Summary of Clinical Use
Ertugliflozin was FDA approved to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus (in conjunction with diet and exercise) in December 2017. It was approved as a single agent and in two fixed-dose combination products (Segluromet®, ertugliflozin plus the biguanide metformin, and Steglujan®, ertugliflozin plus the DPP-4 inhibitor sitagliptin).
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Ertugliflozin inhibits sodium glucose co-transporter-2 (gene symbol SLC5A2), a protein responsible for renal reabsorption of blood glucose. Inhibition of the transporter promotes urinary excretion of glucose [1,3].
