The original drug in this class, Byetta (exenatide, given as two injections a day), was derived from a compound found in the saliva of the Gila monster, a lizard that lives in the southwestern US. This Gila spit compound has a structure similar to GLP-1 but is broken down more slowly by the enzyme DPP-4. Byetta received FDA approval in 2005. A second unrelated GLP-1 agonist Victoza (liraglutide, given as one injection a day) became available in 2010. Bydureon (exenatide extended-release, given as one injection a week after being mixed) received approval in 2012, and was followed by approval for a Bydureon pen (one injection a week, easier to mix) that should become available in the second half of 2014. Additional GLP-1 agonists are being developed.
