Comment: Apraglutide (FE 203799), a synthetic 33-amino-acid peptide and a long-acting GLP-2 analogue, with amino acid substitutions (Ala2>Gly, Met10>Ahx, Asn11>D-Phe, Asn16>Leu). The peptide's circulating half-life is elevated by the incorporation of Ahx (aminocaproic acid) in place of lysine which reduces degradation by lysine-targeting proteolytic enzymes. Apraglutide enhances adaptation and linear intestinal growth in a neonatal piglet model with total resection of the ileum that mimics human short bowel syndrome [2].
