AIMS Progressive deterioration of glycaemic control in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) often requires treatment intensification. Dapagliflozin increases urinary glucose excretion by selective inhibition of renal sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2). We assessed the efficacy, safety and tolerability of dapagliflozin added to glimepiride in patients with(More)

INTRODUCTION Maintenance of drug efficacy and safety over the long term is important to investigate for progressive conditions like type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). This study aimed to evaluate whether efficacy of dapagliflozin added to glimepiride observed at 24 weeks was maintained at 48 weeks, and to provide further safety and tolerability data in(More)
INTRODUCTION CT-P13 is the first biosimilar to infliximab that has been approved for the same indications as its originator infliximab. No data are available on the effect of infliximab biosimilar on mucosal healing. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of CT-P13 induction therapy on mucosal healing in patients with ulcerative colitis [UC]. (More)
AIMS To evaluate the efficacy and safety of twice-daily dosing of dapagliflozin and metformin, exploring the feasibility of a fixed-dose combination. METHODS In this 16-week, phase III, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled study, adults who were receiving metformin administered twice daily (≥1500 mg/day) and had inadequate glycaemic control were(More)
BACKGROUND CT-P13 is a biosimilar drug of reference infliximab and is approved in some countries for use in some indications for which reference infliximab is approved, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The CT-P13 formulation is identical to that of reference infliximab and has similar physiochemical characteristics. However, even a small(More)
BACKGROUND Safety data of the 'real life' use of an infliximab biosimilar, CT-P13 in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are still lacking. Our aim was to assess the frequency and characteristics of infusion reactions during CT-P13 therapy in 13 Hungarian and 1 Czech IBD centres. METHODS Clinical and safety data was registered at fixed appointments. Trough(More)
BACKGROUND The evidence on the efficacy and safety of biosimilar infliximab (IFX) in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) is sparse. METHODS Consecutive IBD patients visiting our centre were included. One cohort composed of prospectively followed patients who were switched from original to biosimilar IFX between January and March 2015. The(More)
BACKGROUND Discontinuation of anti-TNF therapy in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) in remission remains a controversial issue. The aims of our study were to assess the proportion of patients who relapse after cessation of biological treatment, and to identify potential risk factors of disease relapse. METHODS Consecutive IBD patients who(More)
