As recommended pharmacological agents for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 receptor agonist (GLP-1Ra) is highly evaluated for its various beneficial effects. Among them, semaglutide (Rybelsus) has been in focus for useful oral formation with useful oral hypoglycemic agent (OHA). Administration per os is possible due to the developed technique of absorption enhancer sodium N-(8-[2-hydroxybenzoyl] amino) caprylate. Clinical efficacy was shown by a series of Peptide Innovation for Early Diabetes Treatment (PIONEER) with enough weight reduction and decreased HbA1c. From the results of several PIONEER programs, oral semaglutide 14 mg/day had reduced HbA1c values by approximately 1.0-1.4%.
