Review on Teneligliptin: A novel antihyperglycemic agent
Diabetes mellitus relates a metabolic disorder of collective aetiology which is characterized by chronic hyperglycaemia caused due to disturbances of carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism due to impaired β cell function of pancreas or insulin resistance or both. Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors have recently emerged as a new class of antidiabetic that show favorable results in improving glycemic control with a minimal risk of hypoglycemia and weight gain. Teneligliptin is a recently developed oral dipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitor indicated for the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Teneligliptin, characterized by a "J-shaped" structure formed by five consecutive rings which give unique binding characteristics, reflect in higher potency than other dipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitor. Teneligliptin is a novel antihyperglycemic agent with a preferable profile in terms of long-term efficacy and safety in patients with type 2 diabetes.
