Pharmacological action


Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics

Yanumet's drug is a combination of two hypoglycemic substances with the complementary (complementary) mechanism of action. It was developed for the best control of a glycemia at the patients suffering from a diabetes mellitus ІІ type. By the nature sitagliptin is inhibitor dipeptidilpeptidazy-4 (abbr. DPP-4) whereas Metforminum is a representative of a class guanyl guanidines.

Pharmacological action of a sitagliptin as DPP-4 inhibitor is mediated by activation of inkretin. At DPP-4 inhibition, concentration of 2 active hormones this increases. inkretin: glyukagonopodobny peptide-1 (GPP-1), and also glyukozozavisimy insulinotropny polypeptide (GIP). These hormones — part of the internal physiological system regulating a glucose homeostasis. If glucose level in blood the normal or raised, then above-stated inkretin assist in increase in synthesis of insulin and its secretion. Besides, GPP-1 suppresses allocation of a glucagon that suppresses process of synthesis of glucose in a liver. Sitagliptin in therapeutic doses does not suppress activity of enzymes — dipeptidilpeptidazy-8 and dipeptidilpeptidazy-9.

Thanks to increase of tolerance to glucose at patients with a diabetes mellitus ІІ type by means of Metforminum, basal and postprandialny concentration of glucose in a blood flow decreases. In addition, reduction of synthesis of glucose in a liver (gluconeogenesis) is observed, absorption of glucose in intestines decreases, sensitivity to insulin due to capture and utilization of molecules of glucose increases. Its pharmacological mechanism of action differs from other peroral hypoglycemic means of other classes.
