Trulicity® (dulaglutid): Glykemisk kontroll

Farmakokinetiken för Trulicity (dulaglutid) stödjer dosering en gång i veckan hos patienter med typ 2-diabetes mellitus.

Detailed Information

Dulaglutide improves glycemic control by lowering fasting, pre-meal, and postprandial glucose concentrations in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.1

Dulaglutide demonstrates gradual absorption and elimination resulting in a relatively flat and stable concentration-time profile over a once-weekly dosing interval at steady state, making it suitable for once-weekly administration.2

A post hoc analysis of the AWARD-3 study was conducted to assess for variability in glycemic control during the week due to peak and trough effects of once-weekly dulaglutide treatment.3 

The AWARD-3 study was selected as it was the only AWARD study where dulaglutide was not used in combination with other antihyperglycemic therapies.3

Eight-point SMBG profiles were collected from patients treated with dulaglutide 1.5 mg and dulaglutide 0.75 mg within 7 days prior to week 26 that included

  • premeal and 2 hours postmeal for morning, midday, and evening

  • bedtime

  • 3 AM, or 

  • 5 hours after bedtime.3

The mean daily SMBG values on days when the plasma dulaglutide concentration was highest and lowest for the week (peak days [day 2/3] and trough days [day 6/7]) were compared.3

The mean daily SMBG concentrations were equivalent for both dulaglutide 1.5 mg and dulaglutide 0.75 mg doses during the peak and trough concentration days (Figure 1).

Abbreviation: SMBG= self-monitored blood glucose.

The mean difference in mean daily SMBG concentrations between peak and trough days for dulaglutide 1.5 mg (mean difference -6.55[90 CI, -12.51 to -2.37]) and dulaglutide 0.75 mg (mean difference 0.91[90 CI, -8.65 to 2.31]) were within the 10% clinically acceptable margin of the lower mean peak or trough mean daily SMBG concentrations, allowing them to be considered equivalent.3 

Based on pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic modeling, the estimated concentration of dulaglutide remained above the minimum effective concentration of 8.7 ng/mL that was needed to achieve a clinically meaningful HbA1c reduction of 0.4% throughout the week.3
