Post launch studies carried out on BGR-34 over the last one year have suggested its efficacy in treating pre-diabetic patients or for mild conditions like monotherapy as the drug effectively managed blood glucose homeostasis. In case of chronic and severe instances, it could be used as an adjuvant therapy to synthetic anti-diabetics. BGR-34 is found to provide valuable hepatoprotective, nephroprotective and dislipdemic activities to the advantage of diabetic patients.
