Diabetes mellitus is an important problem for every country in the world. The type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) enables development of atherosclerosis and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. Blood glucose control has been shown to be the most relevant factor for the prevention of the cardiovascular complications in T2DM patients. The cardiovascular protective effect of oral antidiabetic drugs is still under investigation. In this respect, we concern to be prospective the innovative oral hypoglycaemic agents such as the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors.
