Main Use Active Ingredient Marketed Name
Treatment of type 2 diabetes Vildagliptin Galvus

Uses
Galvus (Vildagliptin) belongs to a drugs with a hypoglycemic effect, which is achieved by increasing insulin secretion and reducing glucagon release.

Galvus (Vildagliptin) is a stimulator of the pancreas insular apparatus, selectively inhibits the enzyme dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4). Rapid and complete inhibition of the activity of DPP-4 (> 90%) causes an increase in both basal and food-stimulated secretion of glucagon-like type 1 peptide (GLP-1).

Increasing the concentration of GLP-1, Galvus (Vildagliptin) causes an increase in the sensitivity of pancreas β-cells to glucose, which leads to an improvement in glucose-dependent insulin secretion.

With using vildagliptin 50–100 mg / day in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), an improvement in the function of β-cells of the pancreas is noted. The degree of improvement in β-cell function depends on the degree of their initial damage; so in persons not suffering from diabetes (with a normal concentration of glucose in the blood plasma), vildagliptin does not stimulate insulin secretion and does not reduce the level of glucose.

By increasing the concentration of endogenous GLP-1, vildagliptin increases the sensitivity of α-cells to glucose, which leads to an improvement in glucose-dependent regulation of glucagon secretion.
