Remko [16] used the methods of theoretical chemistry to elucidate the molecular properties of the hypoglycemic sulfonylureas and glinides (acetohexamide, tolazamide, tolbutamide, chlorpropamide, gliclazide, glimepiride, glipizide, glibenclamide, nateglinide, and repaglinide) which are known as antidiabetic molecules.
In vitro inhibition of breast cancer spheroid-induced lymphendothelial defects resembling intravasation into the lymphatic vasculature by acetohexamide, isoxsuprine, nifedipin and proadifen.
First-generation sulfonylureas, including chlorpropamide (Diabinese[R]), tolbutamide (Orinase[R]), tolazamide (Tolinase[R]), and acetohexamide (Dymelor[R]), have substituents that are small, polar, and hydrophilic, making them more water-soluble and less potent, in the second and third-generation sulfonylureas, (glyburide [Micronase[R]], glipizide [Glucotrol[R]], gliclazide [Diamicron[R], Dianorm-In[R]], and glimepiride [Amaryl[R], DIAPRIDE[R]]), substituents are large, nonpolar, lipophilic groups that more readily penetrate cell membranes and therefore are more potent in increasing insulin release (Spiller & Sawyer, 2006).
