Pharmacology

Indication

For the treatment of diabetes mellitus type 1 and 2.

Structured Indications

Pharmacodynamics

Reglixane shows a hypoglycemic effect and also a stronger triglyceride-lowering effect than the thiazolidine-2,4-diones. In preclinical studies, reglixane has been shown to prevent several diabetic complications, such as cataract, nephropathy, and neuropathy.

Mechanism of action

Reglixane is an agonist of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) gamma and alpha.
