The absorption, disposition, metabolism, and excretion of acarbose (O-4,6-dideoxy-4-[[(1S, 4R, 5S, 6S)-4,5,6-trihydroxy-3- (hydroxymethyl)-2- cyclohexen-1-yl]amino]-a-D-glucopyranosyl- (1----4)-O-a-D-glucopyranosyl- (1----4) -D-glucopyranose, Bay g 5421) have been studied following a single administration of the 14C-labelled compound to rats and dogs via different routes (intravenous, oral, intraduodenal) in the dose range of 2-200 mg.kg-1 as well as to man in a single oral dose of 200 mg… 
Absorption, Elimination, and Metabolism of CS-1036, a Novel α-Amylase Inhibitor in Rats and Monkeys, and the Relationship between Gastrointestinal Distribution and Suppression of Glucose Absorption
TLDR
CS-1036 showed optimal pharmacokinetic profiles: low oral absorption and favorable stability in gastrointestinal lumen, resulting in suppression of postprandial hyperglycemia by α-amylase inhibition in Zucker diabetic fatty rats.
Tissue Distribution and Identification of Radioactivity Components at Elimination Phase after Oral Administration of [14C]CS-1036, an α-Amylase Inhibitor, to Rats
TLDR
Intestinal flora were involved in CS-1036 metabolism and are indicated to be involved in the production of small molecule metabolites, which are the sources for amino acids and fatty acids, from [14C]CS- 1036.
DMD050591 878..887
TLDR
CS-1036 showed optimal pharmacokinetic profiles: low oral absorption and favorable stability in gastrointestinal lumen, resulting in suppression of postprandial hyperglycemia by a-amylase inhibition in Zucker diabetic fatty rats.
Revised Etiologic Classification of Diabetes
TLDR
Serum 1,5-AG is useful for evaluating current glycemic control in shortterm response to voglibose, however, it is underestimated for monitoring the glycemic status and should be used in cooperation with other markers, such as fructosamine.
Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic Relationships of Acarbose
TLDR
The lack of body weight gain or hypoglycaemic effects reported during acarbose treatment may be advantageous for obese or elderly patients, and the reduction in fluctuations of glucose levels throughout the day may help to control type 1 diabetes in patients with ‘brittle diabetes’.
The effect of acarbose on the pharmacokinetics of rosiglitazone
TLDR
Rosiglitazone absorption and time to peak concentration was unaffected by acarbose, and changes in AUC(0–∞) and t1/2 are not likely to be clinically relevant.
Safety Profile of Acarbose, an α-Glucosidase Inhibitor
TLDR
Almost all adverse experiences of acarbose were related to the digestive system and included diarrhoea, flatulence, bloating and nausea, and the adverse experience profile was clinically acceptable.
Alpha-Amylase Inhibitor, CS-1036 Binds to Serum Amylase in a Concentration-Dependent and Saturable Manner
TLDR
From the calculation of the unbound fraction in plasma based on in vitro KD and Bmax, the dose-dependent increase in fu after oral administration is speculated to lead to a dose- dependent increase in total body clearance and a high area under the curve/dose at lower doses, such as 0.3 mg/kg in rats.
DMD050617 1125..1133
TLDR
Intestinal flora were involved in CS-1036 metabolism and are indicated to be involved in the production of small molecule metabolites, which are the sources for amino acids and fatty acids, from [C]CS- 1036.
Biotechnology and molecular biology of the α-glucosidase inhibitor acarbose
TLDR
