Remogliflozin etabonate (INN/USAN)[1] is a proposed drug of the gliflozin class for the treatment of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis ("NASH") and type 2 diabetes. Remogliflozin is being developed by Avolynt, Inc.[2]

Clinical trials[edit]

Remogliflozin etabonate (RE) was shown to enhance urinary glucose excretion in rodents and humans. Early studies in diabetics improved plasma glucose levels.[3][4] Remogliflozin etabonate has been studied at doses up to 1000 mg.[5] A pair of 12-week phase 2b randomized clinical trials of diabetics published in 2015, found reductions in glycated hemoglobin and that it was generally well tolerated.[6]

Method of action[edit]

Remogliflozin etabonate is a pro-drug of remogliflozin. Remogliflozin inhibits the sodium-glucose transport proteins (SGLT), which are responsible for glucose reabsorption in the kidney. Blocking this transporter causes blood glucose to be eliminated through the urine.[7] Remogliflozin is selective for SGLT2.
