Glycogen Storage Disease type 1b (GSDIb) is a genetic disorder with long term severe complications. Accumulation of the glucose analog 1,5-anhydroglucitol-6-phosphate (1,5AG6P) in neutrophils inhibits the phosphorylation of glucose in these cells, causing neutropenia and neutrophil dysfunctions. This condition leads to serious infections and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in GSDIb patients. We show here that dapagliflozin, an inhibitor of the renal sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT2), improves neutrophil function in an inducible mouse model of GSDIb by reducing 1,5AG6P accumulation in myeloid cells.

Abstract

Glycogen Storage Disease type 1b (GSDIb) is a genetic disorder with long term severe complications. Accumulation of the glucose analog 1,5-anhydroglucitol-6-phosphate (1,5AG6P) in neutrophils inhibits the phosphorylation of glucose in these cells, causing neutropenia and neutrophil dysfunctions. This condition leads to serious infections and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in GSDIb patients. We show here that dapagliflozin, an inhibitor of the renal sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT2), improves neutrophil function in an inducible mouse model of GSDIb by reducing 1,5AG6P accumulation in myeloid cells.
