Description

INCB13739 is developed as a new treatment for type 2 diabetes. It is an orally available small molecule inhibitor of 11beta-HSD1 (11-beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1). 11beta-HSD1 is an enzyme that appears to be critical to the development of type 2 diabetes.

Pharmacology

Indication

Investigated for use/treatment in diabetes mellitus type 2 and diabetes prevention.

Pharmacodynamics

11beta-HSD1 is an enzyme that converts cortisone into the potent biologically active hormone cortisol. This conversion occurs intra-cellularly within several key metabolic tissues including the liver, adipose, muscle and pancreas. Cortisol acts as an antagonist of insulin action, and 11beta-HSD1 mediated production of cortisol has been hypothesized to contribute to human insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. INCB13739 inhibits 11beta-HSD1 and has the potential to provide a broad spectrum impact on the multiple components seen in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Mechanism of action

INCB13739 is an inhibitor of 11beta-HSD1 (11-beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1). 11beta-HSD1 is an enzyme that appears to be critical to the development of type 2 diabetes. INCB13739 completely inhibits the production of intra-adipose and intra-hepatic cortisol by 11beta-HSD1, while maintaining normal systemic cortisol levels, which are essential for immune function and response to stress.
