Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor


Vildagliptin a high affinity (DPP-4) inhibitor enhances insulin secretion via augmented incretin effect. The administration of vildagliptin results in a rapid and complete inhibition of DPP-4 activity, resulting in increased fasting and postprandial endogenous levels of the incretin hormones GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide 1) and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide).
