Linagliptin, sold under the brand name Tradjenta among others, is a medication used to treat diabetes mellitus type 2.[4] I

It is generally less preferred than metformin and sulfonylureas as an initial treatment.[4][5] It is used together with exercise and diet.[4] It is not recommended in type 1 diabetes.[4] It is taken by mouth.[4]

Common side effects include inflammation of the nose and throat.[4] Serious side effects may include angioedema, pancreatitis, joint pain.[5][4] Use in pregnancy and breastfeeding is not recommended.[5] Linagliptin is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor.[4] It works by increasing the production of insulin and decreasing the production of glucagon by the pancreas.[4]

Linagliptin was approved for medical use in the United States in 2011.[4] In 2018, it was the 177th most commonly prescribed medication in the United States, with more than 3 million prescriptions.[6][7]

Results in 2010, from a Phase III clinical trial of linagliptin, showed that the drug can effectively reduce blood sugar.[8]

Side effects

Linagliptin may cause severe joint pain.[3][9]

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning that the type 2 diabetes medicines like sitagliptin, saxagliptin, linagliptin, and alogliptin may cause joint pain that can be severe and disabling. The FDA has added a new Warning and Precaution about this risk to the labels of all medicines in this drug class, called dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors.

Trajenta’s Prescribing Information[10] states the drug is contraindicated for people with bronchial hyperreactivity (for example, asthma).

Mechanism of action

Linagliptin belongs to a class of drugs called DPP-4 inhibitors.


Linagliptin is the INN.[11]

Mechanism of Action

Linagliptin is an inhibitor of DPP-4, an enzyme that degrades the incretin hormones glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). Thus, linagliptin increases the concentrations of active incretin hormones, stimulating the release of insulin in a glucose-dependent manner and decreasing the levels of glucagon in the circulation.

Both incretin hormones are involved in the physiological regulation of glucose homeostasis. Incretin hormones are secreted at a low basal level throughout the day and levels rise immediately after meal intake. GLP-1 and GIP increase insulin biosynthesis and secretion from pancreatic beta-cells in the presence of normal and elevated blood glucose levels. Furthermore, GLP-1 also reduces glucagon secretion from pancreatic alpha cells, resulting in a reduction in hepatic glucose output.
