|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus||Drug: vildagliptin 50 mg bid plus metformin 1500mg (Galvus+Diabex) Drug: metformin 1500mg plus metformin 500mg or 1000mg (Diabex)||Phase 4|
- The progressive nature of T2DM will require the use of combination therapy in many patients over time to achieve and maintain glycemic control. Early combination, compared with maximal dose of monotherapy, could be more effective in lowering glycemia with better tolerability.
- Vildagliptin is a new oral antidiabetic drug acting as a potent and selective inhibitor of dipeptidyl peptidase-4(DPP-4), the enzyme responsible for the rapid degradation of circulating glucagon-like peptide-1. Vildagliptin improves islet function by a mechanism of increasing plasma levels of the active forms of the incretin hormones, GLP-1 and GIP.
- Metformin improves hyperglycemia primarily through its suppression of hepatic gluconeogenesis as well as enhancement of peripheral glucose update. Metformin is the most commonly prescribed first-line antidiabetic drug worldwide, but due to the progressive worsening of blood glucose control during the natural history of type 2 diabetes, combination therapy usually becomes necessary.
- Thus their combination therapy with complimentary action mechanism could be as effective as up titration of monotherapy.
