Dementia with Diabetes Understanding

Dementia with Diabetes: Overview

Diabetes can cause several complications, such as damage to blood vessels. Diabetes is considered a risk factor for vascular dementia. This type of dementia occurs due to brain damage that is often caused by reduced or blocked blood flow to brain. Many people with diabetes have brain changes that are hallmarks of both Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Some researchers think that each condition fuels the damage caused by the other.

There's a lot of research suggesting a connection between diabetes and Alzheimer's-though those connections aren't yet fully understood. Not all studies confirm the connection, but many do suggest that people with diabetes, especially type 2 diabetes, are at higher risk of eventually developing Alzheimer's dementia or other dementias. Diabetes may also increase the risk of developing mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a condition in which people experience more thinking (cognitive) and memory problems than are usually present in normal aging.

Insulin in the Brain

The sensitivity of target cells in the periphery and in the central nervous system (CNS) to insulin, a peptide hormone secreted by pancreatic β-cells, is suppressed in type 2 diabetes. The CNS is rich with insulin receptors, most prominently in areas important for learning and memory, including the hippocampus, amygdala, parahippocampal gyrus, thalamus, and caudate-putamen.

Role of Insulin in Learning and Memory

A number of studies support insulin as an important factor in normal memory functioning. Potential mechanisms for the influence of insulin on memory include regional effects of insulin on cerebral glucose metabolism, influence on components of the long-term potentiation cascade, and modulation of acetylcholine and norepinephrine, neurotransmitters that are known to influence cognitive function.


Currently, there are different classes of orally available pharmacological agents to treat Type II diabetes: 1) sulfonylureas, 2) meglitinides, 3) metformin (a biguanide), 4) thiazolidinediones (TZDs), 5) alpha glucosidase inhibitors, 6) dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-4) inhibitors, 7) bile acid sequestrants, 8) dopamine agonists, and 9) sodium-glucose transport protein 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. The treatment regimen for Dementia with Diabetes includes non-insulin therapy (Metformin, Thiazolidinedione, Sulfonylureas Meglitinides, Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors and Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2)), and insulin therapy.

Dementia with Diabetes Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Dementia with Diabetes report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in the different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Dementia with Diabetes Emerging Drugs

Azeliragon (TTP488): vTv Therapeutics

Azeliragon (TTP488) is developed by vTv Therapeutics which is currently in phase II/III clinical developmental trial in patients with mild- Alzheimer's disease in patients with type 2 diabetes. Azeliragon (TTP488) is an orally bioavailable small molecule that inhibits the receptor for advanced glycation endproduct (RAGE) being developed for dementia. RAGE is an immunoglobulin-like cell surface receptor that is overexpressed in brain tissues of patients with Alzheimer's disease. vTv Therapeutics has also received fast-track designation from the US FDA for Azeliragon in Alzheimer's disease.
