Presented at the Endocrine Society Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, with simultaneous publication in the Journal of the American Medical Association, PIONEER 3 was a phase 3a trial investigating the efficacy and long-term safety of oral semaglutide 3 mg, 7 mg and 14 mg compared with sitagliptin 100 mg in adults with type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled with metformin, with or without sulfonylurea, over 78 weeks.
Healthcare company Novo Nordisk Friday announced that its oral semaglutide in 7 mg and 14 mg demonstrated superior A1C and body weight reductions, compared to Januvia (sitagliptin 100 mg), under its PIONEER 3 trial.
Summary: A simple, rapid, and sensitive HPLC-PDA method has been developed for the simultaneous separation and estimation of metformin (MET), sitagliptin (SIT), glipizide (GPZ), and glibenclamide (GBN).

In our previous studies, we have shown that sitagliptin can enhance endothelial regeneration after vascular injury.
The search strategy used for PubMed (http://www.ncbi.nlm and the Cochrane Library (http://www was ("dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors" OR "dpp-4 inhibitor" OR dutogliptin OR alogliptin OR linagliptin OR saxagliptin OR sitagliptin OR vildagliptin) AND ("type 1 diabetes" OR t1dm).
Several components of this class, including vildagliptin, sitagliptin, saxagliptin, alogliptin, and linagliptin, have already been approved for this indication by the US Food and Drug Administration or by the European Medicines Agency; others are awaiting for approval or still in development.
Hence, the present study was planned to evaluate wound healing property of linagliptin, saxagliptin, sitagliptin, and vildagliptin on excised wounds in non-diabetic Wistar albino rats.
