    Issued: October 16, 2001
    Inventor(s): Demuth; Hans-Ulrich & Rosche; Fred & Schmidt; Joem & Pauly; Robert P. & McIntosh; Christopher H. S. & Pederson; Ray A.
    Assignee(s): Probiodrug
    Novel therapeutic regimens are provided which comprise the administration of therapeutically effective amounts of an inhibitor to dipeptidyl peptidase (DP-IV) or enzymes of similar activity whereby their ability to degrade the incretins, GLP-1 and GIP, is reduced. As a result hyperglycemia, such as that accompanying food intake may be reduced due to improved insulin release. A preferred therapeutic regimen amongst a number of routes of administration and inhibitors that may be used comprises the oral administration of isoleucyl thiazolidine.

Glossary

TermDefinition
Drug PatentA drug patent is assigned by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and assigns exclusive legal right to the patent holder to protect the proprietary chemical formulation. The patent assigns exclusive legal right to the inventor or patent holder, and may include entities such as the drug brand name, trademark, product dosage form, ingredient formulation, or manufacturing process A patent usually expires 20 years from the date of filing, but can be variable based on many factors, including development of new formulations of the original chemical, and patent infringement litigation.
Drug ExclusivityExclusivity is the sole marketing rights granted by the FDA to a manufacturer upon the approval of a drug and may run simultaneously with a patent. Exclusivity periods can run from 180 days to seven years depending upon the circumstance of the exclusivity grant.
RLDA Reference Listed Drug (RLD) is an approved drug product to which new generic versions are compared to show that they are bioequivalent. A drug company seeking approval to market a generic equivalent must refer to the Reference Listed Drug in its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA). By designating a single reference listed drug as the standard to which all generic versions must be shown to be bioequivalent, FDA hopes to avoid possible significant variations among generic drugs and their brand name counterpart.
