In the Empagliflozin, Cardiovascular Outcomes, and Mortality in Type 2 Diabetes (EMPA-REG OUTCOME) trial, empagliflozin demonstrated a reduction in cardiovascular events in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and pre-existing cardiovascular disease. This online course covers the evidence base on the use of the sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, empagliflozin, in the management of T2DM patients with heart failure and chronic kidney disease.
Professor Steven Kahn discusses the data from the EMPA-REG OUTCOME study. Professor Javed Butler, an investigator of the EMPEROR-Reduced trial presents new data on empagliflozin in reducing the risk of cardiovascular death and hospitalisation for heart failure. Professor Darren McGuire provides a commentary and analysis of emerging data of SGLT2 inhibitors from recently completed clinical trials.
