Type 2 diabetes is a systemic metabolic disease with significant morbidity and mortality due to damaging blood vessels. Increased blood sugar level is a hallmark of diabetes and is an contributes to the development of many of its complications. Multiple defects, e.g. impaired insulin secretion and impaired insulin action, contribute to the development of the disease. The aim of this study is to test the efficacy and durability of combination of drugs which correct the defects that lead to the development of diabetes on achieving adequate and durable control of blood sugar levels. Achieving adequate and durable control of blood sugar will prevent many of diabetes complications.

This study will compare the efficacy and safety of exenatide versus placebo in adults whose diabetes is not fully controlled by insulin glargine with or without metformin and/or pioglitazo...
This study investigated a 4-week adjunctive therapy of either a GLP-1 analog (exenatide), or a DPP-4 inhibitor (sitagliptin), given to a basal insulin analog (insulin glargine), and their ...
The purpose of this study is to determine the liver safety of pioglitazone, once daily (QD), versus glyburide taken with metformin and insulin.
This Phase 3, open-label, multicenter study is designed to compare the effects of exenatide and insulin glargine (Lantus® injection) on beta-cell function in patients with type 2 diabetes...
A pragmatic, comparative effectiveness trial of glyburide versus metformin.
Diabetes mellitus is one of the most prevalent metabolic diseases globally and it is increasing in prevalence. It is one of the most expensive diseases with respect to total health care costs per pati...
Exenatide is a new antidiabetic glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist. In addition to its hypoglycemic effect, exenatide may have a potential protective benefit on vascular endothelial function. Th...
Metformin is the first line management for patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Metformin-induced lactic acidosis (MALA) is a severe side effect of metformin in high doses. However, there have no...
Diabetes is a frequent condition in pregnancy and achieving adequate glycemic control is of paramount importance. Insulin treatment is the gold standard, oral agents are more attractive, but their saf...
Use of oral agents to treat gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) remains controversial. Recent recommendations from the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine (SMFM) assert that metformin may be a safe fi...
A biguanide hypoglycemic agent used in the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus not responding to dietary modification. Metformin improves glycemic control by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing intestinal absorption of glucose. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p289)
A pharmaceutical preparation of sitagliptin phosphate and metformin hydrochloride that is used in the treatment of TYPE 2 DIABETES.
An analog of GLUCAGON-LIKE PEPTIDE 1 and agonist of the GLUCAGON-LIKE PEPTIDE 1 RECEPTOR that is used as a HYPOGLYCEMIC AGENT and supplemental therapy in the treatment of DIABETES MELLITUS by patients who do not respond to METFORMIN.
A biguanide hypoglycemic agent with actions and uses similar to those of METFORMIN. Although it is generally considered to be associated with an unacceptably high incidence of lactic acidosis, often fatal, it is still available in some countries.
