Targeting a microRNA Shows Potential to Enhance Effectiveness of Diabetes Drugs

RS19234_AnanthShalev-SeongHoJo-4-scr.jpg

Researchers have found a vital role for miR-204 in beta cells — regulating the cell surface receptor that is the target of many of the newer type 2 diabetes drugs, such as Byetta, Victoza, Trulicity, Januvia, Onglyza and Tradjenta. This drug target is the glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor, or GLP1R.
