Dapagliflozin as an add-on to metformin plus sulfonylurea improved glycemic control and reduced body weight in patients with type 2 diabetes, according to recent study findings published in Diabetes Care.

Stephan Matthaei, MD, of the Diabetes-Zentrum Quakenbrück in Germany, and colleagues evaluated participants (mean age, 61 years) with an HbA1c of 7% to 10.5% receiving sulfonylurea and metformin who were assigned to receive dapagliflozin (Farxiga, Bristol-Myers Squibb and AstraZeneca) 10 mg/day (n=109) or placebo (n=109) to determine the effect on inadequate glycemic control.
