On the fasting-exercise day, fasting glucose concentrations were lower (153 vs. 241 mg/dl, P < 0.01) and insulin and C-peptide concentrations higher in the extended-release glipizide group. The decrement of glucose from the fasting baseline was modest and equivalent in the two groups: 17 vs. 21 mg/dl at the end of exercise and 28 vs. 27 mg/dl after 2 h of recovery. No subject had hypoglycemic symptoms.

Spray dried dispersions (SDDs) of glipizide, a BCS Class II model drug, were prepared using various grades of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose acetate succinate (HPMCAS) and copovidone S-630 as carriers. The SDDs appeared as a single amorphous phase with up to 60% drug loading level as revealed by X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD), modulated differential scanning calorimetry (mDSC) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Supersaturated micro-dissolution testing of various SDDs in fasted state simulated intestinal fluid showed prolonged supersaturation state (up to 180min) with solubility increases of 5.2-13.9 fold relative to crystalline drug under similar conditions. Solubility and stability characteristics of the most desirable SDDs in terms of relative dissolution AUCs (AUC(SDD)/AUC(crystalline)) and supersaturated concentration ratios (C180/Cmax) were determined. Results show that HPMCAS-based SDDs achieve a higher degree of supersaturation compared to Copovidone S-630 and that SDDs comprising HPMCAS-M and HPMCAS-H maintained stable supersaturated concentration. Dissolution data showed that SDD-loaded CR tablets provide stable supersaturated concentration within the hydrated matrix with increased rate and extent of drug dissolution over 24h. Co-existence of HPMCAS and HPMC within the hydrating matrix showed strong suppression of drug crystallization and allowed achievement of zero-order and slow-first order release kinetics.

In vitro iontophoretic delivery of glipizide across the pigskin was investigated. The experiment was carried out at three different donor drug concentrations using cathodal iontophoresis (current density 0.5 mA cm(-2)) with corresponding passive controls. At all concentration levels, iontophoresis showed enhanced permeation rate compared to passive controls (P<0.01). For passive permeation, the steady-state flux significantly increased with the increase in donor drug concentration (P<0.01). Passive process followed zero-order profile while the profile was nonlinear in iontophoresis. Competition by chloride ions released in the cathode compartment could be the reason. Flux enhancement was highest at the lowest drug load and lowest at the highest drug load. The target flux of glipizide was calculated to be 0. 4147 micromol h(-1). As the highest flux obtained was 0.2727 micromol cm(-2) h(-1), it can be said that glipizide is a promising candidate for iontophoretic delivery.

In this study we examined the acute in vivo effect and short- and long-term in vitro effects of samples from native and commercial Ilex paraguariensis on glucose homeostasis. Also, the potential effect of I. paraguariensis on serum insulin secretion was investigated. The chemical identification and quantification of methyl xanthines and polyphenols in CH₂Cl₂, EtOAc and n-BuOH fractions of native I. paraguariensis as well as infusions of green and roasted I. paraguariensis from a commercial source was verified by high-performance liquid chromatography. The results for the serum glucose-lowering indicated that both fractions and both infusions were able to improve significantly the oral glucose tolerance curve. Additionally, both the EtOAc and n-BuOH fractions induced-insulin secretion, but EtOAc induced an early (at 15 min) and late (at 60 min) biphasic peak of insulin secretion similar to glipizide stimulatory effect. Both fractions increased liver glycogen content compared with fasted normal rats. Also, EtOAc and n-BuOH fractions inhibited in vitro disaccharidases activities after an acute treatment. The maximum inhibitory effect of the EtOAc and n-BuOH fractions on maltase activity (at 5 min) was around 35%. The evident reduction of protein glycation by glucose or fructose with EtOAc and n-BuOH fractions increased from 7 to 28 days of in vitro incubation. Inhibition of bovine serum albumin glycation by glucose and fructose, by around 50% and 90%, respectively, was observed. Additionally, the green and roasted mate infusions reduced the formation of AGEs in a characteristic long-term effect. In conclusion, this study shows that I. paraguariensis has an anti-hyperglycemic potential role able to improve the diabetic status and is probably a source of multiple hypoglycemic compounds.

This review aimed to address effects of sustained-release versus immediate-release glipizide on glucose control, insulin secretion, and compliance. We searched Medline, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, and Chinese Biomedical database from inceptions to May 31, 2011, screened reference lists of relevant studies, and contacted pharmaceutical companies. Randomized trials and cohort studies were included. We pooled data using a random-effect model. Nineteen trials involving a total of 1440 patients and 2 retrospective cohort studies with a total of 13452 patients were included. Trials were of low quality. No trials reported patient important outcomes. The reduction of fasting plasma glucose from the baseline appeared larger for sustained-release than for immediate-release glipizide (mean difference -0.26 mmol/L, 95% CI -0.52 to -0.01). The reduction was not significantly different between the two drugs for HbA1c (-0.03%, -0.20% to 0.14%) or 2-hour postprandial plasma glucose (-0.21 mmol/L, -0.96 to 0.55). Sustained-release glipizide appeared to reduce insulin secretion from the baseline, whereas the immediate-release formulation increased the secretion (fasting insulin: -1.04 vs. 0.88 μIU/ml; 2-hour postprandial insulin: -2.94 vs. 0.24 μIU/ml). Patients administering sustained-release glipizide had less hypoglycemia (Peto odds ratio 0.21, 95% CI 0.08 to 0.52) and lower missed dosing (Peto odds ratio 11. 42, 95% CI 6.47 to 20.18). The cohort studies showed patient compliance results consistent with those of the trials. Sustained-release glipizide appears to achieve similar glucose control with decreased insulin secretion, fewer hypoglycemic episodes, and higher patient compliance than immediate-release glipizide. However, these findings are inconclusive due to inadequate study quality, short follow up, and unavailability of patient important outcomes.

K+ channels play a key role in regulation of membrane potential and cell excitability. Several different types of K+ channels have been identified and the presence, characteristics and functions of these channels vary among different tissues. The 3 most important K+ channels in smooth muscle are the KATP (activated by a fall in intracellular ATP and a rise in nucleotide diphosphates and blocked by glibenclamide), BKCa (activated by a rise in intracellular Ca2+) and Kv (activated by depolarization). Cromakalim, pinacidil and nicorandil are members of a rapidly increasing group of novel drugs which open K+ channels. Opening of such channels leads to K+ efflux, membrane hyperpolarization, reduced excitability and smooth muscle relaxation. The purpose of the studies included in this thesis was to investigate this novel drug principle of K+ channel modulation on smooth muscle contractility of isolated airways and arteries and on neuroeffector transmission in airways. Smooth muscle contractility was measured in airway and vascular ring preparations suspended in isometric myographs. Neurotransmitter release was elicited by transmural electrical field stimulation. The major findings were: 1) Membrane depolarization by high extracellular K+ concentrations induced contraction of airway smooth muscle that was easily relaxed by Ca2+ antagonists and abolished in a Ca2+ free medium indicating that K+ contraction is triggered by Ca2+ influx through voltage-operated Ca2+ channels. Indomethacin was required to obtain reproducible responses upon repeated exposure to K+ suggesting that endogenous prostaglandins are released by K+ and interferes with its contractile effect. K+ depolarization was shown to be a valuable pharmacological tool for detection of drugs acting by K+ channel opening. The prototype K+ channel opener cromakalim relaxed contractions induced by 20-30 mM K+ but had no effect against contraction induced by 124 mM K+. This was a unique profile of action not shared by other types of airway and vascular smooth muscle relaxants. As the extracellular K+ concentration is raised the outward directed electrochemical gradient for K+ is reduced and at high K+ concentrations the effect of K+ channel opening is negligible. Although the K+ channel opener pinacidil had a higher relaxant potency against contraction induced by 30 mM K+ than by 124 mM K+, it still relaxed the latter contraction indicating an additional K+ channel independent mechanism of action of the drug. When K+ depolarization is used as a pharmacological tool, it is essential to maintain osmolarity. Addition of KCI directly to the tissue bath solution, which previously was a commonly applied technique, produced confounding and unwanted effects due to hyperosmolarity per se. 2) Pinacidil and cromakalim relaxed guinea-pig trachea either tone was spontaneous or induced by a range of airway spasmogens (histamine, PGF2 alpha, LTC4/LTD4 or carbachol) of relevance as asthma mediators. The relaxant effectiveness of the drugs was reduced when tone was elicited by carbachol. The airway smooth muscle relaxation produced by pinacidil and cromakalim was selectively blocked by the antidiabetic sulfonylureas glibenclamide, glipizide and glibornuride and also by phentolamine. These drugs are blockers of KATP which therefore indicates that this channel is the target for cromakalim and pinacidil in airway smooth muscle. Additional to the antagonistic action against K+ channel openers the sulfonylurea KATP blockers and phentolamine at higher concentrations relaxed airway smooth muscle by yet unknown mechanisms that seemed unrelated to KATP. 3) Cromakalim and pinacidil inhibited nerve-mediated e-NANC contractile responses in guinea-pig bronchi. Such responses are due to release of SP and related tachykinins from sensory nerve endings. These neuropeptides cause bronchoconstriction and airway inflammation and may possibly play an important role in the pathophysiology of asthma.

A split calibration curve approach is employed to determine the drug concentration in plasma samples with accuracy and precision over a wide dynamic range of approximately 0.6 to 15,000 ng/ml for dapsone and approximately 1 to 25,000 ng/ml for cyclophosphamide and glipizide. A wide dynamic range of concentrations for these three compounds was used in the current study to construct split calibration curves and was successfully validated for sample analysis in a single run.

Cryptococcosis is an opportunistic infection caused by Cryptococcus neoformans that typically presents in immunocompromised patients, most commonly in those with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. It rarely has been described in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). Defects in the host defense mechanisms due to hyperglycemia predispose diabetic patients to opportunistic infections such as cryptococcosis. We present a rare case of disseminated cryptococcosis in a 48-year-old HIV-negative man with DM.

We have previously shown that tight metabolic control by insulin therapy reduced thromboxane-dependent platelet activation in non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) patients. The present study was undertaken to determine whether a similar effect could be obtained without switching diabetics in secondary failure to insulin treatment. For this purpose, we gave strict diet and exercise advise program and adjusted on a weekly basis the oral antidiabetic therapy (glipizide) that 26 patients with NIDDM had been given over the previous months. Basal measurements of urinary 11-dehydro-TXB2 and PAI-1 confirmed previous findings of enhanced levels of these parameters in NIDDM patients with macrovascular disease in comparison to age- and sex-matched controls. After 2-6 weeks, 16 patients achieved tight metabolic control associated with significant reduction of both thromboxane biosynthesis and PAI-1 levels; 10 patients remained in poor control and no significant decrease of both parameters was observed. We conclude that reduction of in-vivo platelet activation and PAI-1 antigen levels after metabolic improvement obtained by frequent reassessment of sulphonylurea therapy together with strict diet and exercise programs may have beneficial effects on the progression of diabetic micro- and macrovascular disease.

The physiology of counterregulatory responses during hypoglycemia in intensively treated type 2 diabetic subjects is largely unknown. Therefore, the specific aims of the study tested the hypothesis that 1) 6 months of intensive therapy to lower A1C <7.0% would blunt autonomic nervous system (ANS) responses to hypoglycemia, and 2) antecedent hypoglycemia will result in counterregulatory failure during subsequent hypoglycemia in patients with suboptimal and good glycemic control.

In this study, carboxymethyl derivative of locust bean gum was prepared, characterized, and its gelling ability with different concentrations (1-5% w/v) of aluminum chloride (AlCl(3)) was utilized for the development of glipizide-loaded beads in a completely aqueous environment. The beads were spherical when observed under a scanning electron microscope. Increase in gelling ion concentration decreased the drug entrapment efficiency from 97.68% to 95.14%. The beads swelled more slowly in pH 1.2 KCl-HCl buffer and exhibited a slower drug release pattern than that observed in pH 7.4 phosphate buffer. Irrespective of the dissolution media, the drug release became slower at higher AlCl(3) concentration. The drug release in alkaline medium was found to be controlled by a combination of diffusion as well as polymer relaxation phenomena. Comparing the release profiles, it was observed that the beads treated with 5% AlCl(3) provided slower drug release up to 10 h in alkaline medium without any sign of disintegration and, thus, this formulation was selected for further studies. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy indicated the stable nature of the drug in the beads. Differential scanning calorimetry and X-ray diffraction analysis showed that most of the drug remained in amorphous state in the beads. Stability study indicated no statistical significant difference in drug entrapment efficiency of the beads. In vivo activity of the beads was tested and a prolonged hypoglycemic effect was achieved. Hence, carboxymethyl locust bean beads could be a potential carrier for controlled oral delivery of glipizide.

More than 8 million Americans are afflicted with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), a complex disease process characterized by insulin resistance and impaired insulin secretion. Diet and exercise continue to be the cornerstones of treatment. Most patients, however, require the addition of an oral sulfonylurea agent to achieve adequate glucose control. The second-generation sulfonylureas, glyburide and glipizide, are effective at lower doses and may have fewer adverse effects and drug interactions than the older, first-generation agents. For these reasons the second-generation sulfonylureas are preferred. Insulin therapy is required in patients with hyperosmolar state, infection, or other forms of stress, or in those who fail to respond to treatment with oral sulfonylurea. Some patients may benefit from the concurrent administration of insulin and an oral agent. Hypoglycemia is the greatest risk of drug therapy in elderly patients with NIDDM. This is especially true in elderly patients who are exquisitely sensitive to the effects of sulfonylureas and insulin. Treatment should, therefore, be initiated at very low doses and gradually adjusted.

Peripheral blood glucose, plasma insulin and C-peptide levels were investigated after giving a standardized breakfast (500 kcal, 60 g carbohydrates) to 10 nonobese Type 2 diabetic patients previously treated by diet alone. Each patient received at random, at 1 week intervals, either 5 mg glipizide (meal + glipizide) or a placebo (meal alone) 30 min before breakfast. Basal values of blood glucose, plasma insulin and C-peptide were similar on both occasions. After meal + glipizide, the blood glucose increase was sharply limited whereas the rise in plasma insulin was steeper and reached twice as high a level. In contrast, the rise in plasma C-peptide was similar in both conditions. Consequently, the areas under the curves (0-300 min) showed a marked reduction in blood glucose after meal + glipizide (2289 +/- 149 versus 3101 +/- 169 mmol X min/1; 2p less than 0.001), associated with a significant increase in plasma insulin (14219 +/- 3261 versus 7591 +/- 1173 microU X min/ml; 2p less than 0.025) but no significant change in plasma C-peptide (342 +/- 45 versus 326 +/- 34 pmol X min/ml; N.S.). The insulin/C-peptide molar ratio was thus significantly increased after meal + glipizide (0.41 +/- 0.06 versus 0.23 +/- 0.04 at the 60th min; 2p less than 0.02). The dissociation between the responses of insulin and C-peptide suggests that a single dose of 5 mg glipizide in Type 2 diabetic subjects may enhance availability of peripheral insulin by extrapancreatic mechanism(s). This phenomenon may result in a higher circulating level of the hormone and therefore represent a further mode of action of sulphonylureas.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Several oral antidiabetics and diuretics show phototoxic effects in the HaCaT cell line. Inhibiting effects of antioxidants point towards involvement of reactive oxygen species in phototoxic DNA damage, suggesting a link between the phototoxic and photocancerogenic potential of the sulfonamide-derived oral antidiabetic and diuretic drugs. Excessive exposure to UV light may be deleterious for patients treated with oral antidiabetic and diuretic drugs.

Twenty out-patient and twenty in-patient adult Nigerian type II diabetics and twenty healthy subjects matched for sex, age and weight, were studied at Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital, Nnewi, Nigeria. Mean total cholesterol and fasting blood glucose concentrations were higher in the diabetics. The out-patients had significantly higher total cholesterol and fasting blood glucose values than their in-patient counterparts. The possible cardiovascular risk of the raised cholesterol level in the diabetics was discussed. We recommend that for effective management of diabetic patients, periodic measurement of cholesterol level is necessary. An integrated enlightenment programme to acquaint the out-patients with the health benefits of dietary and drug compliance and occasional hospitalisation for better monitoring would be desirable.

The objectives of the present study were to determine the localization of K(ATP) channels in normal retina and to evaluate their potential roles in ischemic preconditioning (IPC) in a rat model of ischemia induced by increased intraocular pressure (IOP). Brown Norway rats were subjected to sublethal 3-, lethal 20- and 40-min ischemia and the functional recovery was evaluated using electroretinography. The time interval between ischemic insults ranged from 1 to 72 h. The effects of K(ATP) channel blockade on IPC protection were studied by treatment with 0.01% glipizide. IPC was mimicked by injection of K(ATP) channel openers of 0.01% (-)cromakalim or 0.01% P1060 72 h before 20-min ischemia. Co-expression of K(ATP) channel subunits Kir6.2/SUR1 was observed in the retinal pigment epithelium, inner segments of photoreceptors, outer plexiform and ganglion cell layers and at the border of the inner nuclear layer. In contrast to a 20- or 40-min ischemia, a 3-min ischemia induced no alteration of the electroretinogram (ERG) and constituted the preconditioning stimulus. An ischemic challenge of 40 min in preconditioned rats induced impairment of retinal function. However, animals preconditioned 24, 48 and 72 h before 20-min ischemia had a significant improvement of the ERG. (-)Cromakalim and P1060 mimicked the effect of IPC. Glipizide significantly suppressed the protective effects of preconditioning. In conclusion, activation of K(ATP) channels plays an important role in the mechanism of preconditioning by enhancing the resistance of the retina against a severe ischemic insult.

A fully automated multipumping flow system (MPFS) using water-soluble CdTe quantum dots (QD) as sensitizers is proposed for the chemiluminometric determination of the anti-diabetic drugs gliclazide and glipizide in pharmaceutical formulations. The nanocrystals acted as enhancers of the weak CL emission produced upon oxidation of sulphite by Ce(IV) in acidic medium, thus improving sensitivity and expanding the dynamical analytical concentration range. By interacting with the QD, the two analytes prevented their sensitizing effect yielding a chemiluminescence quenching of the Ce(IV)-SO(3)(2-)CdTe QD system. The pulsed flow inherent to MPFS assured a fast and efficient mixing of all solutions inside the flow cell, circumventing the need for a reaction coil and facilitating the monitoring of the short-lived generated chemiluminescent species. QD crystal size, concentration and spectral region for measurement were investigated.

Extended release formulation of glipizide based on osmotic technology was developed and evaluated. The effect of different formulation variables, namely, level of solubility modifier in the core, membrane weight gain, and level of pore former in the membrane, were studied. Drug release was found to be affected by the level of solubility modifier in the core formulation. Glipizide release was inversely proportional to the membrane weight but directly related to the initial level of pore former (PVP) in the membrane. Burst strength of the exhausted shells increased with the weight gain of the membrane. On the other hand, burst strength decreased with an increase in the level of pore former in the membrane. Drug release from the developed formulations was independent of pH and agitational intensity, but dependent on the osmotic pressure of the release media. Results of SEM studies showed the formation of pores in the membrane from where the drug release occurred. The numbers of pores were directly proportional to the initial level of pore former in the membrane. The manufacturing procedure buy glucotrol was found to be reproducible and formulations were stable after 3 months of accelerated stability studies.

RP 49356 is a novel compound which relaxes airway smooth muscle in vitro. Like cromakalim, RP 49356 reduced contractility in guinea pig isolated trachealis under basal conditions or when challenged with low (less than 20 mM) but not high K+. These effects were antagonized by the sulphonylureas glibenclamide and glipizide. This spectrum of action is typical of the class of compounds known as potassium channel openers (KCOs). Unlike RP 49356 and cromakalim, nifedipine had no effect on basal tone, relaxed tissues contracted with low or high K+ and was not antagonized by the sulphonylureas. These data suggest that the KCOs are not acting directly at the voltage-gated Ca++ channel in this tissue. RP 49356 and cromakalim were similar to nifedipine by being more potent at relaxing tissues precontracted with carbachol or histamine (spasmolytic effects) than they were at preventing initiation of the response to these spasmogens (antispasmogenic effects). Because the maintained phase of contraction in airway smooth muscle may be associated with some Ca++ influx, the data presented here suggests that, like nifedipine, the KCOs are more active smooth muscle relaxants under conditions of Ca++ influx. In summary, RP 49356, like cromakalim, is a compound which relaxes airway smooth muscle in vitro by opening a sulphonylurea-sensitive K+ channel which may be similar to the ATP-sensitive K+ channel found in other tissues buy glucotrol .

The modulation by K+ channel-acting drugs of the antinociceptive effect of several 5-HT1A receptor agonists was examined with the hot plate test in mice. All the 5-HT1A receptor agonists tested induced dose-dependent antinociception, the order of potency being (+/-)-8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propyl-amino)tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) > buspirone > or = lesopitron > or = tandospirone. The blockers of ATP-sensitive K+ channels (KATP) gliquidone and glipizide (1-4 and 16-64 micrograms/mouse i.c.v., respectively) reduced the antinociceptive effect of 8-OH-DPAT, whereas cromakalim (32-64 micrograms/mouse i.c.v.), an opener of KATP channels, enhanced the effect. In contrast, 4-aminopyridine (25-250 ng/mouse i.c.v.) and tetraethylammonium (10-20 micrograms/mouse i.c.v.), which antagonize several non-ATP-dependent K+ conductances, were inactive. The same results were found with other agonists of 5-HT1A receptors (lesopitron, buspirone and tandospirone): gliquidone inhibited whereas cromakalim increased their antinociceptive effects. None of the K+ channel-acting drugs modified the binding of [3H]8-OH-DPAT to hippocampal membranes, whereas all the 5-HT1A receptor agonists displaced the ligand. These results suggest that ATP-sensitive K+ conductances are involved in the antinociception induced buy glucotrol by agonists of 5-HT1A receptors.

A simple regime of a single injection of insulin, alone or with glipizide, seemed sufficient to obtain clinically acceptable levels of HbA1c for most obese, insulin-requiring type 2 diabetes patients. Further decrease of HbA1c demanded multiple daily injections at the expense of doubling the insulin dose and the rate of hypoglycemic events. In combination therapy, doses of glipizide > 20 mg buy glucotrol /day offered no additional benefit.

For the PP cohort, mean baseline HbA(1c) was 7.3% in both groups. After 2 years, the least squares (LS) mean change in HbA(1c) from baseline [95% confidence interval (CI)] was -0.54% (-0.64, -0.45) with sitagliptin (n = 248) and -0.51% (-0.60, -0.42) with glipizide (n = 256). The rise in HbA(1c) from week 24 to week 104 [i.e. coefficient of durability (COD)] was smaller with sitagliptin [COD (95% CI) 0.16%/year (0.10, 0.21)] compared with glipizide [0.26%/year (0.21, 0.31)]. The proportion of patients with an HbA(1c)< 7% was 63% and 59% with sitagliptin and buy glucotrol glipizide, respectively. The beta-cell responsiveness to a meal challenge was maintained with sitagliptin and decreased with glipizide. The proportion of patients who reported hypoglycaemia was 5% with sitagliptin and 34% with glipizide [difference in proportions (95% CI) = -29% (-33, -25)]. Relative to baseline, sitagliptin was associated with weight loss (-1.6 kg) compared with weight gain (+0.7 kg) with glipizide.

Nitric oxide (NO) is a potent vasodilating agent implicated in cochlear blood flow regulation. We recently demonstrated that exogenously applied NO donor DPTA-NONOate hyperpolarizes both endothelial and smooth muscle cells of in vitro spiral modiolar artery (SMA) via activation of ATP-sensitive K+ channels (K(ATP)). Also, NO was detected in the SMA cells by NO indicator dye in the in vitro basal condition. Using intracellular recording techniques, electrochemical NO-sensing measurement, and a vaso-diameter video tracking method, we investigated the basal release of NO from the in vitro SMA and its role in the vascular function. We found that (1) 300 microM L-NAME, a NO synthase inhibitor, and 3 microM glipizide caused a depolarization of approximately 4.5 and approximately 3.2 mV, respectively, in cells with a resting potential less negative than -60 mV; (2) NO sensor in the close vicinity of the SMA detected a NO concentration of approximately 50 nM that was suppressed by L-NAME and enhanced by L-arginine (1-1000 microM); (3) NO donor DPTA-NONOate (0.1-30 microM) applications produced about 8-245 nM of NO in the recording bath. These data indicate a NO concentration-hyperpolarization relation, with an EC50 of 22 nM. (4) Finally, L-NAME but not glipizide produced a 4.8% reduction in SMA diameter (approximately 50 microm) in the majority of SMAs, whereas NONOate (10 microM) always caused a dilation buy glucotrol . Both the induced constriction and dilation were not significantly affected by 3 microM glipizide. We conclude that a significant amount of NO (> 50 nM) is tonically released from the in vitro SMA, which is above the EC50 for activation of K(ATP), and thus contributes to the membrane polarization. The basal release of NO also contributes to vasotone relaxation, but the K(ATP) activation appears to play little role in the relaxation of the in vitro SMA.

Hepatic insulin uptake was studied in five patients with portal catheters introduced through the umbilical vein remnant for diagnostic purposes. Glipizide (1,5 mg) was given intravenously followed one hour later by 20 g glucose intravenously and blood samples were buy glucotrol drawn simultanously from the portal vein and a hepatic vein. The areas under the curves describing portal insulin and hepatic insulin were calculated. The ratio of (portal insulin area -- hepatic insulin area) /portal insulin area after glucose injection exceeded that after glipizide injection (p < 0.05). This finding indicates a greater fractional hepatic extraction of insulin after glucose than after glipizide. Healthy subjects were given 100 g glucose perorally and blood samples were drawn simultanously from a radial artery and an antecubital vein for one hour. In all cases a net insulin uptake was observed during the whole observation period. The subjects were restudied given 1.5 mg intravenously one hour before glucose administration. This time less insulin was taken up by the forearm tissues after the glucose load and in one subject insulin in venous blood samples exceeded that in corresponding arterial blood samples. It is concluded that glipizide when given before a glucose load affects the uptake of insulin by peripheral tissues during the glucose load.

The UKPDS was a 20-year study involving 23 centres in the United Kingdom. More than 5000 buy glucotrol patients with Type 2 diabetes were recruited. The aim of the study was to determine the impact of intensive blood glucose control on 21 predetermined clinical endpoints using, in the care of blood glucose control, sulphonylureas or insulin therapy or, in the overweight patient, treatment with metformin. In addition, the study investigated the impact of intensive blood pressure control on macro- and microvascular complications of diabetes and compared captopril treatment with atenolol. UKPDS found that improved control of blood glucose or blood pressure reduced the risk of major diabetic eye disease by one quarter, serious deterioration of vision by nearly one half, early kidney damage by one third, strokes by one third, and death from diabetes-related causes by one third. Blood glucose control had little or no effect on macrovascular events. There was no evidence of a major detrimental effect of the drugs or insulin on survival or outcome other than the expected risk of hypoglycaemia. Metformin appeared to be the drug of choice in obese diabetic patients. The targets of glucose and blood pressure control were often achieved by using several drugs. Many patients at the end of the studies were on four or five drugs for blood glucose and blood pressure treatment. The results and implications of the study are discussed. It is proposed that the results of UKPDS herald a new era of more focused therapy of Type 2 diabetes.

Cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2C9 and CYP2C19 genetic mutant could influence the plasma concentration of glipizide in human subjects, which refers to glipizide safety and adverse effects in clinic practice. A further study to investigate the relationship of the concentrations between glipizide and its metabolites in human with different CYP mutants was valuable. We firstly develop a validated liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method for simultaneous quantification of glipizide and its hydroxylated metabolites in human urine. After simple protein precipitation with methanol including 4'-OH-tolbutamide and gliclazide (both are internal standards), the analytes were chromatographed on a reversed-phased column with a mobile phase of 0.1% formic acid in acetonitrile and 0.1% formic acid in water by a gradient elution. The ion transitions of the precursor to the product ion were principally protonated ions [M+H](+) at m/z 446.4→m/z 321.1 for buy glucotrol glipizide, m/z 462.2→m/z 321.1 for the four hydroxylated forms of glipizide, m/z 287.2→m/z 188.0 for 4'-OH-tolbutamide, and m/z 324.1→m/z 127.1 for gliclazide. The method was linear over a concentration range of 0.02-20.0ng/mL. The intraday and inter-day variances were less than 9.9%, and accuracy was within ±6.8%. The method was successfully applied to the urinary phenotyping study in volunteers after a single oral administration of 5-mg glipizide tablet, and two new hydroxycyclohexyl metabolites of glipizide (OH-gp), 4-cis-OH-gp and 3-trans-OH-gp, were found in this study.

A total of 91 subjects were screened, subjected to a 4-week drug washout, and randomized to daily treatment with glipizide GITS (maximum 20 mg, n = 46) or metformin (maximum 2,550 mg, n = 45) as monotherapy. After monotherapy, combination therapy was initiated by adding the second agent to the regimen. Plasma glucose (fasting and postprandial), HbA(1c), fructosamine, and PAI-1 were assayed before and after randomization and sequentially thereafter in all subjects; hepatic glucose output (HGO) and abdominal fat distribution were each measured in a buy glucotrol subset of subjects.

The effects of 3 mo of treatment with a combination of glipizide and human proinsulin were studied in a small group of closely monitored patients. The patients had non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and poor glucose regulation, despite maximal sulfonylurea therapy. This was a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial in which there were three treatment groups who received either 20 mg glipizide given 30 min before breakfast and dinner and human proinsulin given subcutaneously at bedtime (n = 5), glipizide and human proinsulin placebo (n = 5), or glipizide placebo and human proinsulin (n = 5). buy glucotrol Glycemic regulation was assessed by measurements of 24-h plasma glucose profiles and glycosylated hemoglobin. Our observations demonstrate that the combination of glipizide plus human proinsulin was more effective than either agent alone in controlling overall glycemia in patients with NIDDM. The data support the concept of use of an agent during the day that has its major effects postprandially and another agent at bedtime that is relatively hepatospecific.

A study was carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of glipizide in insulin-dependent diabetic patients. An intravenous glipizide (2 mg) test was carried out in 7 patients before and after a period of associated insulin-glipizide treatment (mean daily dose of 80.7 i.v. lente insulin and 14.3 mg glipizide for 9.1 months) to assess the capacity of the sulphonylurea to reduce acutely the plasma glucose and lactate levels. Glipizide did not produce glucose variations in either test but did result in a significant decrease, in the first test only, in mean plasma baseline levels of lactate, which were higher than normal in these patients. There was no reduction in daily Voltaren Jell Medication insulin requirements after the period of associated glipizide-insulin treatment. It is concluded that, in the dosage used, intravenous glipizide probably has no hypoglycaemic effects in insulin-dependent diabetics. Moreover, it did not prove useful in combination with insulin. However, the reduction in plasma lactate may be related to an acute enhancement of the exogenously administered insulin. This improvement in the insulin effect may be an acute one among the so called "extra-pancreatic" actions which have been demonstrated for glipizide and other sulphonylureas.

The zebrafish model system is one of the most widely used animal models for developmental research and it is now becoming an attractive model for drug discovery and toxicological screening. The completion of sequencing the zebrafish genome and the availability of full-length cDNAs and DNA microarrays for expression analysis, in addition to techniques for generating transgenic lines and targeted mutations, have made the zebrafish model even more attractive to researchers. Recent data indicate that the regulation of glucose metabolism in zebrafish, through the production of insulin, is similar to mammalian models, and many of the genes involved in regulating blood glucose levels have been identified in zebrafish. The data presented here show that Lexapro With Alcohol adult zebrafish respond to anti-diabetic drugs similarly to mammalian models, by reducing blood glucose levels. Furthermore, we show that the expression of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK), which catalyzes a rate-limiting step in gluconeogenesis and is transcriptionally regulated by glucagon and insulin, is regulated in larval zebrafish similarly to that seen in mammalian systems, and changes in PEPCK expression can be obtained through real-time PCR analysis of whole larval RNA. Taken together, these data suggest that larval zebrafish may be an appropriate model for the examination of glucose metabolism, using PEPCK as an indicator of blood glucose levels.

The use of water-soluble additives in osmotic release tablets often renders the wet granulation method unsuitable. Hence, it was proposed to investigate the feasibility of preparing granules comprising of osmogen (sodium Nexium Reviews 2015 chloride), alkalizer (sodium carbonate), polyvinyl pyrroidone (Kollidon K 30) and carboxymethyl cellulose sodium (Cekol 30000) by a hot melt technique for obtaining sustained release of glipizide from tablets.

The influence of Valtrex 25 Mg sulfonylurea on the secretion, disposal and effect of insulin was studied in 9 Type 2 diabetics during 3 one-month courses of treatment with a) chlorpropamide (t1/2 greater than 24 h) once daily, b) glipizide (t1/2 = 2-4 h) once daily, and c) glipizide in divided doses. Food intake by each patient was identical during each period. Blood concentrations of immunoreactive insulin (IRI) and C-peptide (radioimmunoassays), and of glucose (enzymatic assay), chlorpropamide (gas chromatography) and glipizide (high-pressure liquid chromatography) were determined before and after breakfast and lunch on the 4th day of each examination period. All comparisons were intraindividual. Despite the lunch-time dose of glipizide given during the divided dose treatment, once-daily administration of this drug led to higher drug concentrations not only after breakfast but also for the first few hours after lunch. Divided dosage, on the other hand, led to higher concentrations later. In contrast to once-daily dosage, continuous exposure to glipizide was found in most patients. Chlorpropamide gave the most continuous sulfonylurea exposure. The blood glucose levels were inversely related to the concurrent sulfonylurea concentrations; glucose levels after breakfast and lunch were lowest during once-daily glipizide, whereas the fasting level was lowest during chlorpropamide treatment. The IRI response to breakfast was 60%-70% higher during once-daily glipizide than during the other two treatments but the C-peptide responses to breakfast were almost identical. Thus, the greater after-breakfast availability of peripheral insulin appeared to be due to an effect of glipizide on the extrapancreatic disposal of the hormone.

Type 2 diabetes is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality among noncommunicable diseases, and additional animal models that more closely replicate the pathogenesis of human type 2 diabetes are needed. The goal of this study was to develop a model of type 2 diabetes in guinea pigs, in which diet-induced glucose intolerance precedes β-cell cytotoxicity, two processes that are crucial to the development of human type 2 diabetes. Guinea pigs developed impaired glucose tolerance after 8 weeks of feeding on a high-fat, high-carbohydrate diet, as determined by oral glucose challenge. Diet-induced glucose intolerance was accompanied by β-cell hyperplasia, compensatory hyperinsulinemia, and dyslipidemia with hepatocellular steatosis. Streptozotocin (STZ) treatment alone was ineffective at inducing diabetic hyperglycemia in guinea pigs, which failed to develop sustained glucose intolerance or fasting hyperglycemia and returned to euglycemia within 21 days after treatment. However, when high-fat, high-carbohydrate diet-fed guinea pigs were treated with STZ, glucose intolerance and fasting hyperglycemia persisted beyond 21 days post-STZ treatment. Guinea pigs with diet-induced glucose intolerance subsequently treated with STZ demonstrated an insulin-secretory capacity consistent with insulin-independent diabetes. This insulin-independent state was confirmed by response to oral antihyperglycemic drugs, metformin and glipizide, which resolved glucose intolerance and extended survival compared with guinea pigs with uncontrolled diabetes. In this study, we have developed a model of sequential glucose intolerance and β-cell loss, through high-fat, high-carbohydrate diet and extensive optimization of STZ treatment in the guinea pig, which closely resembles human type 2 diabetes. This model will prove useful in the study of insulin-independent diabetes pathogenesis with or without comorbidities, where the guinea pig serves as a relevant model species.

No ion suppression effect was noted for the analytes at their specific retention-time windows. For all drugs, assay validation showed good linearity (r2>0.990) and acceptable imprecision and recovery based on commonly used criteria of acceptance. The mean extraction recoveries were 63%-87% for 5 sulfonylureas but <45% for 3 (carbutamide, chlorpropamide, and tolbutamide). Nevertheless, the high sensitivity of the MS instrument made possible detection and quantification of all 8 drugs at subtherapeutic to toxic concentrations with good precision. Sulfonylureas were found in 9 hypoglycemic patients.
