AIMS Remogliflozin etabonate (RE) is the pro-drug of remogliflozin (R), a selective inhibitor of renal sodium-dependent glucose transporter 2 (SGLT2) that improves glucose control via enhanced urinary glucose excretion (UGE). This study evaluated the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of repeated doses of RE in subjects with type 2(More)
BACKGROUND Activation of vascular chymase plays a major role in myointimal hypertrophy after vascular injury by augmenting the production of angiotensin (ANG) II. Because chymase is synthesized mainly in mast cells, we assumed that the chymase-dependent ANG II formation could be downregulated by tranilast, a mast cell-stabilizing antiallergic agent. We have(More)
We studied pharmacologic profiles of KRH-594, dipotassium (Z)-2-[[5-ethyl-3-[2'-(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)biphenyl-4-yl]methyl-1,3,4 -thiadiazolin-2-ylidene]aminocarbonyl]-1-cyclopentenecarb oxylate, a novel angiotensin II (AII)-receptor antagonist. KRH-594 potently displaced specific binding of [125I]-AII from AT1 receptor with a Ki of 0.39 nM in rat liver(More)
Oxcarbazepine is a second-generation antiepileptic drug (AED) with proven efficacy in managing partial epileptic seizures, with or without secondary generalization, in adults and children. The overlap between the underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms of some epilepsy models and neuropathic pain models supports the rationale for using certain AEDs in the(More)
This report describes the in vitro pharmacological properties of dipotassium (Z)-2-[[5-ethyl-3-[2'-(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)biphenyl-4-yl]methyl-1, 3,4-thiadiazolin-2-ylidene]aminocarbonyl]-1-cyclopentenec arboxylate, called KRH-594, a novel angiotensin II (AII) type 1 (AT1) receptor antagonist. We exposed rabbit aortic rings to KRH-594 (0.1 nM) for increasing(More)
Remogliflozin etabonate (RE) is the prodrug of remogliflozin, a selective inhibitor of the renal sodium-dependent glucose transporter 2 (SGLT2), which could increase urine glucose excretion (UGE) and lower plasma glucose in humans. This double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, single-dose, dose-escalation, crossover study is the first human trial(More)
