American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology Joint Science Advisory: AHA/ACC Issue Advisory on Diabetes Drugs and Heart Risk
Date:2/23/2010

DALLAS, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The data are inconclusive on heart risks from a class of blood sugar-lowering drugs called thiazolidinediones (TZDs) such as pioglitazone (Actos) or rosiglitazone (Avandia), but the medications should be used with close monitoring from healthcare providers according to a joint science advisory from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association.

The advisory is published online in both Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association and Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

The U.S. Senate Finance Committee released a report on Saturday following a two-year inquiry into the safety of the diabetes drug rosiglitazone, and the possibility of an increased incidence of adverse cardiovascular events.  Resulting news coverage has highlighted uncertainties about research on TZDs.
