Summary of "Pharmacokinetic Properties of Single and Multiple Doses of Ertugliflozin, a Selective Inhibitor of SGLT2, in Healthy Chinese Subjects."

Ertugliflozin, a sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus, prevents renal glucose reabsorption resulting in urinary glucose excretion. This open-label, parallel cohort, randomized study conducted in healthy Chinese adults residing in China assessed the pharmacokinetics, tolerability, and safety of 5 mg and 15 mg of ertugliflozin following single (fasted condition) and multiple-dose (fed condition) administration. Sixteen subjects were randomized and completed the study. Ertugliflozin absorption was rapid, with maximum plasma concentrations observed 1 hour after dosing under fasted conditions and 2 to 4 hours after dosing under fed conditions. Following single- and multiple-dose administration, ertugliflozin exhibited dose-proportional exposures with an apparent mean terminal half-life of approximately 9.5 to 11.9 hours. Steady state was reached after 4 once-daily doses. The accumulation ratio based on the area under the plasma concentration-time curve after multiple-dose administration was approximately 1.3 and 1.2 for ertugliflozin 5 mg and 15 mg, respectively. Ertugliflozin was generally well tolerated following administration of single and multiple oral doses of 5 mg and 15 mg in healthy Chinese subjects. Pharmacokinetic comparison with non-Asian subjects indicated that there are no clinically meaningful racial differences and no dose modification of ertugliflozin is required based on race or body weight.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A selective inhibitor of RECEPTORS, ADRENERGIC ALPHA-2 that has analgesic and sedative properties. MEDETOMIDINE is the other racemic form.

An acquired disorder characterized by recurrent symptoms, referable to multiple organ systems, occurring in response to demonstrable exposure to many chemically unrelated compounds at doses below those established in the general population to cause harmful effects. (Cullen MR. The worker with multiple chemical sensitivities: an overview. Occup Med 1987;2(4):655-61)

An APOBEC deaminase that functions as an inhibitor of RETROVIRIDAE replication and inhibits the mobility of RETROTRANSPOSONS via deaminase-dependent and independent mechanisms. It is selective for SINGLE-STRANDED DNA and does not deaminate double-stranded DNA or single or DOUBLE-STRANDED RNA. It exhibits potent antiviral activity against VIF PROTEIN deficient HIV-1 through the creation of hypermutations in the VIRAL DNA. It also has anti-viral activity against SIMIAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUSES and HEPATITIS B VIRUS.

Rapidly decreasing response to a drug or physiologically active agent after administration of a few doses. In immunology, it is the rapid immunization against the effect of toxic doses of an extract or serum by previous injection of small doses. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A substituted phenylaminoethanol that has beta-2 adrenomimetic properties at very low doses. It is used as a bronchodilator in asthma.
