GLUCOTROL SUMMARY

GLUCOTROL (glipizide) is an oral blood-glucose-lowering drug of the sulfonylurea class.

GLUCOTROL is indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Effects of metformin versus glipizide on cardiovascular outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease. [2013]
CONCLUSIONS: Treatment with metformin for 3 years substantially reduced major

Effects of Metformin Versus Glipizide on Cardiovascular Outcomes in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes and Coronary Artery Disease. [2012]
OBJECTIVEThe two major classes of antidiabetic drugs, sulfonylureas and metformin, may differentially affect macrovascular complications and mortality in diabetic patients. We compared the long-term effects of glipizide and metformin on the major cardiovascular events in type 2 diabetic patients who had a history of coronary artery disease (CAD).RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODSThis study is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial...

Dapagliflozin versus glipizide as add-on therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes who have inadequate glycemic control with metformin: a randomized, 52-week, double-blind, active-controlled noninferiority trial. [2011.09]
CONCLUSIONS: Despite similar 52-week glycemic efficacy, dapagliflozin reduced weight and produced less hypoglycemia than glipizide in type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled with metformin. Long-term studies are required to further evaluate genital and urinary tract infections with SGLT2 inhibitors.

Meal fat storage in subcutaneous adipose tissue: comparison of pioglitazone and glipizide treatment of type 2 diabetes. [2010.10]
Treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) with pioglitazone changes abdominal fat in the opposite direction as treatment with glipizide. To determine whether these two medications affect adipose tissue meal fatty acid storage differently we studied 19 T2DM treated with either pioglitazone (n = 8) or glipizide (n = 11) and 11 non-DM control subjects matched for age, BMI, abdominal and leg fat...

Lack of an effect of pioglitazone or glipizide on lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 in type 2 diabetes. [2007.03]
OBJECTIVE: To study the effects of pioglitazone, a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-y agonist with vascular beneficial effects, and glipizide, an insulin secretagogue, on novel inflammatory vascular risk markers in subjects with and without type 2 diabetes... CONCLUSION: Type 2 diabetes is associated with elevated concentrations of the novel vascular risk marker LpPLA2 and inflammatory risk markers e-selectin and VCAM-1. Neither pioglitazone nor glipizide significantly altered LpPLA2, VCAM-1, or highly sensitive C-reactive protein levels after 12 weeks of therapy. In study subjects with type 2 diabetes, e-selectin concentrations declined significantly with pioglitazone therapy, whereas ICAM-1 concentrations decreased significantly with glipizide therapy.

Clinical Trials Related to Glucotrol (Glipizide)

Sitagliptin vs Glipizide in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Chronic Renal Insufficiency [Recruiting]
The purpose of the study is to compare how sitagliptin and glipizide lower blood glucose levels in patients with moderate and severe renal insufficiency.

Sitagliptin vs Glipizide in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and End-Stage Renal Disease [Recruiting]
The purpose of the study is to compare sitagliptin and glipizide in lowering blood sugar in patients with end-stage renal disease on dialysis.

Study to Understand the Genetics of the Acute Response to Metformin and Glipizide in Humans [Recruiting]
The SUGARMGH investigators are studying the influence of inherited gene variants on the response to two commonly prescribed type 2 diabetes medications, metformin and glipizide. They hypothesize that variants in genes that are associated with type 2 diabetes or related traits may impact the effect of anti-diabetic medications. In addition, physiological responses to an insulin secretagogue or an insulin sensitizer may shed light on the mechanism of action of reported genetic associations.

Outpatient Discharge Therapy With Saxagliptin+MetforminXR vs GlipizideXL for Type 2 Diabetes With Severe Hyperglycemia [Recruiting]
Saxagliptin + Metformin XR (S+M) will be effective in stabilizing blood glucose (BG) levels in patients with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes (T2DM) with severe hyperglycemia (BG levels 300 to 450 mg/dl) and glucose toxicity and with no criteria for inpatient admission or occurrence of severe hypoglycemia compared to glipizide XL. The study may provide preliminary evidence to support the role of S+M as a bridging, stabilizing and safe therapy in patients with severe hyperglycemia

A Study of MK-3102 in Participants With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus With Chronic Kidney Disease or Kidney Failure on Dialysis (MK-3102-019) [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of MK-3102 in participants with type 2 diabetes mellitus and moderate or severe chronic renal insufficiency or end stage renal disease on dialysis with inadequate glycemic control. The primary hypothesis of the study is that MK-3102 compared to placebo produces greater reduction in glycosylated hemoglobin (A1C) after 24 weeks.
