insulin-releasing effects of combinatorial GLP-1 and sulphonylurea/nateglinide were lost following PKA- or PKC-desensitisation, despite GLP-1 retaining an insulin-releasing effect, demonstrating that GLP-1 can induce insulin release under conditions where sulphonylureas and nateglinide are no longer effective. Our results provide new insights into the mechanisms of action of GLP-1, and further highlight the promise of GLP-1 or similarly acting analogues alone or in combination with sulphonylureas or meglitinide drugs in type 2 diabetes therapy.

1. The beta-cell K(ATP) channel is composed of two types of subunit - the inward rectifier K(+) channel (Kir6.2) which forms the channel pore, and the sulphonylurea receptor (SUR1), which serves as a regulatory subunit. The N-terminus of Kir6.2 is involved in transduction of sulphonylurea binding into channel closure, and deletion of the N-terminus (Kir6.2DeltaN14) results in functional uncoupling of the two subunits. In this study, we investigate the interaction of the hypoglycaemic agents repaglinide and glibenclamide with SUR1 and the effect of Kir6.2 on this interaction. We further explore how the binding properties of repaglinide and glibenclamide are affected by functional uncoupling of SUR1 and Kir6.2 in Kir6.2DeltaN14/SUR1 channels. All binding experiments are performed on membranes in ATP-free buffer at 37 degrees C. 2. Repaglinide was found to bind with low affinity (K(D)=59+/-16 nM) to SUR1 alone, but with high affinity ( buy starlix increased approximately 150-fold) when SUR1 was co-expressed with Kir6.2 (K(D)=0.42+/-0.03 nM). Glibenclamide, tolbutamide and nateglinide all bound with marginally lower affinity to SUR1 than to Kir6.2/SUR1. 3. Repaglinide bound with low affinity (K(D)=51+/-23 nM) to SUR1 co-expressed with Kir6.2DeltaN14. In contrast, the affinity for glibenclamide, tolbutamide and nateglinide was only mildly changed as compared to wild-type channels. 4. In whole-cell patch-clamp experiments inhibition of Kir6.2DeltaN14/SUR1 currents by both repaglinide and nateglinde is abolished. 5. The results suggest that Kir6.2 causes a conformational change in SUR1 required for high-affinity repaglinide binding, or that the high-affinity repaglinide-binding site includes contributions from both SUR1 and Kir6.2. Glibenclamide, tolbutamide and nateglinide binding appear to involve only SUR1.

Pharmacological therapy for Type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus aims at controlling hyperglycaemia to delay or prevent complications associated with the disease. Most patients with Type 2 diabetes present with both stimulated insulin deficiency and insulin resistance. In general, the former can manifest as postprandial hyperglycaemia and the latter as fasting hyperglycaemia, though a definitive association has not been established. Emerging data show a high failure rate of long-term monotherapy and establishes the significance of mealtime glycaemia and the role of postprandial glucose excursions in the development and progression of vascular complications. To overcome such failures of monotherapy and to address the different underlying defects of the pathology of Type 2 diabetes, a combined therapy of oral antidiabetic agents with complementary modes of action should be considered. Currently used oral antidiabetic agents such as sulphonylureas, biguanides (metformin) and the thiazolidinediones (rosiglitazone, pioglitazone) commonly target fasting hyperglycaemia and have limited additive effects on postprandial glycaemia. In contrast, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors can reduce postprandial buy starlix hyperglycaemia but gastrointestinal side effects restrict their use. The development of new agents to control postprandial glucose excursions could be considered as an additional objective for the management of Type 2 diabetes. To this end new short-acting enhancers of insulin secretion such as repaglinide (benzoic acid derivative) and nateglinide (amino acid derivative) have been developed. The combination of such agents with other complementary modes of action, e.g. an insulin sensitizer, could target better major underlying defects of Type 2 diabetes and thereby provide a better approach for controlling the entire glycaemic risk.

The role of postprandial hyperglycemia (PPHG) in diabetes mellitus is being increasingly recognized. It is known that PPHG contributes to the increased risk of both micro- and macrovascular complications in patients with diabetes mellitus. This review looks at the clinical significance of PPHG and the currently available therapeutic modalities. The causes of PPHG are influenced by many factors which include a rapid flux of glucose from the gut, impaired insulin release, endogenous glucose production by the liver and peripheral insulin resistance. Knowledge of the pathophysiology of PPHG is essential when adopting treatment options to tackle the problem. Although most oral antihyperglycemic agents and insulins lower both fasting and postprandial blood glucose levels, drugs are Trileptal High Dose now available which specifically act to control PPHG. These drugs may be classified based on the site of their action. alpha-Glucosidase inhibitors like acarbose and miglitol attenuate the rate of absorption of sucrose by acting on the luminal enzymes. Adverse effects of these agents are predominantly gastrointestinal. Newer insulin secretagogues have been developed which attempt to mimic the physiological release of insulin and thus ameliorate PPHG. These include third generation sulfonylureas like glimepiride and nonsulfonylurea secretagogues like repaglinide and nateglinide. Rapid-acting insulin analogs, the amino acid sequences of which have been altered such that they have a faster onset of action, help to specifically target PPHG. Pre-mixed formulations of the analogs have also been developed. Finally, drugs under development which hold promise in the management of patients with PPHG include pramlintide, an amylin analog, and glucagon-like peptide-1 and its analogs.

Nateglinide is an oral antidiabetic agent that should be administered 10-30 min before Generic Aciphex Coupons the meal, but it shows low and pH-dependent solubility that may reduce its oral bioavailability. To improve nateglinide dissolution rate, the active was co-milled with three different super-disintegrants or with some hydrophilic excipients, in 1:1, 1:2, and 1:4 drug to carrier ratio (w:w). The three super-disintegrants were crosslinked polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVPC), sodium starch glycolate (SSG) and crosslinked carboxymethyl cellulose (CMCC). The three hydrophilic excipient were amorphous silica (AS), mannitol (M) and Poloxamer (PO). A strong enhancement of drug dissolution rate was obtained from the nateglinide:super-disintegrant co-milled systems in 1:4 ratio, which can be explained by a combination of several factors: an increase in wettability, due to the hydrophilic nature of the carriers, a possible reduction of particle size and a more intimate dispersion of the drug onto the carrier, as a result of the mechanical treatment.

Accurately weighed pure dried (P2O5 as desiccant for 4 h at 80 degrees C in vacuum) fine powder of crystal-type B and H of nateglinide were measured dQ/dT by DSC at heating rate of 10 degrees C. min-1 and temperature between 100 degrees C and 200 degrees C to calculate the enthalpy delta HB and delta HH. Accurately weight a series of uniform mixtures of crystal-type B and H of dried fine powder of nateglinide in different proportions. The enthalpy of the mixtures is measured by DSC as above to calculate the enthalpy (sigma delta Zantac Depression Medication H). Using B% as X, sigma delta H as Y, the regression equation was obtained. According to this equation, the unknown composition of mixed crystal was evaluated by the sigma delta H values. The method was used to control the limitation of crystal-type B of nateglinide by the sigma delta H value of mixture of known composition as reference.

The Nateglinide and Valsartan Impaired Glucose Tolerance Outcomes Research (NAVIGATOR) trial is exploring two pharmacological strategies (nateglinide and valsartan, both alone and in combination) in the prevention of overt diabetes mellitus (DM) and the reduction of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in subjects at high risk for these events. In this analysis, we provide baseline characteristics of the randomized NAVIGATOR study population and contrast them with those from other trials of DM prevention. Key eligibility criteria include impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and impaired fasting glucose (IFG), a history of CVD (in patients aged > or =50 years), and > or =1 cardiovascular risk factor (in patients aged > or =55 years). Baseline demographic characteristics, laboratory findings, cardiovascular risk factors, CVD history, and medication use are described and compared with other trials of DM prevention. The full analysis set of subjects (N = 9306) showed a clustering of risk factors consistent with the metabolic syndrome: high rates of hypertension (77.5%), dyslipidemia (44.7%), increased waist circumference (101.0 cm), and high body mass index (BMI) (47.5% with BMI > or =30 kg/m(2)). A minority of patients had a history of CVD (24.3%); of these, 11.7% had a history of myocardial infarction and most of the remainder had evidence of coronary artery disease. Subjects also had elevated blood pressure (BP) (predominantly systolic) (139.7/82.6 mm Hg), increased serum low-density lipoproteins cholesterol levels (3.27 mmol/L), and borderline elevation of triglyceride levels (1.97 mmol/L). Demographic data, BP, and lipid profiles in NAVIGATOR were similar to those of previous DM prevention trials, which were also based largely on meeting criteria for IGT. Medication use Imodium Dosage Infants at baseline among NAVIGATOR subjects, which frequently included aspirin, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, diuretics, and lipid-lowering agents, reflects enhanced CVD risk. However, little prescribing of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system blockers was observed, likely due to protocol exclusion criteria. In conclusion, the NAVIGATOR study comprises prediabetic subjects who typically have concurrent BP and metabolic disturbances and an enhanced risk of CVD, and are thus at higher risk for cardiovascular events than subjects in previous DM prevention trials.

Hypoglycaemia due to inadvertent use of oral hypoglycaemic agents is a recognised problem, particularly in cases where family members living in the same household are taking similar medications. Possible drug administration errors in residential care homes for the elderly should be investigated, and procedures rectified if confirmed. Abilify Drug Interactions Health care providers should be vigilant to such potential errors, especially in cases of unexplained hypoglycaemia.
