Abstract :
[en] The cardiovascular (CV) and renal protection reported with empagliflozin in EMPA-REG OUTCOME is now confirmed with canagliflozin in CANVAS in patients with type 2 diabetes and high cardiovascular risk: similar and significant reductions in major CV events (-14 vs. -14%), in hospitalisations for heart failure (-35 vs. -33%) and in renal events (-39 vs. -40%). The greater reduction in CV mortality (-38 vs. - 13%) and all-cause mortality (-32 vs. -13%) in EMPA-REG OUTCOME than in CANVAS may be explained by the greater proportion of patients with CV disease (secondary prevention : 99 vs. 65%). In contrast to EMPA-REG OUTCOME, CANVAS did not show an increase in stroke (-10%, NS), but reported a higher rate of fractures and amputations with canagliflozin. Overall, these results support a class effect for the cardiorenal protection by inhibitors of sodium-glucose type 2 (SGLT2) cotransporters.
