Astellas Pharma, Inc. and MSD K.K. Announce Availability of Diabetes Drug in Japan

Astellas Pharma, Inc. and MSD K.K. have announced the availability of Suglat tablets 25mg and 50mg for the indication of type 2 diabetes in Japan. Suglat Tablets is a selective SGLT2 (Sodium-Glucose Co-Transporter 2) inhibitor discovered through a research collaboration and is being jointly developed by Astellas and Kotobuki Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. SGLTs are membrane proteins that exist on the cell surface and transfer glucose into cells. SGLT2 is one subtype of SGLTs and plays a key role in the reuptake of glucose in the proximal tubule of the kidneys. Suglat Tablets reduces blood glucose levels by inhibiting the reuptake of glucose by selectively inhibiting SGLT2. Suglat Tablets is the first SGLT2 inhibitor approved as a treatment for type 2 diabetes in Japan. Astellas will manufacture and sell Suglat Tablets and co-promote it with Kotobuki and MSD.
