- New trial design approaches to assessing CV safety
- Clinical evidence that T2DM diabetic drugs can increase CV risk
- Diabetic drug development and CV safety
- Approaches to clinical analysis of CV risk
- Novel clinical trial approaches
- Future approaches to assessing T2DM drug development and CV safety
- QT experience as a model for furthering collaborative approaches/research in CV
"Recent data published in major medical journals suggests possible increase in cardiovascular (CV) risk associated with the use of certain drugs for the treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2DM)," explains Program Chair Philip T. Sager, MD, FACC, Vice President, Clinical Research, Cardiopulmonary and Metabolic Clinical Development, Gilead Sciences, Inc. "As a result, the Division of Metabolism and Endocrinology Products of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a new guidance in December 2008 recommending that all new T2DM drugs demonstrate CV safety in appropriately designed and powered outcome studies."
