Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are at high risk for cardiovascular (CV) disease; however, conclusive evidence that glycemic control leads to improved cardiovascular outcomes is lacking. Saxagliptin is a potent, selective dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor approved as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess efficacy and safety of saxagliptin monotherapy for up to 76 weeks in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and inadequate glycemic control, with main efficacy assessment at 24 weeks. METHODS 365 treatment-naïve patients with T2DM (HbA1c 7.0%-10.0%) were treated with saxagliptin 2.5 mg(More)
PURPOSE To assess safety and efficacy of saxagliptin in older patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). PATIENTS AND METHODS This was a post hoc analysis of pooled data from older patients (≥65 years of age) from five 24-week phase III trials: three studies of saxagliptin versus placebo as an add-on therapy to metformin, glyburide, or a(More)
BACKGROUND It is important to establish the cardiovascular (CV) safety profile of novel antidiabetic drugs. METHODS Pooled analyses were performed of 20 randomized controlled studies (N = 9156) of saxagliptin as monotherapy or add-on therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) as well as a subset of 11 saxagliptin + metformin studies.(More)
BACKGROUND To compare the safety and efficacy of saxagliptin 2.5 mg twice daily (BID) versus placebo add-on therapy to metformin immediate release (IR) in patients with type 2 diabetes and inadequate glycemic control with metformin alone. METHODS This multicenter, 12-week, double-blind, parallel-group trial enrolled adult outpatients with type 2 diabetes(More)
BACKGROUND In four 24-week controlled studies, the antihyperglycaemic efficacy of saxagliptin was demonstrated in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus as add-on therapy to glyburide, a thiazolidinedione, or metformin, and when used in initial combination with metformin vs. metformin monotherapy in drug-naive patients. METHODS Data from these studies(More)
