Other names: DPP4 inhibitors

What are Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitors

Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitors are oral antidiabetes agents that help control blood sugar levels in Type 2 diabetes patients. They inhibit the enzyme dipeptidyl peptidase 4 and regulate the levels of insulin the body produces after a meal. Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibition results in increased activity of incretins, which inhibits glucagon release. This leads to increased insulin secretion, decreased gastric emptying and therefore decreased blood sugar levels.
