The FINANCIAL -- AstraZeneca today announced positive results from the Phase III DECLARE-TIMI 58 cardiovascular (CV) outcomes trial (CVOT) for Farxiga (dapagliflozin), the broadest SGLT2 inhibitor CVOT conducted to date.

The trial evaluated the CV outcomes of Farxiga vs. placebo over a period of up to five years, across 33 countries and in more than 17,000 adults with type-2 diabetes (T2D) who have multiple CV risk factors or established CV disease.

In the DECLARE (Dapagliflozin Effect on Cardiovascular Events)-TIMI 58 trial, Farxiga met its primary safety endpoint of non-inferiority for major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE).

Farxiga achieved a statistically-significant reduction in the composite endpoint of hospitalisation for heart failure (hHF) or CV death, one of the two primary efficacy endpoints. Additionally, fewer MACE events were observed with Farxiga for the other primary efficacy endpoint, however, this did not reach statistical significance.
