IndicationIndicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Structured Indications
PharmacodynamicsNot Available
Mechanism of actionAlbiglutide is an agonist of the GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide 1) receptor and augments glucose-dependent insulin secretion. Albiglutide also slows gastric emptying.

AbsorptionMaximum concentrations of albiglutide were reached at 3 to 5 days post-dosing following a single 30mg dose. The mean peak concentration (Cmax) and mean area under the time-concentration curve (AUC) of albiglutide were 1.74 mcg/mL and 465 mcg.h/mL, respectively
Volume of distribution

11 L.

Protein bindingNot Available
Metabolism

Biotransformation studies have not been performed. Because albiglutide is an albumin fusion protein, it likely follows a metabolic pathway similar to native human serum albumin, which is catabolized primarily in the vascular endothelium.

Route of eliminationNot Available
Half life4-7 days.
Clearance

67 mL/h.

Toxicity-RISK OF THYROID C-CELL TUMORS -Albiglutide is contraindicated in patients with a personal or family history of MTC or in patients with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN2). Routine serum calcitonin or thyroid ultrasound monitoring is of uncertain value in patients treated with Albiglutide.
