How to use
Vildagliptin promotes beta cell survival by inhibiting cell apoptosis. Vildagliptin also promotes cell proliferation.
Vildagliptin (35 mg/kg; once daily by oral gavage) increases plasma active GLP-1 levels in islets of db/db mice. Vildagliptin (10 µmol/kg; orally) significantly decreases glucose excursions and stimulate insulin secretion in obese male Zucker rats.
