Do SGLT2 Inhibitors Decrease Risk for Major Cardiovascular Events in People with T2D?
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE:
Previous RCTs have shown that sodium glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors reduce the incidence of major adverse cardiovascular events in people with type 2 diabetes and previous cardiovascular disease
Observational studies have shown that SGLT2 inhibitors are superior to other antidiabetic drugs for reduction of major CVD events
Filion et al. (BMJ, 2020) compared the risk of cardiovascular events between SGLT2 inhibitors and dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors, another common antidiabetic drug, among people with type 2 diabetes
Multi-database retrospective cohort study and meta-analysis
Canadian Network for Observational Drug Effect Studies (CNODES) | Administrative healthcare databases
New users of a SGLT2 inhibitor (canagliflozin, dapagliflozin, empagliflozin)
Users of a DPP-4 inhibitor (alogliptin, linagliptin, saxagliptin, sitagliptin, vildagliptin)
Users of SGLT2 inhibitors matched to users of DPP-4 inhibitor
Comparisons between groups were calculated using adjusted hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals
Site specific results were pooled using random effects meta-analysis
Major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE)
Composite of myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, or cardiovascular death
