Vildagliptin (Galvus) is a selective inhibitor of dipeptidylpeptidase-4, an enzyme involved in the metabolism of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) secreted by L cells of the intestine. It potentiates the insulin secretory response (incretin effect) by enhancing the endogenous post-prandial response of GLP-1 (incretin enhancer) in a glucose-dependent manner. Vildagliptin is indicated in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It improves blood glucose control (HbA1c) in patients treated by diet alone, metformin, sulfonylurea, glitazone or insulin. In patients not well controlled with metformin alone, the addition of vildagliptin is as effective in reducing HbA1c as the coadministration of glimepiride or pioglitazone. Tolerance of vildagliptin is excellent, with no weight gain and no hypoglycaemic episodes. Treatment is simple, with two doses of 50 mg per day, without need of titration or home blood glucose monitoring. In Belgium, vildagliptin is currently reimbursed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes after diet failure and monotherapy with metformin. Therapy can be administered separately or by using a fixed combination vildagliptin-metformin (Eucreas), which should improve drug compliance. [less ▲]

Background: Patients with anorexia nervosa (AN) are at high risk of renal failure. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is overestimated when estimated by the creatinine-based equations. We have studied the accuracy and precision of cystatin C-based equations. Method: 27 AN patients were included. GFR was measured with the chromium-51-ethylenediaminetetraacetate (51Cr-EDTA) method. We have compared the accuracy and precision of creatinine-based equations (MDRD and Cockcroft) with those of different new cystatin C-based equations. Results: The creatinine-based equations overestimate measured GFR, especially the MDRD study equation. All the cystatin C-based equations also overestimate measured GFR. The Cockcroft and Gault formula and the cystatin C-based equation published by Rule have the best accuracy and precision, but these last performances remain unsatisfactory. Conclusion: Both creatinine and cystatin C-based equations strongly overestimate measured in patients with AN. [less ▲]

This is a retrospective analysis of medical records in 4 Belgian diabetes centres of 3 cohorts of patients with type 2 diabetes, with data available, respectively, after 3 months < or =163 patients exposed), 6 months (n=77) and 9 months (n=28) with exenatide therapy. This analysis mainly focuses on the 3 and 6 month cohorts. The mean HbA1 level at baseline averaged 9% and decreased by -1.3% and -1.4% at 3 and 6 months, respectively (-1.5% at 9 months). Neither the duration of diabetes nor initial body weight did influence the metabolic response. The decrease in HbA(1c) at 6 months was greater in patients with higher baseline HbA(1c):-0.5%, -1.4% and -2.4% for a baseline HbA(1c) level <8%, 8-10% and >10%, respectively. At 6 months, the composite criterion of a reduction of HbA(1c) by >1% or a final level <7% was reached by 69% of the cohort. Body weight decreased continuously over time, with a mean reduction of -2.1 kg at 3 months and -3.0 kg at 6 months (-4.9 kg at 9 months). The greater the baseline body weight, the greater the weight loss at final evaluation. Minor nausea and more rarely vomiting were observed, essentially during the first months of exenatide treatment. According to this observational study in routine practice, exenatide may be a valuable alternative to insulin for intensification of treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes after failure of oral drug combination, independently of baseline HbA(1c), body weight and duration of diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is associated with a high risk of complications, essentially macrovascular events. Surprisingly, the effect of improved glucose control on coronary and cerebrovascular complications in this population remains questionable. Furthermore, the target level of glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) to minimise the risk of diabetic complications is controversial. We report the results of three recent randomised control trials (ACCORD, ADVANCE, Veterans Affairs Diabetes), which assessed the impact on cardiovascular events of intensive glucose-lowering therapy. None of these studies was able to demonstrate a significant reduction of cardiovascular events in the intensive group as compared to the standard group. On the contrary, in ACCORD, the study with the most ambitious goal (HbA1c < 6%), the overall and cardiovascular mortality was greater in the intensive group. In contrast, in the ADVANCE trial, the mortality and the incidence of cardiovascular events were not statistically different between the two treatment groups, whereas the risk of microangiopathic complications, especially nephropathy, was significantly decreased in the intensive group (HbA1c < or = 6.5%, with modified release gliclazide as main treatment). Finally, VA-Diabetes showed that the effect of better glucose control on cardiovascular complications disappeared with duration of the disease and that the risk of cardiovascular events increased in patients with severe hypoglycaemic episodes. In the three studies, the hypoglycaemic risk was indeed increased in the intensive group, which may contribute to reduce the positive impact of better glucose control on cardiovascular complications. The best way to protect type 2 diabetic patients against coronary and cerebrovascular disease is to target all cardiovascular risk factors. [less ▲]

Endocannabinoid system is overactivated in individuals with abdominal obesity. CBI receptors, first individualized in the brain, are also expressed in the adipocyte, the skeletal muscle, the liver, the gut, and the pancreas. Their blockade improves glucose tolerance and lipid profile, thanks increased insulin sensitivity and adiponectin levels. Rimonabant, a selective antagonist of CBI receptors, improves glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes, treated with diet alone, metformin, sulfonylurea or insulin, while it also reduces body weight and other risk factors. Ongoing studies aim at further demonstrating the potential of rimonabant in the management of type 2 diabetes, in the prevention of type 2 diabetes and in the protection against cardiovascular complications in (diabetic) patients with abdominal obesity.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Abdominal obesity is closely related to type 2 diabetes and overactivity of the endocannabinoid system. The present review aims at evaluating the role of endocannabinoid system in glucose dysregulation and the effects of cannabinoid 1 receptor blockade on glucose metabolism in both animal models and overweight/obese humans, especially with type 2 diabetes. RECENT FINDINGS: Cannabinoid 1 receptors have been identified not only in the brain, but also in the adipose tissue, the gut, the liver, the skeletal muscle and even the pancreas, all organs playing a key role in glucose metabolism and type 2 diabetes. Rimonabant, the first selective cannabinoid 1 receptor blocker in clinical use, has been shown to reduce body weight, waist circumference, glycated haemoglobin, triglycerides, insulin resistance index, and to increase HDL cholesterol and adiponectin concentrations in patients with type 2 diabetes, confirming data on nondiabetic overweight/obese patients. Almost half of the metabolic changes, including glycated haemoglobin reduction, could not be explained by weight loss, in agreement with direct peripheral effects. SUMMARY: Cannabinoid 1 blockade reduces food intake and body weight and improves metabolic regulation beyond just weight loss. Because of its positive effect on glucose metabolism, rimonabant deserves consideration in the treatment of overweight/obese patients with type 2 diabetes. [less ▲]

A 10-year post-trial monitoring of patients with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes randomised in the "United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study" (UKPDS) demonstrated a continued reduction in microvascular risk (-24%, p = 0.001) and emergent risk reductions for myocardial infarction (-15%, p = 0.01) and death from any cause (-13%, p = 0.007), despite an early loss of glycaemic differences ("legacy effect"). A continued benefit after metformin therapy was evident during the ten-year post-trial follow-up among overweight patients (-33%, p = 0.005 for myocardial infarction and -27%, p = 0.002 for death from any cause). In contrast, the benefits of previously improved blood pressure control were not sustained when between-groups differences in blood pressure were lost during follow-up, except for a reduced risk for peripheral vascular disease. These observations are strong arguments in favour of an early optimisation of blood glucose control and of a sustained control of blood pressure in patients with type 2 diabetes. [less ▲]

Background: Patients with anorexia nervosa (AN) are at a high risk of renal failure. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is often missed in these patients because the serum creatinine is a poor marker of kidney function. We studied the utility of cystatin C to detect renal failure in this population. Method: Twenty-seven AN patients were studied. Glomerular filtration rates (GFR) were measured with the chromium-51- ethylenediaminetetraacetate ((51)Cr-EDTA) method. We compared the ability of creatinine and cystatin C to detect stage 3 CKD (GFR below 60 ml/min) by ROC curve analysis. Results: In this cohort, there is no correlation between GFR and serum creatinine, but there is a significant correlation between cystatin C and GFR. By ROC analysis, the cystatin C concentration is better than the serum creatinine concentration for the detection of stage 3 CKD (area under the curve of 0.86 vs. 0.61, p = 0.05). Conclusion: Plasma cystatin C is better than serum creatinine in detecting stage 3 CKD in patients with AN. [less ▲]

Glucose is almost the only energy substrate for the brain. Such glucose dependence explains why any large variation of plasma glucose levels could lead to cerebral dysfunction, which may be severe and progress to a coma. Hypoglycaemic coma, the most common one, has a pure metabolic origin (neuroglucopenia) whereas hyperglycaemic coma is more complex and mainly due to osmotic disturbances. Besides acute changes of plasma glucose concentrations, it is generally recognized that more subtle chronic or recurrent glucose abnormalities could also result in brain dysfunction. However, such clinical consequences are more difficult to assess in clinical practice. Nevertheless, learning perturbations in young patients with type 1 diabetes and memory losses, sometimes severe and subject to progress to dementia ("diabetic encephalopathy") in older type 1 or type 2 diabetic patients, have been reported, although with some controversy. The present paper summarizes the current knowledge of both acute and chronic cerebral dysfunctions following perturbations of blood glucose levels in diabetic patients. [less ▲]

The present paper is reviewing the current place of weight-reducing drugs in the overall management of overweight/obese subjects, especially those with metabolic disorders and type 2 diabetes. Anti-obesity agents should be carefully evaluated in long-term (1-2 years) randomized controlled trials. Recent systematic reviews and meta-analysis assessed both the safety and efficacy of the two drugs currently used in the treatment of obesity, i.e. orlistat, a gastric and pancreatic lipase inhibitor that reduces fat absorption from the gut, and sibutramine, a combined norepinephrine and serotonin reuptake inhibitor that regulates food intake. Rimonabant, a new compound acting as selective blocker of CB1 receptors of the endocannabinoid system, raises much interest as it promotes weight reduction by a central effect and also exerts peripheral effects targeting cardiometabolic risk. Special attention will be paid to beneficial metabolic effects resulting from (even moderate) weight loss and to possible additional effects beyond weight reduction. [less ▲]

It enhances insulin secretion in a glucose-dependent manner, inhibits glucagon secretion, retards gastric emptying,... Two pharmacological approaches have been developed to increase the abnormally low GLP-1 levels in type 2 diabetic patients: either to subcutaneously inject an agent closed to GLP-1 (exenatide), which is partially resistant to the action of DPP-4, either to orally administer a selective DPP-4 inhibitor (sitagliptin,...).

Type 2 diabetes is a complex disease characterized by a dual defect of insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity, which may vary from patient to patient, but also along the natural history of the disease in a particular patient. Besides the lifestyle changes, the treatment strategy comprises the administration of agents that promote insulin secretion and/or that improve insulin sensitivity. Drugs facilitating weight loss also improve glucose control by reducing insulin resistance. A global approach should be recommended to reduce the high cardiovascular risk of diabetic patients. The present article aims at summarizing our contribution to the development of drugs designed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. [less ▲]

The recent epidemic of type 2 diabetes and the recognition that achieving specific glycemic goals can reduce morbidity have made the effective treatment of hyperglycemia a priority. The new therapeutic agents and the development of algorithms for the adjustment of therapy might contribute to an improved management of the disease. Moreover, type 2 diabetes is frequently associated with other co-morbidities (obesity, hypertension, dyslipidaemia, prothrombotic state). The appropriate management of patients with type 2 diabetes requires a global approach targeting each risk factor in order to reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. This challenge represents a major public health issue. In type 1 diabetes patients, intensive therapy such as in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) has been shown to obtain long-term beneficial effects on the reduction of the risk of progressive retinopathy, neuropathy and nephropathy and of the risk of cardiovascular disease. This benefit reinforces the original DCCT message that intensive therapy should be implemented as early as possible in people with type 1 diabetes. The recent development of new insulin analogues and the technical improvements of portable insulin pumps might contribute to obtain such a better metabolic control. [less ▲]

The management of an obese patient aims not only at obtaining a durable weight loss, but also at attenuating various associated risk factors. This latter objective may already be obtained with a rather moderate weight reduction (5-10% of initial body weight). The first step should favour life-style changes (diet and physical exercise), eventually together with a psychological support. In case of insufficient success, a pharmacological approach may be considered, in addition to life-style advices. Pharmacotherapy currently includes drugs that act on the central nervous system to decrease appetite (sibutramine), in the gastrointestinal tract to diminish fat absorption (orlistat) or at both central and peripheral sites (rimonabant). In case of extreme obesity or severe obesity associated with comorbidities, refractory to medical approaches, bariatric surgery may represent the only solution to obtain a major and sustained weight loss, together with a significant improvement of associated risk factors. Gastroplasty, especially laparoscopic gastric banding, has become very popular in our country. However, because of several limitations, it is increasingly replaced by derivative procedures, especially gastric bypass. In all cases, a multidisciplinary, integrated and individualized approach should be recommended, using realistic goals and targeting long-term weight reduction and improved health. [less ▲]
