  • What are the mechanisms underlying the CV benefits observed with GLP-1 receptor agonists? 0:40
  • Based on the CV outcomes trials with GLP-1 RAs, it is not clear yet whether there is a class effect 3:38
  • SGLT2 inhibitors: which mechanisms can explain the CV benefit ? 4:03
  • It is important to consider the types of patients included in trials when interpreting the results 6:13
  • The trial design affects what kind of data and insights can be obtained from it 8:38
  • The unexpected results with novel antidiabetic drugs raise questions on the pathophysiology of T2DM that deserve further study 9:13
