Although funding was provided, the company played no role in conducting the analysis. All the studies were randomized, double-blinded, and controlled with placebo or active comparator. The period of time in which patients received treatment ranged from four months to 3.5 years.

In his analysis of 42 clinical trials, Dr. Nissen found that rosiglitazone raised patients' risk of heart attack and cardiovascular death by 43% and 64%, respectively in comparison to the use of a placebo or other anti-diabetes therapy.
