BYETTA (exenatide) is a synthetic peptide that was
originally identified in the lizard Heloderma suspectum. Exenatide
differs in chemical structure and pharmacological action from insulin,
sulfonylureas (including D-phenylalanine derivatives and meglitinides),
biguanides, thiazolidinediones, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors, amylinomimetics
and dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors.
Exenatide is a 39-amino acid peptide amide. Exenatide has
the empirical formula C184H282N50O60S
and molecular weight of 4186.6 Daltons. The amino acid sequence for exenatide
is shown below.
H-His-Gly-Glu-Gly-Thr-Phe-Thr-Ser-Asp-Leu-Ser-Lys-Gln-Met-Glu-Glu-Glu-Ala-Val-Arg-Leu-Phe-Ile-Glu-Trp-Leu-Lys-Asn-Gly-Gly-Pro-Ser-Ser-Gly-Ala-Pro-Pro-Pro-Ser-NH2
BYETTA is supplied for SC injection as a sterile, preserved isotonic solution in a glass cartridge that has been assembled in a
pen-injector (pen). Each milliliter (mL) contains 250 micrograms (mcg)
synthetic exenatide, 2.2 mg metacresol as an antimicrobial preservative,
mannitol as a tonicity-adjusting agent, and glacial acetic acid and sodium acetate trihydrate in water for injection as a buffering solution at pH 4.5.
Two prefilled pens are available to deliver unit doses of 5 mcg or 10 mcg. Each
prefilled pen will deliver 60 doses to provide for 30 days of twice daily
administration (BID).
