Arterium Corporation has expanded its blood sugar lowering drug Gliptar
Gliptar helps prevent hyperglycaemia and weight gain in diabetes patients, also preserving and restoring the function of insulin-producing β cells. Besides, it may be prescribed in combination with other drugs. For instance, it may prove indispensable in the case of contraindications and intolerance to first-line drugs (specifically metformin, thiazolidinedione, sulfonylurea) or insufficient therapeutic effect thereof. Gliptar blocks the glucagon-raising enzyme and thereby normalizes metabolic processes instead of boosting insulin secretion that ultimately exhausts the pancreas. The drug has a good tolerability profile and causes no gastrointestinal disturbance, so it may be administered to patients with moderate kidney and liver dysfunction.
Production is handled by Kievmedpreparat.
