SGLT2 inhibitors can slow progression of chronic kidney disease
(ERA-EDTA) The CREDENCE trial [3] provided evidence that the SGLT2 inhibitor Canagliflozin slows the progression of CKD in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and CKD with albuminuria. The Phase III DAPA-CKD trial [1] has now shown that the SGLT2 inhibitor Dapagliflozin can significantly slow CKD progression in all CKD patients, not only in those with diabetes. This breakthrough in kidney disease treatment goes back to an incidental study finding of Professor Christoph Wanner, President of the ERA-EDTA. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
