Mechanism of Action
Teneligliptin inhibits human plasma DPP-4 activity and recombinant human DPP-4 activity in a concentration-dependent manner with half-maximal inhibitory concentrations (IC50) of 1.75 (95% CI, 1.62–1.89) nmol/L and 0.889 (95% CI, 0.812–0.973) nmol/L
Oral administration of teneligliptin (0.1, 0.3, or 1.0 mg/kg) in rats showed rapid absorption
Peak plasma concentration take max. time to reached in 0.75–0.88 h
About 34.4% of teneligliptin is excreted unchanged via the kidney and the remaining 65.6% teneligliptin is metabolized and eliminated via renal and hepatic excretion; 216 hours after the administration of 14C-labeled teneligliptin (20 mg), the cumulative excretion percentages of radioactive teneligliptin in urine and feces.
In fasting condition of the patients, the drug bioavailability is about 50% to 60%. Food decreases the absorption of drug.
The volume of distribution is 654±358 L. It rarely bonds to plasma protein. It does not follow hepatic metabolism.
