CAS#: 1000413-72-8

Description: Fasiglifam, also known as TAK-875, is a potent, selective, and orally bioavailable GPR40 agonist, with a pharmacokinetic profile enabling long-acting drug efficacy. TAK-875 showed potent plasma glucose-lowering action and insulinotropic action during an oral glucose tolerance test in female Wistar fatty rats with impaired glucose tolerance. TAK-875 is currently in clinical trials for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
