Miglitol | beta-glucosidase inhibitor / antidiabetic

Miglitol (72432-03-2) is an α-glucosidase inhibitor which induces an enhanced and prolonged release of glucagon-like peptide-1, regulating appetite and stabilizing body weight in humans1. Miglitol displays anti-atherothrombotic effect by reducing platelet activation2 and raising circulating adiponectin levels3 in patients with type 2 diabetes. Clinically useful antidiabetic agent.
