ADVANCE diabetes trial results confirm no evidence of safety risk
Date:2/28/2008

Montreal, February 28, 2008 - Data from the ADVANCE Study, involving 11,140 high-risk patients with type 2 diabetes, provides no evidence of an increased risk of death among those patients receiving aggressive treatment to lower blood glucose.

This contrasts findings from the 10,251 patient ACCORD trial which halted the intensive glucose control arm of the study 18 months early because a data review revealed that patients who received intensive treatment to lower blood glucose are at higher risk for death. While the trial will continue, patients will be transitioned from the intensive treatment arm (targeting A1c levels of <6.0 %) to the less intensive, standard treatment arm (targeting A1c levels of 7.0 to 7.9%).

Unlike what we saw in ACCORD, a rigorous review of ADVANCE data by the Data and Safety Monitoring Committee shows that the treatment strategy of intensively lowering blood sugar does not pose greater risk to our patients with type 2 diabetes, says Canadian lead investigator and member of ADVANCE Management Committee Dr. Pavel Hamet, professor of Medicine, Canada Research Chair of Predictive Genomics at Universit de Montral and Chief, Gene Medicine Services at Centre Hospitalier de lUniversit de Montral. ADVANCE is a landmark study and will continue as planned to completion. The results will provide crucial information to help us better reduce the significant health risks associated with type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes increases the risk of many complications, especially cardiovascular disease, which is the leading cause of death in people with diabetes. Both the ADVANCE and ACCORD studies examined the effects of intensive blood glucose and blood pressure control on the risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attack, stroke, or death from cardiovascular disease in patients with type 2 diabetes. A successful reduction in overall and cardiovascular mortality in the intensive blood pressure arm has been reported from t
