The use of the lipid--lowering drug gemfibrozil and the insulin secretagogue
repaglinide puts people with type 2 diabetes at an increased risk of hypoglycemia.
On December 20, 2017, the US Food and Drug Administration granted marketing approval for Macrilen, an oral growth hormone secretagogue
receptor agonist, to be used in the diagnosis of patients with adult growth hormone deficiency.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted marketing approval for MACRILEN, an oral growth hormone secretagogue
(GHS) receptor agonist, to be used in the diagnosis of patients with adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD), which affects approximately 60,000 adults in the U.
The company's cardiorenal portfolio includes the Phase 3 development of tenapanor for the treatment of hyperphosphatemia in people with end-stage renal disease who are on dialysis, and RDX013, a potassium secretagogue
Ghrelin, the endogenous ligand for the growth hormone secretagogue
receptor, has been identified in the pancreas of many vertebrates.
The growth hormone production in response to growth hormone secretagogue
is suppressed by growth hormone releasing hormone antagonist11.
There are some secretagogue
agents currently under investigation by pharmaceutical companies.
Global Markets Direct's, 'Growth Hormone Secretagogue
Receptor Type 1 (GHS-R or GH-Releasing Peptide Receptor or GHRP or Ghrelin Receptor or GHSR) - Pipeline Review, H1 2016', provides in depth analysis on Growth Hormone Secretagogue
Receptor Type 1 (GHS-R or GH-Releasing Peptide Receptor or GHRP or Ghrelin Receptor or GHSR) targeted pipeline therapeutics.
Ghrelin is a gut/brain peptide comprising 28 amino acids and is originally identified as the endogenous ligand of the growth hormone secretagogue
receptor (GHSR) (1, 2).
If the patient is currently taking an insulin secretagogue
or insulin when an SGLT2 is added, consider lowering the dose of the insulin secretagogue
or insulin to avoid hypoglycemia.
Ghrelin, a 28-amino acid polypeptide, was initially isolated from the human and rat stomach as an endogenous ligand of growth hormone secretagogue
receptor type 1a (GHS-R1a) .
