Christopher Cannon, ADA 2020: Results of the Phase III VERTIS-CV Trial

Published Online: June 22nd 2020

It was a pleasure to speak to Christopher Cannon to discuss the much-anticipated results of the VERTIS-CV trial (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01986881) evaluating the efficacy and safety and cardiovascular outcomes of ertugliflozin in type 2 diabetes.


1. Could you tell us a little about the VERTIS-CV trial and its primary and secondary outcome data? (0:06)

2. What were the major safety findings, including the effects on diabetic ketoacidosis and acute kidney injury? (2:44)

3. How do these compare to data from the other SGLT2 cardiovascular outcome trials? (3:50)

4. Why do you think this study has not shown a statistically significant effect on reducing the incidence of CV disease death and heart failure hospitalisations? (4:42)

5. With an increasing number of SGLT inhibitors available, what factors should be considered in choosing between them? (6:18)
