Diabetes, metabolic syndrome and obesity : targets and therapy
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of the type-4 dipeptidyl peptidase (DPP-4) inhibitors linagliptin and vildagliptin as well as the sulfonylurea glimepiride on endothelium-dependent relaxation of aortae from female db/db mice with established hyperglycemia to determine whether these treatments were able to attenuate diabetes-induced endothelial dysfunction.
