Abstract:
Much interest has focused on the newer incretin-based therapeutic modalities for diabetes, especially GLP-1 analogues. While the comparatively older GLP-1 analogs, exenatide and liraglutide, have been discussed extensively in literature, much less is known about the newer GLP-1 analogues in the pipeline. This review focuses on the newer molecules being studied, the newer routes of administration being tried, some recent patents and potential uses for these multifaceted compounds.
Keywords:
GLP-1 analogs, long acting exenatide, albiglutide, taspoglutide, GLP-2 analogs, GLP-1 secretagogues
