Mechanism of action of Vildagliptin :Vildagliptin Works By Increasing The Amount Of Two Incretin Hormones Found In The Body, Called Glucagon-like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) And Glucose-dependent Insulinotropic Peptide (GIP). Firstly, They Stimulate The Pancreas To Produce Insulin In Response To Increasing Levels Of Glucose In The Blood. GLP-1 Also Reduces The Production Of Glucagon (hormone That Normally Increases Glucose Production By The Liver). GLP-1 And GIP Are Normally Broken Down By An Enzyme In The Body Called Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 (DPP-4). Vildagliptin Works By Binding To This Enzyme And Preventing It From Breaking Down GLP-1 And GIP And Thus Reducing The High Blood Glucose Level.
