Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease: A review of new outcome data impacting practice

July 30, 2016 - Asian Interchange on Diabetes meeting - David Fitchett, MD – University of Toronto, Canada

Dr. David Fitchett recalls the history of outcome trials of antidiabetic drugs, culminating in the clear CV benefit obtained with an SGLT2 inhibitor recently shown in the EMPA-REG OUTCOME trial.

This lecture was recorded at the Asian Interchange on Diabetes meeting, held in Bangkok on July 30-31, 2016.
