Clinical trials in diabetes and CVD: What did we learn?

Expert Meeting on CVD & T2DM

10' education - Mar. 22, 2018 - Filippo Crea, Angelyn Bethel, Eduard Montanya - Online CME

Filippo Crea, Angelyn Bethel and Eduard Montanya discuss the safety and efficacy results of recent trials evaluating GLP-1 RAs and SGLT2 inhibitors, and whether the observed effects represent a class effect or not.
