Description: Sotagliflozin, also known as LX4211, is an orally active and a dual SGLT1/SGLT2 inhibitor, which improves glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes in a randomized, placebo-controlled trial. LX4211 increases serum glucagon-like peptide 1 and peptide YY levels by reducing sodium/glucose cotransporter 1 (SGLT1)-mediated absorption of intestinal glucose. Sotagliflozin is currently being developed by Lexicon for the treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Sotagliflozin may be an effective and promising medication for treating not only Type 2 diabetes (the common target for non-insulin medications for diabetes), but also Type 1 as well.
