Authors: Huang H, Shetty S, Bauer E, Lang K Abstract OBJECTIVE: To estimate the proportion of patients with moderate to severe chronic kidney disease (CKD) whose initial DPP4-i dosage was concordant with prescribing information (label) recommendations in the United States. METHODS: Adult patients with T2DM who initiated a DPP4-i (linagliptin, sitagliptin, saxagliptin) between Jan 1, 2011 and Jun 30, 2014 were identified using electronic medical records and administrative claims, with index date being the date of first observed DPP4-i treatment. Patients were required to have CKD Stage 3b, 4 or 5 (eGFR value

The incidence of cardiovascular disease is more than three times higher in patients with diabetes than in those without [1 –3]. The East–West study has shown that the incidence of myocardial infarction (MI) in patients with diabetes and without a history of MI was similar to that of non-diabetic patients with a history of MI [4]. In addition, follow-up studies such as the subgroup analysis in the Action in Diabetes and Vascular disease: preterax and diamicron-MR Controlled Evaluation (ADVANCE) study revealed that albuminuria and a decrease in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) are further independent r...
