Date:6/8/2009

g with diabetes have two- to four-times greater risk of cardiovascular disease compared to people who don't have diabetes, we are comforted to have data that showed patients treated with BYETTA had no increased risk of cardiovascular events and that BYETTA may offer a potential cardiovascular benefit."

Study Design and Findings

In this integrated analysis, 2,316 BYETTA subjects and 1,629 pooled comparator subjects were treated for a total of 1,072 and 780 patient-years of exposure, respectively. The unadjusted incidence of experiencing at least one CV event was 2.0 percent for BYETTA and 2.6 percent for pooled comparator; the relative risk between BYETTA and pooled comparator was 0.69 (95 percent confidence interval: 0.46-1.03). The Exposure Adjusted Incidence Rate (expressed as per 1,000 patient years) was 43.4 for BYETTA and 54.4 for pooled comparator with a relative risk 0.80 (95 percent confidence interval: 0.53-1.21). CV events included stroke, myocardial ischemia, myocardial infarction, cardiac mortality, arrhythmia, revascularization procedures and congestive heart failure.
