PINGUIN (Postpartum Intervention in Women With Gestational Diabetes Using Insulin)

2014-08-27 03:17:49 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of the study is to prove the efficacy of the oral intake of vildagliptin in a daily dose of 100 mg in scope of the development of type 2 diabetes in women with insulin dependent gestational diabetes in their last pregnancy not longer than 9 months after birth.

In this randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded clinical phase II study, 140 participants aged 18 years or older and an insulin dependent gestational diabetes in their last pregnancy should be included and treated with vildagliptin or placebo over 24 months, followed by a 12 months observation period. Exclusion criteria are pregnancy and lactation as well as a clinical overt diabetes or islet autoimmunity.

The null hypothesis is that there is no significant difference of diabetes incidence (according to ADA criteria 1997) in both groups.

Primary endpoint is the clinical manifestation of diabetes, secondary endpoints include the improvement of beta cell function (evaluable by C-peptide measurement) and of insulin sensitivity by the treatment with vildagliptin.

A Study to Evaluate the Effects of Vildagliptin on the Insulin Response to Glucose in Subjects With Pre-Diabetes

This is an exploratory study to assess whether vildagliptin, an unapproved drug, can increase insulin secretion in subjects with pre-diabetes who have a defect in the insulin response and ...

Vildagliptin and the Glucagon Response to Hypoglycemia in Insulin-Treated Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

The purpose of this study is to explore whether the novel therapy of type 2 diabetes, vildagliptin, which inhibits dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4), affects glucagon counterregulation during...

A Study to Assess the Effects of DPP-4 Inhibition on Insulin Sensitivity in Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes results when the body does not produce enough insulin and/or is unable to properly use the insulin it makes (insulin resistance). This study was undertaken to assess the e...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Diabetes mellitus induced by PREGNANCY but resolved at the end of pregnancy. It does not include previously diagnosed diabetics who become pregnant (PREGNANCY IN DIABETICS). Gestational diabetes usually develops in late pregnancy when insulin antagonistic hormones peaks leading to INSULIN RESISTANCE; GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; and HYPERGLYCEMIA.

A strain of Rattus norvegicus which is a model for spontaneous insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, INSULIN-DEPENDENT).

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).

A condition of fetal overgrowth leading to a large-for-gestational-age FETUS. It is defined as BIRTH WEIGHT greater than 4,000 grams or above the 90th percentile for population and sex-specific growth curves. It is commonly seen in GESTATIONAL DIABETES; PROLONGED PREGNANCY; and pregnancies complicated by pre-existing diabetes mellitus.
