Farxiga (dapagliflozin; AstraZeneca) Drug Analysis 2017 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

Research and Markets
Posted on: 20 Feb 18

The "Drug analysis: Farxiga" drug pipelines has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Farxiga (dapagliflozin; AstraZeneca) is a member of the novel sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor class. It is approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and currently in Phase III trials for the treatment of type 1 diabetes. SGLT-2 inhibitors do not target insulin secretion or sensitivity and do not interfere with glucose metabolism. They prevent filtered glucose from being reabsorbed in the kidney rather than actively facilitating glucose filtration and excretion.

Due to this distinct mechanism of action, when SGLT-2 inhibitors are used as monotherapy, they do not lower glucose to unsafe levels and thus avoid the risk of hypoglycemia. The drug was developed as part of a joint venture between AstraZeneca and Bristol-Myers Squibb. However, AstraZeneca has taken full ownership and marketing responsibilities after buying its partner's share of the venture.
