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)
