Vildagliptin efficacy, safety similar to Januvia

September 1, 2015

Similar efficacy and safety were found between once-daily vildagliptin and once-daily Januvia among patients with type 2 diabetes and severe renal impairment, according to research in Diabetologia.

In a randomized, double blind, parallel-arm study of patients with both type 2 diabetes and severe renal impairment across 87 outpatient centers in the United States and Brazil, researchers found that, during 24 weeks, participants in both treatment arms saw reductions in HbA1c with most tolerating both therapies well.
