We hypothesised that the glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist lixisenatide would improve postprandial glucose tolerance in totally pancreatectomised patients.METHODS: In a double-blinded, randomised, crossover study, 12 totally pancreatectomised individuals (age: 65.0 ± 9.5 mean±SD years; BMI: 22.9 ± 3.9 kg/m2) and 12 healthy control individuals (age 66.1 ± 7.6 years; BMI: 24.0 ± 2.9 kg/m2) underwent two 3 h liquid mixed-meal tests (with paracetamol for assessment of gastric emptying) after single-dose injection of 20 μg of lixisenatide or placebo. Basal insulin was given the night before each experimental day; no insulin was given during study days.RESULTS: Compared with placebo, lixisenatide reduced postprandial plasma glucose excursions in the pancreatectomy group (baseline-subtracted AUC [bsAUC] [mean±SEM]: 548 ± 125 vs 1447 ± 95 mmol/l × min, p < 0.001) and in the control group (-126 ± 12 vs 222 ± 51 mmol/l × min, p < 0.001). In the pancreatectomy group a mean peak glucose concentration of 23.3 ± 1.0 mmol/l was reached at time point 134 ± 11 min with placebo, compared with a mean peak glucose concentration of 18 ± 1.4 mmol/l (p = 0.008) at time point 148 ± 13 min (p = 0.375) with lixisenatide. In the control group a mean peak concentration of 8.2 ± 0.4 mmol/l was reached at time point 70 ± 13 min with placebo, compared with a mean peak concentration of 5.5 ± 0.1 mmol/l (p < 0.001) at time point 8 ± 25 min (p = 0.054) with lixisenatide. Lixisenatide also reduced gastric emptying and postprandial glucagon responses in the pancreatectomy group (66 ± 84 vs 1190 ± 311 pmol/l × min, p = 0.008) and in the control group (141 ± 100 vs 190 ± 100 pmol/l × min, p = 0.034). In the pancreatectomy group, C-peptide was undetectable in plasma. In the control group, postprandial plasma C-peptide responses were reduced with lixisenatide (18 ± 17 vs 189 ± 31 nmol/l × min, p < 0.001).CONCLUSIONS/INTERPRETATION: The GLP-1 receptor agonist lixisenatide reduces postprandial plasma glucose excursions in totally pancreatectomised patients.
