Chemical Dipeptidyl-Peptidase IV Inhibitors

Name Dipeptidyl-Peptidase IV Inhibitors
Equivalent Terms Dipeptidyl Peptidase 4 Inhibitors | Dipeptidyl-Peptidase 4 Inhibitors | Dipeptidyl Peptidase IV Inhibitors | Gliptins | Inhibitors, Dipeptidyl-Peptidase IV
Definition Compounds that suppress the degradation of INCRETINS by blocking the action of DIPEPTIDYL-PEPTIDASE IV. This helps to correct the defective INSULIN and GLUCAGON secretion characteristic of TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS by stimulating insulin secretion and suppressing glucagon release.
