The glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist liraglutide was approved in 2010 by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an adjunct treatment to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. This article provides insights into the use of pharmacometric analyses for regulatory review with a focus on the(More)
WHAT IS ALREADY KNOWN ABOUT THIS SUBJECT * Patients with Type 2 diabetes are likely to have or to develop renal impairment, which affects the pharmacokinetics of some antidiabetic treatments. * Whether dosing of the once-daily human glucagon-like peptide-1 analogue liraglutide should be modified in patients with renal impairment has not previously been(More)
Insulin aspart is a novel rapid-acting insulin analogue with improved subcutaneous absorption properties when compared with soluble human insulin. Pharmacokinetic studies show an absorption profile with a time to reach peak concentration (t(max)) about half that of human insulin, a peak plasma drug concentration (Cmax) approximately twice as high and(More)
The once-daily human glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analog, liraglutide, was recently shown to provide improved glycemic control in subjects with type 2 diabetes (T2D) compared with exenatide. The aim of this work is to estimate the population pharmacokinetics of liraglutide and make a comparison to the pharmacokinetic profile of exenatide. Pharmacokinetic(More)
OBJECTIVES Liraglutide is a once-daily human GLP-1 analog being developed as a Type 2 diabetes therapy. A dose-finding study in Japanese patients with Type 2 diabetes showed liraglutide to produce dose-dependent decreases in HbA(1C). Studies have also shown that, with stepped dose titration, liraglutide is well tolerated. This double-blind trial in 24(More)
Insulin degludec/liraglutide (IDegLira) is a novel fixed-ratio combination of the basal insulin insulin degludec (IDeg) and liraglutide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 analog. The pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics of IDegLira were assessed versus its components. A single-dose, randomized, 4-period crossover clinical pharmacology study in healthy(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in youth is increasing. Treatment options beyond metformin and insulin are needed. The safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of liraglutide once daily in youth (10-17 years old) with T2D were investigated in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. SUBJECTS AND METHODS(More)
In this single-center, randomized, double-blind, within dose group, placebo-controlled, dose escalation trial, the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, tolerability, and safety of liraglutide were evaluated in 37 healthy Chinese subjects. Subjects were randomized to 1 of 3 dose groups (0.6, 1.2, or 1.8 mg), and within each group, randomized to liraglutide or(More)
Two dose levels of citalopram, 10-30 mg and 20-60 mg, were compared with imipramine, 50-150 mg, in depressed patients treated in general practice. This was a multicentre study carried out in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland. The duration of treatment was 6 weeks with an optional continuation phase of a further 16 weeks. The patients were assessed by(More)
Objective: With the aim to obtain a premixed rapid-acting insulin with a serum insulin profile more closely resembling the endogenous meal-stimulated serum insulin profiles, a 30/70 (rapid/intermediate-acting) premixed suspension of the rapid-acting insulin analogue insulin aspart (BIAsp30) was compared with a similar premixed suspension of biphasic human(More)
