Diabetes Mellitus and Antidiabetic Agents

The incidence of diabetes (DM) is increasing rapidly. More than 90% of these cases are type 1 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), and the remaining types include type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and hybrid forms of diabetes. Effective control of blood glucose is the basis of treatment for all patients with diabetes. While T1DM patients need lifelong insulin replacement therapy, for some T2DM patients, especially whose β-cells remain certain insulin-secreting function, oral hypoglycemic agents (OADs) can be used. Since blood glucose is a major driving factor of diabetes, glucose-based molecules have been extensively studied for diabetes treatment.

Presently, there are several antidiabetic drugs used to treat or manage diabetes and the mechanisms of action of these drugs are well known. These include the inhibition of α-amylase, α-glucosidase, lipase, and dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV). Therefore, the development of carbohydrate-based antidiabetic glycomedicine acting on these two inhibitors has received increasing attention.
