Incretins are a group of metabolic hormones that stimulate on the decrease in blood glucose levels. Incretin-based drugs include dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors and Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists, which are a relatively new group of drugs used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. These drugs are associated with a low risk of hypoglycemia and have the favorable effect on body weight. Oral anti-diabetic drugs fail to maintain the desired normal levels of glucose, particularly during postprandial conditions, this has resulted in a strong need for better therapeutics like incretin-based drugs. Incretin-based drugs increase the secretion of insulin by acting on pancreatic beta cells and also inhibits the release of glucagon by acting on the pancreatic alpha cells. Incretin-based drugs namely Incretin mimetics (GLP-1 agonist) and DPP-4 inhibitors work on the antidiabetic principle of incretin hormone.
