AFRICANEWSWIRE.NET (May, 12 2012) A group of scientists at Department of Medicine, Division of Clinical Epidemiology at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute, Mount Sinai Hospital, University of Toronto, Canada recently published their suggestions on shortening the evaluation process for Metformin and outlined “the key steps that will optimize development of this agent in breast cancer”.
Although the beneficial effects other than lowering sugar levels had been observed, the first record of Metformin’s ability of lowering cancer risk is a study from Dundee University in the UK published in British Medical Journal in 2005. The observational study found that “type 2 diabetics on Metformin had a lower risk of cancer (40% in this study) compared to those taking other diabetes drugs”.
There are many research programs and trials on Metformin as a cancer prevention drug in Canada, US and other parts of the world
“If the trials can confirm the Metformin’s ability to prevent cancers, the humble, inexpensive and widely used diabetes drug will save millions of people from getting cancer”, stated an industry analyst, noting these favourable developments.
Though, Metformin was first formulated in 1920s and found to lower the blood sugar levels, it was introduced in UK in 1957 and in US in 1995. Today Metformin is the most widely prescribed drug and the most preferred first line treatment for type 2 diabetes.
A spokesperson for Big Mountain Drugs, a leading Canadian pharmacy stated, “Our range of diabetes drugs include both brand name and generic drugs offering the customers to select less expensive options. The widely used drugs like Actos, Glucophane, Fortamet, Glucovance, Januvia, Prandin and Tradjenta are available with us at most competitive prices. Our price for 100 tablet pack of metformin is $25 while US pharmacies sell the same drug at three to four times that price.”
According to the chief pharmacist at BMD, Metformin has low risk of hypoglycemia compared to many other diabetes medications. It may cause gastrointestinal upsets and there is no significant risk when prescribed appropriately and used strictly according to the instructions. With the extensive clinical experience, Metformin is considered as a safe drug. Today, many companies manufacture Metformin. More than 15 manufacturers have got FDA approval to sell this important drug in US.
