Latest research on Amaryl

Glimepiride is the first III generation sulphonyl urea it is a very potent sulphonyl urea with long duration of action.

Latest findings

We found that a review for one drug in COPD (Arcapta Neohaler) mentioned a MID and reviews for 12 drugs in diabetes (Avandaryl, Symlin, Duetact, Exubera, Januvia, BYETTA, Cycloset, Onglyza, Kombiglyze XR, Victoza, Tradjenta and Bydureon) mentioned a threshold (number of patients achieving the target haemoglobin A1C level) that is linked to patient-centred outcomes.

The label of glimepiride Amaryl (sanofi aventis) recommends that the drug be given with the first main meal or the breakfast. [source, 2015]
Glimepiride (Amaryl) is a sulfonylurea containing a pyrrole group, acting as antihyperglycemic drug [22]. [source, 2014]
Glimepiride (Amaryl) was used as a standard antidiabetic (4 mg/kg) in 1% gum acacia and administered orally [32]. [source, 2014]
Group 1 was diabetic control; Group 2, diabetic + Glimepiride (Amaryl) (4 mg/kg), served as a reference antidiabetic drug. [source, 2014]
The treated groups administered the Amaryl and different derivatives orally. [source, 2014]
The synthesized compounds were assessed for their antihyperglycemic activity, which is comparable to Glimepiride (Amaryl) the standard antihyperglycemic drug, by comparing the mean area under the curve (AUC) for the blood glucose level between the different studied groups. [source, 2014]
Comparing the antihyperglycemic activity of the these compounds with that of the reference antidiabetic drug (Amaryl) showed that compounds Ia, Ic, and Ie showed significant decrease in the blood glucose level (109.4%, 116.2%, and 97%, respectively) when compared to the activity of Amaryl, as shown in Figure 3.

CoQ10 and STZ were purchased from Sigma-Aldrich Co. (St Louis, MO, USA) and glimepiride (Amaryl) from Sanofi-Aventis Co. (Zeitoun, Cairo, Egypt), while long-acting insulin (Monotard) was obtained from Novo Nordisk Co. (Copenhagen, Denmark). [source, 2014]
Reminyl was renamed Razadyne in 2005 to help avoid confusion with the diabetes drug Amaryl. [source, 2013]
