The Effects of Teneligliptin on Lipid Profile: A Prospective Study for Comparison of Biomarkers Before and After a Meal

Osamu Tomonaga, Masaki Kobayashi, Ryoma Tagawa, Yoshikazu Higami


Background: In the treatment of diabetes mellitus, it is important to prevent dyslipidemia, which is one of the complications. However, no study has examined the long-term effects of teneligliptin on the blood parameters of apolipoprotein B (apoB) after a meal in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Methods: The effects of teneligliptin on blood glucose and lipids were examined by measurement of biomarkers before and after a meal. We gathered data before and after 6-month treatment in diabetic patients.

Results: After treating 31 patients with teneligliptin for 6 months, the blood level of apoB-48, expressed as total area under the curve (tAUC), was significantly decreased. A multiple regression analysis of factors affecting the decreases in apoB-48 tAUC indicated that apoB-48 is more likely to decrease if it is higher at the start of testing, and that the apoB-48 tAUC value is more likely to fall in women than in men.

Conclusions: Teneligliptin may be beneficial for the treatment of postprandial hyperlipidemia in diabetic patients.
