AIMS Effects of the long acting GLP-1 analogue--liraglutide in subjects with type 2 diabetes. METHODS 144 type 2 diabetic subjects on metformin treatment (1000 mg BID) were randomised to 5 weeks of treatment (double-blind) with metformin plus liraglutide, liraglutide or metformin, or metformin plus glimepiride (open label). The dose of liraglutide was(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effect of dapagliflozin, a sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, on the major components of renal glucose reabsorption (decreased maximum renal glucose reabsorptive capacity [TmG], increased splay, and reduced threshold), using the pancreatic/stepped hyperglycemic clamp (SHC) technique.

I nhaled insulin (INH, Exubera) is under investigation for preprandial treatment of patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes (1–3). This dry-powder insulin formulation is delivered by aerosol, permitting the noninvasive administration of rapid-acting insulin (4). Preliminary studies have shown that INH provides reproducible and effective control of glycemia(More)
This study evaluates the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties of the novel ultra-fast insulin product VIAject, a formulation of human soluble insulin and generally recognised as safe ingredients designed to increase the rate of absorption. We performed five euglycaemic glucose clamps (Biostator; target blood glucose 5 mmol/l) in ten healthy(More)
AIM Canagliflozin is a sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor that is being investigated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). METHODS This was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, 28-day study conducted at two sites, in 29 subjects with T2DM not optimally controlled on insulin and up to one oral(More)
Until now most of the insulin used in developed countries has been manufactured and distributed by a small number of multinational companies. Beyond the established insulin manufacturers, a number of new players have developed insulin manufacturing capacities based on modern biotechnological methods. Because the patents for many of the approved insulin(More)
AIMS Supraphysiologic glucocorticoid activity is well established to cause impaired glucose tolerance and insulin resistance, yet no study has evaluated dose-dependent effects of low-dose prednisone during short-term oral administration. METHODS The objective of this study was to quantify the effects of daily 10 or 25 mg prednisone administration for one(More)
AIM To determine if the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist albiglutide, once weekly, impairs counter-regulatory responses during hypoglycaemia. METHODS We conducted a randomized, double-blind, parallel, placebo-controlled study in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus. A single dose of albiglutide 50 mg (n = 22) or placebo (n = 22) was(More)
INTRODUCTION This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single and multiple ascending-dose study evaluated the pharmacodynamic effects and safety/tolerability of canagliflozin, a sodium glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitor, in patients with type 2 diabetes. METHODS Patients (N = 116) discontinued their antihyperglycemic medications 2 weeks before(More)
We compared intrasubject variability of insulin and glucose profiles after a standardized meal between insulin inhaled via the AERx insulin Diabetes Management System (AERx iDMS, Aradigm Corp., Hayward, CA) and given as a subcutaneous injection. In this single-center, parallel, randomized, open-labeled trial, 17 male, non-smoking patients with type 1(More)
