Omarigliptin is a novel dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP4)-inhibitor indicated in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The incretin hormones, glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP), are released by the gut in response to food intake and an increase in blood glucose. These hormones stimulate insulin secretion in a glucosedependent manner. Additionally, GLP-1 has been shown to inhibit glucagon release and decrease in gastric emptying. In rodent studies, it promotes the regeneration and differentiation of islet β-cells. However, GLP-1 is not a stable peptide and is cleaved rapidly to its inactive form by DPP-4. Inhibition of DPP-4 prolongs the circulating half-life of glucagonlike peptide 1 and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide. By increasing the circulating concentration of GLP-1 and GIP, DPP-4 inhibitors improve glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes.
