Main results


In T2DM patients with albuminuria, liraglutide treatment was associated with reductions in circulating levels of CV risk biomarkers TNF-alpha, MR-proADM and MR-proANP. These findings support the hypothesis that liraglutide treatment may be associated with the reduction of inflammatory and CV risk biomarkers in high-risk patients.
