Abstract

DPP-4 inhibition offers a new approach to the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Sitagliptin is the first in this new class of agent that lowers hyperglycaemia mainly via enhancing the action of endogenous incretin hormones. Sitagliptin improves glycaemic control with a low risk of hypoglycaemia or weight gain.
